Ok so chewing gum is not an issue here in Singapore however they have no issues with sniffing here and they refuse to use a handkerchief/tissue so getting that on a conference call can really curl your toes.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
That's just it though. I love people. It's just some people in IT or the "office life" have like zero freaking clue. You say "piss off" and they think "nah, let's stalk this guy and get in his space." Cuz ya know, that's how friend are made.
I presume there won't be any answers under 110 in a place for coders !
Also, I want to know if Im clever enough to do something really important at computers!( e.g working at intel,finding zero day exploits etc )..of course I know fluid intelligence is not the only factor...but it surely plays a major role!
So...my Intelligence Quotient is from 128 to 145(different tests,different results...most accurate was at~130 I think)
Is that good enough for what I want?
And what's yours?
Random fact: guitars with floyd rose tremolo system (floating tremolo)have less sustain than those with a fixed bridge since there is much energy lost on the bridge..sustain also varies by the wood used,distance between string and fretboard and material used at the end of the strings...who knows...maybe a stranger will call you and say "if you tell me a disadvantage of floating tremolo system i will give you 1.000.000€
This is what they won't tell you in academia land... measuring IQ is extremely subjective. And there are many types of intelligence that IQ simply does not measure. It's basically a number for geeks to geek out on much like how guys compare bench press.
Anyway, I have a genius level IQ that's like almost 200 (or did), but years of stress made that drop like a rock. And believe me I sure can be stupid at times. I'm sure I could climb it back up if I really wanted to. So could you. It only measures analytic intelligence where the prerequisite is some formal knowledge in XYZ despite the claims otherwise. The more you program the better your brain will learn to analyze and thus your IQ will go up, assuming stress doesn't kill you.
The more you get older, the more you learn (from experiences).
Which is what I've learned. Book smarts are great to serve as a foundation to build on, but that itself is not the whole picture. Experience is the true teacher in life. It's one thing to recite a book, it's a whole other to know from firsthand experience.
Some of the folks what would test low on an IQ test are usually happy and smiling and have no social qualms. So who's really the smart ones?
Before, I always say that the 'smart ones' don't exist for I know that everyone has their dumb side.
But now that I have a different perspective about 'smart ones', I can say that they are the ones who enjoy their life to the fullest despite the fact that they are not genius nor rich.
Don't mind those people who say you're not HOT. At least you know you're COOL.

But now that I have a different perspective about 'smart ones'
I agree. And I'd add to that knowing yourself as a person to know which new experiences would make you happy. If you're a nerd, be the best damn experienced nerd ever. If you're a bad influence, well be the best damn experienced bad influence ever. Living up to your potential whatever it may be is smart in my book.
So, if I am a bummer, then I've been the best experienced bummer ever, I'm entitled to be called a 'smart one'?
I suppose there's some clueless guy (ie, sucker) you could bum off of to make him happy. Then you're happy. He's happy. Win-win. I mean you may have to massage his feet on occasion, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
An IQ test is a useless indicator of intelligence, and has no relevance at all when it comes to your suitability for a job.
Your random fact is not always true. Sustain, in a guitar, is a complex set of interacting elements and is much more affected by things such as the wood used in the body. I would put the sustain in my 777 Universe up against the sustain in my Brian May any time - the 777 pretty much sustains all on its own.
More people need to realize it's a load of fluff. I've learned a lot from people that would have a low IQ. Turns out another way of looking at analysis is over thinking. Over thinkers never get that far in life. So much for a high IQ. Take that mensa!!
Firstly ..YOU LOVE VAI TOO !! *high five*(you have to really like a player to buy a 7stringed signature model otherwise schecter,strictly 7 or musicman would be a better choise..not for me I love Ibanez) now...sustain is always reduced when you install a floyd rose.Ibanez has those steel balls on their good ones to limit energy loss.
I never said the floyd is the major sustain-eater. For me it's more the 'height' of the strings..but when you set them too high the organ becomes unplayable!
...isn't the neck join much uncomfortable when shredding in high frets?
I have an RGT42 which is neck through (t stand for through I guess) an,apart from giving good sustain with extremely low action it does not in any way obstruct my fingers when playing in gigh frets...that's why Im afraid to buy a bolt-on guitar...it will feel like a cello !
An IQ can't tell whether you are good to code (or any other stuff you have mentioned). Go and figure it out yourself.
You can start with the C# Tutorials[^] provided by the MSDN.
You will ned VS EXpress[^] installed.
If you encounter any problems, double-check whether you have any spelling mistakes, etc., Google for the error text, and once you did all that, and only then, you can ask us in the C# Forum[^].
And please stop adding the random facts, it seems childish.
I will never again mention that Dalek Dave was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel.
Got that habbit from school tests on religion,ancient greek and other useless stuff where I had nothing to write...got a 18/20 once for giving some good locations for vacation
I know it's childish but I wont stop it even if they put me in a mental clinic for it ! Oh wait
You know how, when you lose your virginity, somebody just has to ask "was it good for you?" ? Well, that's what your question is like. If you have to ask, then you know it's not. Ah. I guess I just answered my question.
