Musings of Big Mike ….

Usually when someone calls me a “genius” it is sarcasm. Same as when someone says. “Hey Einstein, you dropped your spoon in the buffet’s gravy.” It’s sarcastic, of course, unless your name actually is Einstein. Did you know Alfred Einstein, the great physicist, was … hey wait, that should be Albert Einstein … was a resident of New Jersey? He could have lived anywhere when he moved to this country, but he chose Jersey. Out of all the places in the world this “genius” could have lived, he picked New Jersey! So I ask, how smart was he, really? Intelligence is hard to figure. Like if someone called you either a moron, an idiot or an imbecile, what is worse? According to my source for everything, Wikipedia, a moron is smarter than an imbecile who is smarter than an idiot who is smarter than anyone in charge of our economy. In Dostoevsky’s novel “The Idiot,” the idiocy of the main character is attributed more to his honesty, trustfulness, kindness, and humility (again, thank you Wikipedia). I really have no point here. But thanks for listening.
