You didn't read the thread did you? He doesn't want to go either. He wants to re-enlist, but he doesn't want to spend 4 years in Japan. He's had friends get stationed there and kill themselves. Plus, he's been told what I've been told by Marines he's known for years and that have been stationed there so everything I stated isn't false.

People don't like change, I call those people ignorant. There's more to life than what you know, and yes, the bases are full of liars and cheaters, I simply just didn't talk to them. That's all I gotta say. Don't be so pessimistic, he will do things for you in return when you need it most.

I've left my bubble to live out here, I've traveled to different states, and I've gives certain things chances. I don't understand how if I tried it and hated it that makes me ignorant. My husband also likes our bubble, and he's been to Afghanistan and all over the world and he hates it.

I wouldn't pass up the chance to live in another country for a while. There's nothing particularly bad about Japan either.

Disregard that, I suck cocks. The whole thing sounds pretty rubbish actually. You'll find racism everywhere so I wouldn't be bothered by that but paying out the ass for something you'll both hate is hardly worth it. Why is he even considering it if it'll be that shitty?

Sorry, shitty ipod makes ng slow and inconvinient to read so if this was already answered I'm sorry.
Could he NOT reenlist in the Marines if neither of you want to move? Or is it too late?
If it's gonna be so shit I don't think either of you should move.

Giajins may as well mean stupid in Japanese, they sure as hell treat you like you are.
-No talking on the bus
-Deep bow for important figures, for friends or locals a head nod is good enough
-no tips. You dont tip in Japan
-slurp noodles. SLURP THEM
-if you live in an apartment or have close neighbors, whisper, the walls are paper thin, they can hear everything.
-The shops are claustrophobic as shit. In fact if you're in a wheelchair, you can enter most of them.
-If you're tall, you're fucked.

It doesn't worth to go, 12 cons against 3 pros isn't really a good thing, better to remain in the U.S.

I was just pointing out that the chinese government has succeeded in making most of the population of China dead inside.

And what is this rubbish about how I hate everyone?

Because he didn't have a choice. He kind of got fucked over and they said all of the 3 stations of choice he chose are "full" so they gave him Japan.

He really does want to re-enlist but not go to Japan. If he got out , we'd kind of be fucked because it'd be in December. We got a little too comfortable and expected him to get re-enlisted to San Diego so we don't have anything saved up.

In and around both bases in Japan they do. They've been protesting and trying to get the base taken down for years now. Apparently since there's nothing to do in Japan or go out and do, almost every Marine becomes an alcoholic. Rowdy drunken Marines can piss off an population, especially when they rape an 8 year old or whatever she was.

I appreciate the advice but to me, that'd be the most fucked up thing in the world to go to Japan with my husband, find out I hate it (I honestly 100% know I will) and be like, "Sorry dude, this place sucks, I'm going back home." And just leave him over there by himself for 4 whole years.

Honestly, if it was 1 or maybe a 2 year stint, I might consider it. But 4 years is a long long long time.

He's going to try his hardest to figure out another option but it seems like no matter what, all the options for staying in the military take the sediment of playing russian roulette with what station he'll get.

it's like a 360 fuck fest

Just move to Japan with him.
Sure it'll suck to some degree but Newgrounds will still be here and it's not permanent, you'll be back eventually.

If it's your first time re-enlisting in the Marines, no matter what rank you are, you get station of preference. The problem is the Marines Corps are downsizing so Marines are getting kicked out or just out altogether. The only bonus/incentive Marines get now are to chose duty stations, they don't get a bonus check. With his rank, he does get choice so the reason I'm 'whining' is because it's somewhat unfair. I know the military is never fair.

It's just supposedly all his stations are "full" and Okinawa is always in need of bodies. He just got bad luck.

Also, just because he doesn't like traveling and likes to live in a bubble like me doesn't mean he's stupid choices. You're pretty ignorant if just because someone doesn't like traveling or getting stationed in a shitty place means they're making stupid choices.

Seriously, someone can love their job but they don't have to love every bit of it. My husbands done tons of shit he didn't want to have to do or didn't want to go do but he still loves his job. I understand you have your cunt wet for Japan but holy fuck, for someone boasting about traveling and experiencing new things/place, you're extremely close minded to others with conflicting opinions.

Don't even deny it, many of the things you have posted served to spread your cynical view of the world itself. In the end, you're upset because not everyone can be as miserable as you are.

It's the way life goes.

I probably should have noted that it's a base that's filled with nothing but military and their whore wives so it's basically americanized as fuck.

Also, the local Japanese have been trying to get the base taken out for years, are extremely racist towards whites, and hate military.

Also also, there's curfews and restrictions.

Sounds to me like you already made up your mind at this point, and you're going through a lot of stress and anxiety about either having to move to Japan or be away from your husband, and are trolling for attention, sympathy and assurance that you're not being a totally selfish whore, which either way I don't think you actually are.

I think you should go. Actually educate yourself about another culture instead of bitching about stereotypes and how 'hard' your life on base is going to be. You speak of 'whore wives' while you're the one nerd-girl'ing yourself silly on the internet.

It's stressful because all the options we have, we basically won't get what we were hoping. I never was looking for attenion or sympathy. I don't understand why I would, it's Newgrounds, not Facebook.

Fucking lmao.

I wanted to get opinions on everyone's view of moving to Japan but I wanted to emphasize on the area I'll be living at and that it's not just hurr durr Japan. I'm not bitching about Stereotypes, everything I've been told is from people that actually live/lived on base. It's well known Military and Americans over there are hated.

Plus, I've already lived on a base for a year that's basically in the middle of nowhere so it's pretty isolated with nothing but Military and their families. I've learned first hand from trying to make friends with the wives out here that they really are whores. Half the wives I met, have cheated or were cheating on their husbands. If not that, they were fawning of having babies or already had babies. It's hard to make friends when you're disgusted with cheaters and are also infertile. I don't see my life here now or if I moved to Japan would be "hard" it'd just suck. I don't understand how some people can take lightly moving so far from friends/family and not having real options to go home to visit. I know I'm an adult and should "grow up" but holy fuck, that makes no sense in a situation like this.
