I'd bet against it! Is there a line on it in Vegas?

On large headed intelligence (...ah yes); the animal comparisons:
Mouse, cat, monkey ... then his big melon.
Sorry this has been dismissed via research.

Couldn't agree more about the educational system though ... LOL

P.S. love the Fountainhead clip!

locutus7 wrote:After viewing, I would say he is unable to break free of his abusive childhood and the beliefs he acquired then, such as the foundational assumption of a god (his seems to have a deistic "god is universe" Star Wars version).

Moreover, he sees the world in binary terms, and he doesn't seem to have the discipline to focus his talents. He always has an excuse for why he doesn't have a concrete result of his IQ, like the one where he came up with a Wolfram-like theory and lost the paper he wrote it on. Emotionally, he is like an undisciplined grade school boy.

Thanks for posting, though.


There are things to take issue with, without resorting to ad hominem. I know he offered up the childhood stories, but delving into psycho bable is irrelevant.
