Going for Army Officer Internship but Looking to Ultimately Join the Royal Marines - Placement Thoughts?

2022.01.22 08:03 JamesBlond1999 Going for Army Officer Internship but Looking to Ultimately Join the Royal Marines - Placement Thoughts?

Good morning all,
I've posted a few times here and gotten some excellent input, so cheers again for all that.
I had my AIB attempt in October and failed to pass by 2 marks (easy ones to have picked up as well, I merely needed to change where I emphasised my aspects of leadership and teamwork - could have done it - but water under the bridge now). I have been told by the Capt. in charge of coaching me for AIB that there could still be a shot at September 2022 entry if there are places on the new OSCs that have come into operation. A shot of good news, for sure, but I'm not going to put all my eggs in that proverbial basket.
As it stands right now I'm coming out the back end of the Army's medical labyrinth. RGMD paperwork came back with only a mention of childhood asthma being unexpected (age 4, been entirely clear since and no inhalers etc.). Considering I totally passed the Royal Navy's medical I'm optimistic for the same result for the Army. I've applied for their Army Officer Internship scheme, which is a year-long commission after going to Sandhurst. After which you have the option of going regular, reserve or leaving entirely.
My first choice, where my heart was and still is set upon, is the Royal Marines. Not to say I wouldn't have a blast in the Army as an officer, I'm sure I would. My reasons for going for the Corps first are many, and I won't get into them here. My plan as it stands is to (fingers crossed) secure entry into RMAS this October, learn soldiering and leadership skills there, have a cracking time at my year-long posting and then take what I have gained and learned and return to the Royal Marines and try get in as an officer there. If for whatever reason that was not possible or did not work out, I'd love to work with a regiment that works closely with the Royal Marines so I could do the Combined Arms Commando Course and earn the Green Beret.
It is at this point we arrive at my question: on the premise that I do manage to get into Sandhurst for this October, what cap badges/regiments would the Royal Marines look most favourably upon if I was to come back to them after doing this internship and put my foot forward? My initial speculation would be units that are most strenuous/difficult, like the Paras or the Gurkhas.
As a bit of background context: I am a current Masters student (one year, finishing up by the end of August this year), I will be 23 as of June this year and I'm currently in the holding troop at my local RMR - but we have gotten news that the RROP will be in March.

2022.01.22 08:03 Blacky-Noir Why a lot of games are scored at 7/10, and other score considerations

That's very basic stuff, but after reading a lot of problematic reasoning and talking with a decent amount of people who missed it, maybe it's useful. For some. Maybe.
So, why a lot of games are scored at 7/10 or in the 70s/100?

Hence, 7/10 games are quite common. Because the scoring range is so compacted.
Final consideration: % scores aren't grades. Like Rotten Tomatoes for movies, or Steam reviews, if a product is a 5.6/10 for everyone that product will get a 100% positive reviews. If it's a 5.4/10 for everyone, that product will get a 0% positive reviews. That % is not a grade, it's a percentage of positive and negative reviews, there's no finesse of grading.
Which doesn't mean it's bad. I find Steam reviews % personally useful (as one bit of information) before purchasing. Just remember, it's not the same thing. A highly unique and original game for example will be divisive, and could be a 0/10 or a 10/10 for you just depending on how your tastes and mood click with that game.
PS: I'm not defending anyone, or advocating for anything. I personally would do things differently, especially in the presentation. Just explaining very basic math stuff.

I can confirm that Descending IS indeed the best song on Fear Inoculum.
I also watched the 4 hour Woodstock documentary with my cat, which was awesome.

These guys made me bust out laughing today fr fr.
It's been at least 3 straight entertaining episodes... hopefully they keep gelling together.
The ancillary characters and Mal getting comfortable are what is making this pod take a step forward.
Rory is a pro at this shit and shoots indiscriminately. Mal opening up, Demaris being a much funnier, bolder, and more intelligent and interesting off mic than Parks. Karl and Jesus in the cut.
These guys low-key have a good chemistry going.
And at the end of the day, Chemistry is what made the old pod great.

2022.01.22 08:03 rnlennon Training Failure?

Not really puppy blues, more like self-doubts, but I guess that counts? I love my little guy, but I feel like I’m failing him. He’s incredibly smart and knows a ton of commands, but he still barks for my attention, barks at the cats, barks when left alone, even if I try to reinforce his quiet. He still cries for 5-15 minutes when I place him in the crate, maybe 3-4 times a week he doesn’t at all. Also still has accidents inside-mostly when I think he’s grasped potty training and tried to move potty breaks to every hour instead, but to no success. When I take him out he goes potty right away about 98% of the time but yeah, he still has a few accidents in a week. I follow all the tips on here but generally I just feel like I’m not doing a very good job. For context, he’s a 4 month old toy poodle, I’ve had him for about a month. Maybe I just need some kind of reassurance that eventually all this will work out. It’s just disheartening to read that I’ve read some people get their dogs house trained already by 4 months.

2022.01.22 08:03 cgcmake Faire valoir un argument sans risquer d'ennuyer celle qui l'a permis

Bonjour, Une psychiatre m'a bascullé en injection retard de neuroleptique suite à un entretient agacé avec un proche qui disait des choses inexactes et en ma défaveur sur moi. J'ai refusé l'injection et l'infirmière ne l'a pas fait, mais rien n'est indiqué dans mon dossier. Depuis ma review est très positive (et je n'ai notament aucun des meaux que l'on me "reproche" (désorganisation de la pensée, idée délirante) Comment le faire valoir sans qu'elle n'aie d'ennui (le juge de la cour d'appel pour une mainlevée d'un PDS va certainement demander comment je ne l'avais pas dans le sang).

2022.01.22 08:03 OatmilkStrawberry Can’t purchase Robux?

I recently just created an alt account for Roblox, and I’ve been trying to purchase Robux, but it won’t let me. Once I select the payment type, it’ll go to Step 2 then back to Step 1 with a message at the bottom saying, “an error has occurred.” With my main account, I’m able to purchase Robux easily with no issues. I’ve tried logging in and out of the alt account and also trying to purchase on a different device, but the same error shows up. Any advice on what I should do?
