This guy didn’t know how to read a dictionary

Sometimes people amaze me when they make themselves sound so stupid and then argue against it when they are proven wrong.

The short example would be when I explained to a coworker that the word “THEY’RE” and “THERE” are, in fact, different words and are not equivalent.  He then argued that they are the same because everyone uses them in that way.  What kind of ridiculous logic are you using!?  Has the overall intelligence of the human race really diminished so much that we can’t even read or write English correctly anymore?

Oh, but who cares if he got it completely wrong because…I’M the EVIL one for pointing out something that is correct.  I’M what they call…a grammar nazi!

Apparently, when someone is wrong, they prefer to make the person who is correct sound wrong instead of realizing their own faults.  Silly humans.

————————————–

So that brings me to today.  I read a friend’s post on Facebook with that fun story about a math teacher who shows his or her students how you get 100% in the class.  They then demonstrate by showing them the alphabet and match each letter to a number in numerical and alpha order.  A =1, B=2, C=3, etc.

Therefore, H+A+R+D+W+O+R+K would equal: 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and, K+N+O+W+L+E+D+G+E would equal: 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

However, A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E equals: 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

That’s all fun and games and students find it interesting.  It’s a lesson in teaching that having the right attitude gets you the farthest.

The Facebook post then went a little longer and made it humorous by saying BULLSHIT  2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 =103% , and ASSKISSING 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118% , actually get you more than 100%.  This is to explain why sometimes stupid people get farther ahead in life because of their BS and brown nosing.  Pretty funny huh?  Most people would chuckle and just move on thinking that was pretty interesting.

Then some moron commented on his Facebook post.

“BULL SHIT AND ASS KISSING are separate words. With that train of thought If you add “Knowledge is power” you trump all of the above examples. = win”

I looked at this dude’s comment and didn’t understand why he thought he was so great with his revelation.  He even wrote “=win” in his post to make sure we all know that he is an arrogant bastard.  WHOOP DEE DOO!  Congratulations!  You have discovered what all Kindergarteners in the world have learned:  COMPOUND WORDS!

So yes, you are right that they are separate words….but when together they are compound words which are, in fact, actual words.  However, in your haste to be all knowing, your logic to trump the alphabet math examples is completely WRONG.  “Knowledge is Power” is a sentence, not a word.  As a result, you are comparing apples to oranges.  You’re making yourself sound stupid.

I replied to that comment politely by telling him that ‘bullshit’ and ‘asskissing’ are compound words but that he was using a sentence which does not fall into the same category as to what the math example was using.  Of course, ‘bullshit’ and ‘asskissing’ are slang words but they still count as compound words.

The dude was able to make himself sound even dumber.

“I didn’t see that in a dictionary.  Show me”

WTF?  You don’t know how to look up http://www.dictionary.com?

Your stupidity makes me sad.
