Nope. The more educated I become, the stupider I feel.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Tim, if you're now one of the elites, according to another of your recent threads, you're no longer allowed to be an RP supporter. Big Grin

RE: I am a closet elitist.
I think that 90% of the population (at the very least) are dumb as fuck. I see no reason to give them any say in anything because I see them all the time waving their opinions about (either in person or TV) and you can almost smell their less-than-50 IQ.

In real life I only know two people who I think are even worthy of having opinions on things. The rest of the population are just sheep who agree with whatever they are told to or people who can formulate opinions but can only see everything individually, they lack the ability to see things as a whole and so their opinions are practically worthless.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

If you really think 90% of the people are on the low end of the bell curve, then maybe you need to learn more about how a bell curve works... Just saying.

Granted, in general people seem idiotic, because they keep themselves in a catatonic state or they use their brain power for things like social or entertainment or fashion. If you study some of these people you'll find that they have a higher capacity then you probably care to admit, but they are just focused on other things. I've found that some outwardly idiotic people seem to have a high capacity, but without inspection it would be impossible to tell. Asking them something that you know about isn't a good enough test either. Sometimes, I've been amazed at the knowledge of some people even though I thought otherwise. There are some pretty dumb people out there though, but they aren't quite as common as you might suspect.

What our society seems to focus on (and seems to have priorities in) is probably what makes it hard to discern the IQs of people though.

RE: I am a closet elitist.
I'm aloof, generally it's the other people considering me incapable. I'm quite capable, but I don't want to really focus too hard on things. I make plenty of stupid decisions and I'm poor so I on't feel that elite =p

And just to let you know, most people generally have to roll their eyes in public. It's pretty uncommon to find a large group with competence in your same field of competence. No matter what the occassion is.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.
