Triple post: I officially fail.

How does that make you feel/fit in with your beliefs since i know that you would like to join the army?

I want to join the military to serve my country, but I'm not interested in the combat arms. I would like to be an EOD(Explosive Ordinance Disposal) or CBRN(Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) officer. I won't kill anyone if I can avoid it.

Thank you very much.
@Bladerunner: I don't plan on a military career. I'll just serve a few years. And veterinarian is a far more benevolent(for lack of a better word) career than chemical engineer.

Sauf pour la language francaise. Il est acceptable de manquer de respect que la language, car nous avons tous le detestent. Je blague. Je me moque de la langue francaise parce que mon francais est mechant. Et mes blagues sont terribles.


Lol. C'est n'est pas vrai. La language francaise est tres belle. Aussi, ton blauges sont tres tres mal

Je suis d'accord avec votre dernier releve, a propos mes blagues. xP Mais j'aime bien les langues espagnole et allemande mieux que la langue francaise.
I'll provide translations, since we're not supposed to talk in other languages on AG.
I basically said "Except for French, we're allowed to disrespect that language because we all hate it. Just joking. I make fun of the French language because my French is bad. And my jokes are terrible."
Zakyman said "It is not true. The French language is very beautiful. Also, your jokes are very very bad."
To which I replied "I agree with your latter statement about my jokes. But I like the Spanish and German languages better than the French language."

Well it depends on the class. If you are in Sunday school you learn about gospel stories and such. If your in priesthood you learn about magnifying your priesthood duties. In sacrament meeting you hear other speakers get up and talk about different topics.

I assume you're talking about the church services like Testimony and Sacrament, not Sunday School.
Well, in Sacrament(which is every Sunday) the services start with a prayer, then the bishop talks, then there's more prayer, we sing some hymns, some other people get called up and they talk, and more prayer, and more talking...what exactly we're praying or talking about depends on the day, it could be anything. Also on Sacrament meetings, we do the Sacrament. It's like Communion in the Catholic Church, the deacons pass around bread and water(instead of wine because little kids drink it) and we drink it and eat it and say some more prayers and quote some more verses from the Bible and Book of Mormon.
Testimony is on the first Sunday of every month. Basically, anyone who wants to can go up and talk. But they can't talk about just anything, it's usually something like, "My name is ___ and I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I believe in __ because __." But you'd be surprised how many people talk about random weird stuff during Testimony meetings. There was even a guy once who went up there and started advertising to us "Buy silver! Buy silver!" and usually the bishop politely tells those people(and the really long-winded people as well) to sit down.
