Do women hate intelligent Men .......................Page 6 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Dear Deranged,

My son got really ticked off that I took so much time to explain my answer,but for the benefit of those who still don't get it, I'll walk you through it again. Let's give them names shall we for clarity.

Let's call the defendant Bob, his wife Carol, and his brother-in-law Ted.

For purposes of this demonstration, let's say that Bob also has a sister called Alice, to rule out any other "suspects" as the brother-in-law..

So the first thing is that Bob's brother in law could be:

a) Carol's brother Ted (Bob's wife's brother)
b) Alice's brother Ted (Bob's sister's husband)

Now, since our bro-in-law has a sister who plays a significant role in all of this, that rules out B, since we don't have anybody to be Ted's sister in that scenario, and the sister is a vital part of the equation (ooooh back to a math problem - well, logic problem actually - I used to suck at those - I must be channeling the late Jeff LeBar, my best friend and problem solver extraordinaire!).

Have I lost anybody yet? Resolved: that the brother-in-law is the wife's brother, NOT the sister's husband.

Next, the bro-in-law's only sister must be Carol, wife of our defendant Bob.

Therefore her husband is none other than our friend Bob.

If Bob is the father of the judge's son then the judge must be Carol, his wife. Or some freak who has made 17 appearances on Maury trying to find her baby's daddy.

Your first mistake is believing that your brother-in-law's wife is your sister-in-law. Your sister-in-law is your brother's wife or your husband's sister. Period. Your brother-in-law's sister is either your wife or no relation whatsoever. Except in a few counties that don't have Internet access and won't mind if we have a little fun at their expense.

Now if you really want to get confused I'll explain about how the 1st & 2nd cousins and the "removed" thing works - genealogy is my LIFE!

You guys are just too much fun for words. Guess I'm going to have to arrange that pilgrimage to MacMillan Ave. after all to worship at the home of my first big love Burton.

Before you all jump down my throat yes I know the Nellie McLung theatre was renamed after him even though if she came back from the dead she'd be able to drive and he can't with 3 DUI convictions. And I know that in ill-advised moments he's said some unfavourable things about Winnipeg. But when I was 15 years old, and didn't have a friend in the whole world, I called his hotel room when the Guess Who was back in town to play the CNE and I said "I don't know if you remember me. We met last fall; my name is Darlene." and he said "sure I remember you". Bear in mind that I was flat-chested jail bait at the time, okay?

For ten years I thought the song "she might have been a nice girl" was about me; I learned from Burton after the Junos in 1979 that he was about his ex but he also said it had been his favourite song at the time. See really he just THINKS it was about Janet/Janice whatever - my influence on him was soooooo subtle - but really that's MY song.

And when he married a woman who'd only known him for a few months and had not been a fan back in the day, I gathered up 10 years worth of clippings and gave them to the guy who made the introductions as a wedding present for Cheryl - passing the torch, as it were.

To bring this post back on topic - intelligence per se aside I must admit that I am HUGELY attracted to a guy with musical talent - especially piano players! Daddy played the piano until his stroke when I was 12 - he had me on Tiny Talent Time when I was 4 - and I've been "singing for my supper" ever since (figuratively, not literally).

Truth is that one guy I was completely head over heels crazy mad in love with - I have no idea how smart he was - we were both Scorpios - sparks flew when we were in the same room - even when our respective spouses were around. I at least got some great material for a song out of the experience!

At the end of the day I don't think we have any control over who we fall in love with; our only choice is what we do about it. Especially if they don't love us back - or will even entertain the possibility of speculating about the potential for considering a hypothetical attempt to ascertain whether we can give them what they NEED even if we're not what they think they're looking for. I can lose the weight (you know who you are) but where will you ever find another woman who holds a CANDLE to my intelligence, wit, passion, and willingness to let your prove your theories about the G spot (well okay that last one is pretty easy... )

I really need to stop drinking coffee in the evening my circadian(sp?) rhythms are all messed up - guess getting back on my medication would too
