Fess up… who on here is a pseudo intellectual then?
What is a pseudo intellectual when it’s at home?
Like any true pseudo intellectual, I’ll field that one utilising the power of Wiki…
pseudo intellectual may be used as a general term of abuse for intellectuals one dislikes or disagrees with … a pseudo intellectual is someone dishonestly or insincerely using the language, style, or topics of an intellectual, but who lacks the goals, morals, or ability of a “genuine” intellectual. It is someone who acts pretentiously and wishes to win an argument or impress, rather than modestly trying to find the truth – a focus on surface and rhetoric over content.
I pretend to be clever but I don’t have the background in classics, philosophy or literature that I ought to.
Ooh, I do!
I guess I’m in the top 5% echelon according to footflaps’ pseudo-intellectuals-on-stw-quotient’ then.

Cluedo Ineffectual = rubbish at board games?
I’ll totally fess up to that one, wwaswas. 🙁
I might also use it as a medical condition next time the family comes around and suggests Monopoly or some other hellish pastime.
‘Sorry love, no can do. I’m Cluedo Ineffectual’.

shoe size squared multiplied by the square root of the number of posts on STW in a month
Having made a quick mental calculation (which I can do because I’m a proper pseudo intellectual and know how to use a calculator), I discover to my shame that I my interlectulism score is miserably low.
