there must be some people out there who would accept their greatness as gospel.
Is there an advantage to saying it?

Posted:I think that it should be for someone else to say that a particular person is the best in the world (more objective, less narcissistic). It's also a bit more credible when someone else sings your praises, instead of blowing your own horn. sunny

So, as they were joking, I'd probably laugh along and agree smile

Posted:just 3 days ago I met this juggler guy from oz.
and he told me that he was the best hat juggler around.
and that he was a complet geek.

well with in 10 mins I had out geeked him on the juggling side of things. tongue
and with in 30 mins I had showen him 2 hat tricks he had not seen. tongue tongue
I have to admit, that I am not saying that I am the best I know that is not true.
I only know about 10 hat tricks.
and there are lots better than me.
including him.
Its just that we all know different things.

just how do you define the best at something.
I have been juggling now for 4 years.
and I still meet people that have juggled for less than 1 year.
and they will do a trick that I have not seen, or cant do.

and I am quite proud of my juggling skill's

also the little poi I do, all cosists of stalls, wraps, hyper loops and Isolation
but there are a lot of people that are better and dont do theses tricks

you can be good. you can be realy good.
but there will always be someone that can do different things to you.

I was once showen up in the juggling shop that I worked in.
and it proved to me that you can never tell what the person next to you can do.

there is nothing wrong with being a bit humble in what you do.
If not you only set yourself up to be shot down.

people will be more surprised if you say you are ok, or not that bad at something.
and if you turn out better than they thought.
its nicer for them, and better on you.

right im off to learn reverse flowers now.
cos cole told me it should be my next trick.
and I dont do them forwards yet.
and all the ones I do are so old now

Knowing what your strengths are isn't a bad thing, however, bragging about them is....because, usually, the universe will step in and teach you a little bit about humility.

What if your Bender Lee, oh i mean Bruce wink The guy was so awsome, i could watch his stuff over and over and still never get bored. (/me thinking about watching it again!)



How about Michael Schumacher! He is the best, imagine him going into a bar and saying "im am the best in the world" ubblol That guy would seriously pull some... biggrin



All im trying to say is this poll is a lil 1 sided. Sure there are always idoits who claim it, but in saying that there is the odd person who actually are...



So reserve my rite wink to not vote.

Posted:i think the only time someone can be the best in the world is if they have won the world championships; and even then there is still a grey area!

in general, i would say no, i wouldnt believe them; but yes, there would be the occasional person who would be correct. but if someone is the best in the world, i would hope they would have a bit more modestly than to just announce it!

i also agree with vixen in that often people say stuff like that for their own self encouragement.


i would have changed ***** to phallus, and claire to petey Petey

Posted:i see someone as being the best as someone i think is the best at something i mean its subject to opinion. someone who i consider the best isnt gona be someone say the next guy would consider as the best i think it goes on what ur preferences are really, so if someone said they are the best id only believe them once ive seen them in action, but yeah as said before i dont think any one person knows everything there is to know in there chosen feild theres always gona be someone who knows something different so i guess there is no true best

And at least I wont have the pressure needing to live up to the accolade of being the best. When I get dangerously close at being good at something I change toy.

I agree that you cannot have an altimate *best* at anything.... even if there were championships and all that... there could be amazing people out there doing awesome stuff that no-one even knows about.

Posted:the only way to truly be the best in the world is to be the only in the world for without fail there will be some old guy on a hill with long hair bushy eyebrows beard flopping around his ankles jumping off trees doing moves with his stuff that is in all sense physically impossible so remember theres always a small guy with a long beard who will show u up

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potato's.

Posted:i completley agree!! It doesn't matter if you are the worlds best, actually that would get realy boring, but rather that you are your own best. It is fun to compete with other people though b/c you can learn from them and they can learn from you.

You can't avoid pain by fencing yourself from it.
Some times you need the help of others more than anything else
But you have to let them close enough to help......
