Well I for one am sure he isn't. And when Bonta Kun said "romance for MEAT", I'm sure he meant the meat that Luffy is always eating- off the bone.

I'm well-aware. But there's another kind of meat that can be eaten off the bone. Just pointing out a poor choice of words.

Luffy's IQ is like below 110
that's what makes him so cool because he acts out without thinking (most of the time..)

Average IQ was around 110 @ my school and actually, if your IQ was any lower than that you were considered below normal in the grade.
So I considered luffy to be below average (cultural difference? area difference?) most likely under 110 for sure and around 70-80. Or maybe he is a genius and has an IQ of 140+

Edit: The country IQ is around 106 based on web search, so the average must have been out of norm(higher by around 4) when i took the standardized paper IQ test in school (grade 11). Top score was 142, and I'm nowhere close to that.

what nonsense is this? having IQ lower then 110 makes you act without thinking ?

Sorry for my ignorance,
I was generalizing it in my area's standard of below average
And I honestly believe IQ does not reflect one's true intelligence

So if i rephrase that,
Luffy's IQ is prob below average, maybe even as low as 70-

70? I don't think Luffy is mentally retarded...

Hm, mine is around 124-125... I act on impulse more than anything else.

btw, ESC- get rid of your font. It is annoying.

And an IQ test does not test how fundamentally 'smart' a person is at all- the test itself is flawed

And luffy is the most rational irrational person in the whole anime.

Well we covered Luffy's aspects on love and intelegence. How about we look into his aspects on crying sadness, vengeful anger, and horrific fear? Reason is because I have a complaint about him in movie 6. He was very angry in losing his nakama to Baron Omatsuri and Carnation Lily and by the end of the movie when his nakama was free Luffy just smiled right before the end credits.

< WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

If it were me on the situation I'd transform into the tiger hulk and wreak havoc starting by brutally murdering those plant versions of the Baron's once dead crew then I slash Omatsuri's arm (with the shoulder holding Carnation Lily). If Carnation Lily decides to turn monstrous, I would use roukishi moves to slash at it's head. To finish the battle with Omatsuri, I would use a Super Nova of the elements (fire, terra, lightning, floral, water, wind, ice, metal, time, space, light, and darkness). After that battle I'd be greeted by the imprisoned strawhats especially Nami. I'd hug her and I would cry in her breasts after witnessing experiencing the horrors that had happened to her and everyone else.

Now why wouldn't Luffy cry after such horrors had happen? Most people just can't get over any horror they experience. i.e.: ending of Apocolypse Now.

Well, Luffy as a character is like the embodiment of the phrase "happy-go-lucky", so long as there is a good side to a situation he's always smiling.

Or maybe it's a psychological thing, he's sociopathic or whatever the condition is. Maybe as long as he has his "comrade" figures, he is content no matter the state they are in. Think of it like a child with a securtiy blanket; it can become the most tattered and tainted string of clothe ever to have graced human hands and they'll still hold on to it like it was a part of them... but you try and physically seperate that "comfort-object"...

While I'd really rather not imagine it, I could imagine Luffy in a situation where all his crew is dead and gone and he's still conversing animatly with the corpses or what-not.

But so long as none are taken permanently, Luffy is fine.

Yeah but I bet he never considered how his nakama felt after experiencing those horrors Omatsuri put them through as they're not the kind of "security blankets" that are emotionless (emphasis on emotionless). I would have wanted to see Nami crying after all the suffering she had to put up with instead of cutting it short to the credits. Some security blankets are as delicate as newborn kittens and need special care. If Nami were my security blanket, I'd cry if she became tattered so much (physical and/or emotion wise).

Well, if you'd care to take notice, I was trying to draw a metaphor between the physical tatterings of the "security blanket" and the mental/emotional stress of a person.

Nami crying, even after such "torturous" treatment, is just unlikely given her character. Nami has a strong personality for a person in general and it would take a lot to really make her break down.
Plus, and I've said it before somewhere, you know she's been through worse what with half her life wasted under Arlong.

The things people will use for a good Doujin...

I guess you have a point. BTW, what's a Doujin?
