To be fair, the army isn't right for everybody. Moreover, it's not an easy job. It's a high stress job, and, depending on my trade, my decisions as an officer could get people killed. Higher risks of depression, job dissatisfaction, and perceived negative mental well-being are all associated with regular force officers relative to civilian management counterparts.

I'd probably join the army if I lived in the Soviet Union.

Though they had conscription so I wouldn't have had a choice.

I will personally never join, but I'll never judge someone poorly for making a living in a reputable institution

Less than 1% chance of becoming a fatality in Afghanistan if you were deployed there as CF personnel. Less than 5% chance of being a combat casualty. About 85-90% probability to return from deployment without dying or being wounded (either through combat or non-battle injuries).

"The 20-year-old, who is originally from the Crumlin area of Dublin and was brought up in care, also admitted breach of the peace during the incident on July 3, 2011. He has 138 previous convictions."

That's gotta be the high score.

Watching people put up the Christmas tree in the other building is highly entertaining
