Gawd I hate that! I consider myself a little below what would be considered average intelligence, yet when I talk to the people around me I get looks as though I'm speaking in tongues.
Example: Wishing to discuss some points of a documentary I had watched, I've asked several people if they knew who Richard Dawkins is (reknowned biologist, atheist, evolutionist). EVERYTIME the response was, "Oh yeah, he used to host the Family Feud." I give up!
