my girlfriend is in baghdad, a fire fighting contractor working for the army and the iraqi people. this is a role reversal, of sorts, but it doesnít really irk me. i know and guarantee my capabilities, and i need not physically prove them to the world for my own self-approval. in fact, iíve been pursuing a standard policy of understatementói believe it to be in my best interest for the world to habitually underestimate me. as a confirmed genius, it is easier for me to consistently trump competing colleagues when they believe me to be of only average intelligence.
