i would probably be a greeny, but my IQ does not allow me to believe in climate change caused by humans, i also enjoy eating animal flesh.
Lots of smart people at NASA and universities that study it and have scientific facts would say otherwise...

And,I would consider myself a green libertarian. It doesn't mean that you can never eat meat, just that it is more natural and not eaten as often (possibly for financial reasons)

Anarchists get a bad rap. They aren't all violent, but I do share your sentiment as to what would happen here if there were no laws or taxes to pay for those.

I think this cartoon could be applied to this conversation.

The thing I have a problem with is that there doesn't seem to be a viable path to live a self-sufficient, environmentally friendly, lifestyle on a boat. Not the $3 million 401k fund to 'retire' at 67. Where is the $200,000 to 'retire' at 35 with a sustainable boat and a low cost lifestyle?

Emotional IQ - sometimes called "wisdom", is a significantly better benchmark than IQ at defining an individuals utility and success at life. Success being whatever a given individual defines for themselves....

not as a benchmark. used to help demonstrate that those who are intellectual are typically eccentric.

My high IQ allows me to think on many plains and manipulate complex machines in multiple axis in my brain, allowing me computer like design ability.
It coexists with autism, and that keeps me from understand people, or being able to communicate thoughts to others effectively.

I would consider success achievement of life goals. i have a few tall goals in life.
1 being a good Christian - an ongoing process.
2 having a V10 viper powered truck -achieved at 28.
3 having a yacht - achieved at 31
4 owning land - achieved at 25
5 seeing the world..... can it ever be completely achieved? not in one lifetime.

the data says what the data says, its all in how you interpret it.

Re: WE, are not slaves.

In one of your many other threads that also got shut down you claimed to own a 1985 Porsche 944 Turbo. And you bought this when?
I ask this because I owned a 1986 Porsche 944 turbo for 5 years. And 1986 was the first year of production for this car. So, tell me again about your 1985. Please.

Someone who can't spell "pity"while proporting to have a high IQ or doesn't understand the distinction between Jewish and Israeli is either a liar or uninformed,....or both.
