Jim wisdom #2:Genius and Douchebaggery

Saw social network last night not a bad movie.  After seeing it if half of what was depicted in the movie is true than Mark Zuckerberg is brilliant genius and a major polesmoking douchebag all in one. But, what makes me laugh is, not until the end when facebook was exploding did anyone think of getting contracts with this little shit. Think about it these were supposed to be the very people who would run fortune 500 companies and not a single one of them thought to get Zuckerberg to sign a contract with them. Which the last time I checked was business partnership 101 always get the contract protect your own ass. And Why didn't anyone show any intellegence and read the ones they were signing or have a lawyer explain them. It isn't like they couldn't afford a lawyer.
       It did raise some important thoughts with me like if you are genius level smart and getting a 1600 on your SAT I think qualifies Zuckerberg to be called a genius. Does that give such a person the right to have no social graces or manners? Does that give this person automatic right to be a complete asshole cause they can blame the lack of social graces and manners on the fact their brain works differently than an average person. Hell fucking no, regardless of how smart someone is doesn't excuse douchbaggery. For example Einstien is considered to be one of the greatest minds of the 20 century and the dude was a complete laidback average guy. Why is it smart people can use their intellegence as an excuse for their actions and behavior. When in truth they are a douchebag and are angry because they are so smart no one wants anything to do with them. So if you are blessed and cursed with the gift of being a genius remember that there are other people in this world and there will be those that will mistreat you but, there will be just as many if not more that will stand in aww of who and what you are.
