Did you ever watch the "are you smarter than 4th grader?" show? I heard the little ones bit the breath out of the big ones.

In Canada, it was "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?"

...Anyway, so you think a woman who craps a kid for the sole reason to hold down a guy who does not love her is smarter or a guy who want to fill a female to permanently manipulate her to be available to him on some level is smart than their offspring? etc.

Odd question. But yes. Women are smarter than kids.

I believe that men and women combined are smarter than dogs, but I'm primarily thinking of their driving skills.

I have to stick with my driving skills test for IQ. Dogs are not only terrible drivers, but they run away after they hit you. Sure, they may lick your face first, but that's really no substitute for medical intervention.

He retracted what he said knowing that if that were to have any veracity, that would also mean that dogs are smarter than men. ...You know? "Women are smarter than men (which is not true, not even close), dogs are smarter than women, therefore dogs are also smarter than men.". I would agree to agree with it even tough I don't for the simple reason I am dog lover and I do believe that dogs (or some of them at least) are smarter than many many humans, men and women combined.



It was a commentary on the fact that we can believe anything we want, and that we can get agreement on the things we believe that match what others might think. It really has nothing to do with who's smarter than whom.

But, anyway….


We all have to watch out for confirmation bias. As David Cross displayed, people will applaud anything. Now contradict them.

Wrong! their medicine is out of this world and beside they can skateboard, but I can't, I can ski but not skateboard. I know, that much like me, others, though they can drive, they cannot skateboard! Ha :mrgreen: ! Check this chub. I met the pair that do dog food commericals at one of Pasadena, CA's rose parades, I couldn't believe how good they were, not only that, they were also some outstanding ambassadors.

Dogs may or may not be better drivers than humans, that's debatable.
But at least we can all agree that humans are better drivers than cats.

Dunno. Are the bill collectors still phoning you demanding payment? If not, then maybe. If so, then still maybe. You know how bill collectors are.

I don't have a jstor account. I really want to see entry number 772 from this article: http://www.jstor.org/stable/25607525?se ... b_contents

I've used google search to piece together this:

772) Steinsel-Reient, Grand-Duche de Luxembourg. Plaque de bronze (tabula ansata), trouvee en 1981 dans le temenos d'un temple decouvert sur le plateau qui domine TAlzettetal : 4,8 x 8,5 x 0,2 cm. Lettres de 0,6 a 0,7 cm. J. Krier et R. Weiller,. Hemecht. Rev. d'hist. luxemb.,. 34, 1982, p. 255-270 ; photo, p. 264, Abb. 3. Deo Cerunin\co Soltrius \ Pruscus. \ ufotum) sfoluit) Ifibens) mferito). Le dieu Cerunicus n'etait pas connu jusqu'ici. II fait ici son appa rition dans la ciuitas Treuerorum, ou il possedait done un temple, d'ou provient aussi une statuette en bronze de dieu nu (les attributs tenus en mains ont disparu), qui fait penser aussi bien a Mercure qu'a. Apollonou a Jupiter jeune et imberbe (p. 264, Abb. 4). Son nom, de racine celtique, evoque le dieu-cerf. Cernunnos. Le....

Google search turned the printing into its best guess, but it could have spelling errors (especially that "TAlzettetal" part). There's also the problem that I don't understand French, but I figured I'd cross that bridge once I'd managed to get all the proper pieces of it built.

Or rather ...

Blah, blah ... A bronze plaque (a tablet with dovetail handles) was found in 1981 in the precinct of a temple discovered on the plateau above (Talwhatever) ... blah, blah ...

(Then there's the citation of a paper published in 1982) ... The god Cerunicus had not been known before this date when he made his appearance in the community of Treuerorum, where there was a temple dedicated to him - or, possibly, as a bronze statuette of a naked god (although it is not now known who made this attribution) which is very reminiscent of Mercury ...

And there I run out of puff - there's certainly a comment about a young, beardless Jupiter, but I don't see the context.

Do we have no Francophones here?

EDIT: Alzettetal - the valley of the river Alzette (a tributary of the Moselle) in Luxemburg.

The Google translation isn't bad. I would translate it as:
772) Steinsel-Reient, Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. Bronze plaque (tabula ansata), found in 1981 in the temenos of a temple discovered on the plateau which overlooks [TAlzettetal]: 4.8 x 8.5 x 0.2 cm.

Deo Cerunin\co Soltrius \ Pruscus. \ ufotum) sfoluit) Ifibens) mferito). The god Cerunicus was not known before this. He made his appearance here in the civitas Treverorum*, where he therefore posessed a temple, from which a bronze statuette of the nude god also comes (the attributes held in its hands have disappeared), which suggest Mercury as well as Apollo and a young, beardless Jupiter (p. 264, Abb. 4). His name, of a Celtic root, evokes the deer-god, Cernunnos. The...


*I think he is talking about the Treveri who inhabited the area around Luxembourg from ~200 BCE until ~200 CE.

The national anthem of Luxemburg is Ons Heemecht (Flemish version), often written as Ons Hémécht in a mongrel Flemish/French version. That means 'Our Homeland'. So, at a guess, how about 'Homeland Review of Luxemburg History' or even National Review ...'?

I assumed it was an abbreviation because of the period.

All the weird moon languages are starting to bust my craniation.

Yeah I don't wanna do that. It's non-conducive to my plans. I just wanted to see the photograph.

Oh look, more German: https://incipesapereaude.wordpress.com/ ... en/tempel/

Es sind nur wenige Kultbilder und Weihegaben erhalten geblieben, so daß aus diesen Fragmenten nur wenige Informationen über die hier verehrten Gottheiten gewonnen werden konnten. Ein 1981 gefundenes bronzenes Votivtäfelchen belegt, daß es von einem romanisierten Treverer, also einem Angehörigen des hier ansässigen gallischen Stammes, gestiftet wurde.

Die Inschrift lautet:

DEO CERUNIN / CO
SOLTRIUS / PRUSCUS /
V(OTUM) S(OLVIT) L(IBENS) M(ERITO)

In der Übersetzung:

Dem Gott Cerunincus hat Soltrius Pruscus sein Gelübde eingelöst, freudig und verdientermaßen.

Well, this page claims the inscription reads:
DEO CERVNIN/CO SOLTRIVS/ PRVSCVS/ V(otum) S(oluit) L(ibens) M(erito)
“To the god Cerunincus, Soltrius Pruscus fulfilled his vow freely and willingly”[5]

That's just reinforcing the problem, though: They all link to something, but none of them link to the source online where I can read it and point to it and quote it directly. :(

Yeah - I've been searching too. I can find a mllion references to it, but not a sniff of the real thing. I think it's not there, Gord.
