"Who are you?"
"How should I know?"
"How can you NOT know?"
"I know who I think I am, but does that make me that person?"
"I don't think I'm following."
"Just because I say I'm smart, am I?"
"That depends."
"Exactly. It depends on everyone but me."
"Like, you're only as smart as your peers?"
"Yes. I am only as smart as the people I associate myself with."
"How do you figure that?"
"Being smart, only means that everyone else you're with know less than you, not that you know more than them. So, if you put yourself up against a scienctist, all of a sudden, your not considered smart, whereas if you're with some kindergardeners, you're brilliant, because they know less than you."
"You're only as smart as the dumbest person is what you're saying?"
"You could say that."
"So no one is smart since everyone knows more than everyone else."
"Not unless you hang out with everyone at once."
"That makes no sense.'"
"That's because I'm the smart one."
