How to be smart and stupid at the same time
Recently I had a job interview with a company that makes web-advertising software. (No, not popups.) They wanted to hire an "algorithmist" to solve a problem they had computing how much money to bid on Google keywords. In the course of a 1-hour phone interview, I gave them the complete solution to their problem.

They didn't hire me.

So who was more short-sighted? Them, or me?
