Everdarkgreen is a human.
He sees himself as boring.
No ego would do that :)
Great post, EDG.

To lose you, would be to lose the only real-estate this place has.
You and a very few others.
I understand, completely.
But hope you'll linger.

It often feels disappointing, to me.

After a count of three, you will remember none of this, and you will go happily about your business.
One...

Intelligence, schmintelligence...
It's not intelligence - per se - that really counts, as any kind of a parameter.
That's no more than an accident of birth.
You could almost count it as a disability, rather than an asset.
What counts far more is what the intelligent human does with its intelligence.
Devise a test for that, and you'd be getting somewhere.

I have a feeling that a capacity for 'goodwill' would be a decisive factor.
You don't see very much of that. Along with an ability to encourage and lend moral support.
These are things that help make up a useful human. As opposed to a merely intelligent one.

What is it about "Dr. Strangelove' that you object to?
Can you describe it?
I ask Dr. Strangelove, himself, to let this occur, without repercussion.
What is it about?

Quality, not quantity, and your comments, while often sparse, are of a consistent quality.
Celebration of Beauty.
Indeed.
There isn't nearly enough of that, generally.
The Beauty, itself, is there, although for city-dwellers, it may take a pilgrimage to behold it.
The Celebration: well that's the thing.
You are able to see it, or you're not.
A forum could be a good place to lean on that aspect, and develop it, if it could ever get past being a vector for human appearances-of-things.

I am a lucky man, indeed, to live where I live, surrounded on all sides by beauty.
But there is always a price.
Mine is huge allergic reactions to beauty. Pollen is the by-product of magnificence.
There's always something.

My wife and I often wander around our estate talking to each other in retard language.
We have elevated the dialogue to dizzying heights.
All delivered while wearing guileless grins and slack-jaws.
It would make a superb American Idol act, in a land where PC did not inhibit such fun.

Yet it is in no way making-fun-of.
It is simply making-fun.
With an interesting twist:
My wife is overcome with what I can only describe as Motherly Love, for her husband transformed into what this fun transforms me into.
It's good to know that, should the wind change, and I am actually transformed into a retard, she will continue to love me.
And I her.

So basically, the userbase here is not mature and impartial enough to offer sensible critique?

That would appear to be about the size of it.
Egomanic children with a sprinkling of talent, a dash of detachment, and a hint of responsibility.
Served with a sprig of maturity.
Oh, and a sign outside, that proclaims:
"Under New Management".

Ah, nice to see a bit of maturity.
All these threads and comments make me think of a likely winner in the who-shall-we-genocide competition.

Kill anyone who is:
a: Not terminally depressed.
b: Capable of rational thought.
c; Anyone positive.
d: Anyone with a sense of humour.

That should drop the population by one or two.
It's a start.

Dylar:
If you grow weary of thinking without nuance, perhaps you should try introducing some, to your thought.
I see everyone being very good at pointing out the often-imaginary flaws in others.
While being oblivious to their own.
This is nothing new.
But it sure gets old.

BTW, I was 59 this very day.
If you're calling me "son", you must be really, really old.

"Sitting on the fence is a dangerous course.
You could even catch a bullet from the Peacekeeping Force."

Mark Knoppfler.

Leftists label me a Right-Winger.
Rightists label me a Left-Winger.
Christians call me evil.
Atheists call me a religious nut.

WTF is going on here?
Is the entire population so completely lacking in perception that a potential ally is seen to be an enemy?
Is everybody so totally out of balance, that anyone who is, gets lynched?
Is there really no way that extremists can recognize their extremeness?
Is it really so impossible for anybody to put on the brakes and simply stop?

I have a simple message.
"You don't have to be insane!"
"You can wake up, feeling good, not hating anybody, and enjoy being alive."
"You don't have to spend your time arguing, fighting, scheming, lying."
"You don't have to prove anything to anyone, or demand they provide proof to you."

Do only crows know this?

You expect to read horseshit, so horseshit is what you see.
You might try reading back a bit.
You might try sleeping on it.
You might even try imagining I know what I'm talking about.
You might try imagining I am not an enemy.
You might even try not trying.
