Okay, a couple days ago, I showed my friend this song, and his first initial reaction was: "walking dead??? did they steal that name from the tv show??????@2#". Like really? It's not like the show or the comic books have the term "walking dead" copyrighted or anything, he acts as if that term never existed before that show/comic book series came around.

I tend to stay away from internet illiterate people

The reason I say they're internet illiterate is because internet avid people tend to have a much wider range of musical preferences, leading to people tending to know more obscure bands and groups

It was an honest mistake, I don't understand how that makes him a moron.

See, I'd like to say that I avoid morons, but I interact with quite a few of them, and most of them are quite endearing. Casual oversights - especially ones that require pop culture knowledge and not, you know, actual critical thinking, don't actually factor into why they're simpletons.

Intelligence is, to take the definition, a hearty helping of abstract thought, understanding, self-awareness, communication, reasoning, learning, retaining and some other stuff, but that's all that's relevant to this example. The initial oversight doesn't render him an idiot, but had you had to explain for the next 30 minutes why "The Walking Dead" was a free to use term, and that the comic books were not the first or last to use it, and all he did was stare back at you like a slack-jawed yokel, then it'd be safe to say that you were dealing with a guenuine dipshit.

You like Linkin Park. Your opinion is far too invalid to be calling other people simpletons.

obviously anybody who isn't familiar with the musical genius that is Linkin Park is a simpleton.

In the cult of TvTropes, the comics would be the trope namer I think, so he wins your duel.

You don't sound like much of a friend if you call them simpletons. Really, simpletons?
Arrogant fucktwat.
Linkin Park isn't exactly the height of sophisticated music anyhow.

Why be friends with him at all if you look down on him so?

We're all simpletons when it comes down to it, though. Damned hypocrite.

Looks like your friends have no idea on what's going on than.

I never said he was a moron, I know it was a mistake and all, and I'm not saying that I haven't made mistakes like that in the past, but he pretty much did what you just said.
