Oops, Pow, Surprise!

I'm in a meeting today where another developer made the statement that everyone on the team knew Java and that, "if you know assembler, you know Java." I would say that almost no one in the room programs in assembly language and those that have did so because of a college course requirement. I suspect he wanted his reference to an arcane programming language to somehow elevate him in the eyes of everyone in the room. However, since it was crazy stupid inaccurate it had the opposite effect for anyone in the room that actually knows Java. It was such an idiotic comment that I think it made my brain lockup for a moment.
