It's actually very rude to call someone an idiot. You're no more intelligent than anyone. We all have the same brain capacity. So you shouldn't come on here to subtly idolize yourself by insulting people. It just shows how insecure you are.
-54 WTF, 1.sure average humans have the same brain capacity but that doesn't mean everyone necessarily uses the same amount of their brain. 2.You just contradicted yourself by saying all humans are stupid and intelligent. 3.You sound as if your saying, a NASA engineer is just as smart as an Idiotic bum.
He had a learning disability in writing. He was still the most intelligent person ever. Want another example look at Newton. Neither him nor Einstein got to be as smart as they were by studying, they were born way more intelligent than the average person, and hence they accomplished way more than the average person
OP if your weight is bothering you do something about it, like exercise and eat healthy, and if that doesn't help (which it should) go to doctor. Some people have problems losing weight. To the people fighting about a few stupid misspellings (that have nothing to do with the fml): please shut the f*** up. I mean that in the nicest way possible. You're wrecking everyone's fml experience with you fight.
-119 You just contradicted yourself AGAIN by saying people aren't born intelligent they acquire knowledge to become intelligent, meaning that someone who has acquired much knowledge such as a NASA engineer,doctor,scientist, etc has more intelligence than said bum, hobo,mcdonalds employee,etc.
Also theres that 12 year old kid who is tutoring college students in quantum physics. Margie youre saying that i couldve done that but was just too lazy to study it? No. He can losten to a song twice then play it perfectly on the piano after finding the right keys in just a few minutes. Our brains are wired differently. Im profficient in language and numbers. But not arts. We do not all have the same capacity.
Haha I actually find this conversation absolutely humorous. Because various scientists agree that we are all born with the same intelligence capacity.... So I really don't get what in the blazes you guys are talking about. As endearing it is that you guys have several (humorous) opinions on this subject matter. I'll stick to the scientific facts. But I really admire your spirit
Am I the only one who agrees with her? I guess everyone is being mean to OP because they're JUST LIKE HER and trying to make themselves feel better. Even though she posted this on FML, stop being so rude. It wasn't a good choice to post it, but some of these comments are TOTALLY out of line. You should all grow up. Beached whale? Really? How would you like someone calling YOU names for something you did?
For all the people calling her retarded just shut the fuck up, at least she id trying to debate her point in an intelligent and non ofensive way, which i find a lot better comparing to your ramblings. For margie, actually all humans get the electric impulses through the brain at the same speed, that is why they say we have the same brain capacity, but there are new found proofs, that there are several intelligences( yes it's in plural) in a person's brain, some are more advanced than others, thus explaining the dificulties and strong points in some areas. Every person uses a diferent amount of their brain, although the average is about 5%, people that use a bigger amount of their brain are considered more intelligent, because they can process more amounts of information faster by using alternate ways. A person cannot become more intelligent by learning something, they just start using the information they've learned together with their respective intlligence for their own benefit or the benefit of others. Ohh and your saying speaks about how everybody is born intelligent, but only a few take advantage of it So yes you are right and wrong at the same time. Hope the info helped
People are definitely not all equally intelligent and stupid. People are born with The same brain capacity for intelligence, yes, but you have to gain intelligence throughout life and many people have harder times with it than others. Take for example one of my nieces, who learned her colors within her second year, and my other niece who is turning 5 and still can't get a hang of it. Saying nobody is smarter nor stupid is like saying that a highschool dropout is as smart as somebody whose been to college and got their doctorate. Also, some people are born with learning disabilities which can harshly affect their brain capacity and ability to comprehend certain material.
Sorry I accidentally pressed send damn iPod. Heres what i meant to write... Ha I love how all of margies comments have either been buried or they're on their way to being thumbed down enough. And Margie sure you may have a point (no matter how idiotic) but if you have taken even two seconds to get to know this site even ur underdeveloped little naive brain could understand that this is not the audience you want to be Its mental equality and manners to.
Honestly, I didn't thumb Margie down for being wrong. I thumbed her down for being an arrogant, holier-than-thou blowhard. If so many scientists agree with you, Margie, you should have no problem citing a study for me. If you can't, don't go around acting like your opinion is more important than the opinions of everyone else around you.
because im an idiot, im going to throw in my 2 cents here... stupidity is the lack of the ability to acquire and apply knowledge. thats completely different to being ignorant, which is when someone is devoid of knowledge. if you believe everyone is capable of the same level of intelligence and it all comes down to choice then that would be an example of ignorance. also, as far as being rude goes, internet language and real world language are very different. harsher words are used to convey the emotion that is usually present in real world discussion. but even then, pointing out the obvious is not always a bad thing.
176- You are a retard. That is a myth that people only use 5-10% of their brains. Obviously you know nothing about neuroscience. The majority of the brain is used for life maintaining processes (I.e. Breathing, circadian rhythm, and the rest of the sympathetic nervous system). Only a small portion of the brain is ever not being used at a given time.
Thank you finally someone understands it! No I'm not a doctor nor a neurosurgion. In actuality I suck at biology, however, even I know that we use all 100% of our brain. I think the 5-10% comment only applies to the conscious use of the brain. Because I know that I don't sit here and tell my heart to beat or my body to sweat or my stomach to digest and absorb nutrients. the 5-10% is muscle coordination basically. That and attempting to learn and yet even then we do that unconsciously because we don't store it in a specific nook or cranny in our brain.
Margie has simply made herself look stupid and has just dug herself into a bigger hole by trying to fix it (terrible attempt if you ask me). The way our brains work and are wired are how we become smarter. The fact that we have the same brain capacity doesn't mean crap when it comes to our ability to learn and out desire to learn. I think Margie should just drop this argument because she's not going to EVER win
Actually pretty sure Hawkings theories have been discredited or proven wrong on space and time? Einstein brought a lot more to America than hawkings. Einstein wrote the letter that warned us about Germany and their attemps at an atomic bomb. hawkings is just a pissed off atheist.
