Are You the Greatest of All Time?

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

“I’m not like the others; I’m awesome.” We all think it. But is it true? Trace lets us know whether we’re kidding ourselves, and why that might be a good thing.

“Narcissistic, broke, and 6 other ways to describe the Millennial generation”

“This new generation of adults — portrayed most recently in HBO’s Girls — has proved quite difficult to define, but not for lack of trying.”

“On a scale of one to 10, you probably think you’re a seven. And you wouldn’t be alone.”

“Why We’re All Above Average”

“5 Shocking Ways You Overestimate Yourself”

“Have you ever sat next to the smelly guy? Did you ever wonder why nobody tells him that he smells, or why he can’t smell himself?”

“Mirrors Don’t Lie. Mislead? Oh, Yes.”

“For the bubbleheaded young Narcissus of myth, the mirror spun a fatal fantasy, and the beautiful boy chose to die by the side of a reflecting pond rather than leave his “beloved” behind.”

boogie2988 simply because he's a great speaker, but also because he's a comedian, man of the people and gamer.

I really like Matthew Patrick, Myamoto, and username Joshscorcher. It has been my dream to become one of the main Game Theorists for a while, but the more I look at it the more ridiculous it seems to think I could join up with the likes of Mat Pat, Gaijin Goombah, and Ronnie "Onnie" Edwards. (I think I forgot one there).

Also, my personal rating of myself is (maybe) a solid five.

i feel like i'm a mix of Skydoesminecraft and Matthew Patrick, even though they're both guys and i'm a girl XD

I thought I was a one, does that mean I'm not even on the scale of awesome?! :*(

Innanet Slatt January 29, 2014 - 6:00 PM

I've never asked someone to rate themselves and them not say seven. Even people who I'm sure I look better than say seven when I usually say six.

I chose 4 on the scale 1-10 for awesomeness, I'm not a vary awesome person haha

TheColaGoodfellow July 29, 2014 - 7:18 AM

How awesome I am depends on how you judge "awesomeness".

If by awesome you mean raw uniqueness, I rate as an 11 out of 10. I know very few other people who know as much about philosophy and religions as I do. Sure, most people know about their own religion, but I went further and studied other religions, including ancient myths such as the Norse and Egyptians. I also obsess over philosophical questions more than most people I know seem to.

And just as few have the same dress sense as I. I'm basically a hippie-goth who likes wearing weird hats, and I bet you've not met many of them in your life, I certainly haven't.

Also, I'm asexual and gender ambiguous. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

I think I took this a bit out of hand.

To some people I'm probably 1, but to other I'm a strong 2.

loosing or winning in contest is not a good way to mesure intelect. In this whole vid, never heared the word wise. i think wisdom is one of the primary atributes towards being the greatest. wisedom has been cast into fantasy and is nolonger considered a reachable goal for the mass's. this is negatifly invluancing communication and value contrived from it, making us all less great.

I chose 10.

I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself – we are creatures that should not exist by natural law… We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, that accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody's nobody… I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing.
