    7 Times Socrates Was Kind Of A D-Bag

    This is what happens when the Oracle of Delphi tells you you're the wisest person in Athens, I guess.

    1. When he told Ion he flat-out sucked at poetry.

    2. The time he trolled his students into measuring how far a flea can jump.

    3. When he invented the entire Socratic method.

    4. When he insulted someone and then blamed it on a divine spirit taking over his speech.

    5. When he suggested getting "free lunch" for life instead of getting executed.

    6. When his friends break into jail to try to rescue him and he's just like, "Nah, I'm good."

    7. When he gets mad at his friends for crying like "women" at his death.
