Sheesh you are an ignorant c@ckgulper!
I have dyslexia. I know many in my ring that have dyslexia. Obviously your circular of friends aren't that intelligent.
That would explain your complete misunderstanding of a dyslexia brain.

Marriage has never been about "love". It has always been a breeding contract.
This "love" thing they like to push is bullshit pulled from romance novels.
And yet there is no legal requirement for a married couple to procreate. Seems to shoot that theory down.

Were your marriages arranged, BTW?

Bet you it does.

Take a straight stick. Hang a plumb bob from the middle. Measure from where you tied to the plumb bob to two points equidistant from where you hung the plumb bob string on the stick. When they measure the same, you have a right angle. Attach a round piece of flat wood centered on the point where the plumb bob string is tied to the straight stick. Mark where that hanging string bisects it. You have a one to one ratio for a right angle. From there you can scale it in any equal measurements and get a ratio. You can even put it on a fixed stand, sight along the stick to a star, and get an angle marked as a ratio. Degrees are just ratios.

Plumb bobs and sighting sticks were used long before fancy trigonometry.

Or something like that.

"Many people with learning differences of Dyslexia and ADD are capable of some extraordinary
thinking and can be extremely successful once they learn some coping strategies. This is why
we prefer to call them, more appropriately, Creative Thinkers. Some of the Creative Thinkers
strengths are:
Persistence,
Concentration,
Perception,
Vivid imagination,
Creativity,
Drive and ambition,
Curiosity,
Thinking in pictures instead of words,
Superior reasoning,
Capable of seeing things differently from others,
Love of complexity,
Simultaneous multiple thought processing,
Quickly mastering new concepts, and
Not following the Crowd.


Most people who are not dyslexic and rate low on the scale of Creative Thinking, are verbal
learners, based on word acquisition by hearing. Verbal learning is limited to the speed of a
person's speech. This auditory information goes into the conscious mind, so that the non-dyslexic
person is aware of the information.

Thinking and learning in pictures rather than words is thousands of times faster, and is
subliminal, going directly into the subconscious mind. This visual learning style is what a
Creative Thinker uses. The acquisition of information as pictures create an immense amount
of multi-dimensional information, that can be manipulated in many forms by the brain to
enable intuitive thinking, perception, and other interesting thought processes. Frequently this
learning style leads to thought delays, because of the tremendous amounts of information processed.

You would like to think so.

Marriage was only between men and women when the Constitution was written. Period. No expectation it would ever be anything else. Marriage laws are up to the individual states.

There is no Constitutional right to same sex marriage on the Federal level.

Just like gays, coming in the back door to get what they want. Even if they have to pervert the Constitution. Again, you would have to pervert the 14th amendment to even get a foot in the door on that one.

A radian is a ratio. It is derived by ratios. Sorry.

All numbers are ratios. When you apply any formula to the physical, ratios will be involved.

Facts are that people with Dyslexic have bigger brains. And most Genesis have Dyslexic.
Dyslexia - The Strange Genius Disease
Dyslexic people are intuitive, highly intelligent and creative individuals who are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. But because they think in pictures, they have troubles when it comes to letters, numbers, symbols, and written words.
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Dyslexia-The-S...
Dyslexics have a larger brain than "normal" people. It is about 10% larger in the right hemisphere.

But Lango 10% extra stupid doesn't count as content, it's a deficit.

"Ludwig van Beethoven
Beethoven's challenge was not mental, it was physiological. And more critically, it affected what could be considered his most important sense - that of hearing. At the age of 23 Beethoven started hearing strange noises - the first signs of trouble. He told few about his problem till he could hide it no more and started to use notebooks to communicate. But his music only got better. He channelled all his energy into his compositions, which became more powerful as his deafness worsened. Beethoven composed Symphony No. 9 The Choral, considered one of the greatest musical masterpieces, when he was totally deaf!"
People mistakenly consider composing while deaf some sort of miraculous feat, it's not. Composers already know what each instrument sounds like, they also know how they sound in different registers. They have spent a lot of time realizing what certain pairings of instruments sounds like. Trombones, cello, french horns, and Violas for example. Harmony and rhythms are internal. A good composer has all of the potential sounds well established in his mind. He KNOWS what the piece will sound like without hearing it. Unfortunate for Beethoven, but he had already heard his symphony well before it was performed. Actually it was probably a better experience for him as he heard it without flaw.

Tell that to the ancients who built those places. I will guarantee not a one of them had college trigonometry, or high school for that matter.

Now they may have had something similar. Built on ratios.

You may be in for a big surprise in the very near future, old timer.

It wasn't too long ago that the same argument was made about interracial marriage, old timer.

And don't think your use of the word "pervert" goes unnoticed, old timer.
