Is It Smart To Think About Thinking Smart?
Has it become time to rethink or perhaps retire the often overused word “Smart”? It helps if you understand that an easy to park and (not quite as much as you might think) good on gas milage SmartCar remains a smart purchase until less than a nano second or so before that rapidly growing Buick in your rearview mirror smartly inserts you into its grill ornamentation, and at that point, eh.. maybe it’s not so smart. Even Kim Kardashian with all her layers of protective fat and all of the junk that’s been stuffed in her trunk wouldn’t do very well after taking a hearty 60 mph rear end probing from a few tons of GM steel. In the, so to speak, end, is the SmartCar going to be remembered as the Yugo of the 21st century?
That experience is similar in the way a “SmartPhone” can be considered to be a smart accessory until the exact instant in time that your dense yet apparently empty forehead collides with a dumb yet solid telephone pole or similar unmovable object as you walk along, you all absorbed in texting those tweets.
Ironically enough, moments after you’ve tried to become one with that pole, that smart ass friend of yours who was walking beside you probably said “Oh wow, I’ll bet that smarts”
