    I think those comedians are jerks, they just want to embarrass people. Why do you have to attach a nefarious intent to people who BS? Sure some people have a bad intent, but most people are simply afraid of being ridiculed for not knowing something. If people were less judgemental maybe people would be more willing to admit that they don’t know something. Lastly, you know it is very hard to know about everything one is supposed to know about. You may be a genius and able to retain every important fact, but most people have limited bandwidth in their brains.

    A few years ago I tried to learn two languages, and review one that I learn already and failed miserably. It was then I realize that it was ok not to know everything that I should know about. Before then I felt immense pressure from people like you and the earlier mentioned. comedians.
