    Oh Well

    To tell the truth most of my education is self taught so no money backing or high brow collage to brag about but many times I can keep up with the best of them.

    My grades at high school were not brilliant.  It was said that I was intelligent but I was a rioter and got punished for that with bad grades for almost everything.  The lesson was that being nice was rewarded. At the university it was slightly different. ...

    A Fine Line

    Ever since I have been able to walk and talk my mind has been filled with questions and my mouth almost always running at full pace to ask them. That was of course till I became the local pariah for things outside my control and for a long time my mind was the only thing I had...

    Yes I Am Intellectual

    being born with Spina bifida, I have not been able to go out and experience the world like non-disabled people, so over my life I have sat and studied many many subjects, to the point many people can not keep up with me, but I realized this and for about half my life I have been...

    I Don't Really See Myself As An Intellectual. I Only Enjoy Thinking.

    Many people have called me an intellectual but frankly I don't see myself as such, because there are just so many things that I have yet to learn. Not only that, other people have admirable abilities that I could only hope to achieve and possess someday. As far as the intellect...
