It was the ASVAB test. It was administered to millions of teenagers in the United States by those that are seeking to fill the ranks of the military with the best and brightest? What concerns might you have with that?

Pure, un-informed rhetoric. Have you any examples of anyone "facing a lawsuit" at LF for citing empirical data from a scientific paper? Have you any examples of any member having their account closed at LF for citing empirical evidence from a scientific report? Come on Garf... you're better than that.
