Above Average
    #4531118 - 08/13/05 09:44 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Thank God we here are all of above average in health, beauty, education, intelligence and spiritual / emotional development.

Where do the losers, er the below averagerererers,  hang out?

Funny, but I have yet to meet someone who thought that they were below average in a category that mattered to them.

FYI, I am below average in height.  :smirk:

I'm below average in throwing ability. I always tell people I never got into baseball because it's too slow of a game for me but the reality of it is that when I throw I look like a nonce.

Emotionally I'm an 8 year old.

If your biological age is 6, then you are above average! :smile:

Below-averagers live in third world countries, where they were put by God to punish them for making His image look below-average. Euros and Americans are all above-average, due to the size of our craniums and our dashing good looks.

YAY! GOLD STARS!

So why is it unacceptable to hold your intellectual superiority over the general populous but acceptable to do the same with athletic superiority?

ie: I'm smarter than most Americans vs. I'm stronger/faster/better looking than most Americans.

PS: Both are true :smile:

That's because you grade on a curve. The bunies and medows people all grade on a line, so everyone can get an A or B and nobody in the class ever has the lowest grade.  :rolleyes:

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

PM me your e-mail and I will send you my spacey self-designed presets. There are also many cool free VSTs I can point you to.

Ever check the personal ads? EVERYONE is above average in looks, so merely above average is butt-ugly.

For the same reasons it's taboo to suggest that there is any correlation between race and intelligence, even if you deny biological/genetic reasons and focus purely on environmental/social/cultural influences. Some people don't even think it's possible to test for intelligence or general cognitive ability.

I get the feeling most people would rather go into detail about their sex lives or some other intimate area than share an IQ score. The only people I ever see bragging about IQ scores are young teenagers online trying to explain why they're so mature. If you're so smart, why don't you realize it's considered rude to brag about your intellect? It is how it is. People don't enjoy feeling intellectually inferior, so the intellectual superior has nothing to gain by being a dipshit about it.

People are ashamed of the most absurd things.

Interesting that the statement of a fact can make you a dipshit in your world.

Also, when I said "hold ... over" I didn't mean it in an invasive sense so much as a passive one.

"Where do the losers, er the below averagerererers, hang out?"

Let's be real here. Thay hang out at The Shroomery because they are THAT bored and have little left in life.

The fact that most all of us here can afford both internet and psychoactive drugs show that, percentage-wise, we are some of the luckiest humans on earth, the educated and rich minority. For even stupid poor people by your standards may seem like genius kings to billions of people.

Plus everyone here has access to Wikipedia and the rest of the internet, so some knowledge has to diffuse through to them. The really uneducated below-average humans don't waste their time on the internet in the first place.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

Well I'm your intellectual superior, so clearly I wasn't referring to you as "being a dipshit" about anything. Although now I'm being a dipshit... shit. Seriously though, that wasn't aimed at you.

So who was it aimed at? Some people are really blatant about trying to come off as smart, and they often fail. I guess they would be the dipshits. It's just a lack of social grace, and generally annoying. Other people carry it well, they exude intelligence and wisdom without bringing attention to themselves. If you have that type of intelligence you're not holding it over anyone, and only the haters will find your behavior unacceptable.
