#3 my phone makes me feel like I should be fired.
Because I use it to Chive all day, everyday.
#30 please let this be possible in the future.
This would usher in a terrible era of Internet viruses
You know goddamn well it will never be possible.
#2 I want to punch whoever said that . Air Force ROTC and getting a degree with 3.6 GPA .
What we have here is called anecdotal fallacy. Just because you are an exception doesn't make it less true
That comment on Facebook was yours wasn't it
My good sir, you insult me. I wasn't taking any sides. I was merely pointing out your logical fallacy which does you no good, but in fact contributes to the stereotype
The guy also missed "to dumb" it should be "too dumb" Education and intelligence are different things. Some can't afford it some people rack a disaprin and the military gives that to them.
What you are saying might be true, except that one of, if not the most common answer given for joining the military is money for college. Many don't want to have to work 24/7while going to school full time, especially on the reserve/natl guard side. It's true many join active duty military because they feel they aren't ready, or don't want to go, but they might do college after getting out, and if not this is still a minority of military personnel overall http://enlist.military.com/68/top-10-reasons-to-j…
^^ This right here. Half of my soldiers have degrees and most of the others are working on it.
The fact that you fail to recognize that the original statement was no less an anecdotal fallacy which you then accept as a truism leads me to the inescapable conclusion that you might be a bag of douche impersonating an actual human being.
Or perhaps not impersonating at all. Either or.
What we have here is called "tu quoque". Never said I failed to recognize that the original statement was anecdotal fallacy and neither have I said I accept it as truism. I just don't care about a random person on fb who can't even see their fault. I found it more important to point it out to someone who has a bigger chance of understanding the fault in his statement.and probably do better in the future.
I still think we're getting away from the fact that the schmuck that posted this is in all likely hood a jerk. (I'm also not to happy we share the same first name)
*likelihood, how'd that get away from me?
not too happy* though according to #2 you only have to correct 50% of the mistakes to be intelligent…I completely disagree with the person though, nearly a quarter of the engineering department at my school are ex military and they tend to grasp and understand the concepts faster than the rest of us civilians.
The bottom line is it was an absolute statement so all you need to disprove it is anecdotal evidence. No anecdotal fallacy there.
And lol @ "Never said I failed to recognize that the original statement was anecdotal fallacy…"
26.3% Percent of veterans 25 and older with at least a bachelor's degree in 2011. In comparison, 28.5 percent of the total population had a bachelor's degree or higher.

5 Minutes on google and I'm not even american…..
And the fact that you called him an exception shows you're biased.
"Just because you are an exception doesn't make it less true". Your words exactly. You have proof of his being an exception I take it? What you have done is make an unsupported generalization. By the way I don't need a lecture in freshman philosophy. I passed it 28 years ago.
I wouldn't believe everything you see on the internet
Give me a good reason why not? If it's on the Internet, it's true!
Chair force lol!
For the most part, you cannot become an officer in the United States Military without a college degree.
Bottom line, those military men and women do what they do so idiotic statements like this can be proclaimed and then freely argued over…by more idiots.
#24 He is whipped.
He is more than whipped. He is buried in debt.
Still smarter than getting their names tattooed on each other.
Made me laugh
#25 I guess the new season of MTV's Teen Mom has started again.
#5 #6 #7 Made my coworkers look at me funny…
#19 should end in 'O' and not 'X'
Find her please Chive.
#19 I live near Chester…need her name!
I kind of want to try #13 just to see how she reacts.
If your dentist is a she, you shouldn't be licking her fingers.
Dental Appointment Monday. I'm gonna try it.
I've bit my dentist's finger before. He had the gas on probably a little to high and I thought it was cotton. He was like "ouch that's my finger" , and "that's alright, I hurt you and you hurt me. Now were even". Then we laugh are asses of for awhile.
*laughed our asses off – stay in school.
#1 #17 #21 #25 I weep for the future!
But they can tell you all about fisting. Schools are little more than liberal indoctrination centers.
You're an idiot.
Rush is that you?
'liberal indoctrination centers.'
Tin-foil hat alert.
seen half these already, cmon Chive my news feed alone has a couple fails on it!
gonna vacation soon in england…spent 10 minutes searching facebook for #19…i suck at stalking…
Oh, come on….it took all of about 10 seconds to find her on FB man. lol
#7 aahhhahahah epic
#27 Must be some new translation… http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matth…
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
It's not a quote, it's a reference to the bible as support for the idea.
#18 – I don't know what I'd think if I started seeing this trend lol.
Well, #10 got me, that's for sure.
It's truly an awful accent.
Especially on a woman.
I'm not from Boston I don't get it
oh noozzz it took me about 5 reads to get my brain to say "kah kees". And then I LoLed.
A total of 20 million people are in the higher education in the USA, while just over a million of soldiers. So, where is it harder to get in?
with grammar like that, i'm guessing you arent one of the 20m
I lost it at #9 and #12
