If there's an easy way to find out who's "smart" for sure its not the guy who claims to be a (self professed) smart cookie. Aint it said "Be smarter than other people. Just don't tell'em so" ???
And aren't Cookies meant to be sweet anyways??? And we "Clear" them after a browsing session. So how do you find out who's smart in reality? It's definitely not those who go about telling everyone how smart they are. Maybe smart people dont care about being smart. They're too busy with other important work.
I think a Smart person would be one who has nothing special about him ...he's a Simple Person with few ambitions in my life & work towards achieving his Goal ...Isn't that a perfect description of a real smart guy??!! Like my sweety's swty.
