    Re: Correlation between tattoos and IQ

    I know plenty of people with tattoos who are extremely intelligent. In my opinion, it's a mark of a low IQ to believe that you can generalize intelligence on the basis of whether someone has a tattoo or not.

    But go ahead and underestimate me. It will just be one more advantage I'll have over you.
    That's always pretty much been my feeling ^.
    People who mischaracterize me as stupid do so at their own peril.
    They are only putting themselves at a disadvantage; why would I stop them?

    I sometimes cultivate this perception deliberately, when it's beneficial to do so; when the IRS came after me about six years ago, I actually had them completely convinced that the reason I didn't file taxes for my entire life was because I didn't know how (semi-true), and because I couldn't read very well or understand technical language.

    In all seriousness, there are days when being blond with big tits and a southern accent is a definite advantage. I know exactly what you mean.

    If the blond person with big tits happens to be a guy, I would imagine there are many days where it isn't an advantage.

    I have the HOLD FAST planned for my knuckles, is it the placement or the wording that you dislike?

    I'm not sure if the same people who are harshly judging us tattooed folk are teaching their kids to 'don't judge a book by it's cover'. I'm starting to doubt it.
    If you're a professional person than you should know that a books cover is very important at least with the "first" impressions.

    You are right...something I have told my kids. Dont be shocked when you dont get considered for a job because you have visible tattoos. In some cities now they have passed ordinances specifically disallowing the hiring of individuals with visible ink. So of course there is some consequence. That still doesnt equate to the IQ of the individual, but it IS a relevant point.
