wikipedia wrote:Stupidity is the quality or condition of being stupid, or lacking intelligence, as opposed to being merely ignorant or uneducated. This quality can be attributed to both an individual himself (e.g. Penny Person is stupid.) or his actions, words or beliefs (e.g., Penny Person's policies are stupid.). The term can thus also refer to poor use of judgement, or insensitivity to nuances in a person who is otherwise intelligent. The determination of who is stupid is relatively difficult, despite attempts to measure intelligence (and thus stupidity) such as IQ tests. The adjective is also used as a general pejorative. (e.g., I didn't borrow your stupid cap - go look for it yourself.)
Synonyms for stupid include idiot, moron, imbecile and retard (frequently shortened to just "'tard" in common use). The use of "dumb" can also be used to indicate stupid, but it has other frequently used connotations, including deafness and ignorance, while "dummy" is generally the same as stupid. The word is usually used essentially to express a mere opinion.

Does that mean I'm ignorant or just plain stupid?
Mine is 208.
