I hope it was on purpose that an anti-intellectual statement was begun with "I know nothing ..."

I know nothing about Argentina, but quite a lot about intellectuals.

Hahaha, Gamal,  +100 !!!!

It would be nice if this forum could support surveys which could be potentially monetized. We can do for example cluster analysis of known figures to map it to features describing different individuals at this forum as a simple exercise. 

What is the proper definition of the intellectual? Are the figures below considered intellectuals? 
  1. Noam Chomsky (I bet marsden believes this is the case) 
  2. Jimmy Carter
  3. Tailor Swift / Madonna / bimbos from Hollywood 
  4. Vlad Putin (Cuch) 
.... please extend your list below

Your definition of intellectuals has very low bar, Cuch. I didn't mean people who are better with numbers and programming than you are. We need to restrict this list somehow.
