I get in arguments about that stuff all the time. "How do you know that?"

"I read it online. What do you think I'm doing with my time?"

People just think I am really smart. They call me and ask if I know something about something, I say a little and find out their problem and pop open the computer and research it. Then I go over and fix it and they pay me in beer. It's a win win. I like to learn stuff and drink and they obviously have never heard of google.

I know what I know. I wouldn't call myself smart. I would say I'm confident in my ignorance.
