Those kinds of comments are always fun. How many of them did you impress? LOL!
Whether or not one is smart has nothing to do with whether or not they are educated. Obviously. But do you suggest that there are fewer smart people that are educated than there are without education? That would be an interesting notion. I would suspect the distribution to be fairly even myself.
I know all sorts of people of all walks of life and levels of education but I work with very highly educated people every day. Most of them are quite amazing really...but they are doctors and medical students. Top 2% of the population in character, integrity, intellect, and aptitude. They amaze me every day, I am continuously humbled by them.
Some of the smartest people I have known were fairly uneducated. It was a shame for them because it left them at a serious disadvantage in general. Kind of like a Ferrari with cheap tires, a bad tune-up, and cheap gas. Still a Ferrari...but at a serious disadvantage next to those with a good set of tires etc.
Frankly I personally don't care how educated a person might be as long as we can converse and have fun. :thumbup:
As you can imagine I have a few degrees myself.
That just took hard work....not intelligence. The hardest working people I have ever met in life were people with advanced degrees....and I have done manual labor myself in my younger days. Only one non-educated person I ever met impressed me as a hard worker. OK that's a lie....I just had to say it because it sounded about as clever as your comment. LOL!
