Re: Dealing With Idiots

I'm learning in my relatively young age that you really have to write it down so clearly that a 2 year old could get it, or else they will do it wrong.

Re: Dealing With Idiots

Cwatbay offered a smart observation in the "I have a degree thread".
He said being "highly educated" doesn't make you intelligent. I love that.

As a kid I was always taking stuff apart and putting it back together. I believe problem solving leads to common sense. Without common sense book smart has big limitations.

Re: Dealing With Idiots

Find a local shop, not a chain. We used to use one and their service was always fast and they actually cared

The average IQ in the United States is 98.
So the average IQ in the U.S. is 2 points below average...
