Under the definition of the word smart you would say their smart. I wouldn't use the word smart at all. Because if you look at everyone.. you can't actually say someone is smart. I also didn't say smart means knowing everything in the world. Again read my post again. I said this is in my own opinion. I never meant to give exact definitions from a dictionary book. It's my own definition.
You didn't understand what my post is about.
I was saying that the agreed definition of the word smart does not require omniscience. And that the fact you don't use the word smart because you think there is a requirement of omniscience to be called smart for YOUR definition of the word is retarded.
If we changed the definition of smart to mean omniscience, then we wouldn't have a word to describe those who are more intelligent than others by comparison. Then what would happen? Oh... we'd just invent yet another word to fill its place. Then what would happen?
You'd probably refuse to use that word because you're retarded absolutist definitions for crap leaves you wading in the child's pool of intelligence.
HONEY!!! the public already did that. They changed the word smart to mean omniscience.
Go ask anyone other then on this website. Ask them what do you think a person that is smart means??
just watch them say oh it means that person knows everything and is intelligent. I seen so many people use the word smart.
12 year old kid works at Microsoft does the same thing as his dad that also works for microsoft...dad teaches his kid how to program... kid gets on news... news says this boy is really smart. He can build computers!!!!
LMAO!!!!... it is used frequently and yes people think smart means omniscience and I do know the difference. The problem is you never understood my post. The OP question Is are programmers smart.
My response is no. For me to call them smart they have to know everything inside and out of a computer.
Since programmers program computers... Most don't even know how a CPU works on a programmatic level.
I then basically said that smart shouldn't be used at all. In my opinion because basically it's used too frequently in public.... and yes the public actually thinks smart is the same thing as omniscience but most of the public dosen't even know what omniscience is.
The funny thing is that most here hate me and think I am stupid. If so then why respond to my postings??? LMAO!!!
I know secretly you have some messed up urges with me...
