@IRFRANK,
I think a bit of both is a good balance don't you Frank?

Maybe it's just semantics. As I see it, we are all intellectual beings. That is innate, and shouldn't be confused with intelligence. Whatever each of us gains from life, what good is it if we don't know how to use it? Some people have amazing educations yet stumble through life accomplishing little while others graduate from high school (or not) and seem always to know what to do next. I don't care much for people who confuse intelligence with the length of the education, and like to call the uneducated ignorant.

So, you are speaking of an age group, say, 18-24? I think some this age are preparing themselves for, possibly, a worsening economy.

What's to not be proud about eating when you are hungry?



it's called humour, it's usually put forth with a degree of exaggeration

@Pemerson,
I meant to say: Intelligence is innate and shouldn't be confused with education.
