    I believe it was Bertrand Russell who said, "Boy, Harvard is SO lame compared to Princeton."

    "If you want to post something about how splendiforously stupendous Princeton is, well, that's done on the Princeton board."

    Replies of this type only occur in Harvard board. I don't think the Princeton board is there to store up only "splengiforously stupendous" posts about Princeton.

    Hang on a second! How did FermatABC find out about the smartest people in the world? Read his 1st sentence: he GOOGLED it. So instead of letting your own Harvard pride get in the way, show the guy where he went wrong in his reasoning.

    "FermatABC, show us your admission letters in April, and maybe we'll listen to you then." Grow up!

    The OP's "reasoning" seemed so transparently faulty (as others have noted) that it didn't appear to require a response.

    What gets tiresome is how obsessed some folks get with Harvard. Like you, for instance. Just minutes after posting here, you had this to say on a Brown thread:
    Have a look at the Harvard board on CC. It would be superficial to say that CC can give you a general idea about the undergrads at Harvard. Still, go there and see it for yourself. You won't give it a second thought. Pride, pride, pride, f**king pride! Harvard kids need to grow out of their pride.

    Hey, Princeton is a great school!!!

    Brown is a great school, too!!!

    (And, alas, Harvard is, too.)

    Given that the OP has posted exactly one post, and an intentionally inflammatory one at that, I think it's safe to dismiss him as merely another drive-by ****.

    This is a highly ammusing thread.

    Anyone who thinks that beacuse the top 5 smartest people in history, or whatever, went to Princeton, that it must offer a better educaiton than Harvard...well...shouldn't go to either. Do you honestly think that going to Princeton instead of Harvard (or anywhere else for that matter) ensured they would be the in the top 5? That because they went there, education quality is somehow better?

    That's the worst logic...ever.

    (and they didn't even "go" there, either)
