'Nuff said. On 25 Mar 1997 01:10:03 GMT, hughsterg@aol.com (HughsterG) had a lit match tossed into the maelstrom that is his rational thought center and went off with: => => Look at the mix of characters. => => Before: 3 intellectuals and an artist. => After: 2 Intellectuals, 1 military person, and one artist. Uh, Hughster??? Uh, Wade as an INTELLECTUAL?!? Using a socially acceptable alternative to "b#####it", let me put it this way: This probably turns out to be NOT the case. But why take my opinion for it? Let's throw it open to the floor for input. What do you think, people? Could Wade be considered an intellectual?? => => Hugh Gitlin => hughsterg@aol.com => James ~~~~~ People keep telling me that I need help. I have to tell them that it's taken me this long to get it just the way I like it and I'm sure that well-meaning mental health professionals would only screw things up.

What do you think, people? Could Wade > be considered an intellectual?? Just to throw my own two cents in here, since you asked! Why can't Wade be an intellectual? I guess it all depends on your definition. IMO (not so humble), she is. She does tend to think with her heart quite a bit, but is also killer on a computer, and can come up with solutions just as quickly as the others. I'm curious as to why you think she's not. (No flames, a serious question) And, therefore, how *would* you describe her? Adding to the maelstrom, Terry

James ran this up the flagpole to see what kind of salutes it would get: [His comment on someone purposely/inadvertently referring to the character of Wade Welles as an "intellectual"] > Let's throw it open to the > floor for input. What do you think, people? Could Wade > be considered an intellectual?? ***I thought she was supposed to be "the poet." ;-) Well, she wanted to leave Maggie behind - I don't think that makes her an "intellectual", per se, but it *does* make her smart...:-D AnnieM "...'cause sometimes being a b***h is all a woman has to hang onto...;-)"

While the character (and actress!) is certainly intelligent, I don't know if I'd call her an "Intellectual"; but that's relative. To a "Homer Simpson", anyone who stayed awake through "Hamlet" is an "intellectual". (even if it was just to watch the fight scenes!) Now, I would definitely <NOT> call the Maggie Beckett character an "intellectual" (or the actress either...I've seen her in other stuff, as well as on MTV). Of course, I'm biased...Sabrina Lloyd is incredibly cute; and I readily admit I watch Sliders about 40% for her (higher if she smiles a lot!), and 60% for the show itself. But when someone who isn't a good actress replaces an excellent actor, it diminishes everything about the show. Patrick - pgrantm@juno.com ("I'm not a Maestro, but I play one on AOL.")

After all, she's well read in the fields of her interest and she's the computer expert of the bunch. As a matter of fact she is such a towering genius of a computer hacker she is able to completely defeat the security systems of operating systems from other universes. How many totally unfamiliar o.s.'s can you hack ? In addition to this we must also consider our definition of the term intellectual. I apply it to anyone we feels that thinking about things is important whether they have a good education or not. I've met serveral very smart people who had no or little formal education and a number of idiots with docterates. Bye 'Fer Now !
