Interestingly enough, today's Dilbert strip (in the calendar) goes like this: [ Dilbert is lying in a sofa and Dogbert is standing on one side with a stop-watch in his hand. ] Dogbert: "Don't mind the stop-watch. I'm testing my theory that people get dumber every minute." Dilbert: "It's not so simple, Dogbert. You also have to consider my "Emotional Intelligence," which is defined in a book I haven't read." [ Dogbert stops his stop-watch. ] Dogbert: "Twelve seconds." Dilbert: "Give me that watch, you hog!" :-P daniel, told just yesterday that he was good at "hanging out" with people. Both high IQ and high EQ? Could it be? :-P ;-) -- <> QHEIL RYNENYA ALANDEA <> <> <> RINYA LAWEA <> Daniel Andreasson <>
