A recent silly poll had people voting on the most influential living intellectuals in the world out of a selected group of 100 eggheads.

The top three have been announced:

1. Noam Chomsky
2. Umberto Eco
3. Richard Dawkins

A clean sweep for atheism!

Now if only:
*two of them weren't abrasive and obnoxious...
*the world honored public intellectuals the same way it does ath-uh-letes...

Then... I don't know where I was going with this anymore... My urban light-rail of thought was derailed by a parked SUV of Improbability. Somehow I think it ended in my being elected Benevolent Dictator of Earth.

Wait wait wait. I go around saying that I will soon be elected benevolent dictator of the world...I kid you not... am I going to have to share this title now?? I mean, you're super so I wont mind, but just to clarify you know? Or have I unknownly being impeached? Has someone being snoopying around my cigar box again?? So so confused right now... Oh by the way, Noam Chomsky is my hero, as are the rest of the pol. sci geeks...*as I stare blankly at the stack of pol. sci. books I have to read..*... delirious..lack sleep. Gotta go..


Oh.. since I am anonymous.... it's Raquel, the robotdiscowhore from myspace.
