I see that, like society in general, some people on this site have very good communication skills and others seem to keep their collective feet firmly in mouth (I may be one of those). Some people write 100 words to get to the point and some1000. What are your thoughts, who gets the Pulitzer? Hmmm?

I am off to the real world but back for Xmas, See Y'all

Damn, C - I'm flattered to even be included, seeing as how there are on the order of 2000 members here. Whodathunk a trailer trash like me would ever be voted "most likely to"...do anything but be sleeping off consistent nights in the drunk tank.

I really gotta' cast my vote for Kniga - he is consistently the most eloquent and moderated poster, and damn if you'll ever catch him with his facts on backwards. He also gets huge points for being a Southern boy of the old school, genteel variety - not many of those left around!

Enjoy your vacation, C!

Ha,
You should be flattered and you still are trailer trash. But you are our trailer trash.

There's a good saying: an average woman prefers to be beautiful rather than intelligent, because an average man is able to see much better than think ;)

Sadie,
No Argument here. You cannot help it if your intelligence shines through the facade. This may be your cross to bear.

God, folks, don`t vote for me, I ramble and witter away and go right off topic all the time. ;-))))) Plus, I`m so "intelligent" that I`m attempting to smoke m`self to death during daylight hours.;-)))

Cyclby, why in tarnation haven`t you put yourself in the poll ? You`ve got a brain powerful enough to turn goat pee into gasoline, AND a pickup truck to run on it, too ? ;-)))))))

However, my vote goes for our resident Southern Gentleman Gnome. ;-)))) Clever enough NOT to puff away on them thar stogies, AND he gets his possessive apostrophes right every time. ;-)))))

Yes, Kniga is not only a smart guy but one of those rare individuals who can lower himself to smartass in a heartbeat.

Kniga,

I've seen the one of Tuesday; it'll be almost one week that I've been thinking of my superprofound response about the problem you raised in our exalted conversation. But was there another one? (e-mail)

Still keeping doing that :-)

Un abrazo,

excellent sense of humor , DJ Biscuit ... it could raise your popularity in fact. I'd give my vote for you but it already belongs to kniga, trying to be stable

Great! So, 'Lo mande dos veces!' forever!!! ;)
i am pretty much intrigued with the meaning of this stuff (c? that's why u have 10 votes and I have 2).. but I trust in you, it must be something very deep as usual .. plus it sounds good:)

kniga
17-12-2003, 12:11
Sadie,

It just means, "I sent it two times," in Spanish in answer to AnitaK, who speaks Spanish beautifully! And it does sound good. Here is my favorite description of the Spanish language:

Spanish is so musical that a soap-powder commercial in Spanish is more pleasing to the ear than the best free verse in English -- the Spanish language is so beautiful that much of its poetry sounds best if the listener does not understand the meaning.

If there's anyone who's wondering who voted for Punch, then please be advised that it was me. It was a protest vote against all of you for omitting me from the ballot altogether, you pea-brained numb-skulls !

Well there's at least one decent chap on this site. Thank you, Braders.

Now vote for me, people !

If anyone requires additional proof of my forum-leading intelligence, I proffer the following items for your review:

-I regularly solve 4 or 5 clues in the New York Times Sunday crossword.

-My brother is a doctor.

-I can say "There it is" in at least four languages: French (Voila), Russian ( ), Korean (Kogi Isoyo), and English (There it is).

-I was wait-listed at Princeton.

-I read Steve Martini legal thrillers; the "Thinking Man's" John Grisham.

-I can correctly punctuate plural possesives (sorry DaveUK, but I gotta sling a little mud at my opponents, you understand).

I look forward to receiving your vote.

Kind Regards,
Intourist

sfjohns67
17-12-2003, 16:35
Well hey, if we're gonna' toss out pedigrees to pander for votes, try mine on fer size:

- My brother recently served 6 months in the Livingston Parish, Louisiana jail for evasion of child support payments.

- I can tell a bluetick hound from a Catahoula cur from a four-points beagle.

- I can place 5 straight rounds within a 2-inch ring at 300 yards from a .223 A-bolt on pin sights NOT scope.

- My 4x4 back home sits a full 6 inches higher than the top of the average human head and has never been stuck in any mud. Ever.

- I regularly find and encircle at least 3 words in the Hide-A-Word puzzles they sell next to the checkout counter at WalMart. I sometimes even buy them afterward.

- I've caught and sold more rattlesnakes to Gatorland Zoo in Florida than anybody with whom I attended high school.

- I regularly read Penthouse, Hustler, Boobarama, and Teen Queen Hos, but only for the articles.

- I think "come caca i muertete" is Spanish for "Eat s..t and die" but then again, it's been a long time since my little orange-picking migrant buddies back in Florida taught it to me.

- I was accepted to Cornell, MIT, LSU, and University of Central Florida, but chose instead to attend Valencia Community College because those other schools were too far away from my great job driving a truck.

- I have more tattooes than any other expat in Moscow.

Now c'mon, y'all know who ya' wanna' vote fer!

You want a little of that mud coming your way too, S67 ? :)

Folks, my opponent's done nothing but shown you that he doesn't belong anywhere out of the South, much less elected here as most intelligent. Defacing word puzzles before purchase, shooting things at large distances, and getting off on porn; hell, the guy's almost a criminal !

Vote for Intourist. I'll never even say "bluetick" and promise to never call you "y'all".

Intour --

I'm ready to vote for you -- really I am. But every time I get ready to push the button, your avatar drops trou in my face and and I can't bring myself to elect you "most intelligent". :p Don't worry though, there are much better things to aspire to than Bardak poster boy, me thinks.

17-12-2003, 18:22
Woland, yeah, sorry 'bout that. If it's any consolation, he's an equal opportunity mooner, showing said cheeks indiscriminately. But I thank you for your tacit support.

cls, if you want to kiss *ss, heck, please refer to Woland's comments above. My avatar provides you with the perfect opportunity every couple of seconds. Geesh, guy, can we be any more blatant in our Sadie-schmoozing ? Besides, if you've ever paid any attention to the Bardak section, you'd know that she's taken already. She's coming with "yours truly" to Thailand once I secure necessary funding.

Speaking of which, you don't have a few thousand bucks I could borrow, do you ?

Sadie
18-12-2003, 09:01
cls.. mwah :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: the avatar is nothing in compare with the reality, trust me ;)

Intour, didn't get it, WHO is taken here???:rolleyes: Our trip to Thailand is sheduled for 2008 if I am not mistaken. Even taxists would charge you for standing idle ;) As you don't pay, till '08 i consider myself to be pretty free ;)
Your aim was to get a little money for the trip. And what do you do, sweet heart?? I caught you on offering OUR, I emphasize it, OUR 17 bucks to Allice!!!! Nu shto za hren' takaya??:rolleyes: :confused:

sfjohns67
18-12-2003, 09:16
That's why you shouldn't vote for Intourist, Sadie! Vote for me, and I'll let you and Allice move into my double-wide trailer down in the swamplands of Louisiana. I'll have to clear it with my wife, but in the meantime we can start spitting out hordes of illegitimate children.

That darned Intourist thinks he's so smart, but he obviously has a problem with misspent campaign funds.

Sadiechka, zaika, what can I say ? It was a moment of weakness borne from the impatience of waiting for four years until 2008 to be with you. It was rash, it was impulsive, it was stupid. Allice would have represented merely a temporary release to squelch the rising tide of my desires. It's what's enduring and lasting that matters (plus the fact that 17.53 apparently won't even get you a campsite in the woods in Podmoskoviye. What's up with that ?). I will not regress again.

People, have you ever seen a more sincere apology ? Not only am I intelligent, I'm sensitive too. Not loutish, like sf67's proposals to my slated-to-be-but-as-yet-uncommitted Sadinka.

PEOPLE ! PLEASE SOMEONE VOTE FOR ME ! GIVE ME ONE VOTE AT LEAST PLEASE ! I'LL DO ANYTHING, JUST GIVE ME ONE VOTE !

It takes a big man not to stoop to begging, and I am not a big man.

I just voted for you, my sweet lover, now you can stop debasing yourself to these awful brutes. And shame on you, sugar-toots, haven't I told you over and over that size doesn't matter? You are a big man, big in the ways that count the most - your spirit, those tender hands, your enormous head.

As for you Sadie, you brazen little hussy, you lay one hand on my man and I'll claw your eyes out, and I've got the falsies to do it! That goes for the rest of you biological fems as well!

Yeah, Baby, Yeah ! Someone voted for me, and if my powers of deduction are up to par, then it might be indirectly related to a certain user registered under the suspicious name of AVoteforIntourist. I have to admit that the login does have a certain ring to it. I don't know who you are VoteforIntour, but I like your style.

Tied for Fourth place. I'm the dark horse candidate, folks. Kniga, I'm coming after you, you smug little gnome. People here want a change. I'll go door to door if I have to, and I will get the votes.

Nambla. Hmm. You know what ? I'll take the vote. I'll take them any which way I can. Me and my rag-tag team of pedophiles, transvestites, and various other perverts are the new crowd around here, folks. So get with it, and vote for Intour.

Um, Mr. HongLo, I'm willing, as one of my campaign promises, to get you a new pair of heels.

Hey Won, go back and change yer vote to me, I have it on good authority that Intourist has a serious shoe fetish, you'll never even lay eyes on whatever new pair he buys for ya'!

Sportos, motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, d*ckheads ? I'm your man. Have you ever heard Kniga profess his admiration for you ? I didn't think so.

SF67, I'm afraid you're going to force me to take out the big guns. Folks, I do have a shoe-fetish, but did you know that SF67 posed in the nude back in his stuggling modeling days to earn some extra money ?

HAH! That's my entire campaign strategy all along, roundeyes, the whole been-there-done-that-nothing-to-hide approach.

Hell yeah, I inhaled! Hell yeah, I had frolicking romps with underaged trollops! Hell yeah, I posed nude! So what?

With me, folks, the writing is square on the wall, you won't tie up your tax dollars for months trying to prove me wrong like us idiot Americans did with Prez Willie J, 'cuz I admit I am wrong, well in advance!!!

Trust me, if you vote me into office:
- I'll be sure to nail every female intern stupid enough to close the door behind her
- I'll send the male interns out for pizza and beer
- I'll put a bottle of vodka down every chimney, and if ya' don't have a chimney, well hell, I'll hand deliver it myself (just make sure your underaged daughter is the one to answer the door, wouldja'?).
- I'll put your vote and your tax money to work on building myself the sweetest, fattest dacha these Wooskies have ever seen, and I'll stock it regularly with the finest Leningradskoe Shosse has to offer!

And why would you want to cast your vote for somebody who spells it "stuggling" anyway???

7 more votes, people, and I will vitually vanish Kniga and SF67 to this site's farest corners of irrelevence (i.e. the pets and technical support folders).

I know you're out there, I can hear you breathing.

For your information, I didn't need the money for those photos, I did it 'cuz I wanted to. Well, it didn't hurt that my leading lady was this grandma with some pretty cool wrinkles. And the soft-core pix were just the only ones that made it to publication, grandma kept the rest for herself.

As for my night with Swaggart, that was just a drinking binge gone astray, and if I remember correctly, that really hairy skank he got caught with later was also there that night. I think. At any rate, I'm sure there was some heterosexuality involved.

Remember, folks - honesty and openness, that's my campaign promise.

Dear WHoreLo, I am leaving Intourist completely to you. Thus I gonna kill two birds with one stone: stay safe and sound on one hand and save 5 years of my life on the other.

Intour, baby, forgive me if you can, it hurts and scars, but I have to do it. Thus I gonna kill two birds with one stone for you as well: I found you an absolutely free hussy so now you can save your $ 17, 53 and let you fully concentrate yourself on your advertising campaign. You are obviously much more successful in that than in collecting donations for our nonstop relaxation on the beaches of Thailand.

With love...
Forever not yours,

Sadie, I'm heartbroken. Why don't you just take that cupid's arrow, twist it around a bit and ram it in further a few times through the gaping wound above my heart ?

We were so good together ! I mean, I don't know what you look like or anything, but the world could have been our oyster. The sky - no limit. Our Thai beach sunset - eternal. Instead you've abandoned me in Moscow, the oyster equivalent of the gooey entrails left behind in the shell.

I won't forget you or our dreams. Fare thee well, Sweet Sadie.

P.S. Who'd you vote for in the poll and did you notice I'm one vote up on you ?

Sadie
18-12-2003, 18:43
It was short, but it was real good, Intour :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:
I voted for Bookie, like I said b4
as for your personal campaign.. i would prefer my man to be the BEST, not necessarily the most intelligent (I believe my 8 votes are more than enuff 4 both of us). But there was no poll on that topic, so..:(
Did you really vote for me? I owe you, baby..:) What is it you want in return?

18-12-2003, 18:58
Sadik,

Together we make a pretty smart couple, huh ? I have 8 votes too. Neat, huh ? Together, that's three more than that kniga guy, who could never envelope you in the waves of ecstatic pleasure emanating from my gentle caresses. What can you do for me ? Sadie, dear, what can I do for you ?

With a tender kiss,
Intour.

P.S. Anyone who's reading this and impressed and has still not voted should click the Intourist check-box.

Sadie
19-12-2003, 10:56
Oliver, that's so unfair of you, I am on the verge of tears here :(, he told you all this pathetic story just to get your prescious vote..
It was him to dump me. As we were a happy virtual couple going to meet in 2008. We mainly needed this delay to check each other's feelings and the gravity of each other's intentions .. and then to rush into each other's cuddles and never to part for two weeks in row.. Intour was supposed to get a lil money for our trip, a funny sum of $17, 500. He was very good at first.. but then..
He was carried away with his ambitious plans to beat Bookie, the only real candidate for the crown of the winner of the Poll!! Intour betrayed our love, neglected our dreams.. He confessed (see above) he had been weak to wait for me and attempted to cheat on me even b4 we started!! I am wounded right in my heart, that's bleeding now, he gave our funds away to allice..
But it was not enough for him! He's using gerrymanders. He suggested Kshisya to be the First Lady in case he's elected JUST to attract the votes of those who like her!! He spams the threads and probably PM boxes of decent Bardak inhabitants!!

And finally got mixed up with this God knows whom calling itself WHoreLo..
He let me down.. it's just an act of desperation, I know..but since he's been gone.. I feel I am so weak..
Well, Intour, payback is n the corner. In the second round of voting, I'll give my votes to Bookie and the justice will celebrate the victory :hooray: :hooray: :hooray:

But I still care about you, dear, just can't help it:iloveyou: :iloveyou: :iloveyou:

Sadushka,

But don't you see, Sugar-honey-bunch-muffin, I needed to win this poll to prove myself to you; to show you that I'm not all muscles, braun, and a firm yellow butt.

Behind it all and inside, there lies a veritable well of wit, acuity, and an IQ the envy of any MENSA member or that guy on , , . My campaiging was for you (and I'm only two votes away, folks, TWO VOTES - Who's gonna give 'em to me ?). See, I can't stop even now. I would have done anything for your respect of my mental acumen.

I was beguiled by the irresistible charms of Allice, but did not succumb. Indeed, the $17.59 is still in my possession (up from $17.53 when I found 1 ruble and 40 kopecks underneath a roll of tape in my top desk drawer).

And still you profess your allegiance to --judging from his avatar-- an aging midget reading books next to a tree stump. I ask you, gentle readers, should not a scarlet letter 'a' adorn her chest ?

Snookum-pea-honey-dumpling, maybe we should try again ? My imminent victory as "Most Intelligent" is meaningless without you.

Yours,
A Torn and Lost Intourist

I'm hurt, baby, I'm really hurt. After so many months of sharing together "the love that dare not speak its name," your faithless, roving eye turns toward another woman. Just because she has the proper biology doesn't make her a better "woman" than me, and I am hurt that you can no longer look past my exterior and love the "me" inside.

Sadie, you can have him. I only hope your heart, arms, and mind are all open wide enough to make this wonderful man stop straying. I can't take it any more.

I leave my vote with you as a keepsake of our time together.

I'm considering the idea in Bardak of putting a price on Kniga's head to remove him the competition permanently. Either that, or I'll need my brother's attorney general to call a recount in my favor, cause this is ridiculous. I can't lose to a midget !

Definition of Intelligence
From an educational perspective, two of the most influential and frequently cited theorists regarding intelligence are Robert Sternberg and Howard Gardner. Sternberg has developed the "Triarchic" theory of intelligence, suggesting that there are three dimensions to intelligence. "Compotential" intelligence consists of mental mechanisms for processing information. "Experiential" intelligence involves dealing with new tasks or situations and the ability to use mental processes automatically. "Contextual" intelligence is the ability to adapt to, select, and shape the environment.

Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences is more widely known among educators, possibly because it reflects what teachers know about their students: that there are many different ways of being "smart." Gardner developed his theory by combining studies of the brain with research on the contextual aspects of intelligence. So far, he has identified eight different types of intelligence: logical-mathematical, linguistic, visual-spatial, body-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. Schools usually concentrate on the realms of logical-mathematical and linguistic intelligence. Traditional IQ tests and most other standardized tests also measure these two types of intelligence exclusively. However, this may be beginning to change as teachers become interested in Gardner's theory and attempt to weave all eight intelligences into their teaching.

n his book Outsmarting IQ: The Emerging Science of Learnable Intelligence, David Perkins synthesizes much of the research and theories of intelligence and groups them into three strands. Neural intelligence is rooted in a biological system and determined by neural efficiency-the brain's physical processes. This is the most traditional view of intelligence. Experiential intelligence involves "know-how" or knowledge of typical patterns or situations. As a result, intelligence is a matter of experience with thinking in particular contexts. Reflective intelligence is based on knowledge of thinking strategies-knowing how to think, how to monitor one's thinking, and how to persist. Perkins suggests that instead of choosing one, all three strands contribute to intelligent behavior.

The concept of intelligence is fluid, multidimensional and evolving. Intelligence is not a single quality, there cannot be a single definition of it. Schools and society as a whole must become more specific about identifying abilities and areas of strength rather than giving people generic labels. Intelligence is not static and can be learned. There must be an open system for providing curriculum and instruction appropriate to students' needs, rather than a closed system of labeling and self-contained programs, as well as a corresponding society-wide effort to encourage people with different types of intelligence to feel "smart" and succeed.


So there :p

DJ Biscuit
24-12-2003, 15:05
And your point is?

moscowmail
24-12-2003, 15:06
OK, maybe I shoul dput it another way, how do we define inteligence???? my theory is:

I would like to propose a mathematical logical definition of intelligence and then a hypothesis that 1)all known forms or manifestations of intelligence fit into one of five broad categories and 2) all of five manifestation can be modeled and analyzed in terms of the proposed mathematical/logical definition of intelligence". I present here only the broad outlines of the proposal, but I am prepared to provide additional details.

MATHATICAL/LOGICAL DEFINITION OF INTELLIGENCE
The term multiple decision point maze refers to a type of logical problem. To successfully solve the problem or complete the maze, it is necessary to select the appropriate option at each decision point. Solving the maze requires information. Three types or sources of information can be used to solve the problem. These are 1)pre-existing information (information available before entering the maze), 2. environmental information (the correct option can be determined from information available in the maze) and 3. Other or information created by intelligence. In terms of the multiple decision point maze, "Intelligence" is defined as the process or force which creates the information needed to solve a maze problem where the required information was neither pre-existing nor available from the environment.

The terminology used here may be unconventional, but the logic underlying this mathematical definition of intelligence is not new. The mathematical/logical process or force which creates information has in fact been known (under different terminology) for a long time. What is new here, I believe, is the claim that this definition can be used to model and analyze all known forms of intelligence as observed in nature.

MANIFESTATIONS OF INTELLIGENCE IN THE REAL WORLD
I propose as a hypothesis that 1)there are manifestations of intelligence in the real world that meet the above mathematical/logical definition of intelligence, and 2)all known or inferred manifestations on earth come under one the five following broad headings:

1. HUMAN INTELLIGENCE- Human intelligence is not strictly limited to humans, but the label human is used because this type of manifestation of intelligence is so highly developed in humans. I can, I believe, demonstrate that observed occurrences of human intelligence fit the above mathematical definition of intelligence.

2. ARTIFICIAL OR MACHINE INTELLIGENCE- It can be demonstrated that mechanical or artificial forms of intelligence are logically possible.

3. NERVOUS SYSTEM INTELLIGENCE- It can be demonstrated that nervous systems create information in the manner suggested by the above mathematical definition of intelligence. What is interesting, is that the physical mechanics of nervous system intelligence are different from the physical mechanics of what is called human intelligence.

4. GENOMIC OR CELL INTELLIGENCE- It can be demonstrated that cells and groups of cells create information and exhibit intelligence of the type defined above. This demonstration appears to confirm or support the claim that intelligence plays a role in the design of life forms.

5. PRE-GENOMIC INTELLIGENCE- It can reasonably be inferred that there must have existed some form of pre-genomic intelligence which created or designed genomic intelligence. While I believe it would be possible to develop a model of how such an intelligence would have worked, I have not addressed the issue. It is interesting that no current manifestations of this type of intelligence have been discovered and/or recognized.

I would appreciate any comments on the above definition and hypothesis.

Maybe that is to tough old chap, how abou this:

The Definition Of Intelligence


Two men were digging a ditch on a very hot day. One said to the other, "Why are we down in this hole digging a ditch when our boss is standing up there in the shade of a tree?"

"I don't know," responded the other. "I'll ask him." So he climbed out of the hole and went to his boss. "Why are we digging in the hot sun while you're standing in the shade?"

"Intelligence," the boss said.

"What do you mean?"

The boss said, "Well, I'll show you. I'll put my hand on this tree and I want you to hit it with your fist as hard as you can."

The ditch digger took a mighty swing and tried to hit the boss' hand. The boss removed his hand and the ditch digger hit the tree, immediately clutching his hand in agaony. The boss said, "That's intelligence!"

The ditch digger went back to his hole, still in pain. His friend asked, "What did he say?"

"He said we are down here because of intelligence."

"What's intelligence?" said the friend.

The ditch digger put his hand on his face and said, "Take your shovel and hit my hand."

Sadie,
As if my point of view mattered. I voted for the book as well.

Intelligent, get's his point across quickly and like I said earlier in the thread He can go from smart to smart ass real quick and this is a hard thing to balance. You either have it or you don't. I for one am just a smart ass but damn proud of it. Kniga is also respectful of others in which case we could all learn from him but we will probably not. Such are the joys of age.

Everyone on my list I thought very highly of regardless. I especially admire Intourist for getting himself added and apologise to those I left off as my intent was not to insult, just challenge. That said, here are the rest. You had to ask?

1. Dave UK: Generally an intelligent poster and a good heart. I give points for not being a rude bastard like some of us.

2. Sadie: You have the ability to cut people to the quick and are very agressive. Good attributes for life in general. I think that you have a sweet side that we or I have not seen. I enjoy your post's.

3. J.D.: His posts are generally quite witty but like myself a smart ass.

4. D.J.: I am very surprised that he did not have more fans out there as he is always entertaining and a quick wit.

5. Murbanski: I know he is out there, run off by the masses awhile back. He is a good man, I am trying to get him to return.

6. Geneven: Another well informed guy.

7. Kshisya: Everyone seems to like her. She is very quick witted and a better smart ass than I can ever or will ever be. Her attachments make me blush.

8. SFJohns67: The guy hails from trailer trash and he admits it. I love self depricating humour. He could be a comedian in Alabama.

9. Punch: I do not understand this guy in the least. He is unpredictable, rude at times but always entertaining.

I am sure this is more than what you wanted but I had some fun with it. Of course I welcome the same treatment from the massess.

C
