    I feel I've never had a decent intellectual conversation in my life and I'm nearly 30.

    I had a conversation with this guy (Richard was maybe his name) who was convinced we can replace all our power needs with "windmills".

    But you must admit, therefore, to having had several indecent intellectual conversations. Surely they were fun?

    You should try talking to yourself its intellectually stimulating, self defeating, and a practice in self reflection all at the same time!
    I hope the voices stop soon, their driving me crazy!

    Vast floating Windmill arrays that are housed on wave power collectors.

    In the ocean, no less.

    You see our electricity output(I forget the exact figure) is around 1% of the global scale, and our electricity bills are going up all the time because of multi taxable global warming claims. Huge places like Russia basically just pump out energy into the cold air and the greenies want us to undertake costly inefficient logistical fantasies, all the while ignoring the potential of the cheap thermonuclear option.

    What about it? The scariness of the word "nuclear waste"? Or the reality of it?

    to dispose of it safely. encased in cement and underground the only option? would it survive a big earthquake? we can't shoot it into the sun, that is way to expensive and maybe even impossible. so?

    Definitely not, thats total overkill.

    What? How many sieverts will even get out of a deep burial without cement? How many people have contracted any symptoms from buried nuclear waste? Would you bury a body 20 feet under, encased in concrete just incase you may contract a disease?

    This is what I mean by separating the fear and myth from actual Physical effects, and the history of the said effects.

    there is a huge difference between a decomposing body and nuclear waste. who knows what will happen in the time it takes for it to all become lead. better safe than sorry. what method is used currently anyway?

    I think you're mistaking intelligent conversation with 'supremely dull intellectual accademic conversation'.

    I enjoy intelligent conversation frequently and it never involves discussing electricity or windmills or nuclear what everrrrs. Those are my everyday friends whom I see regularly in the flesh.

    Meanwhile, I have other friends who I see less often, due to distance who I pigeon hole for normal and niche conversations.

    If I wish to discuss science theory I have a 'science' friend, whom I have phoned at midnight before now to discuss a theory of mine.

    If I wish to discuss philosophy/spirituality I have two other friends(one is my mum) with whom to discuss that.

    If I wish to discuss new scientific advancements, I discuss those with my ex bf.

    Political/social matters with ex hub.

    and so on.

    I would say finding intelligent conversation in a pub is hard, but I have never found it so. I guess you just need to be able to know what 'intelligent' looks like in a persons demeanor and presentation and so when 'mingling' you target those people. But as my niche list shows, people have strengths in various areas. Can't dismiss someone as unintelligent just because their strength is different to yours.

    how can you judge "thick" or "clever" everyone's good at something, some people have quite useless talents, others have great talents that are rarely on show, and others have high IQ, but does that mean they're clever, what if they are completely confused by anything related to science but are amazing at maths, does that make them clever, average or thick??

    maybe were all just thick because no one is above average at everything, i mean no one, there will always be something someone isn't good at and something some one is good at.
