There are a lot of people who have a reputation for being smart and intelligent. Are there any people, who every thinks is smart, but you think is an idiot?

Basically, overrated intelligence.

I think of Frank Zappa and Jim Morrison.

I must disagree.

I think Frank Zappa was a genius, and one of the best musicians in recent time.

Frank Zappa is overrated? Who do you think taught Steve Vai how to play For The Love of God in 7/8? Huh? I do hate most of his trippy songs on You Are What You Is though...

I don't think he's a bad musician, but whenever he talks about other subjects...I agree with lots of things said, but I think a lot of his thoughts are really stupid. Just my opinion, though.

ha, wow, i never knew that. you're the first person that ever agreed with me on that. everyone at my school who's heard him likes him and they're like "oh yeah, our intelligence is like right here *hold their hand about chest level* and his is like way up here *hold their hand way above their head* his lyrics are so deep and psychotic blah blah i love men blah" and it gets old. AND my one friend i was arguing with about it today said that Porcupine Tree and Dream Theater have crappy lyrics. i'm not saying they're the best, since i don't really know who is, but seriously..

Okay, but I'm not in the mood to really have huge discussion on this.

"The essence of Christianity is told to us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the Tree of Knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your ****ing mouth shut and hadn't asked any questions."

Honestly, I just believe that if he's going to sum up the essence of Christianity, it might make sense to mention Jesus Christ. He's kind of a big deal in that religion. Plus, even though this might not necessarily contradict the quote, not all Christians believe in the garden of eden story or some of the messages in the old testament.

His lyrics are ok, but really they dont make sense coming from him seeings on how he was so priveledged. His parents were both into music and supported him fully. I feel like he is a good song writer but definately a poser. Either that or he has some serious mental problems, idk. Also he is seen as a legend around these parts, so a bit of my hate may be that I am jealous of him.

I think Jim Morison was so high he made sense to those on acid... they were on the same wavelength.


Tom Morello comes to mind. I like his work, he's just a little out there.

Also, Michael Moore.

Lennon was a pretentious prick.

This psychotic slutty bitch who I work with. She thinks since she's 23 that she ****ing knows everything. She went on this ramble about how love is so intellectual and said love was "blind, beautiful, anger!" trying to sound like some ****ing poet.

I agree that random facts don't = intelligence.
#35
Erm, don't really know about famous people cause I don't know them personally, I mean I'm sure they're all quite different if you talk to them one-on-one. I do hate when people who make A's assume they're smart, or generally people who take for granted the "fact" that they are "smart". Come on man, grow.

Umm, speaking of Metallica, I think their drummer is a total idiot. Lars is the kind of person that knows a couple of facts about a topic and thinks he's god. Then again, there are a lot of people like that in the world. Bush is pretty dumb, but you have to give the man kudos for sticking with his "ideas" (thats about all he has). KKK members are pretty dumb too, I believe the black guy in American history X explained it well "We just gonna hate *****s all day, dont know why, but we are"

hes the furthest thing from an idiot, but i think that stephen hawking's intelligence is overrated...

i watched 'the hawking paradox' two nights ago, and learnt that he came up with this theory which went against a fundamental principle of physics, and nobody could prove him wrong, but then a guy did prove him wrong. so then, he spent 30 years trying to come up with why he was right again, but he couldnt do it, so instead, he presented to the entire world of physics a theory that no one was right with almost no proof.

dont get me wrong, hes a very very smart man, but i just think that he is overrated.

this one friend of mine, his name is David.
oh, and first off, im not claiming im smarter or more intellectual than him. im just saying, he's a dumb****.

so anyways, he'll make some comment on monday, and by thursday, ill have it stumped. but everyone believes him over me. honestly, i dunno why he has more credibility than me and a couple other friends of mine. like, my girlfriend is dead smart, but no one will believe her over him.

sorry, that had no point, he's a douche. its hard to explain. you'd have to meet him to understand.
