I take this back -- send me weird apes!
TIL J Robert Oppenheimer, inventor of the A-bomb, resigned as leader of Los Alamos. The program had shifted focus to thermonuclear weapons, and Oppenheimer vehemently opposed the hydrogen bomb and similar weapons on the grounds that they were more destructive than mankind could responsibly control.
I don’t even really know exactly what I mean by this, but there’s something about Conan O’Brien and Billy Corgan where they remind me of each other. It’s as though Conan is the Billy Corgan of talk show hosts, while William is the Conan O’Brien of alt-rock singer-guitarists.

How’s *your* weekend going? 🤩🌱☀️
However smart you are is exactly however smart you are. Smartness is caused by whatever factor(s) cause it. Amount of smarts is just one characteristic of a person among other characteristics of a person.
Smart has no connection to your own understanding of good or bad, right or wrong. You know jerks who are smart and great people who are not smart. You yourself have been both a jerk & great at different times.
Smart is over-rated. It is not a virtue.
Only virtue matters. Act on your virtues.
