I don't see any problem with it, other than the obvious "You could get killed in some backwater nation." Not like you'd have to be a frontline grunt, anyways. Could always be a mechanic, or a pencil-pusher.

Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28

Yeah, I dunno. I've been giving it a lot of thought lately. I want the "experience" of it all. I want to be able to see, do, and experience things most other people would never get to do. Plus, Guns <3. They'd also help, if not put me through school.

My problem with it is fighting for what I believe to be a broken and corrupt government. Just seems like a sweet deal.

Find a nation you like near the top of this list. Move there. Enlist.

Obviously there would be many hoops to jump through in the process.

Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28

I have no qualms about fighting for AMERICA. I mean, c'mon, AMERICA. You listed the reasons why I'd join, particularly the financial stability (if I survive, PROMOTIONS, and such). I am planning on enlisting, probably, after I graduate, though, so I'll have a degree and not start out at the bottom of the totem pole.

Huh. South Sudan has the same level of government corruption as the Atlantic Ocean.

Also, seems like a very positive rating for the Harper Government. Not saying they shouldn't be yellow, but things are getting worse.

Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28

I'd be down for Australia, maybe. Did you know the minimum wage in Australia is $15 dollars an hour? Most of the US and especially where I'm from the minimum wage is $7.25. Sure they pay a bit more for gasoline and other such imports, but overall they have a much much healthier economy. Which, to me, is something to think about.

Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28

And the Malaysian govt wondering why highly competent Malaysian run to Australia and don't want come back............

because we Malaysian believe in befriending the ministers who will give us million dollar projects and then we sub it to some people and enjoy the money while doing nothing.

aaaaaaand if anyone question us, we put them in jail for disturbing the peace.

god I hate my country.

It's actually $15.51 as of last year, and I now have a reason for them to stop bitching about paying more for everything. I doubt I will have to though, given that the only Aussie I know makes significantly more than minimum.

Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28

Why are people comparing the Australian and American dollar like they're in any way the same currency? Just because it says "dollar" doesn't mean the exchange rate is equal. Jesus.

Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28

The exchange rate doesn't have to be equal to compare the two. Even so, I haven't seen anyone compare them like they're the same, that's just stupid.

Obviously I wouldn't want to make my money in Aussie and spend in the US. Exchange rates aside, Australia still has the more comfortable economy.

Are these the same dollars? Or Australian vs US dollars? Also, can you even compare minimum wage without giving some information on quality/cost of living in each country? It is a terrible comparison just to say that because you get more minimum wage in Australia things are better - especially if you aren't talking the same currency.

Australian vs US dollars. The cost of living in Aus. is considerably higher than the US due to its large amount of imports. Likewise, the amount of pay is considerably higher to compensate for that. Like the US though many people there make above minimum wage. Not only that, they only have %5 percent unemployment rate compared to the %8 percent we have here. No doubt that the US economy is much larger, but clearly Australia's is the more stable one. Australia was also one of the only country's that didn't go into recession during this last financial crisis. Also seeing as how the exchange rate is $0.97 to one of our dollar, I don't see how it's a far stretch to compare the two.

Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28

They're close enough to the same. I always thought it would suck to live in Australia and have to pay a quite a bit more for almost everything, but if their minimum wage is 50% higher than ours with a roughly equivalent currency then the additional costs are negligible.
