Discounting? 8O

Who in their right mind would prefer the peace corps to being a Krav Maga-proficient assassin monk on a mission from God to kick some righteous ass?

Peace Corps doesn't sound like much fun. I'm not anti-war either.

Just a note about the peace corps - with the current state of unemployment in America, the Peace corps is not even taking college graduates anymore. There are so many people from the baby-boomer generation currently applying for jobs (many of them with masters degrees or above) and much more life experience that they are choosing them preferentially over recent college grads. And non-grads are rarely even being considered for positions.
