There's no such thing as a proto-subgenius. You're either on the
saucer or you're in the fire. There didn't suddenly start being
subgenii in the twentieth century. These people you and Cosby are
calling protos are just people who failed at being normal. Just being
some jackoff that makes up new names for old ideas, or joined somebody
else's cult and then got blowed up, doesn't make you half a subgenius.
You're either fucking the squid or ... not.
