Subject: The Arrogant/Obnoxious Engineer is from Lakehead
This is why he spends his life on these forums trying to convince people that he is great. To make up for going to the shittiest University in Canada, where engineering students are accepted with low 70´s, he posts about how everyone who isn´t an engineer is shit and engineering is the only degree that matters. You see, he has two cognitions that contradict each other. On one hand, he goes to a crappy school and is ashamed, and on the other he is studying a field that is respected. To overcome this dissonance, he is trying overcompensate and convince himself that engineering is such a great profession that it outways the fact that he goes to a shitty school. One way of convincing himself of this is by using these forums to (1) outwardly preach his superiority to others and (2) by putting all others down who are not also engineers.

The Lakehead is certainly unaware of this since this process is going on in his subconscious. He will deny it fervently, but rest assured, he is subconsciously deeply ashamed and in turmoil. lol.

I have two theories about him: 1) a loner from either ryerson or uoft engineering who´s favorite pastime is this forum, or 2) Valeri Fabrikant (google him) from prison. Either way, he needs to get out and get some sun.

I don´t know any UofT and Waterloo engineers who go around saying they are the superior beings. This kid is from Lakehead, or going to Lakehead.

UofT students do not think they are superior? What the world stopped revolving?

You lost me at "McGill > UofT" !

Listen, McGill is a great school, but UofT is better, and has been for a long time now. You can put together fancy facts just like I can, and we won´t get anywhere. Instead of starting another pointless debate, let´s just compromise and conclude that both are Canada´s best.
