    For someone who’s suppose to really smart Jason can be really stupid.

    I have a friend who is a certified genius, but I swear that he could get himself locked in a convertible with the top down!

    @K.C. Fahel

    Yah, I’m supposed to be really smart, I’m in all honors classes and two grades ahead in math, and yet of all my friends I do the stupidest things.

    What is funny is that while we expect people of low IQs to do foolish things, we somehow expect people of high IQ’s to be wise and it gets our attention when they are not.
    .
    It’s strange, but the ability to see the results of an action (wisdom, if you will) is lacking just as often in “smart” people as “dumb” people.
    .
    I’ve seen a lot of college grads get permantly stupid over their time in college from drug use. Some of the dumbest people I’ve ever met had PhDs in things like art or psychology, where they showed up for class occasionally and partied the rest of the time.
    .
    When I was at Oregon Tech, Hewlett-Packard did a study. They found that B students were the most profitable for them. But they still continued to pick the A students. (Ancient history, back when HP was a major player in the electronics biz and hadn’t thrown most of it away.)
    .
    Then there are things like affirmative action. I’m supposedly qualified for 21 different series ranging from engineering to biology from GS-4 to GS-13 and once worked for different agencies and departments, but in recent years after getting to the final group of 3 to 5 candidates for a given job, more than 1500 times it went to someone without the degree and/or the experience required by the job slot. I finally gave up and concentrated on books.

    Well, you can pretty much guarantee that the water in a hot tub contains more wildlife than a swimming pool … Gotta’ be really diligent with sanitation in a hot tub !!

    I’ve said it often, book smarts and street smarts are two very different things!

    Just stop treating the pool for a couple months, they’ll be all kinds of things crawling out of it!

    Well, speaking as a wildlife photographer, I know places where you might find alligators in your pool, even in some well developed areas. I rarely see them, but black bears live in my yard. Jason may seem foolish, but with patience and training you can find all sorts of wildlife in urban areas, from raccoons to the occasional visiting mountain lion. Jason would have much better luck at morning or evening twilight.

    Jason is smart in math, but he’s pretty much an idiot at everything else.

    Jason and Marcus let their ability to be skeptical wither away. Now they are way too gullible.

    Ahh the difference between intellect and wisdom. You can have one without the other. Dr. Frankenstein is a good example (the prototypical ‘mad scientist’), he was very smart and not at all wise. (Please note that Frankenstein was the doctor not the monster. So many seem to not understand this.)

    Genius does NOT = common sense.
