All this nonsense and babble white knighting, defender of the fools, rescuer of the retards!

What kind of job does one such as you have?

You just drone the same incorrect assumption on an on an on. I hate to burst your bubble, but as to life on planet earth those types are at the bottom of the heap, the most ignorant, than anyone else. Those fuckers are clueless, blinded by the glitter, like a deer in headlights. They're just throwbacks to an age where man was more ape like. An unthinking drone, easily dazzled by lightening and fire, and shiny rocks! The only thing they are capable of contemplating is their fear of non survival, but to some very blinded, and twisted degree, an incessant, insatiable fear that drives them far overboard, well beyond their actual needs, their wants and desires, ever shining on like some crazy diamond. They just don't get it, they never do, and then they die and rot like everything else! A waste, when they could have been benevolent gods!
So it's measured by your cozy chat that leads to nowhere?!
But how can you know where a conversation, or cozy chatting in your case, shall lead, one that you'll be a part of, and can help lead where you want it to go, unless you engage, and try it? Unless of course you are saying that you know, what you have to say, shall lead nowhere? Is that what you're saying?

Do you know why there are admission to universities? ..to sort out the idiots, the retards and the fools. Because it's not worth educating them.
Bullshit, it's to make money like all greedy bastards want to do. I went to university. My government helped pay my way. And I was on the Deans list 3/4's of the time I was there. The 1st quarter was the adjustment period. My sociology professor couldn't wait until I handed in my paper, he said so himself. He said that he knew it was going to be on fire, due to my participation leading up to it. He was very disappointed when I had to drop his class, as was I. But that's how it goes sometimes. I did well in the college I was in, but then I was already in my 30's when I attended. Sure I wasn't a 4.0 student, but I was above 3.0, and I'll accept that, considering how much I tried, which actually wasn't much.

No I'm not trying to dazzle you in any way, shape or form with my show of mediocrity. I just know you think me an idiot, retard and fool. But believe me, I'm no mans fool! Face to face and you'd 'know' it! You'd see it in my eyes, assuming you'd know, what it was, you saw, of course. You might even be able to feel it.
You should try and really engage, tell someone the why of your understanding, enlighten someone. You might even like it!

It really doesn't matter, hex, as a job doesn't define anyone, it's just the crap they have to endure, in working for the weekend, because, "everybody's workin' for the weekend." ;) Life is what happens after the fucking job. Unless of course one actually loves their job. I haven't loved one of mine! I've gone to work, so I can afford to get away from work! ;)

If you're one of those lucky people, that has a job they can actually say in truth, they love, well good for you. Like I said, "you're one of the lucky ones!"

She's not stupid. The admissions tests to universities are mostly pieces of crap. They only measure a few types of intelligence. And none of them is your aptitude for finding truth. Then the school system makes you feel bad if you don't memorize their inferior ideas. I'm thinking that she might be playing dumb. But even if she just doesn't want to answer your question, you need to stop the hate.

Yearh, I thought so you don't have any or your job really suck.

Jobs usually defines ones intellect, the higher job the more intelligent, this does indeed reflect your total lack of understanding the concept of relevance, since you can't differ from crap to usefulness.

When you can't see that Trixie just pour out nonsense and babble, then you are hapless retard.

I'm sorry to have to tell your this, but I think that you are projecting your mentality onto others. Even if Trixie is just pouring out "nonsense and babble"; that doesn't make what you are saying wise.

If this were a business and you fired her, then she would have the right to sue you for sexual discrimination. Could you prove to a judge that you aren't being sexist?

Or do I need to learn from you? OK, I'll do my best: Trixie we need some coffee and sandwiches, but don't try to have a serious conversation with us. That's just for us intelligent people.

It is just blind leading the fools. It is better to be a fool than to be blind. Foolishness is a state of mind, retardcy is a state of mind, but it takes a miracle to heal the blind. By retardcy I do not refer to clinical retardation.

I am the most wise because I do not keep my thoughts to myself. There are 7 billion idiots out there, 1 percent are wise, but of those wise they hide their wisdom in the sand. I am the most outspoken, therefore, I am wise. My wisdom is not yet complete, there are other sages out there who know some things I don't, but a lot of their presented works are full of half-meanings, due to a little bit of dishonesty on their part, and also not having the amount of experience as I do. I do not care about human concepts of humility, it is irrelevant one way or the other. Also, saying that someone who is not humble, is therefore not wise, is in fact a logical fallacy, because humility is not the definition of wisdom. It is related to power over ego, and although I do have an ego, it does not such a serpent as many other's before me.

As far as your thoughts on jobs and money, I am beginning to see the wisdom of other's on this forum beginning to crawl from the shadows. You are seeming like the most unwise one here...

So who do you prefer to contruct a skyscraper the highly educated engineer or the fool? ..do you want to have surgery by a fool or a specialist surgeon? Do you want a fool or a pilot to fly the jumbo jet?

Well what I mean by that, is they flat out make up facts in universities and the students pay good money to eat it up. The university is set in its ways, and might as well be blind, because they are afraid to lose their paychecks. Where-as the student is more of a free-spirit, free to abandon his foolishness at any time, the university is a giant group, full of prestige and rules, and it is very hard to change such a group.

If you read all of my posts, which I would expect you would have not, you would have known my thoughts on surgeons. Yes, certain professions require a sticker. One does not require a sticker to think.

As far as skyscrapers go, you are missing an important idea. Why build them in the first place? What goes up, comes down.

That was very civil. Thank you.
This might come as a surprise to you, but the higher up on the ladder you are, the more lies people tell. And they get better and better at it. When's the last time you had a real conversation with a group of executives? I mean where you just openly told each other things so profound that it actually made people angry. I'm guessing that it is just some rhetorical nonsense about how much those people who are doing what you don't want them to do are actually mistaken. Maybe something about how all the Democrats are overpowering you. Maybe you have an employee who is actually reasonable, but they just don't fit into your world of lies. So you must lie about them to hide that fact. You must show them up, because they are obviously not wiser than you. You are the one in authority, so you are correct. And I'm guessing that you never promote these people unless they start lying to you and telling you how right you are about everything that you have proven with your fallacious arguments. But that doesn't actually help you or them, because you don't learn to reason like them. They learn how to lie like you.

This is spoken straight out of your ass.

So you are basically saying that ALL chiefs and directors are compulsive liars, that's rich! Do you actually have any statistics to support this absurd claim? Sure sometimes leaders must lie or stretch the truth in order to keep things calm or motivate people, but being a compulsive liar ..no!

Yeah, that's what he's saying, and he'd be right. There's no reason's for leaders to lie to people and "motivate them". We call that propaganda and censorship. They aren't compulsive liars, but they'll lie if it helps them gain more profits and power. I can't believe I'm even having this conversation, I feel like I'm talking to a some random 14 year old I met at the store who doesn't know anything about anything.
