    Report: China's army bans snoring

    No tattoos, either, as military raises recruiting standards

    Monday, April 24, 2006; Posted: 1:32 a.m. EDT (05:32 GMT)

    SHANGHAI, China (AP) -- No drug users, no tattoos, no heavy snorers.
    China's military is tightening its standards for recruiting potential officers as it adjusts to changing social trends, ordering drug and psychological tests, among other new requirements, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Monday, citing a military health official.
    The People's Liberation Army headquarters released the new recruitment rules Sunday, it said.
    Recruits with fashionable tattoos will be barred from military schools, although traditional tattoos of ethnic minorities will be allowed if they are not too obvious when the recruit is wearing summer shorts, Li Chunming, the army health official, was cited as saying.
    "Tattoos will tarnish the military's image, even the scars of removed tattoos," Li said.
    Heavy snorers will also be banned, he said. The report did not say how the army would test for that problem.
    The report cited an unnamed official as saying that the army began requiring urine tests for drugs because of a surge in the number of young Chinese drug users.
    The psychological assessment will involve a written test followed by an interview for those who perform well enough, the report cited Miao Danmin, a professor with the Psychology Research Institute of the Fourth PLA Medical College, as saying.
    "The army has specific requirements for its officials with regard to personality and mental health. The test will help teenagers make the right decision," Miao said.

    So... Why do you care about the Chinese Army anyway? If you like them so much, why don't you marry them? You aren't supposed to have tatoos in the US Armed Forces and it's been that way for a while... like 50 years.

    i think the no snoring part is awesome.

    they should just hook up oxygen masks next to all the beds.

    They should just do that to everyone, or so my highschool math teacher/football coach would say.
    He figured your grade in his class should be directly proportional to the oxygen you get to use.
    That guy was awesome.

    Far Cry on Xbox 360 Live is so much better than the chinese military.

    duh, like everyone knew that
  15. Wrong. Military policy does allow tattoos. Depending on Service they can only be in certain locations.
