The difference between "clever" and "smart"|
I'm not a scientist, but I DO work at a place which has some of the cleverest people in the country on staff; brilliant engineers who have built everything from satellites and landers to particle accelerators, software developers who helped build the Internet, physicists of every flavour from particle physics to the sort that require more dimensions than the Great old Ones inhabit... Seriously, their combined IQ would be terrifying.. But are they SMART as well as clever? That's a difficult question.
A former Chief Exec used to tell a story about visiting another research establishment, and asking how many scientists were employed there. Their CE told him "We have around two hundred scientists, and one inventor"... when asked to elaborate on what the difference was he was told "The inventor isn't the best scientist we have, but it's his output that allows us to pay for the two hundred scientists!"

This is, of course, far from the truth. I am attracted to well toned, blue eyed, dark haired heroes who are very confident in their masculinity without the need for macho posturing. (And another coincidence here is that they have similar looking little brother's (adopted or actual) who followed in their footsteps!)
But such heroes only come along every... oh, let's say a thousand years! Good thing for me we have the Legion of Superheroes!
