Smart Women

There once was an American billionaire, one so powerful and paranoid that he insisted upon being left off all those Forbes lists. He never showed up to Bilderberg or Bohemian Grove, so after a while, he stopped being invited. His name dropped off those lists, too, then eventually out of even the memories of the few men who could possibly be called his peers.

GeniusThe billionaire died an unhappy man. Unhappy because, despite his wealth, he’d never achieved his dearest dream: He’d wanted to be a writer.

    I think I might replace “intelligence” with interesting if I were to come up with a list of things that make me like women, or any particular woman.

    Interesting women are rare, and even rarer still when that interesting woman is not also saddled with some kind of a ‘deal killer’ of a physical or psychological trait.
    The Daily Mail article that says that men are threatened by “intelligent women” is just bunk. It’s crap. It’s a lie.
    I have had both smart and stupid and in neither instance was that a determining factor in if I wanted to continue the relationship.
    It’s one of those traits that normal men don’t care about, or is so far down on the list that it’s inconsequential.
    Men mostly want sexual companionship, women mostly want a higher status male than their friends have.
    As long as you fit those roles and are not otherwise a monster (in physical appearance only – actual moral monsters can still get laid with no problem) you can be with almost anyone you want.

    • Sounds reasonable;)

        I am the epicenter of reason and sober judgment!

      In fairness, pretty much everything published is some lie. The only business to be in is the making-people-feel-good-about-themselves business.

    • Call me.

        If things don’t work out between you two, you’re still (both) invited to the upcoming “Heart of Darkness” reenactment.

          It’s all fun and games until you get your head cut off.

        Promise not to cut off my head?

        • Wouldn’t be the first time I promised that.

            Tarantino jumped the shark with Django.
            I haven’t seen it and I won’t.

            Download it guilt-free!
            Bit-torrent is always ethical entertainment.

            I’m currently working on Space 1999.

            I only saw Django because I was hanging out on a Friday night with my teenage daughter and it was her Netflix pick.

            Started out OK but ends pretty stupid and bloody.

            Jamie Foxx’ only decent contribution to pop culture came when he was a member of In Living Colour.
            His standup, if you have ever seen it, is poor and racist.
            He talks about visiting Africa and how bad they smell.
            Oh, so funny.
