memedumpster - 2014-04-27 I really enjoyed how sincere NASA was in the very informative letter they sent him. Even in rejection they seem friendly and inviting.
Quad9Damage - 2014-04-27 Waitwaitwaitwait. You can get in the door at NASA with a BACHELOR'S DEGREE? When most businesses these days ask for at least a Master's to do entry level office grunt work? Just how underfunded is NASA at this point?
oddeye - 2014-04-27 You eggheads, NASA needs peeps with street smarts too.
oddeye - 2014-04-27 I wanted to join MI5 when I was younger but you needed a degree minimum. Although I've spent like 10 years enrolled in various colleges and vocational tech schools I've never graduated a single one due to personal problems. They also have some strict psychological criteria that I'm almost sure I wouldn't pass. This year was the absolute last year I could have started a career as a fighter pilot in the royal navy, which was another one of my goals based on my great reaction speed and spatial awareness.
Basically, although I am gifted in many areas, ultimately I'm too undereducated and too much of a hardcore mentalist to be James Bond.
At least I never considered becoming a space marine as a valid career choice.
memedumpster - 2014-04-27 I sincerely hope you did, at least, consider space pirate.
oddeye - 2014-04-27 I wasn't so hot on the rape and kidnapping so I wanted to go down the Space Renegade career tree. Also the bonus to pistols seemed more attractive to me than the situational melee powers.
