  • The question reminds me of the exchange between Zaphod Beeblebrox and Aurthur Dent in 'Hitchhikers Guide' when the mice want to buy Arthur's brain and replace it with a robotic one.

    Z. You could just program it to say "Where's my tea?" and no one would be able to tell the difference.

    A. I'd know the difference!

    Z. No you wouldn't, You'd be programmed not to.

    I'd rather be aware, or smart as you put it. To get the same effect as being happy without being aware all you have to do is put a gun to your head and pull the trigger.

  • smart, sometimes you need to face the truth of life. Happiness doesn't take you where you want. Rather than smiling all the time, I would rather know where and when to smile.

  • if your really smart you will find something or someone that you like so in turn you will be happy. but if its the rare circumstance that the person is one of though people who hates everything about life. i would take being happy.

  • ... Happy.
    "Smart" Comes with Having Knowledge, and Being Wise as an Ol Owl, Like I am with Age... I pretty much have Both, if Never had Any Brains.
    Good luck. xx

  • Definitely happy. If i was smart but unhappy, it would have a negative affect on me emotionally so i wouldn't be so smart, because the mind can't focus when you are unhappy

  • Happy, because intelligence allows you to see how dumb humans are generally, which is a sad thing.
