20 Cringeworthy Comments From People Trying To Show Off How Smart They Are

It's just a fact that some people out there are a whole lot smarter than others. We aren't all born to be scientists and engineers, and that's fine, everyone finds their own things in life. Some people, though, depend entirely on being smarter than everyone else, and then going to extreme lengths to prove their intelligence to anyone that may listen. Many times if someone has to brag about being super smart, they probably aren't all that smart to begin with. These kinds of people are the ones who feel the need to correct obvious jokes, go to lengths to complain about a misused word, or go into a deep dive on a simple comment. Generally, they are also super annoying.

Reddit's /r/iamverysmart is full of documented accounts of people being annoying "smart." For some of them, its super obvious that they are children trying to gain some praise, and others are clearly adults with superiority complexes. Here are 20 accounts of people showing off their big brains online.

He's Smart

SAT r/Sat u/Various_Grass_9779 • 1h The SAT is a horrible test and correlates negatively to IQ My 940 on the SAT is good because it means that I have a high IQ i bet the SAT correlates negatively to IQ because I am smart enough to not put 1000000 hours into studying for the useless test that anyone can get over a 1500 on and i can get it too but i just dont want to so the SAT is 1500s are probably not as smart as 1200 scorers and i can just go test optional Vote 8 Share + Award

damn how much rent? The inside of a Violin. PRING STICS Uhhhh... Not sure if the original poster knows how small a violin is- let me break it down for you. It's too small to live in. Violins are musical instruments that are to be played by people and they are small enough to carry on your shoulder, so no, you can't live inside of one. It's a shame I even have to explain this, people these days aren't involved with the arts and rather listen to rap music.

I was the smartest in my maths class, arguably smarter than the teacher fr! I did she didnt even understand and came up with simplified ways of working out the answer compared to textbook. So everytime i finish the hours worth of work in 5 minuits the students would come to me, not the teacher. But when i tried to explain it to them they just dont get it but it was hard to explain because how my brain works. so i know how he feels 100! Responder Ver tradução

Adjectives Bad

3h "demonstrably false" You know what adjectives are? They're for the weak. Sleigh of hand for inserting your subjective views as modifiers of a word that best works standing alone. False, that's what you are. Fiction is the world you live in.

That's Why

500 x 5n I very recently learned that the reason I have little to no friends is soulful based on the fact that I think "fun/ enjoyable" conversations involve figuring out how math equations work

Gas Station

That would make me stick around, but I get it... dense, unintelligent people usually don't appreciate the intricacies of Opera and Classical music. Anyone hanging around outside a gas station probably isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. You don't see intellectuals hanging outside the local Speedway. Maybe you will now though.

Naruto Fans

The reason is because others already did my job for me, so now I don't need to waste my time. The reason why I act like I know more than everyone is because I do. I've rewatched Naruto more than anyone else in the world, so it's only natural I would have picked up on every fine detail possible. Your obsession with me is admirable though. You're like my #1 fan and it's adorable asf ngl

Even a dihydrogen monoxide (H²O = water) is a chemical when you think about it. CP Reply 分 42 凸 and big pharma has made all of us so addic... 2b I 13h. We should boycott DHMOs. It is known... O H₂O, with a subscript. The superscript is reserved for ionic charges in chemical formulas. We were taught that if you don't have the option to do a subscript or a superscript because you're using plain text etc use a _ or ^ respectively ahead of the character that should be sub- or superscripted. It can take a bit of wrapping your head around but it avoids ambiguity, e.g.: K_3PO_4 → K^3+ + PO_4^3- is equivalent to: K₂PO4 → K³+ + PO4³-. 3+ 3- 4 2 ♡ Ayo! I'm not doing this professionally, but thanks anyway.
