Ok, Ed, we'll use the more objective way of mentioning Intelligence, I score in the top 1%. As far as my ability to learn, I am up somewhere with Einstein and company. Now, I don't have any plans to make defining calculations and theories regarding the workings of our physical universe or anything, but I am more than capable of learning the material to be in that position. Laugh all you want, I don't really care.

Quote:

Perhaps happiness is being less centered around one's self.




That is definitely part of the truth. Another part of the truth seems to be the whole thing about having a fullfilling job. In fact, the 20/20 special last night covered that, showing that people who have fullfilling jobs are far happier than people with "stuff" and money. To go back to Einstein, he was not a happy man in his life, but he seemed less unhappy toward the end of his life, when all his studies and theories began to mean something. It was fullfilling to him to see that he had doen something worthwhile.

wasn't laughing at you, bushi - I agree people rarely live to their potential. saying you are as mentally capable as Einstein is one thing. living to that potential is another. I thought you were about to suggest you are currently the equivalent, to which I would have avoided commenting on until someone changed the subject.

Einstein being a German born Jewish pacifist in an ethically war-torn world, seeing his principals made into weapons of mass destruction and proliferating might have had something to do with his unhappiness as well.

There was alot going on in Einstein's life to be unhappy about. At least he got to see that some of his theories made a positive difference in his life before he died.

I make no claim to being anywhere near the theorist Einstein was. Besides, studying physics beyond the basic levels doesn't interest me. Physical activity and development do. So does strategy and deployment. I might not remain an enlisted man, but after a while fullfill the qualifications to become a commisioned officer. I think I would do very well in a military career. If I'm going to make claims that border on irrational, then I might as well claim that I could end up in the same league as Washington, Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, or Eisenhower. Obviously, not now, but maybe down the road.

I sincerely hope to live long enough to see that day.

Meanwhile, how is boot camp?

Jan. 24, and not a day sooner, BP. I'm looking forward to getting there, but I do want to enjoy the time I have left being free. BTW, there will be about 3.5 months of my absence while I'm in training. That would be because I have OSUT instead of BCT and AIT.
