You have to be smarter than smart to be considered smart

...because the test is written by someone much less intelligent.

It's kind of like what Nicholson Baker said about John Updike. Updike is more than genius because he can make his genius understandable. You see, if you have a genius concept and you want to get it across to stupid people, you have to be even more genius than the original concept: double genius!

That's what you're up against, smart people.
