Brain power important to be something in one's life.
Debate Rounds (3)
1. Communication skills are far more important ( http://www.businessnewsdaily.com... ).
2. Intellect can be misused or misappropriated. It is not also any form of omniscience and can be completely wasted on useless pursuits.
3. Your intellectual ability wanes. (http://www.sciencedaily.com...)
1. "You can't do anything while braindead!", well yes, that is true, but that doesn't make sense to assert since basic cognitive ability (retardation) definitely does not open you "achieve anything in this world."
2. "Can you succeed without thinking on something?", yes you can as many inventions have been invented purely by accident: http://www.businessinsider.com...
Both interpretations covered.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro created a debate that was a bit disingenuous, switching from a notion of "high" brainpower's importance, to just brains in general being necessary to live. The latter is not a fair debate resolution, so I can't prefer it. And Con presented justification why higher brain power isn't all that important necessarily. I'm not sure, though, whether Con really negated the resolution per se, and showed that it was NOT important. But what I am sure on is that Con's S&G was sufficiently better to award S&G points. So I'm nulling arguments, though I lean at least somewhat in favor of Con, and award S&G. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
