    Lawyer you say.... Lawyers do quite a bit of writing. Might as well get an early start and use us as practice. Wink I'd like to hear more from you as well. The application seemed a bit rushed, and the answers very minimal.

    Can you tell me what Airsoft is? It sounds interesting, I'm guessing it's to do with shooting?

    tsk tsk, don't assume everyone plays WoW. I have never, nor will I ever play that pathetic excuse for an mmorpg. Razz

    Also, Like your application, the story did sound rushed as well. We're not asking for a 10 page report on why you chose your major or why you mooned the highschool principal while driving past his house on grad night. Just asking that you put a little more time into your answers.

    For Astoria and anyone else interested in what airsoft is. It is a game similar to paintball in that both involve shooting people but there the similarites pretty much end. I have played both and in my experince paintball tends to be more just for run and gun type games whereas airsoft is a better for more tactical games. One of the differnces between airsoft and paintball is that in airsoft the guns look much more realistic and you can even get all metal bodies for them. For instance i have and AK-47 model whereas most of my friends use MP5s. On a side if u do decide to play and make sure you keep the orange tip on when your driving incase you get pulled over by the cops because they tend look like real guns even from a close distance especally with the metal body and it can get you in alot of trouble I almost went to jail before i convicned it him it wasnt real mainly because he wouldnt give me time to explain though i had to wonder where he thought i would get an AK-47 from. Anyway i was rambing there my apolgies. Airsoft usally uses more tactics then paintball airsoft involves alot of sneaking and ambushing people and not so much of hiding behind barrels and shooting each other tho that is really fun xD. One more difference that i like is airsoft guns dont hurt near as much as paintball guns but i can be a bit harder to tell if u hit someone because of the absense of paint since airsoft uses small plastic bbs instead of large paint fillled balls that hurt really bad. If anyone is interested in trying it feel free to email me and i can give you some advice on what type of gun to start with and stuff like that or if you live near me we can play together some time.

    Due to the lack of votes here, I'm going to let this app play out a little while longer Eric. Seems folks are still undecided. Feel free to act in any way you feel that might help your chances in the meantime. Smile

    I approve, simply because he chose an AK-47. I love shooting my friends real AK. Still gotta convince my wife we need one somehow...

    But on a serious note. I am leaning towards approve but I can see why people are on the fence. How about this for the final super-duper question and we will all make our decisions based on your answer. PS there is no right answer to this one, just your answer.

    If you had to be a chess piece, what one would you choose and why?

    Good question shade i love chess even though i am not very good at it. ok heres my fairly long answer. First up the King while the thought of being all powerful is appealing i dont think i would want to be the king because you dont really move much as the king usally if you have to move the king at least when im playing its because im in trouble and hes in check lol. Now for the Knight honestly i dont use my knight very much simply because they are hard for me use properly but they are very useful but i still dont think i would be a knight piece even though the concept of chivarly is a good one now if there were a samurai piece it would be no contest since i love samurai. Ahh the lowly pawn i actually thought about being this piece because while pawns are seen as expendible they are very important and in my experince if i lose alot of my pawns early on in the game i do not tend to do well at all but i still wouldnt be a pawn because they can only move in one direction and thats boring but then again if your a pawn and you get to the other side of the board you can use it as queen so it certianly has advantages and plus no army can funtion with a private which is essintaly what the pawn is so not being a pawn was a hard choice. Now for the bishop this is a hard one to dismiss because i love my bishops because alot of people dont thing diagionally when playing chess so they sometimes have a tendecy to leave important pieces open from that direction that they might have well guarded from other angles, but still my heart lies with another piece.Now for the queen i would not be the queen because i do not like using my queen because i get scared if i move her she will die and i will be sad and queenless xD. What usally happens though is i see an opening to take my friend's rook and i do that and lose the queen in the process and it annoys me lol. Now for my favorite piece the rook. I LOVE the rook i would most defintaly be the rook if i was a chess piece for a few reasons. 1. i like being able to castle to help protect the king. 2. rooks are just usefull and since i have 2 of them im not as paranoid about losing them like i am the queen so i use them alot more and so i like them more. 3. castles are just cool i mean come on who doesnt like a castle. i mean come on you can hide archers and pull boling oil out windows on invaders lol ok so maybe that isnt excatly standard chess rules and ive spent way too much time thinking of ways to defend the keeps of Warhammer online lol.

    I'm not sure if voting was closed, I didn't see a post saying as much, but for some reason I can't vote. So I will put my vote here. I would recommend approval. The application was thin, but I see that you are putting more effort into the whole process by keeping track of this thread and answering questions people have asked. This was a good effort.

    i was rereading the responeses and i think i know what you all mean now by rushed answers and first off let me say i dont mean to be i just have never filled out and application to join a guild before this was the first one that looked like it would be worth it so good job on that. Now someone asked why i chose my major and i gave a short response so in my attempt to sway you all to let me in the guild allow me to go into my detail as to why i want to be a lawyer. My dad was a sherifs officer for about 20 years and right now he is a private investagor working for a group of lawyers in Knoxville so i guess something to do with law kinda of runs in the family. As for one of the reasons i want to be a lawyer i like to help people and i know the common sterotype is that all lawyers only want money but i dont want to be that kind of lawyer which is why im debating being a public defender so i can help people who cant afford a lawyer on there own because i know that sometimes the police do make mistakes and if you cant afford a good lawyer you are in trouble so that is one of the reasons i want to be a lawyer and plus my dad says he thinks i would be good at it. That said even if i go into private pratice i still intend to take a few cases each year for cheap just to help people out if i see that they cannot afford to pay full price.

    P.S. if i dont answer anyones questions for the next few hours please dont think im ingoring anyone i just gotta be in work at 3 but i get off at 7 tonight so ill be back then.

    To Ulfaro about how to handle a ninja. im assuming your going off my comment about how i love samurai if not im sorry lol. A few years ago me and my friend had a huge argurment about who would win in a battle ninja or samurai. personally i think in a straight up battle it would be the samurai hands down because they were the actual warriors of japanese society whereas ninja were asssassains or as my dad put "cowardly honlorless assassians". I am not sure if thats true or not but i have read that ninja were more of assasians then warriors so how i would i handle a ninja simple try and not go to sleep lol then i could take him one on one as a samurai but if i was normal me i would probly get beaten either unless of course i had a real AK-47 then bring it on Xd
