Definitions of STUPIDS
Sort: Oldest first
Term used by samurai for the suits who employ them.Succinctly expresses an attitude at least as common, thoughusually better disguised, among other subcultures of hackers.There may be intended reference here to an SF story originallypublished in 1952 but much anthologised since, Mark Clifton's"Star, Bright". In it, a super-genius child classifies humansinto a very few "Brights" like herself, a huge majority of"Stupids", and a minority of "Tweens", the merely ordinarygeniuses.
