I imagine that the intelligent people are the ones so intelligent that they don't even need or want to look 'intelligent' anymore.

Make no mistake. I was still calling them foolish
LOL. That happens when you try to talk sense to a fool, I hear.

Quick aside, I think this is lighthearted... that's how I intend it, at least. I don't have any actual stake in this discussion, but I can't resist this kind of banter. I don't think anyone in this thread is foolish, to be honest, though it's clear others disagree. :D

I like it, too.

As for being a fool, it's not so bad, kind of fun, actually. We do enjoy rushing in where angels fear to tread. But then, most angels don't do a lot of Martial training. I think the wings kinda' mess up the gi top.

As Oscar Wilde said - "Life is one fool thing after another whereas love is two fool things after each other."
