Is this guy serious or being funny? Help me decide.

  1. Dec 23, 2004 #1
    When I first started cruising this guy's website I thought he was a pretty funny, in an Andy Kaufman way. Then, the more I clicked the links at the top of his page, the more it started to look like he might be serious. Take a look at his site (linked) and let me know what you think. Humorous or Serious? The pictures he produces there would stampede cattle. If it wasn't for the pictures I'd say he was serious.


    Oh, and he claims to be a genius whose High School transcipts misstated his IQ at 99 (it should read 99th percentile).

    Doesn't look like a parody to me. I can't tell exactly what the point of this site is, though. How the heck did you even find it?

    Looks like he used Microsoft Publisher for his webpage. The design and layout could use some improvement. I've seen better professional looking designs from non-geniuses

    hmmm.. I actually believe him to be completely serious. Just a bit odd. Genius? Who am I to argue with a guy with multiple degrees from ITT Tech? I have been turned down by them several times because I couldn't draw Tippy worth a crap.

    I'd love to help you but I'm [too] often mistaken about such matters.

    Good luck!

    I think he needs to sare the absinthe that he is clearly slamming hourly.

    And further, even if his official Mensa score is 135, that isn't all that great. If you've read the Mensa newsletters, high IQ people can be quite stupid. Just look at me. I know i'm an idiot.

    The guy's a raving nut, so what if his IQ's higher than napoleons, look what happened to him.

    lol, if you hadn't quoted me i would edit that. Thanks for pointing it out though I like to learn from my mistakes.

    If you learn from your mistakes you must be a genius by now.
