The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt - Bertrand Russell

This actually struck me as sadly true. Why do the people with IQ in their heads feel that they’re stupid or at least that they’re not smart? And why the fuck do the stupid people believe that they’re above regular people in some way? It all sounded so stupid to me..

Note that I used the past tense with ‘sounded’ because after some deep thinking, a boring history class, and a burrito it all makes perfect sense! The smart underestimate themselves because they’re intelligent enough to know that there’s so much in this world that they don’t know yet, making them feel relatively stupid. The idiots, however, don’t realize this fact and thus feel smart. Yea confusing I know, but like all paradoxes this one just needs some thought (or none if you’re smart.)

Bottom line: The less you know, the more you think you know. And I hate paradoxes.

I have no idea what I’m doing

First of all, I’ll have you know that I’m doing this purely out of curiosity. People told me that I can empty my head here. So far it has been pretty weird since I have no idea what to do.. I see people on here that are happy, cheerful and optimistic and seem to be on Cloud 9. But then I look at all these seemingly ‘depressed’ people who seem to find life an annoyance; and I think, what are all these people trying to do? Does this somehow help them emotionally? Is posting on a virtual network what makes them feel good? I can’t really judge since I’m not going through what they’re going through, they make it sound like hell though. I’ve never really been that active on social networks, I hope this won’t turn into an addiction. That about ends my first blog post, we’ll see how this turns out.
