"The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt."

-- Bertrand Russell

I have to incorporate the word "cocksure" into my vocabulary 😅

@fribbledom It was in the book I just read and it definitely stood out when I came across it.

@fribbledom
The tiers of intelligence:
-too dumb to know you're dumb
-regular dumb
-smart enough to know you're dumb
-regular smart
-dumb enough to think you're smart
-smart enough to know you're still dumb

@machado @fribbledom "you're dumb. I mean, not that dumb. Just regular dumb."
