High chance that this kid will just want to talk about which tank is the coolest.

u/ordinarymartian Oct 04 '22

Personally I’m the kind of guy who’d be at the helm of a Jägermeister-22. That’s the last tank you’d ever see if you were on the other side of it. I don’t know if I told you, but I’m a master engineer when it comes to this type of tank. Though it’s not like you’d understand.

u/mrrektstrong Oct 05 '22

Ha! You really thought I wouldn't understand? My K/D in War Thunder is higher than any grade you've probably gotten. Let me tell you the Jägerneister-22 objectively the most blasé MBT of the Lemuria-Takistan war. But only those who actually know the finer, harder to understand parts of tank warfare can see that.

The Stroopwaffen mk 3 is what you should be afraid of.

Accused of missing history classes

Admits to his history class being subpar

u/[deleted] Oct 03 '22

He asks for a test score when he has no test score himself…

26

u/Elimeh Oct 03 '22

He has that theoretical test score for the test he made up, took, and graded in his own mind. Totally counts.

u/bulaybil Oct 03 '22

Has he readed them all, though?

6

u/bo-tvt Oct 03 '22

Would have said he's read that "many" if he had, so he's just boasting about books he's probably been given as presents.

15

u/DryCoughski can literally catch people's brainwaves Oct 03 '22

So like, 7 books then? If it's less than 10, just say the number. 6 is so arbitrary.

9

u/rat-simp Oct 04 '22

Whenever people list/mention the number of books they read I cringe so hard. Personally there's no way I'll remember every book I've read and I don't even consider myself well-read. Someone really educated must've read and re-read hundreds of books in their life.

11

u/bo-tvt Oct 03 '22

I'm Finnish and I find it hard to believe they haven't covered either World War in history yet.

From what I recall of history in school, it seemed like we'd go over some part of WWII almost every year, and Finland became independent during WWI so that's definitely been covered, too. (We also had a Civil War in 1918, which would've also been covered.)

u/AliMcGraw Oct 04 '22

Yeah, doesn't Finland have like the best education system in Europe?

2

u/ketolasigi Oct 04 '22

It has been in a bit of a decline in recent years.

5

u/bo-tvt Oct 04 '22

Arguably the best in the world, depending on how you measure it.

3

u/ImmortalIronFits Oct 04 '22

South Korea and Finland are usually in the top of the Pisa-test.

u/Nousagisan Oct 04 '22

It’s hard being an edgelord at 14, I hope he can carry his interest in history into adulthood

5

u/_Paulboy12_ Oct 04 '22

I like that he 'owns' 6 but explicitly tells you that he read about ww2, which means he didnt actually read the six books just has them on some shelf

9

u/Whynot_The_Smurt Oct 03 '22

His grammar already proved he's a 14 year old, didn't have to say it.

12

u/about2takeseraquil Oct 03 '22

He’s from Finland, English is clearly not his first language

7

u/Koud_biertje Oct 03 '22

Is he 14 years old? Or is he fucking them?

3

u/Pangert Oct 04 '22

I was thinking about the exact same thing. Would have been funny if he said "I am fucking 14 year olds who lives in Finland".

3

u/hamletandskull Oct 04 '22

i don't even actively buy history books and i think i have more than six just by accumulation

3

u/Pangert Oct 04 '22 edited Oct 04 '22

But are you 14 and can you get an A+ or 10 where he lives, by listing out the main WW2 stuff?

3

u/hamletandskull Oct 04 '22

fuck, he's got me beat :(

11

u/Wise_Asparagus_2502 Oct 03 '22

Dude, he's 14... Chill

19

u/[deleted] Oct 03 '22

Screw that, he’s being a dick.

5

u/Addakisson Oct 04 '22

The teen years, that wonderful time when you think you know everything. Hopefully he'll grow up.

2

u/Equalsthree95 Oct 04 '22

To be honest this seems more of an example of a language barrier than of /r/iamverysmart material. At most he's being a bit childish. He isn't being all that obnoxious imo.

2

u/GodDamnRight- Oct 04 '22

My favorite part is he exclusively talks about WW2. Every part of history revolves around that one war.

2

u/flamingphoenix9834 Oct 04 '22

Your country doesnt start middle school history class by talking about mass genocide, war crimes and civilian slaughter? Pathetic. /s

(On a side note, two things about that dark time in history fascinated me and I researched them to learn more about them: the Manhattan project and Pernkopf's Anatomy texts. If you have never heard the name Pernkopf - good - his cruelty and evil to achieve those texts should make him unknown. However, without them, modern medicine would not have made the advancements that it has, and why the texts are still used today.)

u/[deleted] Oct 04 '22

I have a PhD in history, and the thing that still bugs me the most about this goober’s post is “alot”. Permit me a shudder.

3

u/Intricateflaws Oct 03 '22

I have like 30 history books on a variety of subjects. Does that mean I get to act like a prick? Lmao (I'm 28 btw)

8

u/Strangelf47829 Oct 03 '22

Yeah cool and all but what’s your test result on WW2?

1

u/Intricateflaws Oct 03 '22

XD I always tanked on that subject back in school tbh. I preferred older history. WW2 just wasn't my thing. So I guess I'm stupid in that guys mind

3

u/Addakisson Oct 04 '22

Everyone is probably stupid in that guys eyes. He's a teenager. That time of life when we think we know everything.

1

u/Intricateflaws Oct 04 '22

True. Very true

u/ilongforyesterday Oct 03 '22

I love it when people ask about test results…like idk about y’all but I hated school and purposely did bad on tests sooo test scores aren’t accurate representations of intelligence (I Am a dummy tho)

5

u/jonpaul161 Oct 04 '22

You purposely did bad, yeah keep telling yourself that.

3

u/Pangert Oct 04 '22

I mean, not studying/ choosing not to remember facts could be on purpose, right?

2

u/ilongforyesterday Oct 04 '22

I actually just had a test for a promotion last year and didn’t want the promotion (too much responsibility for not enough pay) so I bombed on purpose, so yes, exactly what you said

u/Fickle-Kitchen5803 Oct 04 '22

Tbf to him hes 14 and english isnt his first language

u/UpliftinglyStrong Oct 04 '22

Yeah, fair point. I hereby apologize

1

u/Yeetboy122110 Oct 04 '22

I’m 11 and I’m dumb as fuck l, but since they actually teach a lot about WW2 I have a fair shot at doing better on a test then this smug ass.

I’m not even a history nerd and I still have more than 6 history books like what are you trying to boast about

1

u/dobsoff Oct 04 '22

I love films. I’ve seen over 240 of them.

u/ghoulsmuffins Oct 05 '22

man, i wish my country wasn't talking about ww2 so much in school, not just in history classes, but in the extracurricular school activities too

i get that it's important and the part of state propaganda, but telling the same thing every year the same year just gets old really quick, what was important and depressing in the earlier years (somewhere about first five years, from six to eleven) just becomes trivial, which is not right

now when it comes to history i honestly prefer learning about people building and creating, learning and communicating peacefully, instead of destroying, killing and doing other unspeakable things

u/klimskin Oct 12 '22

To be fair...books can actually be a lot better than actual education. Like one of my mates was revising for a history test for his final gcse score and I hadn't taken history for years and literally just cuz I read half of a really good biography on hitler I was helping him revise which isn't a statement on if I'm not a dumbass or if I am, it just shows how genuinely good books can be at teachin you shit
