That one is really sick, imo. But there have been so many. lol Some I have never even finished reading the original post before hitting the Back button. And the ones with the "trick you into titles"...I no longer even look at anymore.
I just saw the news earlier...how are you enjoying the Cooler weather in Texarkana area??? What a relief today was.
almost everything that gets posted in these forums is moderately to intensely brainless - we leave out brains in a basket by the door before entering, that way EVERYBODY can have fun and no one has to feel bad - as far as I can tell, that is what goes on here. I love it, personally.
naw - I don't even open a thread like that - ditto some of the obvious bids for sexual attention of some kind - unless, of course, I'm feeling exceptionally brainless myself and then I jump right in to tell them how inappropriate or transparent their post is and how much I don't like it - and generally somebody says "if you don't like it, don't read it" so you can see why I say "we" leave our brains in a basket by the door.
I think some of this stuff serves a purpose in being an outlet for inanity or insanity or just plain old cussedness and I don't leave myself out when I'm pointing the finger. Sometimes its fun to just be silly or express our dismay. So right now I'm expressing dismay!
the sex in front of children post is pretty dumb on the face of it and possibly something more than that. There have been a number of posts like that which are very thinly veiled attempts to titillate people by mentioning taboo sex topics - the other day there was one about whether women always bleed for first time sex - the title of it was "Sex for the first time" and there were posts by young pretty women avatars with hubber scores of about 20. Obvious to me that these were solicitations but I'm not sure how that works? they get men to email them or something and then offer sex for a price? I'm sure that prostitution happens here as well as anywhere else online. It's offensive, actually, more than stupid.
Ditto on all the above.... Plus, I guffaw and gag a little bit every time I read about how "deep" this or that or the other person is. So far I haven't seen it, but maybe I just haven't been looking at the right time.
see? we get sucked in all the time thinking we may have missed something deep and profound - and I, anyway, spend hours chatting here with people - sometimes its fun, sometimes I wonder what the heck I think I'm doing. Certainly I never get very deep or profound and shouldn't expect to find that, but I do! I do! I do! nuts, huh!
oh, and I did go to the sex in front of children post and had to give them my words - but basically I think we all got punked on that one if we took it seriously.
Look Pcunix, I didn't mean to set this off. I'm not trying to answer a question, well I am but not this one. This question, the one about the big nob, is the most stupid question I've ever seen. See? it's an answer, not a question!
There's no need to call me "brains", we hardly know each other.
Oh I see. Brains . . .
Thank you though for the reflections accompanying this post. I wonder if it'd be possible to invent a strap-on brain? Whad'you think? You, or I, or both of us could run a comprehensive strap-on chain store for people whose bits were wearing out? Now all we need is capital and a breakthrough invention . . .
Mine was a crazy British woman who wanted the world population reduced to 500,000.... in the belief that she should be amongst the remaining 500,000 because of her high IQ. The first to be lined up against a wall would have been the physically and mentally disabled.
That one wasn't just idiotic, it was in fact distressingly insane, even more distressing were the number of Hubbers that appeared to share her views. A quick look at the Google Keyword Tool confirmed, thankfully, that very few people actually subscribe to or research this particular set of ideals. At least away from this loony bin.
Except her IQ wasn't quite high enough for her to understand that high intelligence isn't a particularly useful trait. Most of the problems that really matter are better solved with a high emotional intelligence than a high IQ- or can't be solved at all.
It's more than that. I always am hesitant to post links here but if you research really high IQ people, many have real problems adjusting to society. It's analogous to being Andre The Giant - you can't play with your friends because you'll hurt them. You are too big to use many tools. But you can't win a fight with a grizzly bear either or jump over tall buildings with a single bound.
It's not a matter of "common sense" - it's that you aren't smart enough to see the sense they are making. As almost nobody else is either, it usually works out that you were right anyway :-)
The most successful people are the ones who are a little bit smart. Smarter than most, but not so smart that they cannot fit in. Not so smart that they can't still see how ordinary people think and use that to their advantage. Many of the successful people you may think of as "brilliant" are not, actually - if they were, they usually will not be successful :-)
To be honest I am starting to worry about the number of people who fail to even bother to read the FAQ before posting questions, which basically shows they have not even done a minutes worth of research on their own.
This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with...
Hi I spent an hour researching online but no one seems to have the answer. On other sites I've been able to post my articles via URL on my Facebook FAN page with the picture, text popping up, but not HUB articles. No...
