Also I wouldn't measure accomplishments by shiny pieces of paper anyways, that's partly what I mean by childlike. You're all stuck in the box and can't even see the bars of your prison.

So, you are saying not even community college? I alter my guess to a high school diploma then.

High school diplomas are for losers. A real man can get any job he wants based solely on the bulge in his pants.

I have a degree and a lot of "education" behind me. But I don't rate my accomplishments on it because school didn't teach me anything, especially anything relevant. My time and money would have been better spent on Wikipedia. Everything important I taught myself.

So why not list them if they do exist? You have posted three separate paragraphs skirting the question.

Because you asked what has my intelligence accomplished. Degrees are a measure of ability to do what you are told, not of intelligence or real accomplishment. I find no real pride in it and don't look at people with degrees as particularly intelligent, besides maybe at the PhD level. And even then, honorary PhD degrees like the one given to Linus Torvalds for creating Linux gains more respect for me than Richard Dawkin's dissertation on chicken beaks). Bill Gates has accomplished more than I have and dropped out of Harvard, but I digress.

The paperwork just gets you passed the computers that filter resumes, personality and real-world experience are what get you the job. And for that my work on open source and commercial products just leads to a boundless portfolio. I have done a lot of good, very intelligent stuff over the years. My laziness to list it all out here does not detract from it when I feel I have nothing I need to prove.

grats OP on reading a 1 week old cracked article? http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-belove...sly-overrated/

sad that you can't even come up with an original thought.
Article claims that frozen white castles taste exactly the same as "fresh" white castles...complete and utter bullshit, author has no credibility.

Exactly! Everyone knows that no matter how fresh or stale a white castle burger is, it's going to taste like reheated dingle berries. Amateur.

Most people will laugh at this. But, I for one couldn't agree more. Good perspective.
