Ooompa Loompa skateboarding. Totally awesome.
When Elvis was drafted into the US Army in March, 1958, his monthly pay went from $100,000 to $78.
That is a big paycut! Yuck...
Seeeriously. I would cry.
--- LJ's giving me lots of errors. You too? This is how the last great black out started. RuhRoh. :(
Ya, I was getting some strange errors too. I was afraid I was going to lose my FIRST first post spot ;_;
FIRST POST :) Yeah, my comment sucked. I just wanted to scribble something down so I could still be first. My real comment is, I wonder if he was treated differently by the drill sergeants during basic? I wonder if they would be harder on him?
yup. my boyfriend just got medically disccharged from the navy and they pay him less than a minimum wage job would pay him. doing the same thing out of the navy, he is gonna be payed at least double.
the military can kiss my ass.
Your Elvis story made me think of this random tidbit (I think Random should get a little random in return, right?)
We had several high school matinee performances of Mother Courage and Her Children, which is of course, a play about soldiers and war. We hosted a talk-back session after between the students, the cast, and the director Tony. They asked pretty standard questions, some of them pretty intelligent ones, and then one kid said:
Kid: How much money do actors make?
Tony: Well I'm actually not at liberty to tell you that, but it certainly isn't something we do for the money.
Kid: Then why do you do it?
Tony: *getting defensive* What? What do you wanna be after you graduate, an investment banker?
Kid: No, I think I'm gonna join up with the Marines.
Tony: Working there you'll make less money than we do and you'll probably be killed.
LOL!!!! guess you gotta admire his forthrightness. I guess he should have told the kid about Elvis.
Oompa Loompa's scare me :( :(
Its ok, lol. I'm such a chicken shit sometimes.
