re: Empirical evidence AGAINST intellectualism; ie The experts are generally dumber. (Long) - ShortyRob
[quote]But it'd be a mistake to assume that the general alternative to these hedgehogs is a large pool of foxes. If you read the description of foxes in your link, you'll probably rightly conclude that most people who aren't "intellectuals" are not foxes. They're just dumbasses. [/quote] Well o...

re: Empirical evidence AGAINST intellectualism; ie The experts are generally dumber. (Long) - ShortyRob
What's funny to me is that all of this is easily predicable AND, has actually been less formally studied repeatedly. It's why even some scientists have used relatively laymen groups to look at problems that seem intractable. I mean hell. Sayings like, "when you're a hammer, everything looks ...

re: This was GRRM's ending. - ShortyRob
[quote]Martin better give Bran a more fleshed out story that is more than glorified bait and a confirmation of Jon's birth. The books built up his character to actually be really important, once the show took over, they undid all of it. [/quote] I wonder if this was influenced by the fact that i...

re: GoT S8E6: The Iron Throne - ShortyRob
Obvious holes for no reason 1. Night's King, if killed, destroys his whole Army. Has an army that can constantly be replenished. Exposes himself to enemy(if the dude wasn't completely retarded, people shouldn't even know what he looks like) 2. Um, there's a hole in the fricking wall. I think th...

re: GoT S8E6: The Iron Throne - ShortyRob
[quote]Because the show runners are fricking idiots. That’s why. [/quote]And I get that there are fans saying, "but there may still be WW out there"............but from the perspective of EVERY character in the show, there aren't. Oh, and what's the point of a Night's Watch even if there ARE WW ...

re: GoT S8E6: The Iron Throne - ShortyRob
[quote]yeah... would've at least given a reason for there to still be a Night's Watch [/quote]Exactly. WTF was that? Night's watch has no purpose. Oh, and I'm sure it's been mentioned in 41 pages, but when, in fricking 7 seasons and 5 episodes have we EVER had any indication that Tyrian gave...
