Nope, you have to have a degree first and score high enough on the Asvab to try for OCS school. Mind you it's a lot harder now, so try and get high grades as close to or above a 4.0. since you are basically competing against all the other candidates.
Also a Associates will not work you do need a Bachelors. Good luck man.
#128 - medewu (07/12/2014) [-]
Do you happen to know his full scores over. or like it will say a flat out number. basically 97th percentile is good. I fer one scored a 94 on my Asvab test. so all the jobs were open to me which included OCS, and so forth. I just didn't have a degree or I would have taken it.
#131 - elcreepo (07/12/2014) [-]
No, I didn't ask what all his scores where. Just knew he did really good even on the engineering part (though he's not an engineer nor trained to be one).
His recruiter told him that with his scores he can have whatever job he wants. He doesn't have a degree, but can he still get into OCS if he gets his degree after basic? He's going to Fort Benning I believe, in August.
For some reason he wanted to start from the ground up in the National Guard.
#135 - medewu (07/12/2014) [-]
Yeah, then he scored amazingly high. He can go to basic, ship out as come back from basic E1 depending if he went active or not take college classes. make sure to tell him to do amazing like I said before, 4.0 or better because it's a competition basically for the Officer spots. But yeah tell him good look, he'll have fun ;)
#139 - elcreepo (07/12/2014) [-]
He's not going to active duty since it's reserves
I think, anyway. If he does I don't mind, since seeing combat might be just the thing he's looking for out of life before he settles down.
But great, his dream is to serve the country and I really want to see him succeed. My cousin is an army wife herself and while it's challenging it's also rewarding.

That actually isn't true. The only form of supression of the radiation is the concrete they poured on it. Uranium 235 (The form of uranium that was used by Chernobyl) has a half life of 703,800,000 years. We're a few months over 28 years into that. If you don't know how half lives work, the term comes from how long it takes for the material to decay halfway. It divides itself in half after each time period, meaning it goes from 703,800,000 to 351,900,000 and then to 175,950,000 and so on.
Basically, It's never going to be safe to live in again for the known possible future.
#130 - fistpump (07/05/2014) [-]
You need to take into account that half-life is not something that is literal.
A newly-formed and perfectly preserved radioactive isotope with a half life of 10 years will not degrade to half of it's original potency exactly 10 years after it is created, it will constantly degrade over time, and people have measured the rate at which every known isotope degrades, and we have used that to predict how long it will take for each isotope to degrade to half of its original potency.
This means that an area that is highly exposed to our new radioactive isotope will take up to 10 years to become completely radiation-free, as-opposed to it taking exactly 10 years.
The isotope could reach a point where it is no longer dangerous to humans, yet still could not have degraded to even half of it's potency, it all depends on the amount of radioactive substance. Although the initial amount of radioactive substance in Pripyat was huge (enough to kill you should you walk there unprotected for just a few minutes, even seconds in some areas) the amount there now is relatively scarce. You can walk around the town unprotected for at least a few hours before you should probably consider hauling ass.
The reason why it is reasonably safe now by comparison to 20 years ago is because of the weather. Environmental factors. Rain can dilute and wash away the radioactive particles, the soil can churn and bury them, and the wind can blow radioactive debris and particles away.
Scientists predict that Pripyat will be completely safe (not free of radiation, but still safe) in around 600 years. It's a long time, sure, but it's not exactly the foreseeable future.

Wow. I should have read this back before I posted it.
When I said "This means that an area that is highly exposed to our new radioactive isotope will take up to 10 years to become completely radiation-free, as-opposed to it taking exactly 10 years. " I was basically talking out my ass.
What I was trying to say is, it will take 10 years for the radiation to be halved, but it could take less time for humans to be able to inhabit the area again, because the radiation may have receded to a point where it is no longer dangerous.
Sorry about that.

Depends on what you call "propaganda". The whole book is pretty much an excuse for Heinlein to express his political views. Like many of his other books. Well, maybe I went a bit far saying that, but I was first going in expecting action and adventure in a sci-fi universe, and instead got a several hundred pages worth of lecture with some actioney bits thrown in to try and keep the reader somewhat entertained. Like so many of his other books.
#112 - themarineelite (06/27/2014) [-]
When I say Propaganda, I meant that in the book, citizens are not brainwashed into military service like they are in the movie, the option is open to them. Don't get me wrong, while the book was an excuse for Heinlein to express his Political views, the actual federation propaganda in the book is near to none.

as far as I can remember, the movie actually was saying "yeah, this world the writer dreamt up is borderline retarded, so let's make it a blatant dig at him" which is why there's all the nazi symbolism, the outlandish amounts of propaganda, people are dumb as bricks, etc
