And add to that proposition an investigation into why you are so dogmatic about your own intelligence and other's idiocy.

And to whet your whistle for the investigation I promise to undertake (conditional. . .), let me say this: You may be the smartest person you've met in the flesh. But this is a world-wide web, dude. Flesh and blood experience means nothing when the world is brought together. In other words: I have no doubt whatsoever that you have nothing on me. Except that you appear to enjoy telling people what idiots they are and I have learned what folly that is. Does that mean I have something on you? Even if its only emotional and having nothing to do with intellect?

If you agree to the investigation, we may find out.
