Updated (with apologies to Mr. Larson):
It's the person who spends the most time talking to him- or herself. It's common knowledge that most people will address their remarks to the most intelligent person in the room.
Is this why I don't get many replies to some of my new thread posts?
Consider yourself lucky. Far too many of my threads receive no replies at all.
If I took this seriously my first initial answer is @agedhorse
Then I saw the comments, and realized I am not funny enough
Interesting how a lot of folks think of "smart" as meaning to having a lot of knowledge. To me being smart means having a high IQ (like moi ), but it is entirely possible to have a very high IQ and know nothing. On the other hand you can know a huge load of things without having a particularly high IQ. On balance it's probably more useful to know a lot of things than to be able to get a high score in an IQ test.
That brings to mind the time I just started working in the repair shop at a local music store chain (small local place)
The other amp/electronics repairman was an older guy who had been there a few years and was having a hard time keeping up with the amount of repairs and was completely lost on newer amps with DSP and SMT construction.
So a customer brought his tube amp back in AGAIN because it wasnt fixed. The repairman talked for a solid 5 minutes about the history and development of the tubes it used and all these technical specs. Smart guy, he knows a lot about tubes.
The customer cut him off in mid sentence and asked, "That's great and all, but do you know what's wrong with it? Can you fix it?!"
Repair guy just stared at him with a blank expression...
Customer was mad and went to storm out, but the store manager calmed him down. The other part time guy (who really was smart and could apply his knowledge) took a look and got it going. It was something kinda stupid like the coax cable for the reverb tank.
That older repairman was asked to find another job not long after that. Smart guy, didn't 'know' crap.
See, I think we all know the answer is @agedhorse ... but where's the fun in stating the obvious?
yea my seriousness level was very high when seeing this thread. I’ll recover shortly
Me, Like you, I fool people with my above average vocabulary. I’ve seen more than a few 95 centers posted on this board, so we are not alone.
Agreed. But, on the other hand, some "wave makers" (Hitler, Stalin, Castro, Sadam, etc.) don't push things forward, either. They just push. But that's a whole other thrilling thread.
Maybe I should have stated it the other way around. Saying precision basses are over rated might get you labeled the dumbest here on TB. TB is a pbass lover's lane. (Hint: I don't own a pbass.)
Since NOBODY got banned it must be me, because I married mrs. slo. That is the smartest thing I have done in my life. End of thread.
I woke up with the groove this morning after an intense “maintenance” session with the wife yesterday evening .. nothing better than picking up one of my P-basses and start funkin’ up .. am I smart enough? Who knows
"Stupidity is hereditary. Ignorance is a choice."
Can't help but notice the guy's not carrying a Precision bass.
I was actually waiting for someone to notice/point that out...
Took a while.
I was listening to the car radio when it was announced that the UK Chief Inspector of Schools stated that half of the schools were below average in performance and this needed to improve. I pulled the car over and thought about how long I still had to go in teaching before I could get away from these people.
I'm often told I'm bright...by guys that still have their hair.
That's the first person that came to my mind...and I still hold to it.
