What is sickening about it and how do you know he isn't?

What are you basing that on?

Because there is no such thing. Nobody is wisest or smartest in everything. Or even in any one field, really. No human being is infallible.

Can you know that for certain without knowing every person on earth? Look at the recent Jeopardy record breaker who was an expert in every topic that came up.

Nah, impossible, nobody can be an expert on EVERYTHING, no such thing. Human brain is essentially a biological computer. Like any computer, its memory capacity is limited :)

lol You reminded me though... I have no idea what your Jeopardy champion is like; but Russia has own version of this show, "Svoya Igra' ("Our Game")


Their absolute champion is a guy named Anatoly Vasserman, he is like Undisputed Grandmaster or something like that, over there, won multiple special tournaments among their strongest players, all of whom get to wear the golden cloaks (while regular ones wear silver; yeah, it's more weird over there haha)


He also won a dozen episodes in a row on one season where they competed in such "endurance" or what have you...

Vasserman is 66, and, certainly until he began his career on Svoya Igra, two decades back, he was a virgin; though, I think becoming a famous (and wealthy too, both from all his winnings and the books he has since published, etc) champ DID change his life a bit

:D

That's one nerd, at least, who has made it, over there haha

Actually we don't know the power of the human brain. It's estimated that the average human only uses 10% of it's computing power but that is essentially just a guess. Until we have the technology to stick a microchip in there we won't know.

Mind you that I am only a novice on this subject but the human brain operates on a different system than machines. In fact, we are trying to invent technology that operates on the "pulses" that the human brain does because it's almost instantaneous. As we've seen from different people who have different abilities, the human brain is capable of so much. There are people that can learn piano at the age of 3 or memorize entire novels, there are people that can solve complex equations in their head instantly, people that can solve word games instantly....this is all the power that's contained in the human brain but only some people have unlocked it though it does show what we are capable of.

So while no one may be an expert in everything it is certainly within the limits of the human brain for them to be so. However, the point of the thread is not how smart someone is but wisdom and wisdom is essentially derived from experience and knowledge. Trump probably isn't the wisest person in the world but since there is no way to measure that we can't count his statement as inaccurate.

You’re questioning that he is the most intelligent manjust proves that his base is the least intelligent
And also the fact that you don’t see it as narcissistic ego maniacal also speaks volumes about you
