Shit I didn't realize those things were so cheap. Does the note make a big difference (Alto C, etc)?

I'm taking a gander at these

And maybe this one in particular

  An alto C would be good; since the many popular singers are in that key, both male and female. Check out this guy kill Dragonforce with a 12 hole zelda one like you were eyeballing.

Amazing comment discussion under the results tab of this page got me to thinking....

**** the World

It is surprising no one argued the technology side of it all. We do not possess medical practices to healthily and safely remove pain. What we have is Opiates, for the most part Morphine, great for stabbing into your battle buddy out in the field when he takes a bullet to the shoulder and is crying in pain or for when you are in a horrible car accident and a bone is sticking out of your arm but you don't know whose bone it is. Great for emergencies and short periods of time separating strict dosage periods. But people get stuck on them for long periods of time because of their terminal illnesses causing myriad of problems, some doctors can solve some they cannot. What doctors do to fight increasing amounts of pain is to increase the dosage to a level that combats the pain. So the doctor keeps pumping it in until they either pass out or stop visibly feeling pain. Sometimes the patients survive but it is a battle each and every time. Pain vs morphine but in the end the pain will win for the morphine can only do so much. This battle of the morphine vs the pain kills patients; doctors know this and some patient do not. Many patients want that final decision of how and where they die the decision they should have.

Our knowledge of medicine is still rudimentary at best, we have antiquated means for relieving pain and the one thing that truly can give the patients the choice of ending the pain is illegal in many place because the medical professionals who are fighting to keep these people alive are doing it because there is money behind not allowing people to make the choice of dying of not. There is jobs and money, millions of it behind keeping these terminally ill people alive and as long as possible while incurring the most costs they can possibly drag out of these people and their families.

Until we have the technology to heal these people and or remove them of their pain, side effect free, there will always be people trying to profit in keeping a motion like this dead Letting the terminally ill end their lives their own way, on their own time, and at the place of their choosing brings little to no money to these doctors fighting against the right for these terminally ill patients to have the option to choose their own death.

This house supports Legalizing Assisted Death because of libertarianism. We believe it is more important to be able to have the choice then it is to stop everyone from doing it for the sole purpose of protecting the few who might make a choice they regret. Protect the few so the many suffer? That doesn't sound right to me and it shouldn't sound

Hey y'all, been a long time since I posted here (We're talking since before serv got shit canned) so I doubt many of you will remember me but I finally found a reason to do so again.

I have realized I have finally reached a point where I am mature enough and ready to admit the best possible course of action for me at this point is to join the military. I am 25 years old, if that's relevant.

My question to you folks, is which branch do you feel is the best for someone who is genuinely interested in developing a career, preferably in an Asian language and eventually teaching? (I am willing to a couple other jobs as well, I'm just looking for branch feedback)

I am currently leaning toward the Air Force or Navy, but I've heard the Navy has really shitty deployments in the sense that you can very possibly be stuck on a ship for over a year with no internet doing the same shit everyday for that whole time. (Then again my family has navy history so my blood tells me to be a sailor despite this) Anyone with any experience care to share?

In fact, anyone who is in the military or has recently served please share your general experiences and memorable moments, green text or w/e, so I don't create a total /soc/ tier shitpost.

If this thread is misplaced or retarded, mods please feel free to delete. I don't mean to clutter up the board or be a faggot, it may have been a while since I've been here but I still respect the lot of you and this site a great deal, so I was hoping to get some feedback from here.

You're not going to slay a dragon on top of a mountain with your sword or anything like that, but you will become INTIMATELY familiar with getting bossed around by complete idiots just for their amusement, paperwork related carpal tunnel syndrome, and probably a fucking floor buffer. Enjoy.

Or go finish school and go in as an officer, and let some other faggot shine your floors for you.


>instead of being an employee with rights you're a peon who has to listen to the peon who has been there slightly longer than you

He should really focus on that sentence for a minute. Reallllly let it sink in, before he decides to enlist instead of finishing college and waiting to go in as an officer, or better, working as a civilian contractor.
>> No. 93263 ID: 1fb1a6

It depends on your desired endgame. Military service is highly desired by civilian contractors who do work for the government. Relevant experience and delicious security clearance will catapult you ahead of the "I just graduated with a BA in political science and have never had a job in my life" crowd.

I do not recommend joining the military or working for the feds.

That aside, why do you believe that the military is your best possible course of action in your life (at this point)?

But for linguistics, I think Chair Force or Navy have the highest need. Both have very large SIGINT/spook groups that require translators.

If it's just over the duration of training periods, even extended technical schools I can live without internet, its the idea of -multiple long-term periods- over the course of my enlistment that sounds a little intimidating. 1 year without internet is doable when I have other things distracting me, 4 long possibly boring years with long periods of no internet might be an issue on the other hand. I could even do that if its a job I really enjoy, but seeing as there's no guarantee I'll get that I just want to minimize my risks as much as possible, so that in the event I do get stuck with a shit job I don't want I have a way to stay sane.
Otherwise thanks for the info and advice.

>Also might I ask, why an Asian language?
I just have the most interest in those, Korean and Japanese in particular. Pretty sounding languages in my opinion, with cultures and histories I actually find interesting and give a shit about. Sucks cause I have 0 interest in Arabic or middle eastern culture and language.

>might try and find someone active duty who isn't a recruiter, preferably who's in that field.
>Welcome back and good luck.

Sound advice, and thanks!

What's a good response to the "guns only purpose is to be death machines" argument you see from anti2A types? The "logic" being that even though cars cause way more deaths per year, it doesn't matter since they aren't designed purely to kill.

Pic not related. Or maybe it is. Who knows.

>guns are only designed to kill

Pointing out the absurdity is best, I find.

Like, for instance, "so is the bow and arrow - would you ban those too? what about swords?".

If they try the "but it's different" thing, mention how crossbows were banned by the Pope and were once the most frightening and effective handheld weapon system and that they are still plenty dangerous today.

Also point out that some people can only be stopped by violence. And, because firearms are one of the most effective tools for doing just that, they are useful for society.

Really? We lost power for a week in early 2014 when the tornado came through. Given I live in a nice neighborhood and almost everyone had a generator. I actually did see the cops drive through once, which they nearly never do. I'm 1/2 mile from their station oddly enough. I also live in Oklahoma even the city isn't a technologically dependent metropolis by any means.

Not bad.

Yes, the troll approach. My new favorite to any absurd argument. For some reason; it seems to make more sense to troll idiots than actually use logic.

They probably eat meat. I bet there's a machine designed to kill, that kills that meat for them. So it should also be banned correct?

But personally, nah... It's highly likely they're of the far left. So, get them good...

Agree. Then go into how dead people are voting and that is destroying the government that so dutifully protects us. Well perhaps if we made voter registration the same as 2nd amendment registrations we could really curb voter fraud. After all, a threat to our government is a threat to all liberties is it not?

A printed gun is pretty much going to be inferior in every way to most of the things Americans have access to.

The point is not that it is a product.
The point is that it is possible now, everywhere, to anyone with a printer. This means that people are basically faced two choices for the future:
1. Live in a world where anyone with the few hundred to drop on a printer can create a very spooky piece of shitty plastic, and possibly do something bad with it.
2. Create and enforce draconian laws around any sort of the ever more affordable manufacturing capability that is becoming available to the average consumer.

Yes, making a "real" metal gun was entirely possible before, but in the mind of the public that was always in the realm of those "other people", the mysterious oil stained wizards who speak strange words like "lathes", "muh SAE", and "drill press".
But now your typical artfag student can just as easily print out a dickbutt sculpture from a file they downloaded off the internet, as they can do the same to make a "gun".

So this has people thinking, "What stops him from going fucking nuts with his infinite ABS murder machines".
You and I already know the answer is "The exact same fucking thing that typically keeps people from stabbing strangers or forcing children to drink bleach", but it's something Football Dad and Soccer Mom are just starting to come to terms with.

As a young, smart and ambitious university graduate, Mahsa could have been a model of the modern Iranian woman.
Instead, the 30-year-old symbolises a new generation of female drug users: well off, well educated and tech savvy but addicted to multiple synthetic drugs such as methamphetamine, methadone and sedatives as well as heroin.
Drug problems are not new in Iran. Opium smoking dates back to at least the 17th century, and the country has one of the highest rates of opiate addiction in the world, partly because it is a trafficking route from Afghanistan to Europe.

At least 6m out of 77.7m Iranians have drug-related problems, according to official reports.
Shisheh — a high-purity crystalline methamphetamine — has become the second most popular drug after opium among young people seeking an escape from social and economic hardship.
However, addiction is increasingly spreading across all social classes and affecting a rising number of women — a trend triggering alarm in the government.
The problem was first revealed in a 2011 study on the prevalence of addiction, says Zahra Bonianian, an adviser to the state-run Drug Control Headquarters for women and family affairs. “It was when we realised that the number of married female addicts was going up, the age of addiction going down while the educational level [of addicts] was high.”
The roots of the problem lie in the social change bubbling beneath the surface of Iranian society. Young adults, steeped in new ideas gleaned via the internet and social media, are increasingly rebelling against the traditional and Islamic strictures to which their parents conformed and seeking to emulate what they see as more modern norms. In recent years, the divorce rate in Iran has risen and marriage and birth rates have fallen.

At the same time, the Islamic regime has improved women’s access to higher education, and they now account for more than 60 per cent of graduates.
But young women in particular find themselves caught between increasing freedoms and educational opportunities on the one hand and the conservative values of their elders on the other.
“Girls and boys under 25 years old largely enjoy equal freedom in terms of social and educational activities, but girls have a more gloomy perspective, [seeing] more responsibilities ahead,” says Amir-Hossein Yazdani, a professor of psychology.

Highly educated girls “do not enjoy equal job opportunities, or they feel under pressure to behave like a traditional woman”, he says. “This is fanning fresh tendencies to addiction.”
