    haha. no doubt.
    fuck 'em.

    what made me make this thread was this:

    i was over at my neighbors house not long ago,
    and they were eating some arugula dessert.

    i asked what it was and they said 'arugula'.
    i said, 'oh yeah? is it made with the whole plant
    or what?" the reply from neighbor wife "actually, it's
    a dessert" me, "no, it's a plant" me again, "no, really, arugula is a plant,
    i think it's a tuber"

    they got these kind of sneers on their faces. like i had just farted
    on their dog. i could tell they were annoyed.

    several similar situations i've encountered in life bring me to
    the conclusion that being smart is looked down upon. to them,
    i was being a "smart ass" or something of that sort. why?

    well, maybe.

    it's not even about my neighbors. not really.
    not even about me. that was just an example
    to get the ball rolling on this thread.

    the real question is this: does it make people
    feel inferior for someone else to be smart/smarter?

    You should have farted on the dog. That way their looks were justified.


    I haven't figured out some people, so my opinion on this shit is shortsided but when they said when you ask what the dessert was made out of and their answer is "its a dessert," that's your que to drop the question since that was their way of saying "I haven't got a fucking clue".

    Pseudo Intellectual: Someone who's been 'dealt a bad hand by life' and demands the love and respect his/her brain deserves by barking said intellectualism in an uncharismatic, socially unacceptable manner.

    I've been there. It happens when you're stressing the fuck out. Just gave up and life's been good.


    But yeah pseudo intellectuals are just as bad as overweight chicks who proudly display their clevage.

    i had this problem a LOT in school. and often elsewhere. so many times in school i asked sincere questions only to have arsehole teachers assume im being a smart arse and attempt to dish out some punishment. i fucking hated school for this reason more than any other. so many teachers are sons of bitches. male or female.

    when i was in 5th grade, the science teacher was talking about earthquakes and volcanos.
    i raised my hand, was called on to speak, and proceeded to inform her that earthquakes and volcano's were caused by techtonic plates in the earth and pressures that welled up in them.
    she had no idea what i was talking about. one kid, this guy who was in advanced whatever
    knew what i was talking about. the teacher adn the rest of the class were lost.

    talk about a weird feeling. i'm not surprised at all i still remember this.

    keep in mind i grew up in the south east.


    soup: i had friends that used big words unnecessarily in highschool. trying their best to make themselves seem smarter than they were. funny thing is, one of them was actually a smart guy. just not smart enough to realize that he didn't need to throw big words around.

    I don't like cocky individuals.

    This includes people who think they are too smart for their own worth.

    This story reminds me of a time in primary school when some egyptian fool tried to tell me that the pyramids had 3 sides. I insisted they had 4 sides.

    His argument was that his family are from egypt so he would know. SUCKER!

    wouldn't that be a whole other category? maybe obnoxious or stuck up?
    i dislike people who are stuck up about anything.

    Hmmmm I guess so. I'm kinda leaning towards people who are smart and look down upon you because you aren't as intelligent.
