guys! How you be this week? I’m doing great at this end. Been brainstorming like a crazy woman…literally. LOL And
trying to write. Secret—that part’s not
going quite as well. But I’ll get there. Really, I will. My WIP needs to be 85-90K and I have 72K…almost
to the finish line. Yeah!!! The problem I’m having with this story is
that Delta’s brother, Bubba Ray, is throwing me curve balls and doing stuff he’s
not supposed to do. Guess the apples
never fall far from the tree. LOL
it’s my turn to blog again this week and—shocker—I’ve been at a loss all day as
to what to write about, which always has the tendency to send me to the
internet searching for a topic. Today’s
topic turns out to be S-T-U-P-I-D-I-T-Y.
So I looked up the definition: behavior that
shows a lack of good sense or judgment.
Really? I’ve seen stupid and so
have you…and that definition is missing something. Stupidity is sooo much more than just a lack of good sense or judgment. So, what say we do some research and see what
we can find on what other people say about stupidity. K? All
right…here are some quotes I found out there on the World-wide-web about
How big and pervasive is stupidity?
things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about
― Albert Einstein
Think about how stupid the average
person is, and then realize that half of ‘em are stupider than that.
Sad but true—that’s
how the math works, folks. Sigh. That last quote threw a cold bucket of water
on my hopes. Half of all the people
stupider than the average is one hell of a lot of stupid!
“Some scientists claim that hydrogen,
because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I
dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the
basic building block of the universe.”
― Frank Zappa
“There is more stupidity than hydrogen
in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.”
― Frank Zappa
Okay, who knew the late Frank Zappa was so informed? My first thought was that perhaps all those
mind-altering drugs in the sixties had actually given him some insight. Then I did a little research into Frank Zappa
and found him named as one of the Top 15 Non-Druggy Musicians on the Louder
than War website. http://louderthanwar.com/non-druggy-musicians/+ What? Really?
And…shocker…he had a soul patch in his high school yearbook picture. Who knew?
I have a whole new appreciation for Frank Zappa…anti-drugs AND
Now here are
some more quotes I found on how rampant stupidity is…
“He was stupid. If I killed everyone who
was stupid, I wouldn't have time to sleep.”
― Tamora Pierce
we go. We train our children with pain
and consequences…let’s do that! Oh wait—those
stupid adults came from children. Hmmm…I’m
thinking someone didn’t do their job when it came to inflicting pain and
handing out consequences. (No ugly
letters please…you know I’m being a smart-ass.)
stupidity, God himself is helpless. (say
it ain’t so!!!)
don’t want to think about this last one.
Because when all else fails, I want a higher power to turn to in hopes
of eliminating the problem. Oh wait…that
higher power is the one that created all those stupid people. ARGH!
There is no hope…he loves them.
The bottom line on stupidity…
Don’t try to explain yourself to stupid
people. You’re not the jackass whisperer.
what we’ve learned here today is that stupidity is everywhere, it has no shelf
life, it comes with balls, it should be painful and have consequences, killing them
isn’t an option, you can’t argue with them, sometimes other maladies such as
crazy are preferable, it tests our anger management skills, it brings out
sarcasm, it isn’t a sin to protect yourself from it, and…leave them alone…you
are NOT the jackass whisperer!
about you? Got a favorite quote about
stupidity? Got a good “stupid”
story? I’d love to hear it.
for tuning in. Stay safe, stay happy,
stay away from rampant stupidity…it can be contagious. Just ask Stupid Girl!!!
my story, stupid and sad, and I’m stickin’ to it. Hang on tight now, ‘cuz we’re gonna go real,
