Is there some connection with the offspring of US Marines and a career or interest in science?

I won't ask more. I don't want to end up in a position where you have to eliminate me because I know too much or ask too many questions.

I was a bit younger than you during that era, but growing up I have known many vetrans from that time with experiences that span from chairborne rangers (their description) state side to multiple tours of duty in the field. I think they would all agree it was a difficult time in the history of this country and especially so for those in the military. I am appreciative of those that served then while at the same time thankful, I have not had to endure what many of them did.

<quoted text>So, we agree on the fact that systems and cycles and patterns is the way nature works in general, correct?
No Free, actually pretty far from it. Do systems and cycles exist?
Yes, that´s not a baffling reality. Water evaporates, and rain falls over a forest. Precipitation system. It eventually ends up back in the ocean. A cycle. Man makes use of this to generate electricity. A result.

The combustion engine in my car generates force - a system. This system gets me back and forth to work each day. A cycle. This ensures I have beer in my fridge. A result. Is this what you are trying to point out? Because there is no "theory" here, there are basic facts. Did God put that engine in my car? No, in fact General Motors did that. Is my engine going to save the world with its - err... I forgot your acronym - systems and cycles? Unlikely. So unless you can elaborate on this groundbreaking theory of yours, I suggest you put it to rest. You´re convincing no one on this thread.

You prove your low IQ with every post.

How old are you? It has been a long time since the Marine Corp was so desperate for officers that they would promote anyone on such a thin basis as an I.Q. test. That would be WWII days or earlier.

As I said, it is much more likely that you are a lying troll. Or that you took a severe blow to your head some time in your lifetime and have lost about 50% of your thinking capacity since.
It's Marine Corp policy any Genius tested in boot camp at graduation of boot camp you are sent to officer training and are promoted to warrant officer. Them's the facts Jack.

Wait - you´re on to something;

Idiots have sex, they raise another idiot.

I´m starting to see a pattern here.

The number of children a couple have is inversely proportional to their IQ.

<quoted text>OCS is not an instant promotion to an officer rank, you idiot. While in OCS, you are a cadet. You are commissioned as a Second Lieutenant upon graduation - if you make it that far.

If your really did this, you wouldn't f**k up the facts so badly.
You don't know shlt.
Go back to your fake guitar, somehow you think that suppose to look cool?

I was promoted to a warrant Officer. Look it up idiot. What a shlt bag

<quoted text>That was not KJV's claim. If he had mentioned that OCS there is a small chance that we would have believed him.

KJV, like most creatards, has been shown to be a liar. Would you believe a proven liar when they claimed anything?
Sub par is a known liar.

You go ahead and look it up and you'll find out that enlisted men when test and proven to be of a genuine IQ do go straight to officer training as a Warrant Officer. Enlisted men cannot be a regular officer. Warrant officers have their own line of command.

KJV did go straight from enlisted mans boot camp to officer training as a warrant Officer. Bummer you have no clue as to how the military works and you mock those that step into harms way. I've also been in fire fights and have killed men. Want to mock that too?

<quoted text>I didn't know about the military part, but I long ago concluded that your IQ was likely to be high without your mentioning it. I suspect this is true of a number of our mutual acquaintances on this forum. They don't have to mention their intelligence, you can read it for yourself in their posts.

While I did not serve in the military, I am the son of a man with a high IQ that did. Let Kevin Bacon beat that.
High IQ is not good enough you have to be a Genius. Sorry Charley only the smartest soldiers get to be promoted.
