    Still, SD pretty much explained it in the first post.

    me id rather be really smart because with intelligence comes popularity.

    And even if that weren't true I'm assuming that "REALLY" part means that you'll be pretty unique in that department, in that case popularity would have a practical limit, at most people are going to die/kill for you, for intelligence it's a harder to place a limit on what you can use it for. And you can't really say that you're satisfied with your own intelligence without first experiencing what it feels like to be smarter, chances are that if you had first experienced that you wouldn't want to give it up.


    @ Mooch, why are you hosting tet's old sig on your own photobucket instead of just taking the original link?

    Do you know anything about popularity or intelligence? Believe me, the unpopular geniuses I know are much less happy than the popular idiots.

    Seriously? Damn...that was not my intention. All I was trying to do was dispute his claim that, if one is a genius, one does not need popularity. It's true, too...I know two unpopular individuals with genius IQs, and they're not particularly happy, whereas various popular idiots who I know are quite happy.

    "ingorance is bliss" is the phrase you're thinking of i think. and yeah id sorta agree, but for some popular people such as movie stars in america, having the stupid paparrazi follow you and crash into your car just to take pictures of you isnt so great. >_>

    well see that paparazzi are what is worse than the scum of apocalypse. the lowest most pathetic profession (if you can call it that) in the history of the universe. But no one says you have to be celebrity popular, you could just be the guy at work or in the club or at school that everyone gravitates to, the best version of the center of attention... and being that way is a great feeling.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this... but you just completely voided your own question.

    well, that was just an example. i didnt limit myself to that kinda popular. =P
    but as everyone said, there's perks for which ever you choose. i'd sometimes just rather be the popular one so i wouldnt have to think about how stupid people are and a lot of them are happier then the smart ones =/

    and i hate those paparrazis too, horribe people

    I'd rather be popular. Your parents don't have high expectations for you and you dun really care about school, plus high school is much funner. You'd still end up with an average job if yur not a complete idiot.

    Maybe im only saying that becuz im already super smart and don't know what it feels like to be the opposite eheh. Not saying im unpopular >.> Just... quiet xD.
