I was trying to be humorous but it seems I could not convey it well
Both humor and sarcasm are often difficult when typed - even if everyone is "based" in the same language. As you mentioned, having different language background also complicates these.
To me intelligence is the brainpower needed to do a thing. Ignorance is not a measure of brain power, but rather a level of awareness/understanding.
It doesn't bother me if i'm ignorant about lots of things - i can
learn. . .
Hopefully, i'll not become stupid (i.e. lack of intelligence).
