What are you referring to? The "sitting in the sun non-thinking" part or the "drool-catching goatee" part?

I'm already confused.

What if people like to have ambiguity in their posts and Nameless is an example of prestigious perception that not even you could grasp. Laughing

whats 2+2=? How would a 'genius' reply?


Ok, let me just give it a shot.... 4 A genius doesn't have to explain him/herself. Besides you have it wrong. The answer is not going to be determined by the intellect. Its all by personality, (which is probably inter-related anyways). If somebody is very bright and therefore understands what perception the question is geared towards, then the answer will comply with the perception, that is... if the mood is in this like, mature frenzy. So the perception in this case is of mathematical values. So the answer becomes 4. A genius will probably be able to come up with many more perceptions of the question to give answers that would not make sense to a normal person who cannot devise the perceptions. So if the genius was in a cheerful or I dunno, ... the answer would come out as some other perception they had already grasped. So 2+2 = sp3d2

I love how you manage to spell "egoistic" wrong here.

Actually, nameless's use of "egoic" is correct here, and it is spelled correctly.
-------
EGOIC:Adjective
egoic (comparative more egoic, superlative most egoic)
Of or related to the ego.

I'm looking forward to my IQ stabilizing at about 58 points, so I can just sit in the sun and enjoy the moment without being troubled by all this "thinking" stuff.

In anticipation, I am growing my goatee longer so I'll have something to catch the drool.

Get dumm enough and that is not all you'll catch. Are you voting republican? Consider it an intelligence test. If you never grow tired of being tied over a barrel it might be the choice for you...

@Fido,
Mine was 148, but that was at the last test about 20 years ago! The only advantage that I can see is the ability to solve logic problems a lot faster (like - why is my computer not working? how can I get a piano through that small door?)
My friends use me shamelessly as a quick way of getting answers to questions. (Why google it when you can carol it?)
It is like the ability to run very fast or have quick reflexes - useful when it's needed but certainly not a reason to feel vastly superior to everyone else. However, I will admit it has let me earn a reasonable amount of money over my life without having to work too hard. And TickTockMan - we know you secretly love all the "thinking stuff" :flowers:

I'm going to do a write-in for former California governor Jerry Brown. I always really liked his philosophy of "lower your expectations until they're met."

The question I have is: who in their right mind would want to be president right now? Seems kind of like buying a house that you already know is possessed by demons.

@OntheWindowStand,
The last time I was so inundated with the competitive measurement of body parts was probably in the high school locker room...though it was at least acceptable in that environment because we were 1) immature and 2) in a compromising position that prevented us from lying about our big claims Surprised

Now that's using your head. Sadly, the inverse seems true for every boss I've ever had. How does that work? I had a boss once who made $80,000 a year for basically sitting on his ample rump in his office reading comics and "supervising" and he took me aside one day and told me he didn't believe in dinosaurs because there was "too much oil in the world." I responded the only way I could, and said "hunh?" He said "Oil supposedly came from dinosaurs, right? There's billions of barrels of oil under the earth. There's no way there could have ever been that many dinosaurs."

Nah. I just like flapping my mouth. Most of the time the sound in my head is like the white noise of a television jammed between stations . . . just hhhhhsssssssssssssss. Also, I'm obsessed with monkeys.

Note that I didn't say "had made me wildly rich and meant I could drive an expensive sports car". But it has financed a spectacularly unsuccessful music career and freed up some of my time for studying ancient languages and philosophy.:rolleyes:
I like the one about the oil from dinosaurs - I must remember to bring that one up next time someone is telling me that the world's oil supply isn't running out and that global warming is just a conspiracy. Could we bring in a Jurassic Park scenario here to overcome the world's fuel shortages?

Hmm, sounds like a couple of your interests are similar to mine. Which ancient languages are you studying? I'm working on latin, and am planning to work on greek as well. Also play the piano for fun, but I'm a long way from a career with that one...

Hahaha, Both!
Confusion only comes with/from 'thought'!
It speaks in the Egyptian book, 'Osiris Rising' (what the Xtians have turned into the 'Egyptian Book of the Dead') about the "old men snoozing in the doorways with the sun in their beards...". A very peaceful image...
It was that that I was thinking about.
When one unfocuses sufficiently (as in the state of enlightenment) one might actually drool. So what. And 'sitting in the sun'.. as I said; or also like at the end of the Darren Aronofsky movie "Pi". Rather than the compulsive mental ratchetta, ratchetta, our hero was finally able to 'get out of his own way' and enjoy some 'sunshine'.
Peace

Oh my, then you must be a 'genius', as I inquired how a 'genius' would reply, and you came a'knockin'! Very creative!

"Meet the new boss . . . same as the old boss." --The Who

People want it enough to spend millions more gaining the office than the office pays. Why does it pay at all? If they have that kind of money they don't need mine.. In fact, when the people are held so powerless, and can't hardly fart without the government's nose up your butt, then such power as the office holds Is fully obwcene. I don't care what fraction of the society elects the president the people not represented, whose numbers are huge are getting shorted. It is nonsense to think any presient is capable of leading the whole people at this time. The best they can do is RULE an unwilling minority in the name of an uncertain majority. If the government worked it would lead us into union and justice instead of disunion and injustice. It is a fault of majority rule that a country can be ruined by halfs.

I studied Latin for 3 years and Greek for 2 1/2 at university. I still read some every few days to keep my skills (or at least what passes for skill with me!) I am now trying Arabic, with limited success. Music - well after playing classical guitar for years the SPCG (Society for prevention of cruelty to guitars) asked me to take up another instrument - so clarinet and then sax. I have really never got past the semi-pro stage. Sort of like those athletes who come 10th in the heats at the sports meet! But I have a lot of fun, playing big band jazz and various things in local bands. Keep playing - it is one way of staying sane in this crazy world.
