Imagine being a total expert on a subject, and then almost causing a world war with your ignorance.
This is real. Stuff like this actually happens. You don’t know just how much you don’t know until you go out there and sit down with people of your own calibre. It’s only when we are presented with a challenge that we truly get to test our knowledge and abilities.
They say, ‘there will always be someone who knows more than you.’ But we wouldn’t know that until we talk to people on controversial subjects. Now, this usually ends up in one of two ways: One, you make a valid point. Two, you say something so stupid that the whole world loses their mind.
In the Tumblr Thread below, people shared their wildest stories of nerd fights. It was all pretty normal until one user shared The Orangutan story. A professor went to an Edgar Allen Poe’s conference didn’t know that speaking of ‘Orangutan’ at the ‘conference’ was equivalent to speaking of ‘Voldemort’ at ‘Hogwarts.’ Scroll on below and see what happened.
They always fight passive-aggressively.
Why picturing this is so funny?
That definitely sounds like biologists.
Now, here comes The Orangutan Story.
Apparently, there was much more to Edgar Allen Poe than we thought.
That’s very dark. (no puns intended)
Spoiler: It was at this moment the great professor knew that his presence at the conference was about as meaningless as a screen door on a submarine.
I can already see where this is going.
In short, he f*cked up.
Two words: Lesson learned.
Now we know how to create chaos at any Edgar Allen Poe conference. This is dark knowledge and should only be used in case of serious emergencies. That being said, would you ever trigger Edgar Allen Poe fans using the Orangutan story? Let us know in the comments below!
