You, my friend, may always be tripping over your own brilliance, but at least you have the goods and courage to keep on going. I on the other hand once applied for entrance into a renowned prep school. On the test I spelled accident (axcedent), so as you may surmise I didn’t make the grade.

Now even though my mechanical IQ has always been very sub par, I nevertheless at the macro level believed that I possessed a profound insight as to the working of life. And then came along computers with spell checkers and other mechanical crutches to cover my weaknesses.

So I guess my point, if any, is that we are all flawed in different ways.
