    ^^^^ that means you're more clever when you're not rambling on.

    Say short, quick plays on words. Go on google and memorize some catchy remarks. Sarcasm's usually funny. Try to hold off laughing after you say something until others are laughing too. Focus hard in your studies and be able to upkeep a conversation about current events and you'll do fine.

    I think you're giving people more credit than maybe they deserve. Everyone is not that smart.

    Now for you: Read more and not on the computer. Visit your local library and get acquainted with the layout, if you're not already. Read up on current events (newspaper) and stay in touch with what's going on. Watch less TV and use the computer less, I think computer and the internet make us all less smart. Join a book club or a discussion group. If it's full of negative people, it's not the right one. It takes work but I think you can find the time, if you really want it. Good luck!
