probably not relaxing listening to music flipping through BBC news and watching my news mix on tv (6 channels of news at once <3 you rogers cable). Relaxing after a good day at work, that I enjoy and got via my success in school, which I completed high. (don't smoke at work though I like my job).

I think I am doing pretty freaking well, I don't want to imagine it another way when currently I feel pretty good about what Ive accomplished.

These days, having a genius level IQ just means I whoop the *** of anyone stupid enough to challenge me in Words with Friends.

It's sad. I don't feel as smart as I did in high school, because people I associate with and around me have grown more intelligent and mature, while I've sort of stagnated and stopped growing at all.

Maybe alcohol really does kill brain cells. Time to break into that bottle of port!
Smiley: chug

That might be kinda difficult, considering he was cremated and his ashes scattered at an undisclosed location.

Also, even if you found the ashes, they don't contain the ashes of his brain, which was removed without permission by the pathologist performing the autopsy.

On topic, despite a rather high IQ, I've never tried drugs(aside from ones prescribed to me). ****, I didn't even know what pot smells like until two months ago when I caught a guest smoking some on the patio. And it wasn't for lack of opportunity, since I've known several folks who were always trying to talk me into getting high with them during college.

It's not like they could have asked him at that point.

He must be kinda smart. ****, Elinda, if you and I wanted to smoke weed all day, we'd have to be able to pay for it by having a good job that we showed up for every day. In fact, people like us must be stupid, since we don't squeeze everything we can out of the system, whether we really need it or not.

It's entertainment value is directly related to just how high you are.

That, & Wu-Tang Clan ain't nothing to fuck with.

(Wasn't filmed at Harvard though)

Even if I'm so stoned that light posts start engendering feelings of profundity, stoner movies are still pretty much universally awful

That's me. Aside from getting a bit tipsy, I've never gotten drunk either. So whenever anyone says they have a hangover, I have no clue how bad it really is.

My hangover's usually go like this. Imagine your worst migraine, paired with intense nausea and vertigo. Bam! Hangover!

You could grow it yourself too. Then again I imagine the appeal of weed is significantly less in Jesus Land where you can get life in prison over it.

@ Elinda, I don't pretend to be smart, I let my academic success speak for that. I would say I am well informed, I retain a lot of knowledge, but I don't think I am any more intelligent then the next guy, I likely just applied myself more in education than others, and as such was rewarded with better grades.

(if you thought I was being serious about being a genius Im sorry for being misleading, I was just saying that because I smoke a lot of weed. You know kind of making fun of the article.)

The mere presence of Hector Elizondo elevates it to just barely above "unwatchable".

You know what, I'm seconding the "smart people get drunk to shut off" suggestion from the OP's source comments.

I say this as five intelligent people got totally smashed downtown tonight along with me to celebrate my birthday. It turns off all the outside world

I didn't read the article, but if they're discussing alcohol and this was the response, then I might fall into that category. I just want everything and everyone to SHUT THE **** UP.

No. I'd heard this story a couple weeks ago about illusory superiority on NPR. Your post reminded me of that.
