    My unrealistic hopes are things like a Shetland pony, pygmy goat, a sheep, chickens, ducks, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, a hedgehog etc. I'd need acres of land for what I want tbh.

    1. Travel the world.
    2. Have a distinguished career in public service.
    3. Marry a decent person.
    4. Have decent children.
    5. Have a house in a decent community and make a name for myself.

    I should also like to fight in at least one war, not out of desire but out of public service and to experience what real evil is.

    Not any dumber than useless criticism with a pretense of superiority. Why exactly? I don't have any illusions about difficulty, but it's also true that war is an important part of society and life and I should like to experience it in some form.

    You're right, it isn't any dumber than my baseless criticism, but it's still dumb anyway. Go paintballing instead.

    I've already been paintballing. I get why you might say it is dumb, putting yourself in a position to suffer is by all accounts stupid, but it's because of this that I should like to experience it, a chance of experiencing what it really means to be suffering, I don't wish it upon myself but it is a testimony of millions of people who have fought for our rights and I think I might learn something from it.

    It's a very different ball game now to the rose-tinted stories of heroism from WWI & WWII you hear. In fact, we lose our rag if we're still in work after 10am on a friday
