Fake a diploma, take some GoldenSeal, and join the Army.

The US Army has taken some serious hits in the last couple of years, both from their soiree in Iraq and from their recruitment and stop-loss policies.  But hey, it’s the Army so I expect it can take a serious beating.

However, getting totally pwned by a high school kid is not going to do their reputation any favors. .

Meet David McSwane.  He’s a 17 year old Honor Student that decided to see how far the Army would go to get new recruits.  So he posed as a drugged out drop-out and got a recruiter advising him to fake a diploma and taking him to buy detoxification tablets to pass the drug test.  And McSwane got it all ON TAPE.  Awe-some.

    I do not doubt this at all.  Once upon a time I wanted to join the Navy.  My recruiters probably would of jumped in a bowl of pure acid if it would of taken that to get me join. 

    At the time I refused to lie about anything.  I just thought life was a bit more interesting if you always told the truth, so when they told me to lie a few times when signing up I thought it was funny.

    Thats not why I’m not in the Navy, but being told to lie to the government by the governments representatives didn’t help.
