I titled this special for the kids because whenever they do something - pretty much anything they're doing,
I ask "Smart or stupid?" and let them decide. About 99% of the time, they answer "stupid", frown and stop
throwing sharp objects at each other. But that brings me back to a place my mind likes to wonder at times.
Where does smarts come from? Where do you get the smarts from? Obviously, obviously there are smart and
stupid people on this Earth - more of the latter, unfortunately. If you feel like pondering something
philisophical, read on:

I think I have boiled it down to 3 major elements of where someone would get intelligence from:

  • Memory

  • Congnitive reasoning skills

  • Experience
