The Experts #2



I didn't think that I would do another "expert" so soon, but chance sometimes necessitates such things. This past Saturday was my wife's work Christmas party in which we braved icy and snowy conditions to participate. Well, it's never really about the ice and the snow, but always about the other drivers. But I digress....

The party had been going on for quite awhile and I found myself darting outside for some fresh air and landed smack dab in the middle of a bunch of smokers. The conversation was interesting for a bit, so I stayed. Kind of a mistake. This one tall, gumpy, pony-tailed jackass was controlling the conversation and he was blathering on about how he was Swedish (descent) and how he could handle any type of cold weather. He amused me in a way and I was well into a jack n coke and wine filled evening, so I listened to his nonsense for awhile. He actually said that George Bush was an extremely intelligent man because he had convinced not only our nation but the world that he was an idiot. Huh? And he continued his rant saying that global warming was nonsense because it's just natural temperature change and when I tried to explain to him that natural temperature change takes hundreds of thousands of years and not 30 he then interjected that Al Gore is truly an idiot because of among other things he married Tipper. Because that truly matters, after all.

All of this AND he actually held his cigarette in that pretentious way between his middle and ring finger. What an idiot. Very soon, I went in search of another drink. I needed it.

Nailed!

There are so stupid experts as this in France also... This does not have borders....
When you hear such stupidity, this gives you a notion of the infinity...

Yes, I see the large hand, the empty eyes, and the aggressive nature of this man. He is clearly a representative of the type of people to avoid. They should not be allowed to occupy much of ones mental space, if any...

ThanKwee-Anajo said...

A notion of the infinity... yes, an infinite number of personalities and ideas..

DAD said...

I meant that the stupidity is the only infinite thing which I know....
Even the world is curved says Einstein....
But it is necessary to let speak these people there....
This reassures us....
" whoaaa? Here is somebody more stupid than me ...... " ^^

DAD said...

We are judged only in comparison with the others....
They are old that in comparison with the young persons...
They are big that in comparison with the thin....
In the world or everybody would be 50 years old, I am a young person....
In the world or everything people would have QI of 150, I am the last of the fools ;)
I am too serious there.....

I must be sick....

DAD said...

Pffffff....

Merisi: I wish I could have put him down (on paper, honestly!) more acurately, but I was working from memory...

But remember how Tipper wanted to ban rock n roll music? What was that about?

Dad:Est ce comme médecins Without Borders. Idiots Sans Frontières. Comment vrai. Et elles sont légion.

Anajo: Yes, and my dumb ass stayed and listened to him for a bit. One good thing is that there were a few people who shook their heads and went back in, so there are some exceptions. i should have followed those people, ha, ha.

The infinity is scary sometimes...

Dad: Vous êtes si droit sur ces matière et moi dites ceci à me tout à fait souvent. Il rassure presque parfois ! Parfois, quand au milieu de "ces" personnes je souhaite un virus qui éliminera toutes les personnes stupides et dures du monde. Mais, je me vérifie, parce que si ceci se produit alors je serai l'homme le plus stupide sur terre, hehe.

pfffft!

ThanKwee-Anajo said...

I never thought about it that way. At least we're not the stupidest or ugliest people around... hee hee

DAD said...

Hee, hee...

DAD said...

Everybody feels clever.... Since it is with her intelligence that he judges..... (PASCAL.... A froggy philosophize) ^^

DAD said...

Everybody is a typical fool for somebody.... DAD (a frog philosophize...)

DAD said...

Cette phrase ne convient pas à l'Anglais.... Votre langue doit être trop pauvre....

Pfffffff .....
Blooooody people.... ;)

Bruce said...

Anajo: Well, I sure hope that I'm not one of the most stupid or ugly out there, but there are days, I tell ya...

Dad: Vrai, vrai, et nous peut tout employer un certain froggy philosopher. Je l'apprécie de toute façon ! Est mon anglais ce mauvais ? ! ! Pffft.

DAD said...

Pfffffffffffffffffffffff.......(sigh..)

Bruce said...

Ha, ha!

I love these "experts" pieces! And you have far more patience for pretentious assholes than I do, it usually takes me about 30 seconds to start fucking with them...which, not so ironically, makes me kind of a pretentious asshole too...
Oh well, at least I don't smoke ;)

Bruce said...

Yeah, I definitely felt a need to do these and there will be more as my life seems to be filled with pretentious assholes. And I have way to much patience with these people, although that is giving way this past year or so. In my defense with this joker, I was drunk as hell and feeling pretty darn good.

Oh yeah, if you were a smoking pretentious asshole, that would be it, the clincher as they say, hehe.
