RE: I'm Thinking of leaving
"There is noone, who could not be the teacher of someone else in something."
Balthasar Gracián y Morales (1601 - 1658)

one of my favourite quotes and I hope my translation is ok because I only know it in German

"Freedom is the freedom to say that 2+2=4" - George Orwell (in 1984)

It's just like a sport... for instance, if you play tennis and you keep playing people who suck, you'll just be a sucky tennis player. But, if you keep playing people who are better than you, you'll eventually get better and better.
The best way to hone your skills at anything is to immerse yourself in things beyond your current ability. That's how you learn.

You can drop away if you want; no big deal. But just hanging around, reading, and maybe contributing here and there, will also probably help you improve whatever you feel you need to work on intellectually.

Do your thing, man. Smile

Kim you challenge me more than most, along with Chas and others.

Thanks -I'm always glad to be of help, as are many others here. Smile

I'm not sure those qualities would look good on me... but they seem to suit Chas pretty well. Big Grin

Thanks. I think. Cool

Then I'd say you're ahead of the game. Those 6 PhDs hanging on some overcompensating narcissist's wall are probably actually counterproductive to their realizing this. My mind and reason are subservient to my gut. They take direction from and inform my gut. My gut might course correct based on the information from the crew, but the gut's the pilot guiding the ship. The longer I survive, the better pilot my gut becomes.

Permission denied. You're not allowed to just take the Zappa bootlegs and go home.

Why you feel like you gotta learn something? I'm just here for the party.

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.

If you can de-rail a thread half as well as me and FSM_scot when we get going then you deserve a medal.

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.

Yeah, watch that - nobody else ever drifts off topic around here. Dodgy

RE: I'm Thinking of leaving
Dude, if being out of your league is a reason to leave then I need to pack my bags after this post. The longer I'm here the more I realize how much I don't know

I wasn't . . . until I was
I am . . . until I'm not
