I think that the real reason for such a high intelligence answer is the wording of the poll. I would rather be "Known for" my intelligence as I guess 78% of our region. It seems stereotypically shallow to rather be "Known for" looks over intelligence. We may have had a more diverse answer if there were more less stereotyped options. Like strength, or perseverance, or bravery.
In Hunter Leptk, crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare.
Not to be known for either makes sense. We donít want to be put in little boxes. And yet, in my heart of hearts Iíd like to be known for both high intelligence and great beauty. A boy can dream.
Absolutely right, but it is a Would You Rather? question which is based on the idea of one or the other. Of course, Iíd rather be cherished for a whole range of fine qualities, with my not-so-fine qualities accepted and forgiven.
1) I am reading Find Me (Trouve-moi in French) by Andrť Aciman. It is the sequel to Call me by your name. Philosophical, romantic.
2) I have watched Itís a Sin (Channel 4, UK). About the time of AIDS, sad yes, but very funny too, lots of pretty people and great performances. Absolutely fabulous.
In Otis-T, the large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defence, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Void.
This would only be right and just, but I like regions, two of them anyway.
An aside - Do you realise that Iím part of the international ťlite? I do a modest job, get a modest wage and donít live in either London or Montreal, but I read the Guardian and donít vote Conservative, so I guess Boris Johnsonís got me dead to rights. When I said Brexit was really stupid, Theresa May called me a citizen of nowhere. Who am I to argue?
What I like about NationStates are the regions, though, particularly Nudist Dreamland and Gay Equality. People come from anywhere and everywhere. We are not all the same, but we are soul mates.
Well, your incessant campaigning for fewer intelligence answers probably helped influence the outcome. ('.
I am now reading Wings (Les Ailes in French) by Mikhail Kouzmine, the first Russian novel of homosexual love. It was written in 1905 and is said to be more forthright than anything by Wilde, Gide or Proust. It should be interesting and I will tell you if it is.
How little late ? Like, 5 minutes or so ?
Fashionably late ?
