How To Prove Your Intelligence

There's two ways to prove one's intelligence:
  • Point out all the problems with a position or proposal, all the reasons it won't work and nothing should be done.
  • Figure out how to do something, particularly something that someone else says can't be done. Do so even if it requires a Rube Goldbergian contraption.
I'm particularly fond of the second strategy myself.

However, Kansas City always liked the first.
