Are you serious?
I met a Colonel once in the winter in NH. Talking to him about the earth tilting on its axis twice a year. Guy called me a liar. I asked why he thought we had seasons, you know, cold & warm weather at different times of the year.
The guy was a friend of a friend. Months later when I saw my bud again, he told me the Colonel thinks I need a straight jacket.
I asked my bud if he was really that stupid...
This is the mentality of the military from bottom to top.
Were you in the military Gerkin, by any chance?
This may give you some insight to who you are...................
