Both beings are known for being smart, there are many historical figures of both. But who do you think are smarter? The British or the Asians? And remember this, both have fell in the influence of both rock and rap music, so do not bring that discussion here.

Don't stop till you get enough

This is... random. I'd say the British, because of Steven Hawking.




Jul 8 2008, 9:13 pm KrayZee Post #3



Not that random, because I have asked my Asian friends and they preferred the British. Then I have asked my British friends and they preferred Asians. Which brought up this discussion.

It depends on how you define "smarter." Like, which population has an overall higher IQ? Which one has better education system? Which one is more knowledgeable in the math and sciences? The possibilities are endless.

... The most retarded question ever... honestly. Why would you think one is better then the other? Asians probably have a better education system, and I haven't seen anything at all to signify that Britain has superior IQ to anyone else.

Ahem, do not jump to conclusions. You obviously know nothing about the British.

Fail, Krayzee. Fail.
America has the most scientific/technological achievements within the last fifty years, and with the education system here, it's quite an accomplishment. AMERICA SHUD BE #1. AMERICANS R SMART. Or, wait, no, the Soviet Union! They kept up with the US up until 1990's! WTF? WY ISNT RUSSIA ON DAT LIST?

Fail, Krayzee. Fail. Neither Asians nor Brits have, for the last hundred years or so, done anything amazing or unique. What makes you think either is really smarter than the other?

Britain is a 2nd-rate at everything - at nuclear power, at economic power, international standing, military power, scientific discoveries. Yes, there have been great British people, but I don't say that's because they're British but because they're European, and Europeans had created a good system for scientific and technological development three hundred years ago. Brits made a slightly better than the standard, which is why they have a bit more famous scientists then most other countries. Einstein was German, though, and he takes the cake.

Asians? Japan is the only respectable Asian country right now (sorry, MA - just my opinion). China.. I mean, you KIDDING? With a population of 1.3 billion, China isn't doing anything amazing. Chinese land is being ruined - Smog levels in major cities are a catastrophe, and land is rapidly undergoing desertification in the north-west portions, and spreading. India... Not so much on the smog, but still, with a population of more than a billion, I'd expect more. And Indian economic growth is slowing, too.

My point is, there is no 'smartest race' when you regard each race with all of its affiliated countries.

You know, the United States is no where near in the discussion and the United States is a criticized country for being 'stupid' by Australia and European countries. I'm not calling ourselves stupid, but why the fuck did you ever brought that up? Look, there are excellent Americans that may have invented the light bulb, automobiles, airplanes and such but we're a criticized nation and with new technology, people are becoming more lazier by the decade. And to be honest Centreri, there are more fluent English speakers in China than there is in the United States. And that is judging by statistics. And second of all, the United States is after all a former colony from Britain.

So I fail for not adding the option of the United States and Russia? The two superpowers rivaling each other in the cold war? That's not the point...

From honesty, I actually get angered by other nations calling the US stupid but there is no need for your random argument here.

.. You're kidding, right? You cannot be stupid enough to miss my argument there. My point is that THERE IS NO ONE SMARTER THEN ANYONE ELSE AS VERIFIABLE BY ANYTHING OTHER THEN STUDIES ON MEMBERS OF RACES BROUGHT UP IDENTICALLY. COUNTRIES DON'T MATTER. ENGLISH AREN'T SMARTER THAN GERMANS OR FRENCH. ASIA ISN'T EVEN A COUNTRY. WTF IS THIS THREAD ABOUT?

Look. Let's just say that this one arguably the most retarded thread ever made, in part because for its idiocy, it's not even funny. Okay? And we all know I don't throw around that award easily. This thread is retarded. Your not seeing my point for WHY it's a retarded thread is sad.

Not only are the two up there not equivalent, ie COUNTRY versus CONTINENT, but the most glaring difference between the people is GOVERNMENT AND CULTURE type, and not INNATE INTELLIGENCE. However, since the TWO PRIOR AFFECT ANY IDENTIFIER WE MAY HAVE FOR THE INNATE INTELLIGENCE, WE CANNOT CONCLUDE WHICH ARE SMARTER AT ALL.

In order for me to win more conclusively, give me arguments for both and I'll shoot them down.

Wow, it isn't judging by ethnics in general. Hell, you didn't even answer my reply. I mean really, get that into your head. Stop making randomly assumptions and thinking "OMG EVERYONE IS EQUAL AND FORCED TO BE EQUAL SO THAT MUST MEAN BRAZIL = CANADA LOLOLOLOLOL" And I'm not criticizing Brazil.

Oh and your signature reminds me, Centreri. You want the United States to fall down to its knees, yet in this topic you are calling the United States "one of the best country in the world"? Repeat your contrary please.

British. Why? Newton was British. Hawking was British. The greatest schools in the world, Cambridge and Oxford respectively, are in England.

I'm British blood(directly) but I'm not going to use that as a reason, derive it yourself.

Note: Krazy, you fail at spelling British in the poll option.

No. You fail for comparing a country to a continent, for failing to identify what you mean as 'smart', whether this is a scientific, political or other issue amoung a dozen of other small things. It's like asking.. I can't even think of an example. I'll reiterate, if you think that your question is well-worded and all, you should really never post polls again.

I then assumed that your main question was which are innately more intelligent, and then started bashing that question because of how impossible it is to answer it.

As for your second part, what makes you think I want the US down to its knees? Have I ever implied that? What I want is for the US to stop being the sole superpower in the world and pushing everyone around. And pushing aside international law.

Asians tend to be group-oriented, and their intelligence comes from becoming, through group pressure, extremely good at skills, which they then use in culturally predefined or acceptable ways to increase their honor and save face.

Brits possess, individually, razor cunning, which they use to create new things, or concoct elaborate schemes, or forge ahead and explore, and tend to want to increase their understanding and deadliness.

Asians tend more toward balance and acceptance; Brits tend more toward risk and novelty.

The US has vastly more resources than the UK, so comparing them on the basis of achievements is not exactly fair.

Asia is an unfair comparison to Britain. Compared to most other continents, they have vast natural resources.



None.

Jul 9 2008, 12:27 am pneumatic Post #20



That's why I'm not comparing them based on achievements. I'm making the comparison based on culture.

Of course there are exceptions, but the exceptions tend to differ from the cultural norm, I think.
