What do you think. I think it is a curse to be smart because then people don't understand how you think or any ... i don't know the words... any thing about people I guess like the way it's acceptable to talk or act. It bothers me and I thought someone might think the same or tell me other wise like there point of view. EVER one tells me "oh your lucky that you are smart" NO it's the opposite of. Also I think you are more likely to be sad or depressed

With no intelligence, we would be back in the stone age, lacking all modern conveniences.

One must weigh the problems of exclusion from social functions with the quality of life that intelligent people have provided, building upon those who came before.

Not what I meant, I meant being smarter over the average person and the average person doesn't understand the way you think

I might add to my argument the following. The simple fact of intelligence does not imply the lack of social functioning.

My cousin is a nuclear physicist. Even people at that level can be fun and interesting.
