The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.


You know the Army recruiters aren’t good at their jobs when they bring a poster with “Army Strong” to a nerd hangout. If they’d used “Army SMART” they’d have better luck.

“Sir, we don’t have the launch codes here. However, you can obtain them by going to this link.”
“Uh, I wasn’t asking for the launch codes. I just want to know where I can get an F-16.”
“Uh, that’s classified.”
“And the launch codes aren’t?”
Army recruiter looks confused

Recruiter: Son, where do you see yourself in 10 years?


Student: Well, I want to be an engineer and mentor FRC. 2021 will definitely be one of the years we go to worlds. I can feel it. *cough* *cough*

The sergeant is explaining that in his role commanding four tanks and 18 men is a lot like being the Alliance Captain, except the stakes are even higher than at the Championship event.

Recruiter: “What are you interested in?”
Student: “I’m into robotics?
Recruiter: “How does flying one of our State-of-the-Art UAV?”
Student: “Wow!. That would be cool.”
Recruiter: “Okay, let’s sign you up.”
Later that day.
2nd Recruiter: “What did you sign that student up for?”
Recruiter: “Motor pool.”

Recruiter: “In fact, most of our positions don’t require proper wearing of safety glasses. You should fit in just fine.”

“No, the Army does NOT practice coopertition with our adversaries”

I’m looking for a job that doesn’t involve any work, but even finding one would involve work.
