I sometimes wonder if scientists have ever computed the density of stupid.
Lead is fairly dense and yet it is only half as dense as the metal osmium. Platinum, gold and mercury are pretty dense also. Mercury is so dense that lead will float on it.
But stupid has to be the densest element by far. It never ceases to amaze me how much stupid some people can stuff into such small heads.
What brought on this rant? Well golly, it could be so many things.
Perhaps it was the kids I saw skateboarding while wearing helmets. Yes, their helmets provided wonderful protection as they were skateboarding right down the middle of the street.
Maybe it was the guy I saw driving down the street with a cell phone in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other. What he was using to steer, I won’t even try to guess.
Or who knows? It could have been the guy I saw working on his gutters, using a corded electric power drill ... in the rain.
Anyone who thinks that negative numbers have no applications in the real world has never considered the intelligence of some of the people who live among us.
