It’s no secret that America’s prisons are over-populated. In fact, we have more citizens incarcerated per capita, than any other country. Every time I hear the matter discussed, it’s always the media echoing the excuse given by the authorities, which is “the schools are to blame”. I find it strange that no one ever seems to realize or at least mention what that actually means… “Americans are stupid criminals”. Those incompetent schools were certainly put to the test with me. I nearly killed myself by accident a dozen times over and faculty once or twice, but not one of them ever thought hitting curiosity at the speed of stupid was a reason to throw me away. In my culture, that makes them kin and we fight for family. Here goes my first single-knuckle hit to the chops of America’s authorities.
The Dunedin Study in New Zealand is widely and accurately considered the most respected psychological study in history. At first ridiculed, because you idiots watch too much TV, but is now supported by governments across the world, including ours. They’ve discovered some pretty interesting things, America. For instance, they’ve confirmed that education level has absolutely no influence on criminal behavior. Thank you, New Zealand! We had to wait for their confirmation, because you people weren’t able to simply look around that confusing space called “the rest of the world” to see that those answers were there all along. So listen up, schools… the next time they point their finger blaming you for anything criminal/prison related, spike that ball in their face and shout…
“Here’s a gift from one of our dumbass criminal kids!”
Before I continue, I want to shout out to one of those unsung heroes. I wouldn’t take History in the gifted classes, because it was already too difficult for me to grasp. It was sending me into a spiral of confusion and progressively affecting other subjects. I, also, had difficulties with literature, so that teacher sat with me to discuss the problem. I explained that I respect her subject, but I simply don’t have time for fiction. I wish I did, but I don’t. A week later, she chased me down in the hallway (didn’t even wait for class), handed me a book, and asked if I would read it. I replied, “Sure, Mrs. F”. Once started, I didn’t put it down, until it was done. Twice, I caught her peeking through the library door window and smiling at me. However, it made no impact on her class and the effort was likely deemed a failure, because I was a dumb selfish kid and didn’t think to clue her in on what had actually happened. Which was that she punted me into a lifelong love of history that changed my life forever (perhaps yours, too… in just a moment).
Thank you, Mrs. Franklin.
It’s a new world, unlike any other time in history. Nerds across the globe united and we brought you tomorrow at max velocity. Those hula-dancing spear-chucking New Zealanders are mastering that Psychology, while social media kicked a Bieber into outer fricking space. A Kid dominated the poker circuit and a boy band beat the Beatles. I repeat, a ******* boy band beat the Beatles (this gives me cognitive dissonance on a level you can’t imagine). Out of the shadows arose a Nobleman to put the Finger on Batman’s true identity …meanwhile, the Batkid protected one of America’s largest cities. There are those among us seemingly unaware that change is in the air. And I’m thinking it’s time for a wakeup call to those who are stuck in yesterday, because the world that you know has already ended… not with a whimper nor a bang, as previously predicted, but a one second *blip* and I think you missed it.
Out of the millions of Americans suffering from the disorder of genius level IQ, approximately ⅓ are thrown in the trash and ⅓ more flee this country. These statistical estimates have been known and on the books for longer than I’ve been alive, yet not one person raises a questioning eyebrow to it. But what if I told you that the plight of the Americanized genius-sapiens is actually the same as yours, just flavored differently? And that by examining the nature of how the unusual traits that make up genius coalesce with the same variables that affect you, we can gain a much deeper understanding behind American inequality, as a whole. Look around the page; you’ll find no advertisements, no phishing attempts, and no angles whatsoever to profit… just an old-fashioned conversation between me and you. I will not be stopping halfway to request your credit card or personal information. This ride has an end and by the time you’ve reached it, you will understand the causal factors that explain why you’re not equal. But more importantly, you will better understand how to fight them.
My IQ is within a quarter of 1% of the world population and my analytical aptitude is within the .03 percentile. I am what you people call a genius, although I’ve never embraced that term in my life, because the Press and Hollywood have distorted the facts to such an extent, it now bares little to no resemblance to the truth of the matter. Don’t be misled into believing that I compare myself to the greats. I’m just a pawn on the board and this is true for most of us; however, the patterns that make them such oddities tend to persist throughout us all. Psychology states that meaningful communication between you and me is “all but impossible”. Impossible is a word that I hear a lot in your world, even over the simplest puzzles. How about you grab some of that forgone pioneer spirit and take a leap of curiosity with me. Let’s find out, if they’re right.
