last time. This one's supposed to look "smart." In a related story, why does nobody ever call anyone out on calling themselves smart? I noticed there's a recent trend, particularly in comedy, of people flat out calling themselves "smart" or just overusing the word to describe anyone who references a some decidedly unintelligent thing like a reality tv personality. I've been wondering for a long time, since getting into Yale, actually--what does smart mean? I grew up thinking it meant someone with great intelligence (or a kid talking back to an adult) but now I know: it means a dude with some mean glasses and phantom math etchings floating around him.
