And who is that "I", that "has" soul/mind,
mr. suckazoid?
Any idea?

What is that entity that posesses the soul and mind?

And you suck and suck and suck.
And ALL you do is suck,
seemingly utterly unable to do anything else.

Is universe an entity,
engaged in conscious act of training,
the rats and the rest of it?

Then YOU have proven the existance of god, sucker.

Man this shit is below the grade the real monkey ass produces.

What idiotic shopping lists are you bragging about,
sucker?

> or drive when they go shopping,

And YOU drove this whole planet to extinction,
you little sub-moronic parasite, with all your
driving and exploiting.

And you claim you are smarter than a monkey ass?

On what basis?

Yes, programmed to oblivion,
with all these ugly dominating and opressing concepts
of "higher" and "lower".

You see, mr. suckazoid,
YOU are the lowest grade there is.
It can not get any lower.
Not possible.

>   Mind over the machine is sorta my view of IQ. 

Yes, OVER is the keyword here.
Manipulation, opression and exploitation.
Is all you know.

Your idiotic CPU is programmed with 10 basic concepts,
9 of which is violence, opression and domination based.
And the 10th one is idiotic, guilt creating,
"family value".

Fear and guilt.
That is how you tick, suckazoid.
