She is a shit journalist so that might have something to do with it. On fox news she was paid to be a blonde that told dumb old white men what they wanted to hear.

you mean having to sit still and be serious for some stretch of time?  ok maybe you're right

Well, the questions themselves tend to be oriented to a pretty specific brain type.  I have a hard time imagining him working through some of the geometric/spatial relationship style problems that are geared toward the engineering kind of thinking.

It seems to be a pretty solid delusion.  I wonder what got it going?  Maybe he saw one of those Mensa ads with a puzzle that says that if you can do this puzzle you might be able to join Mensa?  And found he could do it?

Or maybe he really did get a high score once on an IQ test.  Some people do, even when they aren't that smart.  They just have a knack for IQ tests.

He was clearly smarter than he is now, once, although I don't see much evidence that he was ever actually smart.  But he did used to be able to construct coherent sentences on the fly.  Perhaps he thinks he must have a high IQ because he made a lot of money quite quickly.  That took some brand of smarts, I guess.

Hard to tell. But coupled with his weird genetic beliefs, it all adds up to something pretty ugly.
I think his IQ is probably above average but nothing to jump up and down about.  like maybe 120 or so.  probably his parents and tutors told him throughout his childhood that he was really bright and could do anything, giving him an exaggerated sense of his intelligence.

guessing it was reinforced by two delusions that (as I understand it) are common with people who inherit a lot of money:  1) thinking their parents' success reflects on them in a way, because they inherited the magic genes responsible for that success, and 2) an exaggerated sense of much of their wealth they really built up themselves (as opposed to inherited), giving them false evidence of their own talents

eta: another possible factor I've read about is that he supposedly has a chip on his shoulder because his fellow rich kids thought (correctly) that he was an idiot.  so he was getting one message at home and the opposite from his peers.

I'd be shocked if he got 120 on an IQ test because of the nature of IQ tests. 
another article said that an assistant da had lied in court and claimed that the victim had given consent for the rapist to receive custody and the victim's current address, which is hard to explain away as a procedural or technical mistake

It isn't really hard to explain that away either.
With this particular case it may simply be a procedural or technical mistake because of child support rules.

I wouldn't hang around with or do business with someone who was an asshole.

You're so smart. Why can't women be as smart as you?

You probably can.  Just drop way too much acid all at once and then hit yourself in the head with a hammer about 15 times.

Hey everyone, I have a new moral: don't engage with testy because he's a fucking moron.
Arts and Entertainment / Re: Harvey Weinstein
I have finished reading the article.  In addition to being a creepy scumbag, he also has a creepy obsession with Mila Kunis.

Hey it's pretty cool how you snuck in a victim blame in there between your "I'm so old and out of touch I don't know who this is" lead in and your hot take solution conclusion.
Arts and Entertainment / Re: Harvey Weinstein
There is one article in the Wrap (by its founder) alleging that she had a story in the 2000's when she was a writer for NYT that touched on some of this stuff, but they killed it.  She claims it was because of interference from Weinstein, and also that Matt Damon and Russell Crowe called her to influence things as well.
Does "Seth Abramson" actually have any credibility as a journalist?

This "there is no motive?  something isn't adding up!  CONSPIRACY COVERUP" bullshit facebook is getting old.
Arts and Entertainment / Re: Whatcha playing'?
I did not realize it had been ported.  I don't think I could give up the keyboard/mouse setup for this kind of game though.  It is ideal.
There's a whole lotta smoke, but not much fire that I can find.

lol of course

Well, there were segregationists in the Democratic party when they rammed the civil rights act through.  That worked.

Change the definition of mass shootings to, say, 8.  What does it look like then?
It looks closer to Italian than French or Spanish.
To some extent, I don't give a shit what humans did 100,000 years ago as hunter gatherers.  It is irrelevant, like the paleo diet.  On the other hand, humans are animals and it's pretty unrealistic to have this nth level vision of human development where we can expect to operate in a system in which we are not animals. 
I think you mean it possesses.

...or does it?
Hahaha, "postmodern left"
