During high school he started teaching him self, advanced physics, math, philosophy, Greek and Latin.

He continued to hold the “Classical” World Chess Championship until his defeat by Vladimir Kramnik in 2000. Kasparov announced on March 10, 2005, that he would retire from serious competitive chess.

I have defeated world chess champions Spassky, Karpov, Kasparov, Topalov and Anand at international tournaments, matches and rapid tournaments.

8. Stephen Hawking – IQ = 160

http://palscience.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Stephen-Hawking.jpgStephen is a British theoretical physicist, whose world-renowned scientific career spans over 40 years. His books and public appearances have made him an academic celebrity and he is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. Hawking’s key scientific works to date have included providing, with Roger Penrose, theorems regarding singularities in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes should emit radiation, which is today known as Hawking radiation (or sometimes as Bekenstein-Hawking radiation). Hawking has a neuro-muscular dystrophy that is related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a condition that has progressed over the years and has left him almost completely paralyzed.
Just I wanted to mention another name I stumbled upon while researching the topic.

William James Sidis – IQ = 250

http://palscience.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/William-James-Sidis.jpgApril 1, 1898 – July 17, 1944. Was an American child prodigy with exceptional mathematical and linguistic abilities. He became famous first for his precocity, and later for his eccentricity and withdrawal from the public eye. He avoided mathematics entirely in later life, writing on other subjects under a number of pseudonyms. With an estimated ratio IQ of over 250, he is often cited as one of the most intelligent people who ever lived. Although the University had previously refused to let his father enroll him at age nine because he was still a child, Sidis set a record in 1909 by becoming the youngest person to enroll at Harvard College. He was 11 years old, and entered Harvard as part of a program to enroll gifted students early.

I'm curious to know Michael Jackson's IQ. The man was a musical genius, in my opinion.

It's interesting to know that there are "geniuses" out there in the world who are on drugs, in prison, homeless, etc. People say that those people are "lost". But they have a very high IQs but they're on drugs and stuff. Could it be that they've had a horrible childhood? To me, it's interesting.

I agree with you regarding the homeless thing. This is a bad economy! Even the brightest are having trouble finding work. Some intelligent people don't come from good families. So, when they're in a financial crisis, they really can't turn to their family, unless they have good friends. So, homelessness can happen to the best. That's life.

As for drugs and prison, could it be that people are in situations that they can't control?

Being poor (I was but I worked my way through college and other things. Some people don't have that patience nor self-discipline.), being in an environment that involves drugs, crime, abuse, no emotional support, no love, hate, etc.

They're people out there in prison and in the streets who never had a chance, in my opinion.

As for drugs, well, don't people do drugs so they can feel better emotionally and physically?

i was orphaned when i was 14 in Compton my older sister lived in in miami and all my other sibling were taken in by my aint but not me i killed my mother at birth so i was labeled a fucking demon in my family yeah even labeled the worst poison to youth

even i was smart enough to stay out of prison and jail not to mention being responsible with my love for Mary




so there just stupid if they don't have the self discipline or respect there is no excuse

04-07-2011, 04:46 PM

Jesus Christ! I'm sorry to hear about your struggleS. Listen, if people had any type of respect and love there would be no fuck ups like this! It's sad to know that theyare kids who are born into bullshit dumps without guidance, love, respect, money, support, and the thought of some one caring. It's a disgrace to know that you and others had to have an experience like that as a child. Were they serious?!

It's good to know that you turned out good. I did but since I don't drive an expensive car, since I don't behave "thug" or any type of nonsense such as that, I'm labeled all sorts of bad things. This is where self-discipline and patience comes in to play and I thank God that I have it.

In my opinion, there is an excuse if one comes from a poor background. Now, if one comes from a good background, then there is NO EXCUSE WHAT'S SO EVER!

but there still is no excuse for stupidity

I think that America tolerates stupidity because it's a business. Think about it. Due to the economy being the way that it is, criminality is a booming business. Lawyers, cops, judges, DA's, Homeland Security, and even the criminals themselves are working overtime. Prisons makes big money even more than the schools. Actually, prisons (including privately owned prisons) receive more funding than public schools. That's why criminals have more rights than the victims because instead of arresting the person who committed the crime, why not arrest the victim who was only defending his/her self? Double the money! They make these bullshit laws so that criminality can always be a good solid business.

Lol at the fact that prisoners receive three good meals a day, warm showers, heat in the Winter time and AC in the summer time, good cable TV, etc. They're people who don't even have that and they're working everyday.

It's all for profit.

It's funny you mention that because there was another article about MJ's genius. They say i group of back up dancers can practice a routine for like days, mastering it to perfection, then he would walk in the room when they were all done, they would show it to him once, and he would have it memorized for life off one look.

He also invented a pair of shoes for the Smooth Criminal video that allowed him to seem to be leaning and defying gravity. that lean wasn't strings or computers, but more the product of a modified shoe he made for that routine.





there are a few true genius' in hollywood that i've noticed based on my knowledge of their work and work habits.

Michael Jackson
Jim Hanson
Walt Disney
Will Smith

outside of a seemingly infinite pot of creativity and characters to pull from, he also made several ground break innovations in puppeteering that are till this day ahead of their time even in the world of robotics.

people should remember that before him puppets were

yeah i agree, i think Nas is average or slightly above (which is signficantly higher then the average rapper) but Jay-z is significantly above average.

you can tell from the way someone speaks a HOW they do things, not really what they do.

Even while Nas and Jay-z were having their beef it was very clear that Jay-z understood the full context of it more so then Nas. It was literally a battle to inherit rap. Several of the moves Jay-z was making in the era, using big's lines, backroom manuevering at Def Jam, doing songs with southern artists, and so forth were all a part of a far reaching empire grab mapped out and executed successfully by Jay-Z. Initiating a beef with Nas was a small part of it because it was a move to grab 'legitimacy' in the same way kings of europe needed the pope to bless them in order to be emperors because Nas was the most 'respected' artist in NY and stood toe to toe with Biggie while he was alive.



Jay-Z is incredibly machievallian to the point of being a sociopath. He does everything with the primary intention of 'winning' including wifing beyonce.



rappers i think are very intelligent are

Camron
Chubb Rock
Rakim
Jay-Z
Nas
Bushwick Bill
Tupac
Biggie

idk wtf you're talking about, but not even the amount of characters, but their randomness.

Usually when you ask someone to create something you can tell a creative genius from an average thinker by how out of the blue or how redefinitive of clique character archtypes the character is.


The guy did everything, from sesame street, to the muppets to star wars.
and all of these feature characters that don't fit into the mold of typical archtypes.

You can look at a character like Elmo and Big Bird and think they're just childhood pawns, which they are, but when you try to picture yourself coming up with something that random, effective, and complexed in their simplicity, then you'll understand.
