    Intelligence is a curse.

    Intelligence is a curse. Ever notice (as a bright person) that people always tell you that you have been given a gift or maybe even a responsibility because of your high IQ?

    Ever notice how you and other bright people constantly get flack about everything and anything that is not your fault while morons get a free pass on anything they have done wrong? WTF? From my personal experience, being born bright is the single biggest curse in the whole damned world.

    Everyone wants something, NOW. You are held to the higher standard while others skate by with p!$$ poor efforts. You get to work hard in school to get a great IT job that winds up paying didly because morons flooded the job market with their non skills and devalued the positions offered so that highly skilled individuals now compete for lower salaries. You can’t get to be the “boss” because you might threaten the existing idiots who hold the other “boss” positions. You will have one or two kids to the 15 future criminals of America that Berl and Alma had in their doublewide.

    True, true.
    Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -Douglas Adams

    We can't agree on the best type of corn chip on WD let alone who should be in charge. It'd be the same issue that the simpsons had with bright people doing the same things that they did.

    Well, obviously I'd be in charge since it's my idea. The rest of you would be like my cabinet or the senate or something.

    Point of order!

    I'd like to be in charge please. I have several reforms that I'd like to enact.

    For instance, If elected I'd petition to have conditions for the common man improved, which means you and I all get a new house, a kicka$$ PC and laptop and car for free. I'd also be a fair and balanced in my administration and I'd have a blue ribbon group monitor this independantly to keep us from having a conflict of interest that might make anything eneven at all for anyone, ever.
