Just This Guy saved me from myself

I recently posted a blog about being interested in becoming a Navy SEAL. Honor, bravery, nobility, camaraderie, integrity, and fucking up the shit of our enemies. The Warrior culture. Real Samurai stuff. I even had a couple of talks with a Navy recruiter.

Just This Guy, one of the more popular and best known writers on SOL, reminded me that there's no way I could tolerate military discipline, taking orders from stupid people or being told to do things that don't make sense. He's right of course. I'm turned on by bravery, nobility, honor and integrity and yes, that whole Samurai warrior mythology. But being a Navy SEAL or military anything will have to remain my fantasy de jour. What the hell was I thinking?

In the meantime, back to life as I know it. Thanks for the reminder Guy. You saved me. My hero :)
