    i am not miserable. i enjoy feeling superior to people like Utah Bill.

    yes there are many ways to be stupid and few to be intelligent.

    thats the entire problem.

    Education.

    4 real !

    like that Tarantino guy - made 2 spelling mistakes in his movie title after writing the script for 10 years

    surely you are more intelligent than him

    after all - spelling is the highest form of intelligence is it not ? isn't that why spelling bee is for 5 year old kids ?

    thank you panda for sharing your profound ideas with us. i have only stopped using the shift key in 1996 and had maybe a thousand people point it out to me. keep up the good work.

    you are a perfect example of the problem i am talking about. when a person is beyond a certain level you cannot even communicate to him/her what he/she is.

    for example i don't think i could communicate to you that spelling correctly is an achievement only for 5 year olds.

    i missed a letter - congratulations ! go tell your mother about your success - maybe she will give you a candy.

    evolution used to favor intelligence but it no longer does as even the stupidest person is able to make more than 2.1 kids and the state will take care of them.

    So there is a solution: A new form of "state", which does not do that which you accuse our current one of.

    But the state you discribe would seem to be self-reinforcing.

    Or a less controversial option: Educate themselves.
