The cognitive gap between myself and the average role player does make them seem retarded sometimes, but presumably they are just average.

It's good you see how much smarter I am than most people. I didn't expect anyone else to pick up on that.


I can relate to this, not just in role playing, but everywhere.

Yes, there is a cognitive gap. Only not in the direction you think.


I'll admit I was thinking of a linear chart. Did you have an S curve in mind?

There's a directional element to the phenomenon known as the "cognitive gap"?... Hm. Could be.


I'm very familiar with the practical end of that - apparently my brain works in nonstandard ways. So I usually end up with a sideways gap or something, I guess.

Cognitive... spark gap? Sounds like a devisor to me! Massive temporary boosts of mental power, a.k.a. devisor moods.

A cognitive spark gap might be a fun devisor item. I imagine it as a tazer that induces a devisor mood in whoever it zaps.

And we're only peripherally on topic. IRC roleplaying using modified Mutants & Masterminds rules set, which Tensai is working on the modifications so they can go back to Hard RP from the current Soft RP, not that all aspects of Soft RP would go away, but there will be times they want to use the Hard RP to resolve conflicts. That's the topic. Not the mental abilities, or lack thereof, of various and sundry roleplayers.

With a chart of that quality this seems more like the dumb guy saying "uh... no ur stupid!" in a hasty half cocked reply because he feels insulted but doesn't have what it takes to actually come back. Rolling Eyes

Umm, I know trollo likes to troll, but can all of us try to tone down the ad hominem arguments? No matter how funny?

I know, I'm not exactly innocent of all charges here, but this board is remarkably civil for an internet forum, and I'd like to keep it that way.

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here until Thursday, try the veal,

You sap all the fun out of this. I was sure to get at least a hitler analogy and some some quasi racism out of this one too.

But it's not an ad hominem argument! I have nothing but the utmost respect for my compatriot, and don't deny anything he says, I'm just pointing out a possible solution to the logical conundrum he presented! Very Happy

I shall try to tone it down.

And I'd want to see some reports of genocide before I compared someone to Hitler. Just saying.

I never really expect someone to bring Hitler into a conversation. It's the kind of thing I have to maneuver myself into so I can bring it up. Then I have to bait some hate by taking his side using political speak to make it sound logical. Always a fun time.

[1] OF COURSE I sap all the fun out of it. You've never heard of No Fun Guy?

[2] And I think you *can* count on absurd Hitler analogies, and Straw Men, and anything else trope-y this thread is likely to contain.

[3] Here's my official Hitler analogy: your painting is completely unworthy of being placed in a museum. Very Happy
