I guess I'm just a moron. You may be intelligent, but the world is full of intelligent failures. You also need to be motivated to use your intelligence to learn how to do things, like estimate the direction, for example. You may be intelligent, but if you keep saying "I just don't have a sense of direction and I'm just not interested in learning about how to tell what direction I'm going", you will look like a moron. Fortunately, many people on this forum are still curious about how things work and are willing to learn how to do new things. > > > -- > > "Four Weis" <mweinopsamcom> wrote in message > news:3B3BEFA3.3465864Bnopsamcom... > > Whatever floats his boat.
