What?

On what grounds does the interviewers make such a statement? It is simply so subjective and probably ignorant.

Well, he's been billed as "the smartest man in America" by many media outlets, the Guinness Book of World Records was going to switch the world's highest IQ title to him (but they dropped the listing), etc. Apart from the CTMU, it's kind of what he's known for whether or not it's truly the case.

Even though I'm not crazy about his theory, from what I can tell Chris Langan seems like a pretty cool guy.
"Delete your fvcking sig" -1hard

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."

I agree. He's quite personable for a genius.

Yup. Seems like a very decent person from what I can tell. The type of person you wouldn't mind hanging out with, and isn't a nerdy little guy with glasses.

Although I don't understand his writing at all. It seems to me that it just uses overly-complicated and obscure vocabulary and thus suffers from lack of clarity.

He can write very simply when he wants to. For example: http://www.megafoundation.org...
"When I see the city from my window - no, I don't feel how small I am - but I feel that if a war came to threaten this, I would throw myself into space, over the city, and protect these buildings with my body."
