Do People with 140 IQ See Normal People (IQ 90 to 110) as Stupid?

This is my answer to this question that was asked in the IQ section of Quora. I must say that I really love that they have an IQ section over there. You are not really allowed to talk about IQ at all in US society, and you are not allowed to write about it either, especially if you are writing about yourself. It is seen as bragging. However, society more or less allows or even cheers on bragging about all sorts of other things, so I think the hatred of IQ-talk and the labeling it as bragging is just sour grapes coming from people whose IQ’s are not that high. Also the US is a very anti-intellectual country, and we have always been that way.

Personally I am dubious about how good it is to have a very high IQ, as it seems to have as many drawbacks as benefits. Actually I would question whether it is even a good thing at all. It often seems like more of a bad thing. I like the idea that it is a bad thing because that means that you can’t brag about it no matter how much you talk about it. It’s like bragging about being poor or fat.

On the positive side, a very high IQ is a talent. There are many talents – Mechanical, artistic, athletic, musical, mathematical, social, thesbian, literary, photographic. It goes on and on. There are people who are great fishermen and hunters. And when it comes to acquired talents like the last two, the possibilities are endless. I have great admiration for handymen  who can fix anything and shade tree mechanics. I am always in awe of these people. I have tremendous admiration for anyone who can show me that they are very good at just about anything because it’s never easy to be an expert in anything.

Anyway, Quora is so cool because it is one of he few places anywhere in life where I can actually talk about IQ! You can read and talk about IQ all you want to on there, and no one will accuse you of being a social retard or bragging. I love it!

The original question was Do People with 140 IQ See Normal People (IQ 100 to 130) as Stupid?, which is a rather dumb question. First of all, normal IQ is 90-110, not 100-130. 120-130 is considered bright, and even 110-120 is called high normal. 130 is getting very close to gifted, and maybe ~5% of the population has an IQ of at least 130. Also it should have been phrased 140+ instead of just 140.

I do not see people with normal IQ’s as stupid. However, to me a lot of them are simply not very interesting. That being said, the two best friends I ever had in life both probably had IQ’s of ~100, and I got along with both of them immaculately. However, there were surely things that I could not discuss with them. We mostly just joked and talked about rock music, drugs and women. That’s really all there is to life anyway, right? Sex and drugs and rock and roll?

Around here we have a lot of Mexicans. Their average IQ is ~90. The average Mexican does not strike me as stupid at all.

However, there are some who seem less intelligent than the others. I assume that their IQ’s are in the 80’s. I see some of those lower IQ working class Mexican men in stores sometimes, and they almost seem like retarded people. I know they are not retarded at all, but from my POV, they seem that way. Perhaps a ~100 IQ person would be more likely to see them as more normal than I do?

I worked for a local Indian tribe for a while. I remember that I used to get frustrated with the leadership because they seemed to make what appeared to me to be stupid decisions. It was very frustrating to sit back and watch higher ups make one dumb decision after another and not be able to do anything about it. I would imagine that those Indians had average IQ’s of ~87.

The answers to this question on Quora were mostly dumb and probably disingenuous. Most of the very high IQ people on there answered by saying that they did not find people of normal intelligence to be stupid at all. However, I think they were lying, and genius IQ types do find normal IQ people to be stupid at times. At times. Not all the time. I work very hard to avoid feeling that way because it makes me uncomfortable to think that way about the majority of my fellow humans are idiots.

My answer is below. Free to comment.

I will be completely honest here. I do find most people to be idiots, but I don’t necessarily break it down by IQ, mostly because I do not know most people’s IQ’s. What bothers me about humanity in general and causes me to think that most people are morons is that most people seem to me to lack wisdom.

However, this does include thinking emotionally rather than logically, and I have to admit that lower intelligence people are more likely to think emotionally than logically. Yet the number of highly intelligent people (IQ 140–150) I know who also think emotionally instead of logically is quite high. It seems that most people period simply cannot get out of the trap of thinking emotionally and therefore illogically about things regardless of intelligence level.

But as you get up the IQ scale, you will find more and more people who value logical thinking and disparage emotional and illogical thinking, and yes, they do tend to think that the average person thinks with their heart and not their head and therefore gets the wrong answer.

I do resent being misunderstood, and lower intelligence people tend to misunderstand me more and not get the joke and/or allusive comment and therefore think that I am weird, crazy, dangerous, or maybe all three. I don’t like that, but I guess they can’t help it. If people don’t understand something, they think it is weird, crazy and scary, so if they don’t understand someone, they think that person is weird, scary or crazy. That’s a dumb way to think, but that’s just how people are.

I could care less about their IQ score or how well they did in school. I don’t care whether they know a lot or a little. Hopefully, none of that would make me dislike another human.

But I do fault people for lacking wisdom because to me, most humans ought be able to figure things out enough to arrive at the wise or wiser answer or decision and to reject all the less wise answers or decisions.

The problem really is society. Society fills your head with lies, not only lies but stupid and dangerous lies. Most people conform to society, so they simply incorporate all of society’s lies, even the stupid and dangerous ones. You can’t really fault them for that because people want to be accepted, and a good way to be accepted is to accept all of society’s lies and go along with them.

If you start rejecting society’s lies, you will probably be rejected by most people, and you will always be getting into arguments and fights with people if you challenge them when they spout off the Society Lie Du Jour.

Can you blame people for taking the easy way out?

I do think the people who believe society’s BS actually cause a lot of damage to society and even to people like me. They are always passing judgement on others for silly and crazy reasons, and that makes the world a less fun place to live in.

So if you want to be my friend and not have me resent you, it’s pretty easy. Just be wise, and don’t be unwise! How hard is that? Come on, you can do it. I know you can.

Why Race Deniers Worrying about Race Realism Makes No Sense

Ultra Cool writes:

Only a very tiny fraction of people care about racial IQ and at least 95% of them are Nazis, this is why I agree HBD will never be relevant in any country.

A lot of Blacks and liberals are on a jihad against race realism. Their attitude seems to be that it is the enemy that must be destroyed because if it ever catches on, it will be bad news for Blacks and some other minorities. Problem with this theory? It’s never going to catch on. Perhaps it will, but I will take bets that it will never catch on in my lifetime. We won’t see this becoming popular in the next 30 years.

I know this because I talk to people about it sometimes. Guess what? No one cares. No One Cares. No. One. Cares. Do I have to spell it out for you?

And a lot of people are out and out offended by the very notion.

It’s even worse than that. No one cares about IQ either, which is the ledge on which this whole argument teeters. Take IQ Roadrunner out of the argument, and the theory falls off the ledge like the Coyote in those cartoons. If no one cares about IQ, why would anyone care about IQ discrepancies between the races?

I got some news for everyone. Most people are not that smart. As George Carlin said:

Now, the average IQ is 100. Now, think about how stupid your average person is. Ok, now think about this. Half the population is even dumber than that!

Exactly.

Truth is that the only people who like to talk about IQ are those who have high IQ’s, and even many of them do not like to talk about it.

It’s more or less a poison subject in Normie Society. There are lot of reasons for this, but the main reason is anti-intellectualism in America and the fact that when it comes to IQ, most people don’t have very high ones. Normies hate to talk about IQ. If you want offend a Normie, say the word “IQ”. The conversation will probably end right there.

Most people don’t even believe in the concept of IQ. This is especially true if they are PC SJW’s who came out of the university system where the very subject of IQ is dramatically disparaged by SJW professors. Now the truth is that that right there is nearly educational malpractice, but if you had to hold professors to educational malpractice, you would have to shut down every university in the land because they are all teaching SJW Theory as truth, and SJW Theory is nothing but lies.

A high normal university graduate will start to recite the usual BS about IQ if you dare to bring up the subject.

  • IQ doesn’t matter.
  • IQ doesn’t measure intelligence.
  • IQ measures book leaning.
  • IQ measures you well you take IQ tests.

And all the rest of the bullshit.

When it comes to IQ, your average person, even your average college grad and certainly your average writer in the MSM, is far behind the consensus of the psychometric community.

So:

  • If you don’t have a very high IQ, you hate the whole subject of IQ with a passion.
  • Most people don’t have a very high IQ.
  • Most people hate the whole subject of IQ with a passion.

It then follows that:

  • If most people hate the very subject of IQ with a passion,
  • Then any theory based on IQ will fail to be accepted by the public, or worse, will not even be listened to by the public, or worst of all, will be rejected by the public with hostility.

Max Nordau, “Degeneration”

Max Nordau was an early Zionist proponent in Europe. What is disturbing though is that like many other early Zionists, he was also a proto-fascist. Of course nationalism in general and in particular ethnic nationalism is typically associated with fascism more than most nationalists would like to admit. In fact, one definition of fascism is that it is simply ultranationalism.

Nordau wrote in the early 1900’s, and at this time, he wrote a book called Degeneration. A lot of people dislike this book because they think it is fascist, and possibly it is.

However, it is still probably a good book with interesting parallels to our modern predicament. In fact, Nordau and especially his book are eerily prescient of the Alternative Right and also of our society itself today. What Nordau was complaining about was exactly the sort of society that the Cultural Left has created, which is of course the very thing that the Alt Left is the backlash against.

I am also thinking of Oswald Spengler’s seminal book, The Decline of the West, which ought to be put on your must read list. Spengler’s modern day avatar, the pseudonymous “Spengler” who wrote for Asia Times, also comes to mind. I also think of James Kuntsler, who you folks really need to read if you are interested in this sort of thing. It appears that Max Nordau was born too soon. This book looks like an interesting read.

I found this short review of the book on the Net. I do not necessarily agree with this review. In particular, there is a type of anti-Semitism here which I find disturbing and unpalatable. But it is interesting how much Nordau’s book resembles the Alt Right of today. That is what I am getting at here; I am not promoting either Nordau’s or this reviewer’s views.

Early Zionist Max Nordau’s Degeneration is an important and insightful book yet not for reasons most would assume. Nordau describes “degenerate” artists as antisocial individuals that lack the normal social traits of his race. The degenerate will dress absurdly just to get a rise out of his kinfolk and lacks the self-control to conduct his behavior in a normal healthy way.

Funny thing is all of this was stated by one of the co-founders (with Modern day Zionist founder Theodor Herzl) of the World Zionist Organization, a movement set out to return the Jews to the mythical heroism of King David’s Kingdom. Back during Nordau’s day, only a small minority of Jews were Zionists. As the brilliant Otto Weininger once stated of Zionism, it “is the negation of Judaism, because it seeks to ennoble what cannot be ennobled. Whereas Judaism stands for the world dispersion of Jews, Zionism strives for their ingathering.” It seems Nordau was doing nothing more but projecting his own newfound cultural degeneracy onto brilliant Europeans minds such as Tolstoy, Wagner, and Nietzsche.

If one were to utilize Nordau’s theories for the modern day, it is apparent that all modern-day institutions now advocate and legally enforce degeneration on their victimized citizenry. This cultural degeneracy  virtually engulfs every aspect of American society: Gender, Race, Sex, Literacy, The Arts, Film, Education, Philosophy, etc. etc.

First World countries now flood their nations with uneducated, unassimilable, and hostile (especially towards the indigenous populations) third world aliens, which academia and the internationalist “Western” media describes as “progress” (despite all evidence towards the contrary). By Nordau’s standards, multiculturalism would be at the pinnacle of cultural degeneracy, a sign of a very sick, confused, and distorted racial collective.

Funny, how the same people that promote Zionism (NeoCONS for example), also endorse the bulldozing of all National borders (except for Israel of course, those borders are expanding) and organic cultures. We live in a world where “Whites” now feebly imitate other races, and it’s considered the height of American culture. Whether it is some white trash wigger like Eminem (Western music is known for it’s complex melodies – RAP has no melody at all) or a world class whore like Lady Gaga (who is weird for weird’s sake), the traits of cultural degeneration are more than obvious.

The claims that Nordau makes against Nietzsche and Wagner are minor compared to what passes off as “art” nowadays. Degeneration is a book that truly puts things in perspective, showing how a certain secular Zionist movement is consciously subverting every aspect of Western culture to its own advantage.

If a degenerate is a racially deracinated individual, that would make Karl Marx (if one were to consider him a German) the biggest degenerate of all. Of course, Marx as no doubt conscious of the fact that he was promoting the destruction of all aristocracies, nations, cultures, and Western civilization with his fundamentally anti-Western theories (a legacy in which Freud, Boas, and Einstein would continue).

After all, Karl Marx (like Lenin) was a failed bourgeois who mostly lived off the generosity of others which included Engels, so if you can’t join them, you might as well destroy them. Of course, Max Nordau makes no mention of Marx in all of Degeneration. Innovating atheist philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer is routinely criticized as a top degenerate.

We now live in a world of complete intellectual abstraction and anti-kultur/anti-organic internationalism. Degeneration was written at a time when the world had yet to be “globalized,” and most Europeans/Americans actually felt proud of their nationality (and back then, they could). Their nations were still producing great art movements, philosophers, writers, and other cultural producers. Now we live in a world of intentionally stupid (and soulless) media/Hollywood, junk/fast food, hyper-consumerism, pseudo-individualism, and other related societal ills that are propagated by an international plutocracy willing to do anything for an extra buck.

When read and put in context with the changing times (both past and present), Degeneration makes for an enlightening read.

“The Only Thing I Hate More Than Communists Are Anti-Communists”

First of all, I want to say that I agree somewhat with a famous Russian dissident who said, “The only people I hate more than Communists are anti-Communists.”

Sure, Communism has some issues to be sure, and I’m not exactly a Leninist myself. But however bad Communists are, anti-Communists are so much worse. By anti-Communism I do not mean reasonable people who simply feel that Communism is a lousy idea. I mean the anti-Communist fanatics, most of whom are about as insane as any other fanatic. Anti-Communists lie, and they are crazy. Most of what they say about Communism is nothing but lies. Communism has a pretty serious downside, and you would think they could limit themselves to the facts and still make their case, but no, they have to lie like all ideologues. First of all, truly socialist or Left anti-Communists are not common. I do not mind such folks myself. You would be interested to know that most of the Cuban dissident groups (last time I checked there were 250 different groups) are actually socialists, albeit social democrats. Socialist anti-Communists are fairly common in places like the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany and honestly most of Europe nowadays. Most of Europe has been socialist for a long time now, but it is a ty0pe of socialism (social democracy) that is pretty hostile to Communism.

The nutcases in Europe are the psychos who run the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization (NATO), most people in the Baltics, far too many East Europeans, way too many Finns and the entire political caste of the UK, where there has not been any Left since Tony Blair destroyed it in the 1990’s. The NATO maniacs are actually fascists and they have long had links to Nazi and fascist organizations all over Europe.NATO set u the Gladio Network or Stay Behind Network which was supposed to conduct guerrilla war in case of a Soviet takeover of Western Europe. Unfortunately almost everyone in Gladio was either a fascist or an out and out Nazi. During the Cold War, the Gladio Network was not somnolent but was actually active. They carried out assassinations all over Europe for decades and in Italy they set off many false flag bombings which they blamed on the Left during the Strategy of Tension. The US, NATO and the CIA were up to their necks in all of this insanity.

The US-backed Nazi government in Ukraine is based on the Gladio Network in that region.

Anti-Communists are almost always rightwingers, and they are some of the worst, that is murderous, rightwingers of all. And they have a curious definition of Communist. You raised the minimum wage? You are a Communist who needs to be removed in a coup or shot, and the CIA will help us do just that. You a member of a labor union? You are a Communist who needs to be killed. Are you anyone who is leftwing in any way? You are a Communist. Everyone on the Left from the wimpiest reformist to the guerrilla with an AK-47 is a Communist who needs to be killed.

Anti-Communists are truly the worst. And the tragic and enraging part is that anti-Communists have been running the US state via the Deep State since World War 2, and since World War 2, US culture has been based on the same insane anti-Communist philosophy as the ideologues. The true religion of America after 1945 was Anti-Communism.

On Normies

Gay State Girl: Have you ever been in such a position?

When you are incapable of measuring up, seemingly inferior in every which way, you have no means by which to compete, it’s satisfying to find others in a weaker position. Some take pleasure in degrading the weakest links. I’m not excusing this mindset. Just trying to provide an explanation. It’s akin to having a Napoleon complex. Not everyone can overcome a rough childhood.

It’s easy to say “I don’t want anyone else to go through what I did” but more difficult to feel it.

Jason Y: Well, we’re all human, but too much of the “little man complex” is unhealthy and destructive.

Yeah, of course, I’ve also been in the position of being the misfit.

I generally despise conformists. My brother is like that. He always does what the crowd wants. He wears the right clothes, the right hairstyle, and goes a long with whatever is cool, even if it’s morally and ethically repulsive.

The incel crowd hates those conformists. It’s not so much the clothes styles, etc. but that whole going along with society mindset. They call them “normalfags” or “normies,” and they absolutely hate them. Since I have a few gay commenters on here who I really like, I am going to call these people normies instead of normalfags. I despise normies. They’ve been calling me weird for so long. I have also experienced a ton of rejection from these idiots, although I suppose I had the bright spot unlike you two of also having a ton of success to go along with that.

They also go along with all of those crazy social rules regarding behavior, conversation, banned subjects, things never to be discussed, etc. I like to say that they have a list of a billion things that you are never supposed to talk about or discuss or bring up, including a lot of things that honestly ought to be talked about. I have found that the one thing normies hate more than anything else is truth.

Instead of telling the truth, they just make all of these weird subtle comments, hints, jokes and looks. You are supposed to pick up on all of this coded stuff. I am pretty good socially and very good at reading people, so I can usually decode all this stuff, but it pisses me off that they can’t just come out and say it. I like the truth, and I come right out and say it a lot, and that drives normies insane. Supposedly that is one of the ways I am “weird.”

Now I realize that there are quite a few things that are better left unsaid, but on the other hand, normies take this to an insane extreme where there are so many “never to be spoken of” things that all there is left to do is maybe talk about the weather.

And at least some of the time, coming out and telling the flat out truth is the best thing to do, especially in relationships. At some point, it is best to say, “Look I am tired of all the weird subtle hints, jokes, expressions and figures of speech. Let’s just get this out in the open right now. This is a very important thing to discuss. If  you want to be my friend, there are some things that I require of people and some things that you are just not allowed to do.” And then just get it out the damned open and deal with it!

The main thing is that normies always do all of the things that society tells or actually orders you to do. If you don’t do those things that you are supposed to do, they reject you really hard, and it’s utterly brutal. This goes on far into adulthood too. One of the lies about American culture is that it is individualistic and not conforming. Well maybe it is individualistic in terms of radical individualism or libertarian political thinking, but that’s not even a good thing.

And US culture is far more conforming than you would ever think. I have even heard that some European cultures might be less conforming than US culture at this point. US corporate culture is insanely conforming. I have a strong feeling that even in those groovy new IT companies like Google and Apple that that corporate culture is far more conforming than you would ever think. And if you don’t go along and be a normie, they are probably going to fire your ass.

Normies fire people all the time, especially for being “weird,” which is code for not being a normie. I have been dealing with this my whole life.

I am a very good worker, work very hard, am on time or even early (often 15 minutes early), and I even stay late a  lot of the time. I traditionally have hardly ever taken a sick day. I don’t screw off or slack off and always give it my all. I am also very responsible. But I have been fired a lot in my life not because I am a lousy worker but in general just because the boss simply did not like me! Often they started out liking me but started hating me over time. It seemed I was powerless to change this. I have gotten far better at this over the years to the point where I can last up 2-3 years a job without getting fired, which is pretty good.

I haven’t the faintest clue about what to do about this except that over time I have concluded that I probably should just not work for or with other people. I probably just need to work for myself. Which is exactly what I am doing at this point in my life. I have heard that a lot of other very high IQ people cannot work with or for other people either, and quite a few them are best working for themselves.

I am so sick and tired of being called “weird” by these assholes that I almost want to embrace it and just say, “Yeah, I’m weird, and what I hate are normal people. I only like weird people. The weirder the better.” You know, if you can’t beat em, join em.

“The Kinder, Gentler Version of Bull Riding,” by Alpha Unit

Little Yellow Jacket was a famous Brangus bull – a Brangus being a cross between an Angus and a Brahman. He had one horn pointing up and the other pointing down. The Professional Bull Riders organization made him “Bull of the Year” three different times. That’s a record.

He was in good company as Bull of the Year. There was Mossy Oak Mudslinger. And Chicken on a Chain. There were Panhandle Slim, Cripple Creek’s Promise Land, Code Blue, and Dillinger. But nobody was as notorious as the 1,800-pound “World’s Most Dangerous Bull.” That was Bodacious.

Bodacious first appeared on the circuit in 1992. In no time he was found to be virtually unrideable. According to the ProRodeo Hall of Fame:

All muscle, the bull with the distinctive yellow coloring bucked off 127 of his 135 riders and became known for a bone-crushing style that sent many riders to the hospital, including world champions Tuff Hedeman and Terry Don West. Bodacious was known for his explosive exit out of the chute…His ability to buck riders off before they could nod their heads did not endear him to the cowboys.

The way he came out of the chute was bad enough. But what really made Bodacious so fearsome was his signature move: he would raise his rear end, his head to the ground, causing the rider to shift his weight forward. He would then jerk his head up and smash the rider in the face.

Tuff Hedeman, one of the few riders who ever stayed on Bodacious, had an infamous meeting with Bodacious in 1995 during the Professional Bull Riders World Finals in Las Vegas. A mere second after exiting the chute, Bodacious jerked Hedeman down and head-butted him, shattering every bone in his face below the eyes. It took 13 hours of reconstructive surgery and five titanium plates to repair the damage. Hedeman told reporter Burkhard Bilger that his sense of smell and taste never returned.

That same year in the National Finals Rodeo, Scott Breding chose to wear a hockey mask for his ride on Bodacious. He needed more than that. Bodacious head-butted him and knocked him out, breaking his nose and bursting one of his eye sockets.

The next day Bodacious was retired from rodeo.

If bull-riding is more thrill than you can handle, no problem. Not everyone can take on the likes of Little Yellow Jacket, but just about anyone can pretend to. Plenty of bars have mechanical bulls for their patrons. You can even rent your own mechanical bull for a birthday party, graduation, or other festive occasion.

Or go to the county fair. All over the United States during the summer you can find enterprising men and women who announce “Have Bull, Will Travel.” Like Jerry and Kathy Boone of New Plymouth, Idaho, who carry their mechanical bull, Samson, to county fairs and rodeos throughout the region. Or Cal Perkins, who makes mechanical bulls right here in the US and whose bulls are found in all 50 states and a handful of other countries.

Cal Perkins was a professional bull rider in the late 1970s and early 1980s but quit the circuit when he and his wife decided to start a family. After his sons became interested in rodeo, he began building bucking machines. He now custom-builds mechanical bulls at his shop in the tiny town of Murtaugh in southern Idaho. He brands his creations “the world’s best bucking machines.” The Times-News of Idaho reports:

Perkins takes great pride in the realistic look of his bulls. Each machine is upholstered with cowhide from Brazil and a real bull’s head from Mexico. That’s one of the reasons his bulls are so popular, he said.

Perkins travels with two mechanical bulls, one a miniature bull created for the little ones; it will take a rider up to 180 pounds. The set-up for his regular mechanical bull, which includes a protective air-filled mat, is designed to protect a rider up to 250 pounds.

And what about the rider? What do I need to know before I get on a mechanical bull? Professional bull riding champions Shane Proctor and Luke Snyder offer a few tips to would-be mechanical bull riders, as reported by the Wall Street Journal.

  • “Have enough beer to drink so you can get your courage up.”
  • “Make sure to make really good friends with whoever is running the bull. It’s not like eight seconds with a real bull. If you piss off the ring guy, he can keep you on however long he likes.”
  • “Keep your chin down. Wherever your chin goes, that’s where your body is going to go.”
  • “Make sure your free hand is in front of you. It helps guide your direction.”
  • “Sit close to your hand holding the bull. It’s like a teeter-totter, so you want to establish your center of gravity. If you sit too far back, you will fall off.”
  • “Know you are going to wipe out, and know you are not going to look graceful, so have fun and just fall off.”

An Indian Shopkeeper Throws Me Out of a Store

SHI writes:

RL: So yes, there are some nice Indians around here, but there are also some horrid ones. At age 57, I was actually thrown out of a store by Indian. I have only been banned from one other store in my life, and I was let back in by management who fired one of the guys who banned me.

Sorry to hear about your experience, mate. Were they Punjabis?

Yes, he was a Punjabi. He had been freaking out because I “threw money down” when I went to buy things at the counter. But that’s just how people pay for things here in the US. You throw the money down, but not in a mean or rude way, more in a casual way. No one cares. I have been throwing money down like this my whole life, and not even one single human being anywhere in America has said even one word about it, so I seriously doubt if Americans care.

But one time, a Punjabi storekeeper got very mad at me for throwing money down, and I thought that was very weird. Then with the guy who banned me, I did it maybe 3-4 times. He got mad at me every time, and I kicked myself and kept telling myself to stop doing it, and I did manage to stop doing it with him a lot of the time.

But I kept forgetting because it is a lifelong habit, and I do it thoughtlessly like breathing. Telling me to not throw money down is like telling me not to walk or breathe.

About the 4th time I did it, he completely flipped out and threw me out of his store. Whether I am permabanned I have no idea, but anyone who throws me out of a store like that ensures that I will never come back.

Even Better Than #whitelivesmatter

How bout some nihilism?

#nolivesmatter

I like it already!

I came out of the punk rock movement where most of us had the attitude of, “Decline of Western Civilization? Cool! What can I do to help?”, so I’ve had a soft spot in my black heart for nihilism since my salad days.

Modern SJW culture is getting pretty damned nihilistic if you actually sit down and think about it. Who knows, maybe in 20 years, narodniks will be in style again. After all they killed the Czar, and that’s impressive.

Maybe we are already there. Nietzsche is the quintessential modernist. Who else can speak to our age? He said we were already trapped in a nihilistic black hole, and that was a hundred years ago.

Why else is Buddhism, the original nihilistic religion, so popular with hipsters these days?

What else could you call postmodernism but nihilism enshrined in the academy and intellectual? Derrida is Nietzsche updated to a new century. From there we move on to Lyotard and especially Baudrillard, and then it’s a hop and skip to Badiou and especially Brassier, the echoing voice in the darkness of the black hole of our time.

The art world was never far behind, or maybe even out in front.

Sade was scribbling in his dungeon a century before Nietzsche rocked the world.

While narodniks were throwing bombs, Turgenev and Chekhov were following them in the literature of the time.

From there we went to Dada, which is nihilistic or it is nothing at all, or perhaps it is both or neither, which all mean the same thing if you think about it.

Ayn Rand hated nihilism, which is funny considering that Objectivism is about as nihilistic as you can get. I mean come on. Religion is dead, so it obviously follows that God is too. No religion, no God. That’s not too hard to understand. Without God, there is nothing, and that is our postmodern predicament du jour. Sartre would call it a “dilemma.” It certainly creates a lot of angst. Look at all the people on psych meds.

Hilariously, the Objectivists look out at the world with their cold sociopathic dead shark eyes and call their evil ways a temple. “God may be dead, but it matters not,” they cheer. “For we have money, and in money we have more meaning than a thousand Gods!” Yeah. Let’s all go pray at the bank. Maybe they’ll give me a loan.

It’s such pitiful thinking until you realize probably half the US population are Randists. Then it becomes frightening, yet another dangerous popular delusion.

And no, money is not a substitute for meaning. All the meaning in my wallet and a $1.79 will get you a Slurpee at a 7-11.

Money is God! Surely you jest. But our Randists do not, and that’s scary. Serial killer scary.

Music was a bit late to the game, but as mentioned above, nihilism was Punk Rock’s middle name. Probably the Velvets were the incubators, and then the Pistols blew it up for the world to see. Punk is nihilistic to this day, assuming it’s not commodified yet.

Industrial, Black metal, death metal, and doom metal took the ex nihilo baton from punk and ran with it. Black Sabbath were the Velvets of metal. Metallica, Slayer, Alice in Chains, Ministry, Motorhead, Nine Inch Nails, Pantera and especially Marilyn Manson blazed a trail of destructive nothingness that rages to this moment.

Film was even later to game, but the movies always catch up to culture eventually. It’s a law, written in stone on Hollywood Boulevard. The Big Lebowski was the first step, and what is Fight Club but nihilistic? The Matrix and its sequel probably wrote the ultimate cinematic treatise on our modern disease. What’s with that hollowed out book in Thomas A. Anderson’s hand? And what’s Agent Smith ranting about anyway, or is he really just ranting about nothing?

More recently, the Joker in himself  in Dark Knight Rises is none other than the Agent of Chaos. With no love of money, he wants nothing to do with filthy lucre. He only wants to make everything burn. In the ultimate anti-Objectivist statement, he even burns a gigantic pile of money.

Most people troll on the Net, but some hardcores troll in real life. That’s called Trolling IRL. At the moment, that is exacting what Mr. Trump is doing – trolling IRL. That silly billionaire is trolling the whole damn world.

Some folks who troll IRL are harmless like Andy Kaufman, probably the finest IRL troller that ever lived.

Others who troll IRL are downright evil. I can’t help thinking that Adolf Hitler was trolling the world with his crazy philosophy. Unfortunately, this mad trolling IRL episode left 50 million bodies in its wake.

James Holmes was another evil IRL troller, though he was a mere piker next to Der Fuhrer. Nevertheless, this exemplary philosopher/man of action understood The Dark Knight movie at its essence. Hence he dressed up as the Joker and crashed a movie theater in Colorado, spraying the packed crowd with machine gun fire, trying to make the world burn in his own petty and failed way.

And our trajectory of nothingness, with all its bumps and lurches along the way, leads us here, to our modern nightmare. In the ultimate act of nihilism, a man dressed up as the Joker, the Agent of Chaos himself and raided a movie theater with a machine gun in a failed attempt to set the world aflame, in a nightmarish act of horrific violence utterly devoid of all meaning.

And here I leave you, dear reader, staring off into space, looking at nothing at all.

Have a good trip, if you can bear it.

Why I View the Cultural Left’s Extreme Promotion of Homoseual Sex with Alarm

There are two types of homosexual evangelization that American men are subjected to. The first is the normal evangelization of gay men. This has been noted in psychiatric studies of gay men all through the last century. If you go back through these reports, you will see that they report that homosexuals are often very evangelistic about the type of sex they have and spend a fair amount of time trying to recruits newbies to their sexual lifestyle. Thinking back on it, I think gay and bi men probably do this a lot more than lesbians or bi women, but then I do not know much about homosexual behavior in women.

The effects of gay men making passes at straight men as driver of societal degeneracy are much exaggerated, particularly by the wild homophobes on the Religious Right. As noted in other posts, many straight men, especially if they are goodlooking, spend decades of their lives fending off homosexuals. I’ve turned them down probably thousands of times. I lost track.

It’s not like by the 2,000th time I was worn down and ready to cave. After thousands of offers, I was no more likely to do it than after the first one at age 16. If anything, I am probably even more resolved.

I feel that people underestimate the level of homophobia among most American men. This high level of homophobia, which I feel is adaptive and pro-civilizational, is despised by the Cultural Left as “bigotry” or “mental illness,” while actually it is neither. Straight men simply normally tend to have a strong revulsion against this sort of thing. It’s a natural, normal and acceptable way to feel. It’s goes with the territory of being a straight man.

The level of homophobia is so extreme among American men that it seems like it would be hard to seduce them into homosexual behavior, especially as they get a bit older, as it is always easier to get younger people to try new things than it is to get older folks to do so.

Sometimes I wonder what exactly it would take to get a lot of straight men to do such a thing because they seem to dead-set against it.

As such, the religious Right’s fear of gay evangelization is rather overblown, but cultural evangelization is another matter altogether. This is why I am alarmed at the Cultural Left’s attempt to portray male homosexual sex like it’s the greatest new flavor of ice cream. Culture is incredibly powerful. Cultural changes are much more powerful than an army of gay men trying to fulfill their “straight guy fantasy.”

The Ronettes, “Be My Baby”

Ronettes live at the Big TNT Show, Hollywood, California, November 29, 1965. What a magical moment that was! How can it be that 50 years have gone by since this was recorded. Dig those hairdos too and the gyrating chicks in the background. Hippies weren’t quite here yet. It was Beatniks seguing into hippies around this time. The jerking and swaying miniskirts in the background is Beatnikism all the way. The Vietnam War had just been escalated dramatically. The Beatles were huge. The Rolling Stones, their darker twin, exploded in the background. LSD was still legal. What a Hell of a time to be alive.

That’s Ronnie Specter on lead vocals. There is something so special about this young woman. Veronica Bennett (Ronnie Specter) and her older sister Estelle on the left were mixed race – Irish, Black and Cherokee. It was the Black-Indian mix that gave them their exotic good looks. The other similar looking beauty, their cousin Nedra Talley, was Black, Cherokee and Puerto Rican – a similar racial mix, as she looks so much like the sisters that it is hard to tell them apart.

Here is the famous studio version, polished by the master, Phil Specter. Great music. Not sure about the hairdos though. Beehive hairdos anyone? The B-52’s were born too late.

The video is a series of snapshots from the era. Check out those hairdos! Check out those outfits! Go-go boots! Miniskirts!

More great Black musical artists. Will they ever end?

Racists say Blacks have never done one damn good thing for our country. Bull. What about music? Pull out the Blacks, and the whole thing unravels. The Blacks are that one special chord stringing it all together, from Gospel and Ragtime to Jazz to Blues to Rhythm and Blues to Rock and Roll to Motown to Hendrix to disco, the Blacks never stop playing and swaying.

What do White people have instead? Country music. Great, good job Whites.
