    I started to get build shoulders and caught the lifting bug.
    didn't they give you antibiotics for it? or do something to help bring down the swelling?

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    They did for the ones they could get at. But it still pops and grinds.

    Talk to a recruiter and be up front about your heart condition. If it's not a bar to enlistment, he'll know. If it is, the other services may have different standards. Also, the standards change all the time, as new treatments mitigate a lot of conditions that used to be bars to enlistment.

    Making license plates doesn't count as service, Wei.

    Or, if not, you can be like Wei and try to screw it up by corrupting young minds and spewing idiocy on the web.
