The only true wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing.
Socrates obviously knows that it's you.

Going socrates is when somebody youre talking to starts to question things that are obvious to shift blame away from themselves when they are guilty. They take on the veneer of a philosopher to confuse the matter instead of owning up to the truth.

And some of you need to remember, this is not an encyclopedia. These other definitions have no place here. We have the rest of the internet to learn about socrates.
Derek: "Hey, remember that time when you were totally fucking drunk and almost wrecked when you drove home?"

Saul: "I wasnt that drunk, I mean what is drunk anyways? Is it five beers, or fifteen? Is it being loud and having fun, or passed out pissing yourself?"

Derek: "Oh god, its socrates again..."

Socrates is pronounced "so-CRA-tease" not "SOCK-ruh-tis". Most people don't realise this and don't care to.
