I fukking sukk at arguing but have an insane ability to process information quickly and lots of it.

Meanwhile guys like Rasheed1 don't seem to be bookwormy but are good at articulating words and responses.

Easily, I speak 4 languages fluently and I when I did the swedish version of the SATs I was in the top 5.8% BUT I'm a freaking retard and my mind is equal with a pile of shit.

There are people that are social geniuses, musical geniuses, athletes that can process spatial awareness at a high level is a form of genius, etc.


And I totally agree. Having great social skills far outweighs anybody's ability to be great a math or programming or some sh*t like that. In law school for example, there is a saying that goes like "all the A students become professors, all the B students become judges, and the C students make all the money." It's because most of the time all the kids who are dedicated enough in their studies to get straight A's in the program are socially inept, and can't handle the the social demands of the practice.
This got to be one of the dumbest and more ignorant thing i have ever laid my eyes upon.

Sorry your are butthurt because your IQ score is low, but you're not living on a cave right now thanks to the guys with high IQ.

You can teach social skills, you can't teach high IQ. And ever wonder that those guys have low social skills because the were always picked on by those guys with "great socials skills".


Your ignorance is truly remarkable. That part of high IQ = good at IQ puzzles is brilliant!

Agreed. He's got a pretty dry sense of humor too. He comes across as someone who could engage in some intense conversation but would also be down to going out and getting stupid drunk.

Actually I'm pretty much a Brooklyn Nets fan these days. I was too young for glory days of the Knicks and my Dad was a Dave Cowens fan, so I grew up a as a Celtics fan even before they drafted Bird, but I haven't been a hardcore fan of any team sine I was in my 20's. Actually when I joined ISH it was part of return to basketball fandom brought on by the Magic-Bird nostalgia that was going around. I did, of course, root for the Celtics against LA in recent years.

Agreed, I have different political views, but respect his knowledge and am very impressed with his knowledge on a variety of subjects.

I'd also mention ThaRegul8r, Psileas, Fatal9(doesn't post here anymore,though) and KBlaze off the top of my head. I'm probably forgetting some, but I primarily post on the NBA board.

OT: The discussion here (on the NBA Board, don't spend much time on OTC) is definitely at a higher level than it was at my last stop (ESPN NBA General, ugh ). If you parse out the trolling, this is probably the best basketball forum out there.

I would say RGM has the best pure basketball talk. This place is way too diluted with Kobe And Lebron talk, and isn't moderated enough IMO. However the OTC has its great moments, although it used to have more interesting characters a couple years back
