There are some real a**holes on the Internet who think it's a good idea to spew pretentious crap as if that will impress people.And luckily, some fine souls are collecting these moments in the sarcastically named "I Am Very Smart" subreddit. Here are 19 of the most eye-roll-worthy posts.

This unparalleled intellect
via: RedditYou know what I hate most about PhDs? The fact that they give them to people like you.
This young genius

This pretentious movie-goer
via: RedditApparently, this guy can't imagine why people would enjoy Avengers: Infinity War. But he liked Les Mis. Do you know how bad Russell Crowe's singing was in that movie? That movie was...not great.

This flat-out liar

This very normal-paced reader

This relentless douchebag

This one with the "relatively high IQ"

This bold Linkedin member

via: Reddit"Due to your boredom"? Dude, take a good look in the mirror and then debate yourself instead because no one wants to talk to you.
"Kids these days..."
via: RedditAnyone who uses the phrase, "Kids these days..." should be thrown in jail. The end.
This infuriating commenter

This football expert
via: RedditWow, this account is terrible. That's a two-step journey to Unfollowedville.

This online dating problem

This sibling rival
via: RedditWow, talk about disrespect for other types of lifestyles. His sibling probably posted, "My sibling is a stuck up b*tch," somewhere. Share this with someone who doesn't brag about being smart!
