Why are some people smarter than others?

And I mean people in general not nonsensical stuff about races. Is it something physical, something to do with differences in the brain itself? It surely can't be environmental, too many dumb rich people and smart poor ones for that to be true. On the other hand it can't be genetic, geniuses rarely spawn geniuses and many a moron has sired a really intelligent kid.

So if it is some difference in the brain what exactly is it? Is it size, the bigger the brain the smarter you are? Or is it like the penis, it's not the size that matters it's what you do with it?

My own grey matter, such as it be, needs a little help with this one!
