I’m usually the second smartest person in the room. Especially when I’m alone.

This reminds me of my favorite quote from the film “Broadcast News.”
(paraphrasing)

Network exec. to Holly Hunter (sarcastically) : It must be wonderful to always be the smartest person in the room.

Holly Hunter (seriously): No. It’s awful.

That’s how I feel.

Posting so I fall under this umbrella of smartness!

Thanks for the compliment!

Not to be smart, but didn’t nikipedia mean by “I do.” that she’s smart, not everyone who reads the question?

squirbel's avatar

yes. :)

Would you begrudge me a humorous moment and an attempt at modesty? /poke

Justnice's avatar

yes I think I’m smarter than everybody

I think everybody’s smarter than anybody.

@segheda: this is where our language is so interesting; that question, when read literally, cried out for the self-serving answer. She could have said, “I think that I am smart, ” to be on the safe side. Someday, if I have the energy, I might do a treatise on Fluther typos and misunderstandings. (Nice new avatar, BTW. I like the old one, also.)

I think Nobody is smarter than Everybody and Somebody is smarter than Anybody.

*segdeha – sorry; what’s it stand for, anyway?

segdeha's avatar

@gailcalled, Uh, it?

squirbel's avatar

thy name!

segdeha's avatar

Ahh, that it. Well, it’s a mystery, isn’t it? I’ll give you all 3 guesses, then I shall reveal all. (It’s not that interesting, actually.)

nikipedia's avatar

Not a typo! I was curious how people would interpret it :)

breedmitch's avatar

Guess #1:
It’s sledgehammer with the l,m,m,e,and r removed. And the d and g reversed.
(love edit!)

squirbel's avatar

but g comes before d :D

segdeha's avatar

@breedmitch, Nope.
@nikipedia, Mission accomplished!

sndfreQ's avatar

Okay so the joke is…do you spell “smart” or “it”-either way you’re wrong!
