If you need to brag that you’re the smartest guy in the room, chances are, you’re not. You’re probably insecure and afraid. This guy stormed into a bar and bragged he was smarter than all the local ‘Bumpkins.’ He quickly realized that he was the Bumpkin when he lost and didn’t even score in the top 10.
To make matters worse, and to make himself feel better, he complained that he lost to “a gang of old retired f*ck ups that have nothing better to do.” That sounds awfully like a projection. This guy needs to get a new hobby and pick up a book or two. Getting so worked up over a university pub quiz just isn’t worth it (via Constative).
