Ignorance? I got that directly from the context of this thread!
One poster admitted that they were unwilling to "lose the pipe" in order to join...
Can you come up with a finer example of psychological addiction?
To me, that qualifies as "metal weakness".
I think "fatbody" is self explanatory... Try checking out your local Wal Mart for a shining example or fifty.
I'm not wasting any more time explaining my crystal clear view of the situation. Your perspective may differ, is all.

Thank you for taking the time to explain your thoughts and feelings on your job and your duty. I will see if I can get our close, personal friend who is a parent to 2 older teens - 1 with severe Azburgers (sp) Syndrome and the other with extreme ADHD complex to come to the forum to relay her thoughts on the onslaught of recruiter activity to her household.

To chilldog: I'm not disputing your claim at all, but I know for a fact that's not true at all. And I'll tell you what. If you want I can e-mail you the instruction that says that there is no bias between gender when it comes to scores, and from there I would implore you and your daughter to take it to that recruiting station and ask them to explain themselves. Give them a lil' of the Deny Ignorance spirit.

Trust me- there's a lot more than a few!
As for the 'intelligence' of recruits- When I signed up, I took the pre ASVAB- came out in record time with a score so high, the recruiters sent me right back in, and stood there and watched while I repeated the feat! I had 'scored so high, and finished so fast', they said, they swore I was cheating.
A test I took much later while in I scored- once again- REAL high. Oddly enough, the results of that test disappeared into a black hole, never to be seen again. I asked around, I tried to find out what happened to my results- and no one knew. This kept me from a job so amazing, technical, and everything else- that it has kept me eternally suspicious of what happened with the results.....
