Will you vote for one of the worst two candidates ever, just because of their party affiliation?
That would be silly. I'm going to vote for one of the worst two candidates ever just because of the other candidate's party affiliation!
You must construct additional pylons.
This is the first time I've ever seen one of these forms that didn't check the "asshats" box. Asshats *always* screw things up.
I find that my own positions on encryption mirror a lot of NRA positions on guns...I am not sure what to make of it.
Did you hear about the toddler that found his parent's encryption in the closet and encrypted himself? Did you hear about Dick Cheney "accidentally" encrypting his friend in the face?
Neither did I. That's the difference.
I took a real, proctored IQ test when I was applying to a highly selective middle/high school. I remember two of the questions specifically, one where I was read a set of directions and asked how far I wound up from the starting point, and another where I was asked to rattle off as many nouns as I could in 60 seconds. How these measure IQ, I couldn't say (but I suppose they are better than SAT-style arithmetic & vocabulary questions, which only measure how much time you've spent studying).
I also remember my mother wouldn't tell me how I did because she knew that I was not likely to be a sportsmanlike about it (good result or bad). But the score isn't relevant to this discussion of whether or not IQ tests are real. They're real and I've taken one.
I prefer the Dungeons & Dragons definition:
Intelligence tells you its an ancient red dragon.
Wisdom tells you TO RUN!
It is surely a great calamity for a human being to have no obsessions. - Robert Bly
