    As I pondered, I realized it would be good - if you do such a poll - to define what you mean by 'smart'...

    There are a lot of bright people on the forum but this question could well be differently phrased.

    The question is "who presents as if they think they are the smartest person on the forum?"

    One avitar in particular comes to mind.
    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    I'm soooo lucky there. .

    She's allegedly say smarter than I am, but I dunno. She sticks with me, which leads a person to question...

    Do you think speeling will count in Paul's definition? I think it should... but only as a secondary consideration.

    Yep. I knew "between" was the wrong word but couldn't come up with "among." Clearly I am far from the smartest guy here.

    I might be a candidate for that one. My one claim to intelligence is the knowledge that I ain't all that smart and know enough to keep my mouth shut!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    They don't call me "Mr. Know It All" because I'm smart.
