Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Nietzsche: "I have spent ten years on the mountain, but I'm tired of being super wise all the time. I shall descend down unto the people, and give them the gift of my wisdom."

Nietzsche, in front of a crowd: "People, gather around and hear my words of wisdom."

Nietzsche: "All of you are...stupid as hell. Thus spoke Zarathustra!"

Nietzsche: "God is dead!"
Person in crowd: "ohhh, cool, now we don't have to obey him."

Nietzsche: "What? No, not cool you little shits. We have killed him, now we have to be God ourselves."

Nietzsche: "Are you great enough to replace God?!"

Nietzsche, pointing to someone else: "How about you? Huh? Can you ground all meaning in society?"

Person: "Well, i thi..."

Nietzsche: "Huh? Huh? Huh? Can you?!"

Nietzsche: "No. You can't. None of you can, because you are all a bunch of losers who only know how to follow other even bigger losers."
Nietzsche: "Now it is time that i teach you about the overman. Man is something to be overcome. What have you done to overcome him?"

Nietzsche: "All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is the ape to man? A laughingstock or a painful embarrassment. And so is man to the overman."

Nietzsche: "That would make you the apes in this metaphor."

Nietzsche: "I am the overman, if you didn't pick that up."

Nietzsche: "On account of how much better i am than you."

Description: there is a long pause in silence.

Nietzsche, annoyed: "Why are none of you writing this down?"
"You know what, screw you guys, you obviously don't get me. Nobody gets me!"
