    Get all your frustrations over people out by telling us about them.

    For example...I have a friend who isn't mentally challenged. They have an IQ of around 150. However, if they are faced with something that doesn't do what they want it to with the push of a single button, they will never understand how to use it.

    ...now remember, they're not mentally challenged. They just cannot use anything that requires you press more than a single button. They can garden fine. They can write and shop fine if they're paying cash. They can live comfortably with their job and do it fine. But they can't use phones, microwaves, computers, cars, self-checkout lanes at the store, etc. I don't know how much of it is "I don't know how" and how much is "I don't want to know how", though.

    But when we get into it, I just want to wring their neck. You can point directly at what they need to do, but they won't be able to do it themselves unless you puppeteer their hands to do it.

    A 19 year old woman who lives with her parents because she apparently cannot use any form of technology that requires more input than 'push one button, everything you want done is done'. Her parents can't even get her to understand. They are about as proficient in tech as I am.

    Oh, will I be so worried if she ever gets pregnant. I mean, considering her difficulty with technology I'm pretty sure that if she ever has to care for anything she'll just call the hospital 23 hours a day to ask "how do I tell if the baby burped?" "how do I know when the baby poops?" "how long does it take for the baby to become 3 years old?" "How do I get warm milk?". And I seriously cannot doubt that would happen.

    No offense, but it might be more merciful for her not to have to care for children is she has this much difficulty functioning.

    An IQ of 150 if you combine them together, right?....right?

    I got a little bit annoyed of my 20 year old little brother yesterday for not seeing the difference between a car engine and a gearbox.
    But that might be me being picky.

    an IQ of 150 is useless if you are this inept.
    Social IQ of 5.
