So, not only you can't present a picture-free opening, or stand people actually having any sort of discussion without you, you also can't support your own topic, easily shifting (or should I say escaping?) to other themes. And somehow I am pretty sure you won't be able to support that discussion too. Not to mention that the part of your big-ass post that I quoted is the only part worth reading because the rest of your post is pretty much just pseudo-semantical shit.
A picture-free opening does not hinder the message of the posts, unless you have some kind of mental illness, in which case, I suggest the use of pharmaceutical drugs to cope with .
The topic was about the legitimacy of IQ tests. I concluded it was not legitimate. The reasons were already stated by other users on the thread and I supported their views. If you want the thread to stay on topic, no one is stopping you. Give us your oh so intellectual insight. I love that.
Well, now I have to say to you what I usually say to the newfags who think the site should revolve around them - no, fuck you, doesn't work like that.
Keep on posting in my thread. I like the attention :3
For fuck's sake... first of all, how is that even relevant to the 'topic'?
The topic has shifted since I am no longer interested in the legitimacy of IQ tests and its relationship with racism and intelligence. Since Rune has expanded into various forms of government, I decided to ask these questions. If you want to divert the thread's course, go ahead. You can ask those questions and others may or may not reply.
Keep in mind that
- Information is best learned when taught to others
- New sources of knowledge may spark other questions and break assumptions
- I will phrase questions in such a way so that other users may have a voice in the matter. I want to incite other users to speak their opinions and state their reasoning.
The questions may be basic in nature ("is the IQ test legit or BS?"), laden with misdirected ignorance (fallacies), and/or purposefully written in a crude, tasteless manner. CL members have a special aptitude for reacting strongly to them. If I had resorted using solely the "correct" ways of discussion, this thread would be even more "dead as fuck."
Time to drink the truth serum.
The truth of the matter is, CL does not have intelligent people. We have a handful of pseudo-intellectual users, some that like to use their time on the internet to bash each other's ego. If an intellectual posted on CL (which is highly unlikely) you would insult him/her with pseudo-intellectual BS rhetoric rather than actually discussing things with him/her. Or you'd simply ignore his/her thread because the topic went over your head.
We live in an age of posing stupid people who have learned the art of language as parrots do; through repetition, and as such they parrot familiar talking points and nothing more.
Our pseudo-intellectual conversation is comprised of hearing repeated lines which users don't even fully think through before regurgitating. If it's vaguely identifiable as whatever label you pose as and spoken by someone popular who you happen to like, you're going to repeat that shit whenever you think it's relevant. For the most part, you're unable to explain it, show belief in it, expand on it, and most of all understand it.
It's a culture of faux-intellect. But really it's the same moronic tendencies people have always had throughout the ages. It's OK. Almost all people are stupid. We can find comfort in situating ourselves among other parrots.
Why am I here? I want to have some fun and learn a thing or two.
And second of all, how the fuck did you come to a conclusion that countries are ruled by the people elected by the public?
"Should money "talk" in politics?"
I'll rephrase that question. Do you think most countries today should be "ruled" by people that aren't elected by the public?
I don't know whether it's reading too much into things or rather an attempt to stir up discussion based on whatever I just read and then make up like a million things about it that are clearly assumptions...
None of the above. If the thread stays on a very narrow topic ("Is this test legit or stupid?), there won't be much to discuss after the nth reply.My first post was there to lay the foundation for discussion, which may branch out into other fields of knowledge, many of which I do not have a firm grasp on. This is where the importance of user activity comes in.
Once somebody replies to the thread, I will respond with questions in the hope that the user being questioned will reply with alternative views that may help me understand how the world works. If the user does not respond, I haven't lost much. If the user responds, and with important knowledge, bueno.
Keeping the thread simple at its inception encourages discussion more than introducing a topic that only very few people know about or care about. I gambled with psychology not only because it left many people with differing opinions/views but it is a relatively new science (if you are willing to even call it a science) that can be supplemented with education from more established disciplines.
So, what I gather from this post is
- correlation does not imply causation
- I.Q. and the study of the I.Q.'s of liberals and conservatives does not hold weight on the measurement of intelligence
- intelligence is measured by success, not by political affiliation
yay! common sense~
Going off on a tangent, do you think most countries today should be ruled by people that aren't elected by the public? And if so, how should they be placed into office? Should money "talk" in politics?
Alright. I've got some stuff to do. Since not being on the thread 24/7 is srs CL code violation, I will lock the thread until I am done with work.
Edit: Lol. Onwards~
I like how you included stuff that was from non-personal sources. You rock, sir. I may post some other examples beside Churchill to bring to light that you don't have to be "dumb" to be racist or whatever. How to legitimately quantify various assigned characterizations of each person is right now up to science-fiction, but hopefully, we may be able to see that type of technology during our lifetime. :D
For Secondary Socialization, is it guaranteed that you will more likely than not conform to what you experience?
A question for you: can a person change his/her mindset by willpower alone?
+1 for post by Kirn, because I love him. And because he tells it as it is and is a different and highly "intelligent" person.
Just like the creator of this thread should die by means of putting a poisonous snake up his ass for making a dumbass thread consisting of more pictures than text and with no real sustenance.
Remember the fucking god thread? It consisted of one phrase, and is was a great thread.
you got 2 motherfucking pictures for this motherfucking comment.
You fucking twat.
Love you too Kirn :3 <5
So, what you are saying is... people can change!?
Also, is it really necessary to learn psychology, sociology, biology and other explanations? Can't we just try our best with what we have and aspire to become hokage? C-c-can't I be just like those main characters in my Japanese animes?!!
If learning a concept and truly deviating from the norm means a sign of intelligence that pulls the person in question away from the "dumb" category, then only a handful of people are not "dumb."
If we can visualize this as a sliding scale or a metaphorical thermometer, then at one point, there will be a boiling point where that handful of not "dumb" people are present. No one from CL is part of that group.
I am not that deluded or egocentric to find myself in that group so soon :V
