    Question What is a WIS?

    Sorry for my ignorance, but I keep seeing this (term??) a lot around this forum and I can't seem to figure out what it means Anyway I went ahead and checked it on acronymfinder.com and I found "Watch idiot savant" ? Not sure if that could be it... hmm

    Exactly! An Idiot that buys unneccesary watches, when it is enough with only one!
    The Savant (knowing, Fr) is that he knows that he is an Idiot!

    I still think the best definition is, "wife is screaming".

    To quote something I googled... "Dustin Hoffman made idiot-savants famous in the Hollywood movie "Rain Man." He played the role of a mathematical genius able to keep track of cards at the casino, yet unable to go to the bathroom alone or to make simple decisions about what clothes to wear or foods to eat. Modern science cannot explain this phenomenon. " Idiot Savants have an IQ around 25. Savant is French for knowledgeable or wise. The term Idiot Savant is sometimes associated with Autism, many people with that condition demonstrate amazing ability in one narrow area.

    huh? only one is enough? what about a G-Shock for the gym, a ABC for running, a diver for the hot tub, a dressy chrono for driving the sunday car, a handwind for the date, a tritium for the movies, a gold one to pass on to the kids, a ......

    :oops: sorry for the WIS rant.
