If you're a bear guard aren't you supposed to defend the bears?

Maybe its guard bear - in which case I don't think you should have a shotgun.
I guard people from bears. Also, sitting here trying to take a drug test but didn't drink water before hand and I'm dehydrated... Haven't been able to provide for two tests lol and now I'm on my last cup of water. This blows.

Doubtful a shotgun will take down a fully grown polar bear, especially a female protecting youngs.

But quite interesting when they take over towns.

We only use soft lead slugs. When a bear comes into an operation we shut down operations until the bear leaves. You let the bear be the bear. Haze the people, not the bear.

Minimum wage is $7.50 in my state(Federal minimum as well) so it's not that bad at all.  Plus I'm not doing anything else so I'll probably pile on the hours if it's not an awful place to work.

It definitely won't allow me to live on my own but at least I'll be doing something, and have an income again, and people will be off my ass about the job situation.

I took the ASVAB last week, and tomorrow I'm taking the AIMS test. AIMS is a personality test to see if you're mentally sane and a team player, I think, so I should be able to pass that.

A week or two after this I take the physical examination at MEPS. I'm underweight but still within 5% of the required amount so I can get in. What I'm really worried about are my eyes. Last time I got my eyes checked I was 20/40 and that was about a year ago. Since then I've gotten glasses which help but I forget if I'm still 20/40 or not. That's the limit that's acceptable. My future is at stake here damnit. Any tips on ways to improve eyesight? I notice that when I drink coca-cola I have a lot of trouble focusing my eyes for the next two or three hours so I'm guessing it's the sugar. I'll avoid all sugars for the next couple of days leading up to MEPS.

Yeah whenever I figure out the MEPS date I'll relax on the reading (I overstress my eyes way too much with studying in poor lighting), exercise even more, only drink water and milk, and eat tons of carrots. If coke can totally FK my eyesight for a few hours, surely there's a little something that can improve it if a body reacts to things like that.

Turns out I was actually kinda sorta a little bit correct


Carrots contain some vitamin A. A lack of vitamin A can be bad for your eyesight, but eating more of it has not been shown to improve eyesight.

This was a story put about by the War Office during the Second World War. They were trying to keep secret the new invention of Radar by saying that the members of the Royal Observer Corps were eating carrots to improve their night time vision, thus explaining our improbably high intercept rate of the enemies aircraft.

To be technically correct, carrots do NOT improve or help eyesight. Carrots contain beta carotene which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A helps many things including maintaining eyesight. However no matter how many carrots you eat, your eyesight will not improve. On the other hand vitamin A deficiency can lead to night blindness so it is important to maintain a health diet of vitamin A.
In short if your vision is 20/20 eating carrots will not give you 20/10 vision no matter how many carrots you eat.

Although carrots can be beneficial, be careful not to go overboard. Eating too many could make you sick.
