    I don't want to ruin anything of Stephen's charms and people being impressed by him, but I feel like this was kinda basic knowledge. At least I learned about it at school and a lot of people who had lessons in Latin, too. I feel like a lot of this knowledge come with learning a language. Then again, English speaking countries do not seem to teach that many languages as other European countries do.

    It seemed more like a backhanded compliment than being "blown away" Stephen, of course, politely and humbly dismissed her comment because he's more interested in the discussion than being the brightest star in the room.

    Quite sad how uncomfortable other people getting praise make some. Petty, envious, bitter, low comments about one person being pleasantly surprised by another. Good thing the target of all this venom could not care less about the ramblings of hateful, self-loathing, homophobic people on an internet page. He will continue to enjoy his fame and money, regardless of your opinion of his intellect.

    Man, I love this guy... Just the fact that he compared Atlas's continuous effort to hold up the sky to the image of a bulgarian weightlifter at 3:24 made my night... I rarely see anybody on the Internet or anywhere else reference my homeland Bulgaria. This man is indeed very intelligent, people should only learn from him.

      +syco Cruise is an athletic action film star who does his own stunts and has a particularly strong work ethic. He's also an accomplished climber and motorcyclist. However, he's unremarkable when it comes to intelligence.

    I went to a classical lyceum and studied ancient Greek, Greek mythology and tragedies in depth so was familiar with most of this. I'm surprised that to most this is intelligence. It's mere studying. But he definitely did something beautiful when he chose to tell these stories again with a simple jargon and by making them more approachable to those who haven't studied them :)

    There is a tv series in Norway where they try to connect anyone to a celebrity with six or fewer connections (that they have talked and that both remember each other). In one of the episodes the presenters where five steps inn but nowhere near the celebrity (Stephan Fry), so they tried their best shot, a guy Stephan had met ten years ago once. Amazingly Stephan remembered! Truly extraordinary.

    The mythological gods were named after fallen angels and given their attributes. Nicole should know this since she was raised in a Luciferian home, her father being a high priest in Australia.

  • Wayne S

    The trouble with "IQ" is that it's essentially meaningless, as intelligence isn't a thing you can measure. Intelligence is a variety of gifts: word skills, spatial understanding, mathematical skills, insight and artistic skills are just subsets of intelligence. It's like trying to measure volume with a ruler; there are more dimensions to intelligence than can be measured on a single scale.
    Stephen Fry is brilliant, and if you want to know how smart he is, listen to him talk for an hour. That hour will pass very quickly, and after it has, you'll mostly likely be certain he is more clever than you are.
