How do you measure someone's intelligence? Is it their education and the degrees that they've earned? Is it their accomplishments in their field-- especially relating to medicine and sciences? Do they lose any points by saying or thinking something massively stupid? Bill Gates, for example, thought that SPAM would be a thing of the past by now. The guy considered the father of quantum mechanics couldn't explain how a battery works. Elon Musk has earnestly proposed that we nuke Mars in an attempt to warm it up faster… And that's not even getting into the names of his children. So, the next time you're feeling like you'll never be as smart as some of the great minds of our generation… Many of those great minds are plenty dumb in their own special, unique ways just like you! Maybe stop commenting on celebrities social media posts, though-- They're never going to respond to you.
