And worse, it's probably real close right now to him making this yet another thread about America vs Australia... pulling some selfcentered political point into the mix. And he knows all... And why? Because he has ascended to some non-tranced state...or something. Please. Don't even mention the word narcissistic, Vic. Unless you're willing to describe yourself in those terms.

    But of course most do not want to do ten thousand hours of practice, and so we look for the easy way out and say individual genius is result of derangement or, as we used to say, "Touched by God".

    But all it takes is ten thousand hours of practice. Even Mozart, the divine composer musician, did ten thousand hours of practice.
    If this was true, Victor, by your own logic you'd be a brilliantly convincing debater by now, wouldn't you?

    practice is repetition with the intent to improve.

    What exactly is your definition of "reality"? And somewhere in this thread, I think we've forgotten that there MAY be a difference between what people consider "genius" and what people consider "creative".

    Lets see just who wants to ban me then.

    I am so narcissitic to declare that I am too cool to get banned.

    This still bothers me a bit. I'm sure you would be a more proficient pianist or whatever, but would you be more creative? And I still feel as if there's plenty of people who attempt and want to improve, and practice at it, but still cannot cross a certain barrier. That's like saying with 10,000 hours of practice I could dunk on Lebron.
