    Well then your dad is the one being stupid. Asking questions is good. It means you are curious about things and want to know more. Only dumb kids don't ask questions.

    Some people reduce other people so they can feel better about themselves. Don't be sad and believe in yourself. Be sorry for your step-dad's insecurity.

    Believe it or not, there isn't much difference between 'smart' people and 'stupid', at least not in the conventional view. There are good thought patterns, bad thought patterns, and habits. Those who ask questions are willing to learn and evaluate, and will achieve a great mind.
