I'd rather have a conversation with the scientist who may embarrass me than with the body builder. I don't know if that makes me smart or dumb, but I'm certain it would be more enjoyable.

I've told people when I walk into a room I want to be the dumbest person there. Sadly, very few actually get it.

If you're the smartest person in the room, then you're in the wrong room.

Wife had a professor with 3 doctorates that loved to tell the class how little he knew. Really impressed her (plus he was a good prof).

If you are arguing with a stupid person and think you should or could change someone else's mind - you are the stupid one.

Old saying--
You don't feel when you're dead, just the people around you feel bad. It's the same when you're stupid.

Can't remember which movie that I seen recently that this came from, but the conversation stuck in my head:

"He is very intelligent. He has at least 7 degrees"
"A rectal thermometer has even more degrees - and look where you put that"
