would you consider top end hobbyists to be geniuses?
« on: November 19, 2010, 07:48:28 PM »
I started thinking about this when my friend showed me this website where people were fixing a VW van by hand. as in hammering out sheet metal for the body, and stuff like that. he called them geniuses, and it made me think about those painters and sculptors/converters who do stuff which just makes you say "wow"
I don't care about the rules.

I would call them troubleshooters that have identified troubles they are good at shooting. :-)

Your signature made me smile, because I forgot all about that post!



Also, genius is a term that should be limited to people with an IQ over 130. The more correct term is savant.

Ask any normal woman if your typical gamer is a genius and then tell us the answer.

We all know it but still want to hear what they had to say.

But I'm not talking about typical games, im talking about the best painters in the world.

He can paint 'Eavy Metal quality... in 10 minutes.
He has an entire collection of Citadel Paints... and has never once organized it by color.
His paintbrush has experienced more than a lesser man's hobby knife.
His blood smells like plastic glue.

He is...
The most interesting hobbyist in the world.

Plus, we know that women are always right. We men are what's left behind.
