I gave some thought to joining Menza a few years back, To cite the old Marx brothers line "I would never join a club that would have someone like me
as a member"
The perception I have of the Menza crew is that they are pompus, and emotionally fragile.
As far as Women go, I want one I can talk across to, and they can be hard to find. Seems that a large number of them pretend to be less inteligent
than they are because men are intimidated by them. If I wanted Average - I would have married average. I don't want to "Dumb down" a conversation
because she can't keep up. Sure it was fun playing with the "Dumb Blondes" in my younger years, but there was little amusing about the ability of
Hold ears - Gentely shake head - Watch eyeballs bounce around for 20 minutes. There must be more to a relationship than that.
It has been pointed out already that Inteligence is no guarantee of success, I find that to be true. Some of the most inteligent people I've met
were homeless - they lost everything and lost the drive to get it back, or never had it to start with.
As far as happiness goes, That is a personal issue.
A lot of it is state of mind;
Some of you know I once worked in a Prison - Some inmates would be miserable saying "I am caged up - what have I to be happy about" While others
would look for the beauty there, like a blue sky, or another source of beauty so they could say "sure I am in a cage, but it ain't so bad, I can see
the sky, and smell the air" The ones that didn't let the prison get to them had a much easier time than those who didn't see the little things.
In some aspects of life I am quite happy, while in others (like tring to find worthwhile people to talk to) it is maddening - Sports this, TV show
that, arghhhhhhhhh... How about a bad game of Chess?
How far can I fall (stiff legged) onto 3" of sorbathane without breaking anything?
Lets mix this part with that and this other thing and see what happens.
Why does water expand when it freezes, and everything else contracts?
