They have nothing of the good ole charming glory of the 20th century, despite having misfits among their ranks.
    Yeah, and I reckon they kind of fell out of favor after that attempted coup in the 60s. Apparently De Gaulle took that personally.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Throughout my life, I've considered joining the military. The French Foreign Legion consideration was at the extreme of that romantic fantasy.

    If I were a J, I would have done it already. It's the extreme P in me that could never commit to actually doing it, knowing that my freedom would be stripped away.
