    is this the Shivvy mega thread for the day? common chief. I wait all night for the next drama you can whip up. Never get into politics. you get maniacs crawlin out the woodwork.

    Just start a thread like: So today I ran outta toilet paper and used my wife's tampon. Boom. That's how you make a mega thread.

    First a uniform would have to be fashioned that allows for hipster neckbeards. So no.

    If some country invades the US, hell yes. First we'd take all of the Canadians to defend us though.

    We could also sort of hint that we will make the illegals citizens if they fight for us. Then we could always go "lol sorry" afterward.

    That's why this "War On Terror" will never end. Americans have grown wise to the "War Declaration" bullshit. Or have they? :coffee:

    I'd enlist again without needing to be drafted.

    Infantry driven ground wars are thing of the past, unless defending from invasion I don't see draft being necessary.

    No...they learned from their last mistake. There are plenty of people who want to be in the military.

    No, because when they try to round up gang members who were drafted and didn't show up, there will be war here.

    Plus, there would probably be a jump in the # of face and neck tattoos, unless the military changes their rules.

    If past wars are any indication, I already served and wouldn't have to go.

    So I get to stay behind and impregnate all lonely housewives.
