Does anybody else do this?

Asked by aaronheaberlin808 (69points) March 7th, 2008

Ok when i meet someone new i tend judge them on their intelligence by seeing if they meet this one requirement: For instance when someone tells you “don’t tell bobby i said his girlfriend is cheating on him” (or somthing similar) and my response is ” tell bobby what?” You normally get two responses “exactly” or “don’t tell bobby his girlfriend is cheating on him stupid”
i do this almost without thinking about it now lol but i do think of it as like a base line for intelligence

I don’t know if that is a good intelligence barometer. Especially if you’re Bobby – then that person telling you is really dumb.

I have my own scale of measurement. But yeah, I have a particular level of wit that I refuse to interact with (the low level, mostly).
It makes me seem like a bitch sometimes, but it keeps me from justabout killing anyone, so its all dandy. ;)

Okay, you cant say “lol” and “base line for intelligence” in the same sentence.

Does it count if it is used after a sentence (or before) to accentuate that humor was intended (or is being taken) if the sentence is proper? I tend to do that, I must admit, as a back up. Its so hard to get intent across over the internet.

Quit gossiping about Bobby and his girlfriend!

How is it that you are gossiping with someone you just met?

I judge intelligence by the way they talk and the brightness of their eyes. I’ve noticed that the eyes are almost always a failsafe indicator.
