That feeling when you were having a really interesting game, and your opponent is leading, and then they disconnect. :(  I feel bad for them!

Right up until you see your rating go up.

Actually, they got reconnected!  And it was a good game!  And I lost.

I just went to my profile, saw the cake and realized that it's actually my birthday now.

I hope you're joking.

So now you can legally drink (in the USA)?

I have been legally drinking in Finland for three years already.

And no, I actually wasn't joking.

Why? There's all kinds of cool stuff there that I would never be able to experience anywhere else. I'm super excited about it.

As long as you're not getting shot up in a shitty war.

Well, we don't usually get involved in shitty wars here in Finland. It's been 70 years since the last time.

For healthy non-Jehovah's Witness men, a military service or the alternative service is required. For women and Jehovah's Witnesses, it's optional. Those who aren't physically or mentally healthy enough aren't allowed in. I would complete it even if it wasn't required, though, so I'm not super complaining, but in the grand scheme of things, this model kind of sucks in a multitude of different ways.

It's so ridiculous there is not more outrage about mandatory conscription that's only for males.

It probably just seems different coming from a US perspective since we can't seem to stay out of wars. It's our national pastime. There's more to say here, but it's likely RSP territory.

I opened a thread in RSP, curious what you believe there is to say about this.

I can't imagine many women are pissed about it, and men would look like wimps if they complained about it.

Very interesting. Without straying into RSP too much, I feel like it'd be good for defense from a nationalist standpoint, but I'm not sure I'd support a similar system in a country actively engaging in armed conflict like the USA. Regardless, kudos to you for serving.

I would complain about it if it hadn't been removed in germany. Mandatory serving in the military is unbelievably idiotic for anyone in my opinion.

While I'm happy we don't have it here, there are some decent arguments for some countries having National Service. I agree that if a country has it, it shouldn't be restricted to men.

You're it.
I am! But saying something stupid there made the annoying captchas go away for posting on Haddock's BSG game.
