What was the most difficult question?

"tell me about XXXXX disease (i had written a paper on it 2 years ago). so i start telling him what i found in the literature back then, and he interrupts and negates every thing i found that was published. then tells me that he is the world's foremost expert on this disease. i replied that maybe i should be asking him these questions then, not the other way around. just seemed like he wanted to trap/make others feel inadequate."
