an interesting “paradox”

smart people are better at distinguishing the "gems" from the "bullshit" in less credible sources. In less credible sources, you can find real gems that you can’t find anywhere else (because there will be ideas that haven’t been well-researched or confirmed). But at the same time, they *look* stupid whenever they read the less credible sources because it’s usually only the less intelligent who even believe in most of the things that are less credible. of course, "less credible" is open to interpretation. a place like cracked.com or autoadmit looks "uncredible" to the unguided observer. but both sites also contain true gems that you really can’t find on any more "legit" site
