Pretending to read

Todays Garfield cartoon made me chuckle a bit because it’s so true. There’s always someone that tries to give you their opinion without researching any facts or even knowing what they’re talking about, they’re the people that try to make their way into a discussion by knowing nothing except a question that makes them seem as though they know something, but don’t.

I think it was a book called How To Win Friends and Influence People that brought about this ‘false knowledge’ where you can make yourself look remotely intelligent by reeling off buzzwords, kind of like people you see on TV that have no idea what they’re talking about and try to blind you with carefully placed big words to hide the fact they’re not as clever as they want you to think.
