ohh noes. koala meat pie is smarter than me, with her (his, its, whatever) impossibly high made up IQ and english majors!!
i am sooo jealous, i wish i was a lying nerd with no friends!
seriously, shut up. we get that you have aspergers. it`s *okay* to be special, just go do it somewhere else, like in the special people forums. there are some great forums for you on somethingawful.com. and seriously, that picture isn`t even of you.

You know how they say they all look alike...I`m sure it is just another older reporter they are placing in the photo instead.

Not to mention one program out there...I don`t know if you some of you know it...it`s called, "PHOTOSHOP!!!"

You`re not smarter than everyone on this site KMP, you just bloviate more about your intelligence and allow a number to validate your existence and lull you into a false sense of superiority.

IQ tests were originally created to measure the learning capabilities in children as compared to children of other ages. If a six-year-old was as smart as a nine-year-old, his or her IQ would be 150, for example. They are often discredited by psychologists as indicators of competency or intelligence of adults.

I learned this in my first month of psych and I was only taking it to pad my GPA. :/

What do IQ and courses of study have to do with any issues at hand, anyway?

~~~~~~~~~~

I`ve never seen grey hair creep up that fast, but it`s not unheard of. Poor guy.

Seems to have lost some weight and stopped to dye his hair. That and the first picture might not be of the same quality of the later ones. As some have said, HD tv quality at the end probably.

Still a big change though.

@KMP

Remeber kids, the more IQ u got the larger ur Epeen is.

Seriously, if you wanna argue, argue in real life, not on a website. Sheesh.

Way to show that 141 IQ.

I think the guy in the post just had a rough drinking session prior to the airing.

Sorry, but `better` is objective, and as I consider maturity a very important character trait, everyone in these comments so far is better than you.

Mensa is suprisingly easy to get into, mainly because the smartest people avoid mensa. Only the people who are trying to show how they smart they are join mensa. Basically, Mensa members are people who are smart enough to know they are not the smartest. I should know, I am one.

And 141 isnt that high.

It`s not necesserily photoshopped or dyed. When i was ten i gave my grandfather pneumonia, it made all his hair fall off and when it grew back out again it was completly white and if he is recovering from some sickness he would look a bit worn in the face.

KMP ftw, I like to argue too. It doesn`t matter what he/she says, it`s all about the reaction to fulfill his/her boredom. I do this with toddlers, It`s not quite as fun, but it gets the job done. "You`re an idiot and your mother doesn`t love you Timmy. Oh, and you will never be as smart or as strong as me so you might as well just jump off something really high like you are told not to, that`s the only thing that will make you special." Then you just watch them grow into disturbed individuals and grin when you think about how your words effected a human being.

"Just because you `know` something isn`t photoshopped and other people believe it is doesn`t mean you can start throwing your own feces at them."
Much appreciated, ThursdayLark.

On another note, the phrase "more and one dialect of english" is not semantically valid in any context, no matter what dialect of English is being presented. Furthermore, orthographic mistakes or typographical errors are not a reflection of the known language dialect of the presenter.

OMFG I`VE GOT AN IQ OF 147 AND A LINGUISTICS DEGREE!

Wow. KMP, I`m new to this site (relatively, joined recently, been clicking links for a while) and I can honestly say including all the LOLcats, bad grammar, fanboys and biggots, you may the antithesis of internet stupid, the most accurate example I have ever come across. Your conduct is deplorable. You should try getting your head out of your own ass and smell the air once in a while. Just because you "know" something isn`t photoshoped and other people believe it is doesn`t mean you can start throwing your own feces at them. Seriously, just stop. You think you`re so smart? Find us some actual evidence that he`d aged that way and as far arguing being fun, go play a video game or watch a movie. People hate you less for doing that.

He`s just so cute, isn`t he? I just want to pinch his little cheeks and turn them all sorts of pinks and red!

Except for Bush, you know...because he takes SO many vacations to his precious ranch in Texas. With all the bloodshed that he`s responsible for here and abroad, well he NEEDS his beauty sleep. It`s SO imperative that he relax and sit back, isn`t it?

KMP: Honestly, if you can`t see how telling everyone what your IQ is, what courses you`re studying and why you like to argue just to prove a point is overreacting, then I guess I have nothing else to say.

Who cares what people say on here? Chances are, no matter what you say, it`s not gonna stop people from saying it. So I don`t see how complaining about it will do anything except start a flame war.

Oh, and I`m sorry. I didn`t realize I had to be invited before I could post my opinion on here. My mistake.

karma69 - I am an Ass. That`s just who i am.

And I am calm. I`m not yelling.

The best way to piss someone off is to tell them "calm down" or "You`re pissed".

Quoting a picture, clever, not original., but it does give a point.

YEs, it`s trivial.

But you see, for me.

I`m having a hell of a lot of fun.

Which is why I argue.

I have fun arguing.

So you see? Not pissed.

"I feel I must step in and defend KMP here...not that he`s incapable of defending himself, he`s pretty much proved that, but why the unprovoked attack?"

People seem to think that he`s taking his argument a bit too far. In truth, I see absolutely nothing wrong with him trying to defend his point... If he wants to stand by something, even if it is a trivial issue to some, then by all means, he should go right ahead.

Masterfu, who`s overreacting? Someone making a point based on observations and experience, or someone who dropped in the last seconds, has nothing to do with the argument yet jumps on board?

I will argue whenever I see something which is "wrong". It doesn`t mean I`m overreacting.

Please explain how I am overreacting. I`m just making points, premises.

People who slander or make excuses are simply people who can not compeat with me on an intellectual level.

yes, My spelling is not in accordence to your version of english. Yes, there are more and one english dialects.

You understood what I said, right? Than why detract from the topic to "make a big deal out of it". It`s strawman.
