Brain Teasers
If you could take your eyes off of Charlize Theron in our November issue ("The Education of Charlize Theron"), you might have learned something about intelligence. But several readers seemed to feel that there's more to measure in life than an IQ.

It is always reassuring when Esquire flexes its intellectual muscle and delivers a truly outstanding literary effort. But an entire issue devoted to genius! The pieces on fusion technology (“A Voyage to the Sun,” by Michael Paterniti) and Ben Harper (“The Music Man Goes Home”) and “The Esquire Twenty-one” were wonderful to read.

In capturing the images for Sean Flynn's story about last year's murders in Yosemite National Park, photographer Karen Kuehn found herself treading on some very familiar ground. "I've spent my entire life in and out of Yosemite, and I used to be a park ranger there in the early eighties," says Kuehn, whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Life, and Fast Company as well as in numerous advertising campaigns.

Trend Watch Not since Jacques Derrida has deconstruction been so trendy; case in point, these sport coats from (left to right) Geoffrey Beene ($275), Joseph Abboud ($595), and Ermenegildo Zegna ($1,980). Unlike your typical suit, in which the wool is woven, these are knit, on a special loom.

ON THE SILVER SCREEN, robot sidekicks save the day with holographic distress calls from galactic princesses and emergency repairs to X-wing fighters damaged by Death Stars. In real life, though, expectations are much lower. Ever since Westinghouse showed off its faux talking cyborg at the 1939 World’s Fair, designers have aspired to create a chunky contraption that can mow the lawn, vacuum the house, and fetch beers.

I AM A VERY GOOD POKER PLAYER. Sit me down with a regular Monday-night game packed full of college buddies or work pals and I guarantee I’ll win. I’m good. The question is, am I great? I am a member of a “private” poker house—an underground casino in the middle of the financial district in New York City—called the M Club.

I love skiing. I do not love ski resorts: The idea of sloshing through a cafeteria line in parka and boots to consume inedible frozen pizzas and bad chili is as odious to me as nibbling on rancid sandwiches at an overcrowded beach in the Hamptons.

Those who’ve only seen the take-me-seriously, I’m-on-cable Geraldo, hiding his genius for vulgarity under an ill-fitting thinking cap, can’t appreciate what a lonely visionary he was in his prime.</p>

THE PERSONAL GOLF UNIVERSE IS PRETTY SIMPLE. You pare your world down to the three people you can most easily put up with, gather them in the one place you all want to be, and the four of you walk around. As you do, you blow one another shit, slap a hand on one another’s backs when needed, hammer balls, and slather on the stories.

I'm zeroed in on the golden simplicity of going hard at it while the rest of the world sleeps.</p>

THE LIVING SHALL ENVY THE DEAD One commonly prescribed remedy for the black death was piercing your testicles.

IT IS EASY TO HIDE IN THE HIGH SIERRAS, to disappear in the shadows of the steep granite canyons and the bristled canopies of sugar pines and redwoods. Four million tourists a year traipse through these mountains and never see the felons and drunkards and bail jumpers, the drifters and dropouts, who lose themselves in plain sight.

WHILE CANCER OF THE HYDRAULICS is not a prospect most guys like to contemplate, the fact is, we are all vulnerable below the belt. This year, more than sixty thousand men will be diagnosed with urinary-bladder or testicular cancer. If you think it can't happen to you, if you think cancer is a disease for smokers and exterminators, women and the elderly, you're wrong.

IT’S LIKE CLOCKWORK: Each morning, you rise out of bed, shuffle to the can, lean over the bowl, and go. But one morning, something happens. It burns—no, burns is not the word—it feels as if you’re squeezing out razor blades. You, my friend, have urethritis, a urinary-tract infection of the urethra.

SO . . . THE FORESKIN. You’ve heard of it, maybe even seen one once, briefly, and recoiled in shock and bafflement. If you’re a U. S.-born male, you likely gave yours up long ago, and smegma's just another word for nothing left to lose. Funny when you think about it, though, ain’t it?

<p>I got a call from my grandmother last summer. She is eighty-eight and was curious about something: She wanted my analysis of The Sixth Sense's phenomenal box-office domination. Now, my grandmother is as sharp as a steak knife. One time we were watching Jeopardy! together and she nailed the correct answer to a question; the answer was "Who are the Spice Girls?"</p>

<p>We now live in an age where motives are everything. Why don’t we ask about the facts? Why don’t we examine merits as opposed to motivations? I believe it is heroic to be willing to go against the grain. I'm reading an inspirational book called Halftime, about an individual who goes through a midlife crisis and determines that he is going to live the second half of his life for significance, since he lived the first half of his life for success.</p>

<p>THE MOTORCYCLE LAY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POND; this was fact and this was legend. How it came to be there was open to speculation, for neither the motorcycle nor the pond was property of anyone remembered. The pond, sinister, leech-mucky, and bottomless with sludge, beckoned with dragonflies, jumping fish, and a weeping willow.</p>

Why the decorative stitching? Because it’s a little more manly than bells. Why handmade? Because cheap shoes can make you bleed. Why the organic colors? Because you’ll find they bring a confident sophistication to a gray flannel suit, for example, while somehow making it more casual.

FORD (THIS IS PRE-TAURUS, MIND YOU) WAS MAKING the finest police cruisers in the country, the General kept putting out nondescript Cheviacs, and while Lee Iacocca had saved Chrysler, it was only by foisting upon the public the K-car, which had all the automotive style of a toaster.

THE BABY DOESN’T LIKE HIS FLAK JACKET. It’s Kevlar, the lightest material capable of stopping a large-caliber bullet, but it’s awfully hot, and it makes it hard for the little guy to sit up. Which is just as well, because a sitting baby, the babyproofer says, is a sitting duck.
