Questions that make you think...

if you were a good soldier who had to choose?

In this forum, questions are asked which are really tough to answer. Some philosophical, some regarding morality and many others. Have fun, and post your own personal tough questions!

this thought occured to me today,and its a bout ,hmm
many things..first of all what is the purpose of a military,how do they serve that best

and heres the big one for any soldiers out there, male or female

if the this earth,fell into three countries (I know would make for boring olympic games at times )BUT..lets say it did happen,

and you had the choice to serve and go to one of the 3, without any judgement, free to pick your own "country", as well as free to decide ,where the border lines are to the countries...

where would you want to serve?


just a question to make you think about a few things

feel free to go off topic ;)

No! do not feel free to go off topic--keep this debate to one question to make you think.

This forum is for good in depth questions, not for turning it into personal problems and unrelated matters. the last one about "leaving" did not belong in this forum.

If this warning is ignored I'll start locking topics!

after considering the first question..quite seriously

I will help you out with some ideas as to the rules of the next choice

pick 3 colors representing the 3 countries ,you can even give them names if you like (the countries)

now you can divide the whole earth equally amongst 3, as far as geographically ..that also extends into the depths..of whatever you choose.
(mineral rights everything, right down to the centre)these 3 colors... or countries..can be little circles here and there of one color..a broader peace of surface someone are
as long as they are equal enough to be made fair

it might complicate the question,but it does give more "freedom"
be tough to graph it out,and I can see why none of you are going to attempt it,

cause its a project,not a friggin question, and grreeny ,probablly gonna pop back ina time and tell me to quit wasting peoples time

but I'm listening to wing_zero's advice

I think it would be a great project to give students...especially taking in mine the first part of the question..
I know I'd love to read what they come up with..
(sometimes I think actual teachers do this...give an incredibally big project to grade 9'ers...pick out the "gold" they see..and stick into their "thesis"...sad...but true (sighs))
