I am not sure if Mr. Forest Gump said that, but it sounds right. The comedian Ron White always says it most aptly: “You can’t fix stupid.” You know that, but you have tried to convince one of them before, and only gotten frustrated in the process. Saying the same thing louder does not work either. Nothing you can do will fix their issue. They could not find a book in a Library. You know the type: If he was dumb as dirt, and he would cover about an acre.
Those annual Darwin Awards directed and acted by The Stupid would be funny, but you know some of them are true and are happening right around you. For example, a Georgia man gets a cell phone and starts looking for an illegal product with it. He sends a text by mistake to his probation officer: “You have some weed?” So the officer notifies the Albany, Georgia police and when they execute a search warrant, they find a bag of cocaine in the texter’s possession which ends him back in prison.
So stupid people are now using tech to do stupid things quicker. Let’s coin a new phrase and call it Cyber Stupidity. You know it happens every day at your own workplace. Don’t you just want to drop kick the “Reply All” people with the stupid and inane response to all. I hope I did not write that out to all, but I was sure thinking it.
Not that it is stupid de facto, but people with way too much time on their hands have listed the hot words of 2014. The word “culture” was at the top pushing out the word “society” to describe a multitude of things. Eliminating the elitist feel of the word society, culture can mean many things when combined with other words, like for example consumer culture. Nostalgia, insidious, legacy, and feminism were other widely-used words in 2014.
The French phrase “je ne sais quoi” clocked in at number six for one reason — a burger commercial where the listener said to the phrase user in response: “Jenna said what?” Again, the topic for this month is stupid. As John Wayne is reported to have said: “Life is hard—It is even harder if you are stupid.”
