how old are you?
I think you take yourself much too seriously.
On the other hand, you behave in the shallow manner of many 22 year olds, i.e. letting the shape of someones chin (or other body parts) bother you.
You feature yourself an intellectual, but you don't behave like one.
You've got a long road ahead of you, just relax a little and enjoy the scenery.
I have a number of points I can make in regard to this but since I need to get to bed I think it will suffice to say currently that you don't know me and have based that entire statement on two threads I have made within the last few weeks which is pretty ironic considering the content of your post.
The thing is, this last guy: he's not that good looking and personally I couldn't give a flying ****, he could look like dog **** and I'd still want his mind. He's smaller than me but who cares. When people bore you it's easy to think about things you don't like in regards to them. When you tell your friends why you don't like someone it's easier to say it's because they have a small chin than to get called pretentious by saying you couldn't really connect with their thought process.
Osso has made the point to me before that I take myself too seriously, but being serious is the predominant reason I come on A2K- it's an outlet for that facet of my personality that I use because there are a lot of interesting minds on here. When I was thinking more I was mainly on the philosophy boards, it's how I started to use the site. When I'm enjoying my own brain it's because I'm thinking about the world from a series of different perspectives and I like to exist in that mindframe, I've got an enquiring mind. I'm not didactic in any of my opinions, or at least I try not to be. I've accepted the fact that this is what I'm like and that some other people don't like it or don't see the worth in thinking this way: so what?
I know you didn't mean it in this sense, but actually, you're right: I don't behave like an intellectual, I go out and drink and take drugs and **** up and come back with meaningless stories like a pretty outrageous 22 year old. But if you think intellectuals can't find a man's penis small when it is or get irritated by small things then maybe you should rethink the concept because no-one thought's constantly stick to one level of 'depth.'
I hate the term intellectual anyway, if you describe yourself as one you sound like a knob. People shy away from it, yet there is no replacement word.
Perhaps to say I have a describing mind may be a better turn of phrase.
I realise I have a long road ahead of me, thus why I recognised this as the first step, thus why I offered the experience up for critique and advice, thus why I'm a member of this forum in the first place.
