Superficial and Stupid is Not a Good Combo

Do you remember the bombing at the Boston Marathon? I do because I knew a couple of people in the race. It took several hours to find out they were safe. Which they were and are. Before we begin I will be the first to admit that there are a couple of unanswered questions; (1) “Why was there a shoot out if the kid didn’t have a gun?” springs to mind and is followed by; (2) “How is it legal to buy that much fireworks without a permit?” Beyond that,…

Too Stupid To Steal

The nice people over at Cracked Magazine have noted that the world is full of stupid people who have internet access. Judging by the article I am guessing they will soon discover, and write about the fact, that there is a planet full of air outside and we are all welcome to breathe it. Regular readers here do not need the obvious pointed out to them. They have figured out the basic stuff and come here for a more in depth analysis of the human condition. Which, as far as…

Can People Really Be This Stupid?

Yesterday I wrote about the dumbest job in the universe, wild crocodile wrestling (no experience necessary). I mentioned that there would be a lot of Floridians missing a limb or two.

But, yesterday, the 63-year-old Wallace Weatherholt, who must have been an idiot all his life to think this was a good idea, reached over the edge of an air-boat he was captaining to feed a wild alligator. The wild gator said “Why thank you…

Stupid is as Stupid Does

Good morning campers. Here’s hoping you’re all having a wonderful day. As many of you know summer is coming up and it is the traditional time for weddings.

There’s only so much beer and porn seems inappropriate for this occasion. Luke McKinley may have just the answer; the spring loaded genital noose lovingly known as…

Where Do All The Stupid People Come From?

Every year people like you and I bemoan the ravages on the human intellect. It seems that screaming has become the new discourse and wild conjecture the new science. From people believing, without a shred of proof, that our president is a Kenyan native who practices Islam to the fun folks who use pocket calculators to predict the end of the world, we do seem to be surrounded by morons. But, you have to ask, is this a new thing? In many ways, no. There have been stupid people forever.…

Say Yes to NOVID

Thanks to some astute readers of this blog, and listeners to The Big Wakeup Call, I was introduced to a fascinating new app. Called NOVID, it’s way for you to assess your risk of catching the disease. While COVID-19 is not the most lethal virus known to man, that would be Ebola, it is, by far, the most pernicious. And, only now are scientists beginning to figure out how damaging it is. As of this writing approximately twenty percent of survivors suffer some degree of organ damage. I have a…
