A Sure Formula For Frustration…Enter into a conversation/debate with a Pseudo-intellectual

Pseudo-intellectual’s Impact on Most Logical People

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=pseudo-intellectuals

“Pseudo-intellectuals are people of average intelligence who are enchanted with highly intellectual topics and discussions such as philosophy, socioeconomics, destiny of humanity, etc. Unlike a genuine academic, a pseudo-intellectual’s main reason for being interested in these topics is because it makes him feel intellectually superior to his peers. He usually despises main stream culture, accuses those who disagree with him as being ignorant, and when his ideas are challenged, he often retaliates with “That’s a straw man argument!”

…or my personal favourite but just as silly…”that dog won’t hunt.”
