Are you smarter than everyone else?

I know I'm not, but I've read a startling number of claims to that effect in recent days. One poster actually claimed to be so smart that no one else could understand his posts. Since only one person can actually be smarter than everyone else, there should really be only one "yes" vote.

I believe Clint said "A man's gotta know his limitations".As GS suggests there are a fair few here who would do well to heed that advice.

I thought about being humble but why bother?

I'm pretty darn smart {1670 PSAT score, that's higher than 85% of HS sophomores, FYI}, but I realise that there are people out there that would make me look dumb.

This will soon be a moot point. Clever German scientists at the Max-Planck Institute are developing an anti-stupidity pill that apparently, when tested on mice and fruit-flies, eliminated dumbness in these creatures altogether.

Everyone will soon be able to take anti-stupidity pills until all stupidness has been eliminated and everyone is as smart as everyone else.
