Once again someone is trying to associate raw intelligence with common sense,
they do not go hand in hand.
As far as the no high school, well, formal education and intelligence aren't
always a team, perhaps hard work and determination are the key?

Now, I do think that there has been proven a correlation between poverty and
lack of hard work and determination.
