Join a paramilitary. Shop around for your brand of war. If you don't like the Army's contract, there'll probably be someone else that'll take a smoker.

I suggest a Draft. Kinda like the NFL draft.

Wait till the corporations start their own armies. That's when the real fun'll start. Microsoft will have the SkyNET HK's and shit.

Don't they give soldiers little syrettes of morphine? Or is that just the medics? If so, definitely make friends with the medics.


Anyway, there was a news story in my local paper a few days after this thread was started saying that noone would be pursuing this policy.

I guess they were just trying to make the soldiers as healthy as they can be or make them focus in times of battle.I don't think soldiers will have time to smoke if their whole environment is in war.

Look to the left.

See that? It's the Lucky Strikes logo. Smoked by the average American soldier in World War II. These things were put in military rations. Why? Everybody smoked. If you didn't, you traded them for a hot dog.

I'm no soldier, but I smoke these things out of respect for every veteran in every war. When my cousin leaves for Iraq, he's getting a US Army Zippo, a pack of Lucky Strikes, and a cigarette case. Zippos have stopped enemy bullets before, so I can only hope I can give him something potentially useful.

Oh, and just so everyone knows, soldiers are so fit that smoking doesn't even really matter.

The irony is now, convicts trade cigarettes to avoid a hot dog.

Maybe you should go the other way and donate money to the Yellow Ribbon Fund?

Hopefully, his flak jacket will take care of that for him.

That is a dumb, stupid thing to say.

It's like saying "I smoke because it makes me look cool"

Personally, I smoke because I like it and I'm addicted. I smoke what gives me the best nicotine to taste ratio. Drum is my favorite. Buying a brand because it represents something is one of the reasons this nation of ours is in such a bad state.

I was going to reply to MrSmiley's post, but it was so ridiculous I just assumed that he was joking. :/

Hi Justin,This chapter has puzzled many. The point seems merely to be that the king should be above this fondness for sword-fighting.Sorry, but thats all I can really offer.
