The Other I

A Nobel prize winner whose name I don’t remember was asked in an interview what it felt like to be so much smarter than everybody else.

After a slight pause, he replied “That’s not usually how the problem presents itself.”

If only I had an equally valid excuse for when everybody else is wrong.  It would be so useful.
