And the answer is……..42!


It'll come as no surprise to Ford Prefect that the Pentagon has bumped the upward limit of its draft-dreams to age 42, up from 35.

Face it fellow desk-jockeys, there are just way too many sysadmins and otherwise technically proficient lard-asses in that demographic for DoD to pass on once a national emergency skills draft is in effect. Look for the formation of an elite CAT-5 corps any day now.
