Amazing epiphany I just had
« on: September 08, 2008, 11:27:10 AM »
After briefly glancing through beautiful naked porn artform (women of course) I reached this brilliant (but extraneous) conclusion: BEING SMART IS BEING DUMB.

Allow me to elaborate: In math class, through my sheer brilliance and remarkable wit I managed to score highly (on a dubiously casual math placement aptitude test.) Through this test, I was enabled to bypass two sectors of mathematical study (Pre-Calculus and 12 Chapters of Calculus) Entirely. But, alas, these trials were more treacherous than anticipated. Here begins my Life in Calculus with a foreign math teacher, who is completely devoted to math. You can tell this guy never got anything lower than a 90% in math. As with all math archtypes, the man rarely devoted any time to elaborating about current mathematical errors and the like. But, like all protoganistic archetype wannabes, I felt I could overcome these trials and magically (and effortlessly) prevail at math. I indeed believed this until I stumbled upon my first problem in homework. I soon realized that if my math level (specifically, calculus) was represented by a numeric character ranging from 0-10, I would essentially be a 2. It was then when I fully discovered the epiphany...

We all know Einstein is a stereotypically smart guy. Lets examine his life: Has ADD. Bored with early schooling. Gets a mediocre occupation and continues his humble existence until, one day, he discovers SCIENCE. He then gets famous and now has the sole role of Heroic Scientific Genuis. Due to this imaginary prestige, and imaginary duty to fulfill this imaginary prestige, he devotes his life to the Advancement of Science. Unfortunately, he doesn't really get anywhere and lives an unhappy man. He then dies, an unhappy man.

So kids, wHat Is TEH MORAL TO THIS STORY???

Being smart is being dumb.


I plan on enrolling in pre-calculus this semester.

The
End

Sarcasm is rarely appreciated these days. However, in this case, it is funny  :D

I don't think your assessment of Einstein's life is at all accurate.

"Being smart is being dumb" kinda reminds me of my feelings about the Survivor TV show.

Let me elaborate.

We can all agree who the first place person is, namely the winner. Now... who would you consider to be #2?

I think most folks would take it to be the 2nd to last person on the island because that's the classical definition. However, Survivor is a winner-take-all show. So this person had to suffer through all the same torment as the winner and ended up with nothing. Consequently, to my mind, the true #2 person in Survivor is the FIRST PERSON VOTED OFF THE ISLAND. And to the corollary, the LAST PLACE person is the 2nd to last off the island.

No, it isn't.  What in your post makes a shred of sense?

Just because you don't agree with my philosophy doesn't mean it's not philosophy.

Actually on Survivor I'm pretty sure the last few people get some kind of prize, just not the top one.  The number 2 person should probably be considered the one who profited the most from the reward challenges.

There were also at least two instances where the top two finishers split the prize.

darn... shows how much I watch survivor... still... I prefer to think the #2 finisher was the first person off the island... that much more accurately reflects my opinion of the show.

So what you're saying is...  Studying your ass off isn't always worth it?
