You can't fight in here. This is the War Room!
My oldest son can't do math either. To convince him that math was not put on planet earth merely to torture him, we read part of a book about conceptual calculus. Calculus is the math for physics. He liked it and it made more sense to him than multiplication and such -- and I know folks who will not "dignify" multiplication and such by calling it "math". There is more to math than that. lol.freewaytincan said:And now the article won't even load!
By the way, I have always done very well in many areas of expertise and intelligence, and have been evaluated as being in one of the highest levels of intelligence...but don't ask me to do math. I can't. It just doesn't compute.
Actually, I didn't entirely take RJ's first post that way. His post was ambiguous and open to interpretation. But that was sort of the way the thread turned later -- not really any one post but the sum of them all, I guess.BKM said:I've never bought into the George W is "stupid" meme.

Same with Clinton. I don't like the man, but he is clearly very, very intelligent. Not only was he a Rhodes Scholar, but with the kind of election he ran and getting a two term presidency, he can't possibly be stupid either.BKM said:I've never bought into the George W is "stupid" meme.
