>Omen<;4989536Did it ever occur to you he did it to make more money than the typical 9-5 grind you get stuck in wading through yrs of college in the hopes that the job market is solid in the field you're studying when you graduate? [/QUOTE] Or maybe he isnt nearly as smart as you try to credit him for, got way in over his head, and dropped out.

Im pretty sure if he was able to get into computers then, he would be working during the computer PC explosion of the late 80's, early 90's, and would be making way more than he is telling people how they are a redneck when entertainment is a six pack and a bug zapper.

>Omen<;4989536 Man you are overly negative and prejudiced toward this guy for no apparent reason other than perhaps a hatred for anyone whom even comically calls himself a redneck.

My "apparent reason" is he is stupid. He isnt funny.

[QUOTE=>Omen<;4989536] He's no doubt accomplished far more than you in his life or most average citizens that like to sit back and criticize for that matter.

And I have accomplished more than you in my life. Are you going to kill yourself, or say "ok it doesnt matter", and move on?

Really, when did this thread degenerate to petty insults and Jeff Foxtworthy?

You guys need to go back and read my first post in response to NiteStryker calling him a moron, followed by Nazoa claiming him a genius. I in fact said "I wouldn't say genius" and merely went on to example that he doesn't fit the typical mold of "moron" NS so quickly labeled him with. It sounded to be an assumption merely for his comic play acting about the redneck lifestyle, which is obviously heavily exaggerated to begin with.

@Nem, No one has made more assumptions than you on this subject, which quite frankly fits the mold of an eccentric racists quite conveniently if one wants to assume. If most were to have to judge a person for whatever reason without fully knowing their background based on what I exampled of Foxworthy's involvement in education, business, and community work, I seriously doubt most would take the chosen path both of you have in putting him down and labeling him as too stupid to attain his goals vs defending him.

How many morons suddenly decide they want to pursue a career as an engineer? I think it's safe to say those with an extremely low intelligence quotient wouldn't even entertain such ideas. So I find your babbling on about Stalin in a poorly attempted philosophical way after admitting all you know about the guy is what I've said to be quite ridiculous and no more than the rantings of a pessimist, whom perhaps is disgruntled over his own failed pursuits. After all, being a mod on a commonly known public forum if anything implies you have a lot of free time on your hands, time most accomplished people with a full plate don't have. In fact that is particularly obvious when you spend that time here more as a member than a mod, nit picking like a troll, which you often do.

@NS, Obviously you have no clue what scale of wealth he has earned in comedy if you think he could have earned more in computers, that's laughable at best. And whether you see him as funny or not is irrelevant to the argument of intelligence or racism. Nor does mentioning it make you sound too accomplished or intelligent yourself, so I'll take those last comments comparing yourself to me, which is also irrelevant, assumptive, and extremely arrogant and fool hearty, with a huge grain of salt.

What I see here is two self created pessimists, struggling to enjoy what little they've accomplished themselves when they see certain people in the limelight with huge wealth earned merely by having a knack for making people laugh while taking the time to do some serious outreach work. In my book such people are far more respectable than those hiding behind their computers throwing random digs at those whom have no doubt earned and accomplished far more than they ever will.

Yes I religiously compare my life to other peoples' and then struggle with the thoughts of suicide. :rolleyes:

Ive accomplished quite a bit in my life so far, and I dont envy others or wish I had what they have.

I can throw around a "random dig" at anybody I please. Once Foxworthy deploys to a combat zone, I'll have more respect for him. I dont like him, I dont find him funny, and I dont have to like him just because he has more of the wealth you cant take with you. Doesnt mean, by any stretch of the imagination, that I secretly wish to be him.

>Omen<;4990335@Nem, No one has made more assumptions than you on this subject, [/QUOTE]

How many then? Let's see the premise list of my position since you're so quick to claim the numerous nature of its components.

>Omen<;4990335which quite frankly fits the mold of an eccentric racists quite conveniently if one wants to assume.[/QUOTE]

I can display a suit cut to any fit and give it a common label at my pleasure if that's the standard. Which mould? You have the DSM criteria for, 'eccentric racist'; or is this just more of your anecdotal stream of consciousness?

>Omen<;4990335If most were to have to judge a person for whatever reason without fully knowing their background based on what I exampled of Foxworthy's involvement in education, business, and community work, I seriously doubt most would take the chosen path both of you have in putting him down and labeling him as too stupid to attain his goals vs defending him.[/QUOTE]

Most people are slave-like idiots whose highest aspiration is to get another few thousand pounds out of their boss and catch a bit of skirt on the weekends. You're going to appeal to that lot?

Still if you told most people that someone went to university, dropped out, worked in computer maintenance for a few years and did some charity work in the third world I think they'd tell you they were nice but dim.

University entry isn't worth a puddle of piss as far as intelligence goes, and is generally taken as such; it's just a matter of effort. I should know; I got here easily enough and with a damn sight less work than most people have to put in. Working in computer maintenance/administration doesn't exactly require a high standard of intelligence. Work in the third world? Well they'll pay practically any warm body to do that. There're vultures around the university every couple of months trying to get people to sign up for their programs. They even offer it as a gap year program after you leave school. It may be a worthy moral endeavour but that’s quite asides from the issue of it saying anything about your intelligence.

>Omen<;4990335How many morons suddenly decide they want to pursue a career as an engineer?[/QUOTE]

You realise rhetorical questions can be answered in ways that don’t support your argument provided the other person is prepared to accept the emotional consequences in their audience right? That’s kinda why they’re called rhetorical questions in the first place. But I’ll humour you: I don't know. How many do?

>Omen<;4990335I think it's safe to say those with an extremely low intelligence quotient wouldn't even entertain such ideas.[/QUOTE]

Most people who I know who are morons want to be of very high station; pilots, scientists, doctors, etc.

But then of course I think it's safe to say the exact opposite to your statement. It’s a common enough coin after all to ‘think it’s safe to say’ that anyone can throw it by the wayside at will. Oh I think it's safe to say the moon is made of cheese and elephants are secretly leading the world into a glorious socialist revolution. Oh happy day when 'I think it's safe' and 'worth a damn' actually went along together in an argument by any truth preserving logical connective. Someone call the academics, the new principle of inference is simply safe to say.

As for IQ: Having an average IQ and not being a moron are hardly the same thing. They were never even designed to be. One refers to the ability to learn to solve a collection of culturally specific puzzles, it was originally developed to test for abnormal learning difficulties and by its very nature you can learn to play it. The other tests the ability to form questions that relate to the aims of the individual in varied situations and cross reference diverse forms of data to create answers.

>Omen<;4990335So I find your babbling on about Stalin in a poorly attempted philosophical way after admitting all you know about the guy is what I've said to be quite ridiculous[/QUOTE]

How does my knowledge of the guy relate to the worthiness of orders of magnitude? He probably has accomplished more than me - and? Most people are older than me, there are positions in life which are of much greater magnitude and to which I don't aspire; presidents, directors of large companies, etc. What can I say? I try to fight the truly crushing depression.

[QUOTE=>Omen<;4990335]and no more than the rantings of a pessimist,

If your argument for someone being smart is to point out that the other side only thinks they're not because they're not optimistic enough then that's not really an argument about things as they are. It's like a Christian saying your argument against believing in god is invalid because you're not Christian.

[QUOTE=>Omen<;4990335]whom perhaps is disgruntled over his own failed pursuits.

I tend to succeed easily; most problems in life have simple, short answers. Thus I tend to be quite bored.

[QUOTE=>Omen<;4990335]After all, being a mod on a commonly known public forum if anything implies you have a lot of free time on your hands, time most accomplished people with a full plate don't have.

I simply act as amuses me. Don’t read your own insecurities onto others.

[QUOTE=>Omen<;4990335]In fact that is particularly obvious when you spend that time here more as a member than a mod,

And you would know this how? Considering the entire point of moderation is that users don’t see it.

[QUOTE=>Omen<;4990335]nit picking like a troll, which you often do.

You’re breathing air like a mass murderer. Oh look another rationally empty comment operating on the principle of associative slight, how odd.

[QUOTE=>Omen<;4990335]What I see here is two self created pessimists, struggling to enjoy what little they've accomplished themselves when they see certain people in the limelight with huge wealth earned merely by having a knack for making people laugh while taking the time to do some serious outreach work. In my book such people are far more respectable than those hiding behind their computers throwing random digs at those whom have no doubt earned and accomplished far more than they ever will.

What I see here is a fanboy for wealth, charity and fame who thinks that those things correlate with the essence of worthiness in all human endeavours under all value systems; and thus assumes anyone who doesn’t profess to share his world view must secretly just be jealous. But then again this sort of appeal to some audience observer to get statements by without any need to back them with anything let's me say anything I like regardless of truth or reason.

Omen I believe you just got the equivalent of a digital bitch slap. I'd quit while you are behind before its upgrades to a digital dick slap.
