This is pretty much my permanent reaction in all of my engineering courses. Consistently feel like the dumbest person in the room and on the planet

What's worst is that when you think you actually understand them, but they prove you wrong

Try peeing on them to show dominance

Ugh, I hate that feeling, and in the IT world it's inevitable you run into that situation from time to time... you encounter something where you don't have enough background in whatever it is, and the concept just doesn't quite click... I've had days where someone gave me what sounded like a great explanation, but I had to thank them and then go ask someone else the same question to have it explained from a different perspective and from a different personality so I could hopefully get it. Sometimes it's best to ask if it can be put on hold, go home, crack a beer, read up on it, get a good nights sleep, and then get back to it the next morning after you're sufficiently dosed with coffee.

I think the most endearing trait of dogs is when they tilt their head to the side in seemingly confusion.

That’s how I feel when people tell me that Alabama is going to elect a child molester to the senate.

If people don't understand something after getting it told multiple times, it's usually the explanation that's something wrong with

8 Dec 2017 01:50 - +1
... just smile and nod, smile and nod, repeat this until the person talking to you appears to be satisfied with your response. Then run the f&ck away as fast as you can before they get a chance to say anything else . LOL 😂

7 Dec 2017 23:38 - +1
What don't you understand buddy? Maybe you're not stupid and maybe they're not horrible at explaining, maybe they're just trying to explain it in a way that's harder to fit into how your brain thinks. If you can find someone to explain it a different way, it might make sense.

So *that's* the face that lefties always make
