Stupidity

Is it just me, or is the world getting stupider at an alarming rate? I never really noticed this before because up until then, I was too busy dealing with my personal shit-storm of problems to even take notice. Then the day came when the cold, hard truth knocked me flat on my ass. That day was when a certain person (who shall henceforth be referred to as "that dumbass") came up to me and asked me a question. You see, that dumbass had just received a new laptop a week prior to our meeting, and was musing over a simple problem which he/she was only too eager to ask me for help with. That dumbass went, "My laptop is too heavy. Do you think that it will get lighter if I delete some files?". Let me give you a second to let that sink in. That dumbass thought that the files inside his/her laptop were responsible for making the laptop too heavy. Even though I was laughing my ass off on the outside, I swear that I felt a huge chill crawl down my spine as I looked around and came to this realization: We are surrounded by dumbasses.

The signs are everywhere. Video games are getting easier (a rant about this in the future), people can't spell to save their lives, and movies/television shows which have actual plots rate lower than stereotyped Asian telenovelas. Hell, even the invention of the Mac is a sign. "Oh no!! I forgot which side is left and which side is right again!! Thank God my Mac only has one button for clicking. Now I don't have to know the difference!! Yay Apple!!". Fucking Mac users. They should all go play in traffic. I don't even know why stupidity doesn't make it in the news. God knows that it's behind every single bad thing that's fucking with our world. Take the war in Iraq for example. Have you ever seen George Bush? Note the glazed look in his eyes. Nuff' said. I say, fuck global warming. Fuck terrorism. The real threat is stupidity. Stupidity is a sickness of epidemic proportions, and once you've caught it, there's no turning back. In fact, it's getting so bad that you may even want to start considering wearing a helmet just in case one of those retarded dipshits get a whiff of your brain. To be honest, I'd take a zombie apocalypse over a world full of morons any day. At least with the zombies, you're permitted to go postal and shoot the shit out of every drooling, brain-dead thing that passes by.

And you know what's even worse than your run-of-the-mill idiot? An idiot who denies that he's an idiot. You know the type. The ones who walk around thinking that they're the smartest person to walk the earth, keeping up a farce of poorly-feigned intelligence with a wall of big words that they just pulled out of their ass. Some days, I just wish that a truck full of donkey doo-doo dumplings would pop out of nowhere and run these dickheads over. Twice. Oh well. A man can dream. As for pointing out their obvious idiocy to them? A word of advice. Never get into an argument with an idiot. He'll just drag you down to his level, and beat you with experience.

You know if you think about it, the only thing keeping these morons alive are safety labels. If it weren't for safety labels, people with IQ's normally reserved for fungi are sure to die out. Idiots would start running around with scissors, putting metallic objects in the microwave, and start wondering what electrical sockets taste like. So do your part, and start removing any safety labels on dangerous items so that the problem can start solving itself. Who knows? Maybe one day, we can finally stop dancing around dumbasses and solve world hunger or something. How many safety labels have you removed today?

OMG!!!
"My laptop is too heavy. Do you think that it will get lighter if I delete some files?"
Tell "that dumbass" that he/she should delete all the files including the OS (would he/she even know what that is?!) and carry it with him/her everyday. He'll get used to the weight and eventually thank you for "decreasing" the weight of his laptop!

Where is the world going into? I'd rather live in a small room alone than talking to those stupid ones. >_<

Holy shit, a PERSON really said that. What the hell is going on with the world?

Heh. No worries Ivonne, my friends are exempt from the content of my rants.

Also, I wasn't aware that some Macs have mice that have 5 buttons. I tend to avoid Macs like the plague. Thanks for the heads up though.

Either the person is following some trend or is incredibly stupid.

you don't suppose 'the one on the notebook' is a new addition to some computer language er something?

I would prolly give the guy the good ol eyebrow raise if he ever approaches me with that question, but then again prolly it's the first time he's ever seen or held a laptop, much more, perhaps he's never had a desktop to work with in his entire life.

Tell him the only way to make the laptop lighter is if he gives it to me and forget about it.. then he won't have to carry it anymore.. hahaha

True, I do believe that the world is going to the dogs. Although I cannot say that the rest of the world's great minds are depleting, I can say that here, it seems like mediocrity is tolerated and therefore excused as a way of life.

The mind functions and improves depending on what is fed to it - apparently when you feed it crap, you'll end up getting an even bigger piece of sh*t.

Come to think of it, taking safety labels off of everything would solve world hunger, too.
