It is very difficult not to be arrogant when you are a genius. It took me decades to learn that lesson.
A piece of advice: the majority of people will only believe that if they believe you have significant bankroll.
You don't actually need to have it, but if people perceive you as being rich, to most people, 'you are a genius."
It's going to be virtually impossible to alter somebody's perception on a forum, especially this one.
I'm sure most people think we are all internet trolls living in a trailer park somewhere.Regarding the comedy shows:
the Nielson data is pretty expensive and the rights are exclusive and you don't get redistribution rights without paying more for them. You might see estimates on various websites, but that's not very accurate and the media companies obviously use the real data. From the various sites online that post the estimated numbers, it does seem like those shows have taken a minor hit, but you have the NBA finals in the #1 spot, so it's expected. Once the finals are over those shows should rebound.
