I saw something about it on the odd couple show, I believe Felix was considered dead and they heard some honking going on.
It’s possible that homogenous behaviors (e.g., expressing grief) occuring in "mass" may have to do with group dynamics. Perhaps research on herd mentality may be helpful in answering your question.
(I know there are better sites out there… if you’re interested in exploring further, I know you will be able to find some.)
I’ve read different things about this MOS. Do I have to see combat in this? Do I get a choice of whether or not I want to go tactical?
If you’re active-duty, chances are very good that you’ll deploy, and soon after you finish training. As for Infantry-type combat, you could see a firefight for sure, but that’s not really your job. You’ll probably be working closely with SF and other SpecOps units, delivering "product" and doing loudspeaker broadcasts. It’s hard to say, because every BN has a different job, depending on where they are deployed to. Fact is, when you are in Afghanistan, it doesn’t matter what your MOS is, you can get caught up in a battle easily. IED’s are a big problem, too. If you’re worried about combat, I wouldn’t join the Army, and no offense meant by that either.
I was a 37F, and everyone of us deployed – most to Afghanistan, but a good many to Iraq. As for the reserve units under USACAPOC, they deploy less, but there is still a good chance of being deployed. This MOS, along with Civil Affairs, is a much-needed MOS at this point. You should also investigate Civil Affairs MOS.
As for tactical PSYOP, it’s actually pretty tough to get into. Tactical PSYOP is performed by 9th Battalion, 4th POG. You need good scores on your coursework, and you need to max the APFT. Not too many people are sent to 9th BN, and you don’t get to choose where you are sent. Your instructors will know you all very well, and they kind of let the command know who should go where. From my class, only two guys went to 9th BN.
All in all, it’s a pretty damned good MOS, but I think if I did it over, I would have a tough time between chossing this and Infantry.
what would be a good example of a basic day, or things i would learn.
They do all sorts of weird stuff. They print fliers, they have vehicles with audio tapes hooked up to speaker systems, some have sounds like an infant crying (this CAN mess with your head), tanks moving in force, wolf howls, propaganda messages. Their job is to demoralize the enemy as much as possible. I have seen them at work in training and deployed.

Religion is just a bunch brainwashing cults finding ways for you to die for them, fight for them, give them money
Thinking about re-patterning your society?Social Engineering maybe the answer. Somebody should add this up in the curriculum of schools.
There are no university majors by the name of social engineering. Essentially, I see the dry humor in your statement.
What does that term ‘Police State’ mean to you? What images does it conjure? Now think, are any of those things happening now? Is there anything in that image that you’d strongly object to if it DID happen? Would you object on principle, or only if it affected you personally? Are there any rights/freedoms you’d give up to feel safer?
Believe it or not its true, we have more cctv cameras watching us than any other country in the world, yes, the world!! doesnt make anyone feel safe, does allow the authorities to watch us though, we are in a culture now(thanx labour) where you get fined for anything at all, from smoking to putting microchips on your wheelie bin and if youve not moved it you get fined(true) they want to force id cards next and they even have bank details with how much you have on(true) there are many many more "big brother" operations already in place under labour im afraid, Lenin did exactly the same thing by the way? we are already in a police state, wake up!
