If you do, then all of your intelligent comments are null & void.
If 95% of us worked there, we would feel exactly the same as you.

In comparison to most people I know, I'm inevitably superior when it comes to intelligence. I have the ability to learn a chapter of vocab in five minutes, ace every math test, ace every test I study for, and so on. I don't know what it's like to study for three hours and get a C. If I do that, I get an A. I don't understand how people can't question authority, think critically about a TV show, etc. It's like my mind segregrates me from the majority of society. I'm proud of my wits, but it's sad how naive and stupid people are. I don't know if it's genetics or lack of educational motivation. Maybe being smart is uncool. Hm. I still question what it's like to have an inferior mind, to have a poor memory, and to have little ability to think for one's self. Also, I do recognize that school ability doesn't really matter, but smart people are probably more likely to understand something than people who aren't smart.
Hopefully I didn't sound arrogant.

I was going to post a response but having seen this post, there's no need. You put it so eloquently I have nothing but one thing to add. When he finally gets visibly old and is still intelligent, they won't believe him no matter how much sense he makes; he'll become invisible and inaudible. That's one time you really start to wonder if you are "dumb"!
