Military Enlistment
    #806975 - 02/29/16 06:09 PM (8 months, 30 days ago)

Well, I've given up making puppets on the shroomery, so I figure I'll just leave my progress here for anyone who cares. Maybe someone will relay the information back to the shroomery to the few that care to hear about it.

Here's the time-line so far.

02/22/16: Met with USMC recruiter for the first time, took a pre-ASVAB test, passed
02/24/16: Met with USMC recruiter at a closer location, hashed things over
02/29/16: Met with USMC recruiter, filled out medical paperwork, copied social security card and birth certificate, filled out basic paperwork, selected "Taoism" for religious preference

Now I'm just waiting for them to clear my medical history, and then I'll be headed to MEPS hopefully within 1-2 weeks. From there it will likely end up being around 8 months till I ship out to boot camp.

P.S. it was funny when he asked about the religious preference, he was like, "I usually just put everyone under Christian." I was like, "Nah I'd rather be classified Taoist.", he was like, "Wtf is taoist?"
Anyways, all I know is that if I get dead oversees at least I'll have a yin-yang over my grave instead of a fucking cross. lol

I have both my grandpaps dog tags.  They listed your religion on them.  I could see how that might be a problem with what is going on now days.  I probably would have "mushroomed" the recruiter and said stamp N/A on that tag.  "I believe in my hog tooth sir, stamp that on there".

Yeah that's what I figured. That why I selected Taoism. I mean out of all the "religions" out there, Taoism makes the most sense to me. Plus if I get killed I'll get a badass yin-yang on my military tombstone. lol

You win the game, if you don't get killed.  You're gonna want to win this game, a yin yang grave you'll never see is a bunk consolation prize.

True that. Here's some fucked up news though... Turns out I might be disqualified because of my chest. I have a concaved chest... Apparently some people were able to get waivers for it back in 2011, but I have a feeling in today's military climate getting a waiver is going to be near impossible...

What does this mean? Means I might be rat-fucked out of the military...

Turns out I might not be disqualified because of it. I'm just going to cross my fingers and wait and see what happens. Should know in a week or two.

The shroomery's downfall has been/will be it's chosen mods.  I think it's safe to say the "glory days" are far past.  It's defiantly taken a turn, and the one man who is supposed to keep things regulated is off sucking a bong somewhere..  there is no structure, accountability.  It's kind of just become half assed "wild west" scenario.

Which is kind of a shame, because the potential of what could be, given the matter dealt with at hand and the format already in place... could have led somewhere.  But..  like so many times in this life, the 'infrastructure' crumbles and goes to shit once it gets comfortable..

Niggas been building up a website for years and then let it go to shit because they bring in a bunch of fag mods on a whim while they're out doing more important shit and completely wrote off that whatever website..  and now a bunch of fag mods run in packs not making any kind of logic..

Couldn't have said it better myself bro. But hey, let's be honest, the site's been around for nearly two decades. That's a pretty good accomplishment; I'm surprised it's lasted so long actually. Shame is that more people seem to be dabbling in psychedelics, which is leading to more membership, but yeah, the moderation is terrible in my opinion. People can't take a joke, and people are banned for near-to-nothing, yet others who have mods in their pockets don't get banned for shit.

I just wish the growery was more active, because from what I've seen the mods here are chill as fuck.

But yeah I don't know, I've searched for other forums that are as active and diverse and open to psychedelics and more 'off-topic' discussion as on the shroomery, but I've yet to find anything that comes even close.

I honestly think a big part of the problem is the atmosphere of the drug community in general though. There is such an intense wave of die hard politically-correct people and then there are those who seem to be die-hard conservatives. Basically Koods vs Prisoner, etc etc. Maybe it's because it's election season?

All I know is it seemed pretty fucking hard to find many users who were moderate. Seemed like a combination of older users dedicated to their political parties, and then younger users who don't really know shit and thus automatically differ to the extreme-liberalism because of college.

There also seemed to be a significantly large percentage of users that were severe addicts. People addicted to either uppers or downers, and that seemed to really exacerbate a lot of the negativity and conflict on the forum as well. Then there were the groups of drama-queens and snitches; treant, vinsue, rrv2, etc. that really did a lot of damage to the board in general imo.

Oh well. Fuck it. I've given up on making puppets on that bitch. :tongue2:

It is what it is.

When we die, we will all relive in perpetuity every online thread-o-drama we ever took part in. It will be the 17th level of Dante's Hell. A new edition. forever. Can you imagine?
