Intelligent people tend to messy, stay awake longer, and swear more

This is true?


All those late nights watching movies was stimulating brain activity.

You swear a lot and stay awake late? Look, if you also tend to leave a bit of a mess behind, there's good news for you.

Scientific research has linked night owls with higher IQ scores for quite some time now. President Obama, Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill, Keith Richards and Elvis Presley are all famous for nocturnal activities. If you tend to go to sleep rather late, you're definitely in good company.

A study by the University of Minnesota suggests, that the messy desk of geniuses is actually linked to their intelligence. If you don't spend much time cleaning and organizing everything around you, your mind is obviously occupied with more important stuff.

Re: Intelligent people tend to messy, stay awake longer, and swear more

Check all those boxes too! Since we're obviously all cut from the same god damn cloth here, I petition to have the name DVDTalk changed to 'SMARTtalk' or, we can exist in complete secrecy. Our own secret society. Yea, actually, I don't know if I care to add more intelligent people here. It's already kinda crowded as it is.

Now when my wife gets on my case about cleaning up my clutter I'll just send her the link to this article.

Smart! Fuck yeah!

Re: Intelligent people tend to messy, stay awake longer, and swear more

I used to fucking stay awake late when I worked goddamn night hours, but now that I have a motherfucking morning job I can't fucking do that anymore. That also makes it even harder for me to find time to clean.

Re: Intelligent people tend to messy, stay awake longer, and swear more

All you motherfuckers can suck my moderately sized brown dick. Pinches culeros here. All of you. Chinga su pinches madres and if you don't have that.. then the hell w/ your grandmother or sister or aunt. There's someone down that line that's a female that can fuck off. And your dad? He's a piece of shit. Fuck all you cocksuckers.

I do admit though...I do keep a clean pad though cuz I have way too much expensive shit to dust up like the egyptian tombs or Alan Smithee's shithole.

Re: Intelligent people tend to messy, stay awake longer, and swear more

I fit all three criteria and do well on IQ tests, therefore it must be true.

My desk is incredibly messy. It would probably take me a couple of days to list all the things that are on it.

Well this is bullshit.

Swear all the fucking time, barely sleep. But am a total prick about things having to be clean and in its right spot. Call me Corky Fucking Thatcher.

Please don't confuse "swearing more" like many folks with "borderline Tourette's" as in your own case, Snake.

I had to clear a bunch of shit off my computer desk after I got up from the nap I took because I stayed up too late last night to tell you assholes to go fuck yourselves.
