    Compared to what ancestors? Like the last few generations that are over the hill now?

    In regards to the OP, it depends on what you're comparing yourself too. I'm a lot smarter than the average 17 year old, so I would say I'm smart.

    Re: Stupid or Smart?

    Honestly I will come right out and admit I am stupid. Not in an academic sense, but rather a social sense. I continuously try too hard with friends, and most of the time I will not even really notice if a girl is talking to me because she likes me. Generally a friend will come over and nudge me about stuff like that. I have friends tell me I am one of the smartest kids they know in every area except social intelligence.

    I've never met him. Maybe he was an alien in disguise, or a prophet of some sort.

    I was thinking everyone prior to the 20th century.

    This kind of reminds me of what my teacher would do after we took a test, she would say when you finish you can get one piece of candy, either a Smarties, or a Dum Dum

    The easiest way of measuring someones intelligence is if they know when to use an apostrophe.

    I use my apostrophe when she bends over.

    He wasn't Sir Issac Newton smart, but he was smarter than the average bear. Some would say that Socrates should have taken the banishment over hemlock, although he is very clear in his dialog from the prison cell that a philosopher's ultimate goal is to enter the kingdom of God (Zeus in his case). Besides, he was in his seventies when life expectancy was far lower for the population of Athens at that time.

    EDIT: Me, I had to go back and get StillBallin's quote because I clicked the wrong button. So that's part of my shining brilliance.
