29 People Who Did Not Realize Who They Were Talking To

The Internet is a democratizing force. Like, trash trolls and award-winning scientists and dumb people and brilliant authors can all have Twitter accounts. I don’t really know what that says about the state of our society, but this democratization of the Internet has certain specific effects. On one hand, it’s really amazing. If you have a science question, you can easily find a scientist in that particular field and ask it.

On the other hand, though, if you want to be dumb enough to tell off someone who turns out to be an expert in their field, whether it’s science or politics or business or urban planning or whatever, you’re going to get owned, someone will screenshot it, and it will end up all over the place, like in this gallery, for example. So, don’t be like the people in this gallery. Do your homework before you look extremely silly in front of millions of people on the Internet.
