LMNOP:

How long have you been in DC that you actually expect Metro might fix an escalator?

I've been in DC since August, and I think they might have made the escalator worse because it wasn't even on during lunch.

And I hope you don't have to take the red line because it flooded around Union Station last summer after some heavy storms.

I take it everyday, and I'm really looking forward to that.

Also, I use to always give my change to homeless people back home, but the panhandlers in DC are ridiculous.  This one guy by freedom plaza tried to tell me he was a drug and alchohal counselor, and he was clearly a crack head.  He handed me lunch menus and said these resturaunts supported some "DC Homeless Shelter and Counseling Center."  The audacity of these people is ridiculous.

Sorry to drag on, but at Smithsonian metro stop have you ever watched the guys handing out maps?  They give you a map, tell you where to go then hit you up for a donation to some Battered Women's Shelter.  I sat there waiting for a friend once and the guy probably made $50 in 30 minutes, unbelievable.

You should have seen it fifteen years ago before they cleaned it up. They used to follow you down the street.

I've only given to one of those bums before. Last summer I was walking down Prospect one morning and a drunk was asking for money saying he was trying to get a fresh start. I lauged from a distance as I was heading towards him. He started singing, "Need money for beer. Honesty is the best policy. Need money for beer. Want to get drunk." I went into the store and bought him an OE 40.

SAT doesn't translate into IQ.  IQ is supposed to measure someone's god-given ability to problem-solve, think critically, etc.  The SAT is designed to test one's knowledge of specific facts, more or less.

it's all a bunch of *&^% anyway.  IQ correlates to someone's overall intelligence pretty well, but just because one scores poorly on it doesn't mean that they are stupid, just as a high score doesn't necessarily mean that someone's really smart.  after all, it's a multiple choice test usually....
