are hounds smarter than your average bear? want opinions

this post is likely to get me in trouble from just the question itself, but i'm wondering if there's a correlation between intelligence and curiosity/passion for food. of course intelligence can be defined in various ways, blah blah blah, but i find that the comments from hounds are generally good ones.

lately i've been spending most of my online board time split between chowhound and a pregnancy board, and i've realized it's so much more of a pleasure to browse the posts on this board. on my pregnancy board, my head hurts from reading through horrible grammar and particularly lack of punctuation. and it seems the commentary and questions from posters usually make no sense, add little to the discussion, or don't make me think "interesting!" or "good question" like they do here.

of course all boards have their share of people causing drama or not adding any value, but i'd say we all have a great community here compared to others i've seen!

any thoughts?
