Look, I'm not doing this for you, but for my own dark and twisted reasons. Oh, and because everyone else is doing it.

the five pillars of superficial intelligence

A previous supervisor, and one helluva human being, used to regale the office with many witticisms. One of them was called The Five Pillars of Superficial Intelligence. My boss theorized that by demonstrating 1 or 2 pillars at any social event, one could be deemed an intellectual.

1. Say something in French.
2. Say something in Latin.
3. Use an historically correct date.
4. Use a mathematical equation.
5. Quote Shakespeare. (Correctly - see previous post.)

Pretty funny if you think about it...
