The thread about sports agents and finances reminded me of a discussion I had not long ago. It started when someone said that Wayne Rooney is a Genius (an English football star). As you can imagine, a lengthy beer-fueled argument ensued. My point was that being a genius didn't necessarily mean that one has to be intellectually extraordinary. But that to demonstrate such brilliant naturaly ability consistently was as good an example of genius as most.

Part of the definition of genius : "A strong natural talent, aptitude, or inclination".

So when Mr. Tabloid mocks him for his aparent intellectual stupidity, I would argue that he is still a genius.

Any thoughts?

Erm, I think you may be in need of medical assistance here concerning the basis of your argument ----as stated above :p

Genius however, is not the term I would use to describe the :mad:

Cheers, y'all.
