I run heavy machinery doing demolition and metal recovery. It's a steady cheque with benefits.

I own a company with my husband and we restore antique muscle cars and do paintwork that's in magazines. Hence the reason I havent really been able to pursue photography but hoping to in the near future.


Deleting account.... can't deal with morons on here. I was on here for a long time and the people in the beginning were kind and helpful. Too bad know-it-all kill joys with a bad life have to piss on others cornflakes. bye

I think a lot of people in town couldn't think because I heard them expressing snap judgments that relied on prejudice and stereotypes instead of considering all sides and working things out for themselves.

You know...it may not be considered PC these days, but stereotypes don't just pop out of nowhere...

...and, while were at it, technically, a prejudice may be considered bad, but it comes from previous experience with similar situations and people...it's not just blind hatred as many PC morons today would have you believe...

I find, in general, people are pretty dumb these days...and the really sad thing is, they like it...being dumb is now cool...it's a social asset (well, maybe not at MENSA)...

I work with kids in foster care and out of home care. Kids who have usually been abandoned by their parents because their parents are either drug addicts, alcoholics, extremely violent or are in jail.

We put these kids through education, skilled based training programs and photography courses. You wouldn't believe how many of them love photography and have their walls littered with photos they have taken.

We are currently in the process of making a series of mini documentaries on these kids, including them engaging in all different types of photography projects.

I agree, stereotypes don't pop out of nowhere. Many come from the culture. One example--when I was a child, ideas about what was proper or natural for men and women were pretty narrow. Ideals of masculinity and femininity were far apart; there was girl stuff and boy stuff, not much in the way of androgyny. "Blind hatred" and "PC morons" don't fit that one.

Sounds like your own cultural interpretation of what bright/intelligent are. And with MENSA quoted in there, lol, just lol. Anyone who actually knows anything knows that IQ is a worthless metric of innate intelligence, whatever that actually means. People come in all forms of personalities, traits, and backgrounds, regardless of what psychometrics try and tell you.

Stereotypes are stereotypes based on our exercise of cultural interpretations. This applies to genders as much as it applies to ethnicity and "other" cultures.

That isn't true. By the way, folks, the name "Mensa" has only one capital letter.

People come in all forms of personalities, traits, and backgrounds, regardless of what psychometrics try and tell you.

That is true, and psychometrics don't deny this diversity, they measure it.

Stereotypes are stereotypes based on our exercise of cultural interpretations. This applies to genders as much as it applies to ethnicity and "other" cultures.

Individual pathology has something to do with subscribing to stereotypes, too.

There have been more than enough studies by anthropologists and other social scientists that confirm a) intelligence is a cultural construction b) IQ tests predict your success in formal education, but nothing else and c) IQ changes with more formal education

Getting from a to c, of course is rooted in social/economic conditions and inherited resources.

Kanye, I'll stop talking about intelligence to keep a serious argument from starting.
