Good result. Ask CarefulNow, he's another smart dude like me.

What do you think makes someone intelligent or 'smart'? The first point is up for contention at any rate.

I agree with ConservativeAmerican here. If you just believe you are smart without questioning yourself now and then, you're probably dumber than you think.

"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

The problem of dumbness is not that people are dumb, but that they insist upon being dumb. This is of the ego, something which wouldn't exist were we not in competition with each other.

No competition = no dumbness.

Think about it.

If there are no stupid people we wouldn't have anyone to laugh at.

In other words, if you doubt yourself you're dumb.

I have a stick in each hand. I perceive this as 3 sticks.
I say "look mum I have 3 sticks".
Mum replies "no dear, you have 2 sticks".
I say "no mum, this is 3 sticks".
Mum says "okay dear, no need to doubt yourself. I wouldn't want you to be dumb."

Look, no offense, but before you comment on dumbness, you should probably look up how to spell it.

I'm pretty sure he was writing about himself, but I can't be sure.
