Feigned Ignorance

Have you ever purposely pretended to be ignorant about something you have knowledge of because you wanted to hear someone else explain it?

All the time. Especially when theyre totally wrong because i just sit there silently judging them. Its even better when they sound really confident about the topic.

dude. be a pretentious know-it-all to your heart's content. that's truly respectable up until when you're in college (then it's tiresome).

I'd rather be a dick and correct someone, because everytime I don't, and just let it slide, someone else ends ups correcting them, and then I look like a moron.

No, because even if I do say 'yes', they still go ahead and explain it anyway.

"Do you know what the Rosetta Stone is?"

"Yeah"

"It's so interesting! It's like the key to understanding ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs! Inscribed is three scripts of the same decree..."

*sigh*

My mate does it every damn time!

embrace that feeling. your peers are inconsequential in history. you are like a demigod above them. don't bow to them they bring you down. like that giant in gulliver's travels or whatever.

i know i am above them, but if they feel like i am their equal, they will be more surprised and less prepared for when i thrust my will to power onto them.
