Hey guys, remember when my shtick was self-deprecation that made people uncomfortable because of how it was brutally severe it was while patently obvious that it wasn't really much of an exaggeration? Yeah, those were the days. [/carnivore]

I was actually not named after the Seth Thomas of chronometric fame, as I would guess the street you pass was. As best my parents can remember, they saw a place called "Seth's Bakery" on Thomas Street, and since my father's middle name is Thomas they put the two together. It's hard to believe now, but Seth was once an uncommon name in my area. In any given one-month period of my early life in Central Indiana I'd meet just as many people who couldn't pronounce it properly as in the one month I spent in Spain (where the sound is used but short e's are very difficult for them*) and the one month in France (where short e's are common but most speakers find the sound nigh impossible unless it's used by Arab expats in the phrase "th la menthe").

Most anyone can wear a bowtie, but that requires that you include the people who buy pre-tied ones because they can't learn to make a rather elementary knot. It's that arcane skill that gives me power over the common run of man. [/Euthyphro complex]

When I was working on, I think, my Tenderfoot rank in Boy Scouts I forgot pretty much every knot I was required to know once I had demonstrated them. They never tell you that two of those are actually useful in scenarios where I've found myself, and the implication they instill is that the requirement to use them is an intelligence test to keep out the mentally challenged (a less PC group to discriminate against than the gays and atheists). I've honestly wasted a great number of hours of my life having to either teach myself to tie a timber half-hitch or figure out a functioning (and usually less efficient) alternative to it using nothing but rope. I'd talk about the other knot that haunted me, but I can't even remember what it's called and a two-cent piece of aluminum, attached to ropes where that knot would be necessary, makes life much easier. I just didn't always have such a piece of aluminum on hand.

Knowing how to tie a bow around my neck is atonement for these failings. If you knew that I've forgotten the two alternative necktie knots my father taught me over the conventional one most men can do and reminded me, I'd tell you to do something crass.

Oh, and pipes are for smoking, not for wearing. Assuming you mean a tobacco pipe. I've seen a form of textile adornment called "piping", but I don't wear it all that often because Elizabethan doublets are pretty expensive.

*My flatmates in Madrid suggested that I call myself Toms locally because it was the closest philological equivalent to Seth, not even knowing that Thomas is my middle name. Instead I acquiesced to being called "Saate", and I felt really stupid when I figured out on the train leaving the city that I would have at least been "Saathe" if I told them to pretend it's spelled "Sez". That's a dialectal thing that for Spanish only works in central Spain, but shit, that's where I was. In France, the whopping four people who learned my name called me "Set".

Purely out of curiousity--does it bug you when you find yourself in a relationship with a girl who's obviously not as smart as you? I ask because, knowing the whole wide spectrum of female abilities, it can't be often that you find those who are quite on the same wavelength as you, and I wonder if it colours your opinion of women in general.

You'll find I drink most of the time that I'm posting here.

I used to be only slightly stupider than Seth.

His dramatic suicide attempts are matched by my slow, creeping self-destruction.

The difference being he's still Seth & I'm not allowed to edit my posts.

You got me started and I didn't know how to stop.

Asila-

The question you invoke with your other question, "is Seth smart, and if so, how?" is a pretty annoying one for me. Even if I knew how to answer it, that would cause me to apply the same standards of "smartness" to other people. Even if I thought that could be done accurately, I wouldn't want to because then I'd be the douche I pretend to be.

Pretending IQ means something, and settling that it takes both nature and nurture for it to get really big, I might have had a pretty damn high one if my parents knew how to nurture it or wanted to. I have great parents, but they're not the type that would even want a high-ability child. But, they didn't, so I don't. I was just left with bizarre wiring that made me interested in smartly things but not really able to conquer them. In middle school I came to train myself to think in certain patterns and such to create a facade of smartness that would be very convincing, but it was always a facade. In high school I felt like I should finally get around to making a real life personality and round it out with actual skills and interests, but it was pretty late in the game for that.

The metamorphosis from the guy that people look at and think, "hey, he might know who Socrates was" into the guy who reads Socratic dialogues for shits and giggles was a pretty trying one that coincided with other defects in my wiring.

So, if I ever doubted in any recess of my heart that I was full of shit, living in Hyde Park surrounded by people who were smarter than I could ever fathom being was most humbling because they didn't act like it. I've lived through being given opera commentary by a man who's in history books dealing with the invention of the laser. I've wondered whether or not I should expose myself as a moron for admitting to having seen the Austin Powers movies only to hear a Dr. Evil impersonation moments later from someone who was sent to University of Cambridge on a Harvard scholarship (which he won with essays written in his second language) to round out his understanding of resonance imaging physics with a philosophical background. I had a crush on my RA who was cute, funny, had a great taste in punk music, and having started college at age 16 had earned her JD from Harvard when she was 22.

All this while I'd take mediocre levels of calculus and physics and still do poorly.

IN CONCLUSION: finding girls around here, a major state university town, who are smarter than me isn't really that hard to do. Four years ago I'd go to parties and make out with half a dozen girls and most of them probably had higher IQs, better math proficiency, and fewer gaps in their understanding of British history than I do. So, if you want to know why I REALLY suck at relationships, find any post by me in the Loveline forum dating back to 2000 (if ezboard for i-mockery still exists if you go further than 2003).
