    Default Intellectual Snobbery: I think I'm getting over it.

    I must confess something. I am a (recovering) intellectual snob. I judged people according to their IQ and I was wrong. I hope by getting over it and learning to be cool, I piss off fewer people.

    Does anyone else have anything they would like to confess?

    I confess I shared this problem of yours for awhile as well. Then I went the other way. Then I went back. Now I no longer give a shit.

    I also confess that I have eaten all of the plums in the ice box. Forgive me, they were so sweet, so delicious. so cold.

    It's best to keep in mind that we're all humans, and intellect doesn't make you a superior superman. It might make you an exemplary man, but not one who necessarily lords over all by virtue of mental power.

    Precisely.

    Raw intellect isn't suggestive of anything but genetics.

    You think it's genetics? I think it's how much soda you drank as a baby and how much meth your mom snorted when you were in the womb...

    Yea but my mom got the good meth without impurities when she was pregnant with me.

    I cost her a little bit more, but damnit I was worth it.

    I confess I dumb myself down for people. I'm really afraid of people rejecting me if I have a different opinion about things or have a smarter answer to a problem. Some people are really sensitive and not everyone can handle that there is someone smarter then them in the world. They need a kick in the butt. I'm too lazy and scared to be that person.
