Well we would need to know which college as >>23690 says. Maybe we could track down the application deadline for you as well.

I doubt there is any urgency on a college application. I'm surprised you even need to do an interview so it might be the case that you haven't been given a deadline because there is not one.

Hi, britifa.gs. I'm from Poland. I have a question, because I want to join the British Army and I'm aware that I need to be a British citizen or a citizen of one of the countries of The Commonwealth to join. Where/what is the easiest way to do this?

Are there any ways I can become a citizen of one of these countries quickly? I do not want to wait very long.

As I said in the other thread, there is no chance of you joining unless you're a British citizen. The only time I've seen a European in the British Army was a pair of Germans born in Paderborn who had a British parent. You're much better off joining the Polish army (who are a lot more competent than stereotypes allow for) or the FFL.

Join the FFL instead. There's tonnes of your fellow Pawels and Jans there and you get French citizenship after 5 years of service or immediately after you get injured in combat. IIRC they call it "French citizenship through spilled blood".

No. French by spilt blood happens if you are injured in combat, your citizenship is then fast tracked.

Trying to join FFL unless you have good level infantry experience is not likely to be successful despite the basic physical criteria not being that difficult. I was going to join after the army and could beat beat them by a very comfortable margin.

FFL isn't really a thing you do to get citizenship, it's more something for anyone who wants to be a professional soldier long term. It's also quite cult like in ways you don't find in other units.

You seem like a good guy, are you hoping to join the British Army for citizenship? If so you can just come over and find a job. British people have gotten used to Poles and we're happy to give you advice on settling in so you don't end up getting taken advantage of. As >>23680 has said citizenship is an arduous process but if you settle in you can get permanent residence and eventually become a citizen.

If you feel you should earn citizenship then the police force is open to EU citizens. There will be a written test but if you come to live in the UK and use English speaking imageboards regularly you can pass this. It will take awhile (my military application process took a year) so you have plenty of time to get adjusted.

If you want to get citizenship in another country through military service the American military may be a better bet. The pay is worse but they take care of you and American soldiers are decent people outside of the marines.

I feel both of you are right. There isn't a one size fits all, so there will be rudderless people who lack purpose and need something to get up for, and there will be people who have their time eaten up by work, when they could be doing better things.

I was extremely depressed and almost a shut-in when I was a dolescum. I would have suicidal thoughts at my wasteful existence and kept thinking about the whole purpose for my existence.

I found a low-level admin job where I put files in a folder for seven hours a day, five days a week. Although I felt better, and became more outgoing, I was still clinically depressed. I still felt I lacked purpose, and I still do feel that way many times a day. My mental health started to get better when I started trying new hobbies. Obsessing over fixing my bike, and trying to fix broken TVs, remote controllers, phones that I buy off ebay for a little amount made me feel better for some reason.

So maybe, some people would prefer chopping wood, taking a break and socialising, then chopping some again and then going to bed.

The key benefit to having a rudder is that you are in charge of and can direct it. In that respect, someone compelled by circumstance to get up and work to subsist is still very much rudderless.

You're confusing capitalism with an ideology that rewards innovation. Money creates the illusion of scarcity and that illusion is vital to the economy which is a Sacred Cow. We manufacture scarcity, It is created by built-to-fail components that could be made to last decades, but aren't to keep selling products cheap and in many other ways besides.

I don't want to sound weird or anything, but why are white people so rude? I got a job at an IT firm, and have been working there for a couple of weeks now. Today, I saw a second co-worker in the tube, and she looked me right in the eyes and ignored me.

Last week, I saw another one, and after waving at him, he looked at me for a moment and just ignored me. I asked a mate why they do these things, but he told me that people are just like that in this country. It seems very rude and very sad. Back home, if I met a workmate, we would have a chat and maybe even invite each other to our houses. But here, it is so depressing. It is so cold and weird. White people don't have a sense of community and comradery. I don't understand why.

The other lad pointing out that it is in fact a sign of courtesy is on point, it's how people cope. But it is worth taking this a step further and pointing out that people generally take on the manner of the environment they are exposed to. It's not so much that Londoners, Westerners or white people are innately colder than other groups, rather we have crafted a terrible environment for ourselves wherein we have very little personal space.

Adam Smith wrote that the division of labour causes people to become 'as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human creature to become', just by virtue of having to repeat the same actions every day to earn a living. Similarly I think the increasing, unpredictable demands on our time, less accessible living space, as well as the monetisation of everything we can stick a value on, will make us as asocial, selfish and defensive as it is possible to be.

You could be forgiven for thinking this is a racial or class thing, but you will notice that people of any background are forced to adopt this manner after living a certain length of time in that environment. Not because they want to, or because it's their character, but rather just to cope. There are exceptions among groups who retain a sense of community, but this is usually in spite of UK culture rather than because of it.

The building block of our society is supposed to be the family, but even these bonds are breaking down due to precarious work patterns (where working class women in particular suffer). I can't speak for everyone here, but anecdotally there's more competition between family than cooperation. I haven't even met all of my cousins, let alone built any meaningful relationships with extended family; immediate family is made to be difficult enough.

I do apologise for calling it a white people issue. You guys have educated me. It must be a cultural thing.

I went into work today and I met the co-worker who ignored me, and she was friendly and cordial. I can't fault her for her behaviour, although I do find her insincere now.

I told a good friend about what had happened and he laughed at me. "Welcome to London," he said. He advised me to get really drunk with them the next time we go out or something. The thought of needing alcohol to become sincere and friendly is weird to me. In any event, I guess I leant my lesson. In Britain, work people are work people, and they should not cross over into your non-work-related life. I guess I understand why people in this country would need posters telling them about how bad loneliness is.

Bit of a long shot but here goes.

Any of you fine lads speak Mandarin? I'm relearning it again and am at the most basic stages but am starting to get the swing of it.

I was wondering if anybody wanted to swap (presumably a spam or junk) email addresses and perhaps converse once or twice every few days?

I did try signing up for a few sites like interpals but if you don't respond for 13 hours a day nobody is interested and it can be frustrating. Nothing too intense, just casual messages to practice writing and reading some basic stuff.

This has got a lot of brows raised over at The Other Place. Apparently this Japanese fellow was driven out of 2chan for being caught selling users data behind the scenes. I know a lot of us either used to or still sometimes visit 4chan, so do you think this will amount to much or will it be business as usual?

My worry is refugees, especially Indians. They'll want a designated shitting board and I don't think that'll work.

Hunters drive over bear at night, ostensibly by mistake. Could happen to anyone.
