Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I have been thinking about joining U.S.Navy as a civil engineer when I graduate. Would you please tell me what are the advantages/disadvantages about joining the Navy? Thanks!

Lazy-butt

P.S. I am female!

A: Dear Lazy,

Disadvantage: You could get shot and killed.
Advantage: You could get shot and killed for your country.
Our country desperately needs heroes. Good for you if you feel so inclined. Other benefits include early retirement, a secure job (unless the democrats get control of the White House again. :), great healthcare benefits, and cheap travel. Some of the cons include being away from your family, obligatory transfers every few years, and quite a few restrictions on your personal life. Good luck,
