Now you are confusing being the most intelligent with being the most interesting.
Don't you understand anything David?
Yes, I don't, Mr. Parados.
I don't understand anything.
I have never understood a thing. <sarcasm>
Intelligence makes someone intelligent.
It doesn't make them interesting nor does it make them more interesting than another person with less intelligence.
I prefer not to confer with fools; that 's Y I speak to U.
I would find Tesla interesting if I was interested in electricity. If I was interested in horse breeding, he would probably be one of the most boring idiots around. (I would also suggest not talking business with Tesla.) If I wanted to talk Physics, Einstein would probably be quite interesting. If I wanted to play a game of backgammon or discuss the history of Greek theater, he would probably be quite boring.
There is something sparkling
(figuratively speaking), magnetic about intelligence in others, especially the young.
I like it in chicks, too.
Do u imagine that the top 2% of the population make most of the best discoveries,
or maybe the bottom 2%, or some 2% in the middle??
I can do math, but it seems you can't.
U r unwilling even to "imagine"
I refuse to restrict myself to any 2%. Why not allow yourself to mix with 100%?
I do that whenever I go out into the world. I don't think that 's a tremendous, big deal; kind of ordinary.
I don't live in a Gated Community of Mensans.
Sometimes people that claim to be smart are really quite stupid. I find that boring.
I don't believe that I have ever met anyone who has made that claim.
Mr. Parados, I 'm not
going to re
-iterate yet again
my question qua whether u found ANYTHING at all
to be of interest
in all of those scheduled presentations at the last American Mensa AG in Reno a few days ago.
By now, I accept your tacit refusal
to address my repeatedly redundant question.
That line of inquiry appears to have exhausted its probative value.
That seems odd; lacking in enuf mental flexibility to admit (tho u have not denied it, either)
what is obvious to most intelligent men, among whom I include u, in my mind
that u studied calculus, as u said, and that u read
the entire Encyclopedia Americana b4 age 16, as u said, but
I 'd be in default of candor in failing to acknowledge the magnitude
of the dichotomy in your multiple posts between your denotation and your conspicuous connotation
U allege that u r of Mensa quality I.Q., but that u have rejected
Mensa, yet in post after post after post
the tacit roar of emotional misery of exclusion that u project into this thread is most prodigious.
( I bet u came close
I suspect that I have hit a sore point, from the tenor of your posts.
(The Parados "doth protest too much, methinks" [Hamlet Act 3, scene 2], tho I don't mind.)
It will not surprize me if u afflict us with acrimonious hysteria
, in response.
We 'll see.
feel too bad. I wish u the best.
