    Measuring Dumbness with a Ruler

    Interesting video on human response times.

    I'm not sure it dumbness though (well, just in case because I may be slow :lol

    that's an interesting test...in terms of computer science and speed of throughput, a long wire introduces a disproportionate amount of propagation delay versus cpu processing. Neuronal/synapse speed may not by necessity equate to reaction time. (Of course, i'm arguing this because my reaction times aren't world class like they should be... :lol

    Muhammad Ali could throw a punch faster than an eye blink... 19 ten-thousandths of a second. Arguably, he wasn't an intellectual giant.

    He wasn't well educated, but he was very intelligent. Ali was a giant of a man in many ways and his intellect was right up there. Just an opinion.

    Although I believe there is ample objective evidence to support my opinion, my opinion is not important.
    Back to measuring dumbness with a ruler.

    Hi Daqua,

    No, i'm with you on this one...Ali is/was a giant of a man. But, where that leads us is a long road of discussion. There are many forms of intelligence and he obviously is in possession of at least some of them.
