Thread: Stupidest People Of The Day Award

  1. #1

    Angry Stupidest People Of The Day Award

    While down by OOOC today, a car comes wizzing by with the driver's little dog completely out of the drivers side window, balancing it rear paws on the door's top edge and it's front paws on the exterior rear view mirror.
    The driver did have 'concern' for his pet, as he had a grip on the dog's tail.
    Which means only one hand on the wheel and his mental, sight, and physical focus on somethings other than driving.

    This is the kind of person that needs to be pulled over, arrested, car impounded, license revoked, and dog taken away for it's safety.
    And maybe the driver pounded for being so stupid!

    I hope this award can't be topped by anyone elses sighting of even worse stupidity.

    Default Ah, I see...

    ...no, maybe I don't.

    Oh well, I just hope Obama picks Jim Webb, and together they save the world from all the stupid people.

    The whackos are the ones who skip around naked protesting fur for PETA, the hardcore environmentalists who would protest an aluminum smelter, and those who would choose to do nothing if a vest bomber blows up a cafe full of women and children, as long as it's not in their town. Oh, and don't forget the folks who think racial separatism is a good thing.

    Obama and Clinton do not qualify as whacko. And only a few on this board actually qualify. It's the fringe I'm talking about. The folks who cling to cognitive dissonance like religion.

    Didn't some lady in Waianae kill a couple a kids and bust up a pregnant mom on a bike a few years ago by driving like that with her dog?

    Ok, maybe it was a few decades ago. But I think it's illegal, all the same.

    Wow...whatta memory you have! If I'm thinking of the same horrific incident (I don't remember the dog), it happened during the early 90s. IIRC, the mom was riding a bike while "towing" her kids who were in a wagon. The roadside memorial was set up for at least a decade. It could still be there, for all I know.

    I don't know if these two guys were considered stupid or crazy? The Croc Hunter and the Grizzly Bear Man.

    The Grizzly Bear guy was misguided. The Croc guy had bad judgement.

    Yeah, that's the one. And the mom was so messed up physically that she was unable to have any more kids. If I remember right, it was because of a lady who was driving with a dog in her lap.

    (I'm not sure my memory is so good as is the urge to remember every single thing I can about Hawaii)

    How about those pro athletes who go through their millions by having too many kids or multi-millionaire Ed McMahon facing foreclosure of his home?

    *cocks eyebrow*

    ed mcmahon was unable to work for a year and a half bcs of a broken neck. his home is hard to sell, not only bcs of the current market, but bcs his neighbors include celebrities who attract hordes of paparazzi. additionally, he gets no money from dvd sales of the tonight show eppies.

    admittedly, part of his problem seems to be overgenerosity, but never would i lump him into any "stupid people" basket because of his financial problems.

    I think people's incredulity over Ed McMahon's problems are basically rooted in the expectation that he likely made millions of dollars way back in the 70's. I don't know if that's true, but I'd guess he did alright over all those years on the Tonight Show. After doing that well, to then be in financial trouble and needing to work at age 85? somehow suggests he may have been a poor money manager.

    Not needed, my friend. Many of us understand the advantages we've long had in this country, and are doing just fine adjusting to the changes as some of them end. We're adaptable, just as you yourself have shown to be.

    I dunno, Leo.

    Work yourself to the bone and all you get is bony fingers. Didn't we used to pity the poor Russian worker?...and now the American one is no better off...tired, running just to keep your head above water, forgetting babies in a hot car from fatigue, being evicted after one month, no job security, no family social help....no disability insurance...

    Yeah, but you know what the American Character is often like - it's so much easier for us to be fooled into thinking we're the best at everything, that the rest of the world is somehow inferior to us, and that "they" all want what "we" have.

    It's a colonial mentality that doesn't die off easily. And it's hard to remove the blinkers when you don't even know that they are on. But some of us know otherwise (I think you are among 'em).

    The decline and fall of the American Empire is as inevitable as it was for all past empires, and it's hard to recognize that it's already here and too late to stop. So you grab onto your potato sack, sit down and hang on for the ride. It's somebody else's turn to be on top of the slide.

    So to keep it on topic: might the "stupidest people" be those who refuse to see beyond their little fiefdoms, worrying only how the increasing gas prices will make it more and more expensive to fill up their gas-sucking hogs?
