I interact with the general public daily, I use these coping methods every day. It really makes me appreciate the few people in my life who are relative geniuses.

Keep your emotions in check. Stupid people are professionals at making other people upset or enraged. But from now on, you won't let stupid people get to you like this -- there's simply no point. If you want to be the dominant person in the conversation, then you have to keep your cool; being in control of your emotions is smart. You don't want to end up looking like the stupid one just because you couldn't stay in control of your feelings.

When you get in a fight with a stupid person, from a distance, nobody can tell which one is the stupid person.

Douglas Adams had some pretty good insights on how most people view the world and act. I spent many years interacting with the public while doing HVAC and am amazed at how many people do not even have a clue where their furnace is located in the house they have lived in for years.

Unfortunately, a fair share of my calm, rational, and intelligent friends have drifted away over the last fours years. They are no longer those things. Sad.

I flat out stopped dealing with idiots and my life is much better. I don't and won't give them the time or day now, they aren't worth it.

My career in engineering kept me in proximity to many professionals like myself for so long that I really grew to appreciate how unique and valuable it was to have people willing to work for the same goals in this world.

This was prescient. I just finished debating (on Reddit, yes, I  know, I know) a group of what was perhaps the stupidest group of people on the internet I have yet encountered.

When their arguments were destroyed with little effort, of course they resorted to personal attacks, and then when I attacked them back, they were offended.

But...just....

Their personal attacks were not effective, original, or funny.

Like, how much brainpower does it take to come up with an original insult?  Call me an asstrombone, a brainless dick trumpet, Rick Sanchez without humility or grace, something. Give me some entertainment value, goddamn.

HURR DURR NPCs.

Jesus f*ck, these goddamn blockheaded gormless asswarblers.

One guy threatened to send me a hail of bullets.

I told him I was unimpressed with his threat.

He started backtracking and said he didn't threaten me. I responded that of course he did, what did he mean to imply, he was going to mail-order bullets to me out of the goodness of his heart, thanks I'll take some 9mm rounds.

Either apologize and say, look it was in the heat of the moment or tell me off, but don't do this cowardly spineless crap.

Yes, I told a man who threatened me that he was a coward.

I stand by that assessment and I'm not even drunk or high.

Some people I encounter I honestly question whether they are mammals.

I'm sure it would, if I knew any calm, rational, and intelligent people.

Arguing Reddit is basically just child abuse.
Arguing on Fark is the way to go.
