I was all ready to do a blog about what a waste Yale University is, but lots of genius interrupted me.

The eventual bog about this has to be right. I owe it.

I’m submitting the proposition, for falsification, that I perhaps have the highest concentration of genius readers of my blog than most, or maybe anyone. It is confounded, and self-selected, so let’s get beyond those criticisms and chew on what it is, really, and why.

It’s happening right now here, but you have to read the comments and click on their test results links.

I’m just guessing, but if jimmy moore did something like this, his range of commenters would be 90-130. Not 125-152.

Intelligence fucking matters, and I’m fucking sick of fucktards pretending as though any old shit counts. Some are firm, others are runny.

    I don’t think you should necessarily leave us hanging without comment on Yale……or even Harvard , with its silly Christmas holiday placemat cheat sheets f or students to preach to their parents. I thought students were at these prestigious houses of learning to acquire thinking skills…..not to regurgitate leftist bull pucky.

    The emperor has no clothes.

      does it scare anyone that “the right” you’re aligning yourselves with is filled with racist, non-thinkers? there’s a lot of talk (and self-aggrandizing) on this blog about how intellectual everyone here is, but your insights aren’t very sophisticated, much like trump’s. does this not give you pause for concern?

    Intelligence paired with a fluidity of the mind is the k.o. combo, a lack of which is quite rampant in the general population these days and absolutely endemic in universities. That saying about having rocks in one’s head is a fitting analogy. A rock is static. It lies there, never moving of its own accord, and is slowly shaped and polished down by the elements, resulting in an object superficially impressive, albeit largely useless. The common end product of a modern-day Ivy league education, wouldn’t you say?
    Water, on the other hand, is dynamic, and is nearly always in motion. It can take the shape of any vessel that contains it, and even change form, yet never loses its fluid nature. Water can’t be broken.

    That’s the common denominator I see in the minds showing up here: a propensity for movement. They flow just a little bit deeper, down into the cracks to discover truths hidden in the overgrown, hulking masses people accept as holy writ. The inclination is toward breaking down intellectual idols rather than prostrating before them. Freethinking washed of the mutual back-patting element.

    Yeah – I got the notion that the IVY Leagues were in the business of formering the latest Preditor Class – I mean, the evidence is all around us: (Larry Summers, Robert Rubin…)

    Then I started reading articles sayng likewise. Now when I hear that someone’s kid is entering Harvard or Yale, I feel a faint tinge of a sociopath en herbe….
