How the hell do you cut your own leg while puncturing a tire? Had to be alcohol involved.

More from the "some people just shouldn't be allowed to breed" category:

http://fox2now.com/2017/02/01/madison-county-parents-charged-in-infant-death-after-deplorable-home-conditions/

Quote :
Police say the conditions inside the home were, "deplorable." There were at least seven children living in the home with the parents. Investigators say they have never seen living conditions as bad as this. There are rooms with trash piled to the ceiling, dog feces are everywhere.

Every person who lived in the home slept on one mattress placed on the floor.

Wow, how would you even know? The house looks like a decent place from the outside. There's got to be some form of mental illness with those parents.

Or drugs.

I thought the same thing when I first saw the house from the outside; looks pretty normal.

I think he's a little young for Richard Simmons.

Whenever I hear of Richard Simmons, I always remember this:

Thank you liberal progressives!

Good grief, government intrusion into every aspect of our lives. "...high school started screening students' lunch boxes..." Seriously?I don't know where this occurred but it doesn't really matter because the same thing is happening all over.

GET THE F*** OUT OF OUR LIVES ALREADY!!!! If I want my child to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and have a candybar for dessert it's none of the school's damn business! If they paid half as much attention to the quality of teachers in the schools we'd all be better off.

Yeah, there seems to be a segment of society that likes to stick their nose almost everywhere it doesn't belong.

I keep saying it but writer CM Kornbluth sure was prophetic when he wrote "The Marching Morons" short story back in the 50s.

https://www.popsugar.com/tech/Math-Test-Question-Stumps-Parents-41259705

Good grief even a "teacher" couldn't figure it out. I think it's because today's society can't relate to the question. It should be something like:

"Kim Kardashian was counting her money. She spent $19 million on clothing and jewelry during a Hollywood spending spree. Then she took in $17 million from the numbnuts who actually think she has any talent whatsoever.She now has $63 million in the bank. How much money did Kim have to begin with?"

Here's the wiki summary of the Marching Morons. I read this story waaaaay back when I was in about 6th grade and it made such an impact on me. It's so dark...

Quote :
The story is set hundreds of years in the future: the date is 7-B-936. John Barlow, a man from the past put into suspended animation by a freak accident involving a dental drill and anesthesia, is revived in this future. The world seems mad to Barlow until Tinny-Peete explains the Problem of Population: due to a combination of intelligent people not having children and excessive breeding by less intelligent people (see Fertility and intelligence), the world is full of morons, with the exception of an elite few who work slavishly to keep order. Barlow, who was a shrewd real estate con man in his day, has a solution to sell to the elite, in exchange for being made World Dictator.

The human population is now 3,000,000 highbred elite and 5,000,000,000 morons, and the "average" IQ is 45 (whereas in the real world, an IQ score of 100 is average, by definition). Several generations before the onset of the story, the small number of remaining 100-and-higher-IQ technocrats, ignored by the general public about the impending population problem, work feverishly to keep the morons alive.
The elite have had little success in solving the Problem (also called "Poprob", for 'population problem', in the story) for several reasons:

  • The morons must be managed or else there will be chaos, resulting in billions of deaths;
  • It is not possible to sterilize all of the morons;
  • Propaganda against large families is insufficient, because every biological drive is towards fertility (the story predates the development of hormonal contraception).

The elite had tried everything rational to solve the population problem, but the problem could not be solved rationally. The solution required a way of thinking that no longer existed Barlow's "vicious self-interest" and knowledge of the distant history.
Barlow derives a solution based on his experience in scamming people into buying worthless land and knowledge of lemmings' mass migration into the sea: convince the morons to travel to Venus in spaceships that will kill their passengers out of view of land. (The story predates the moon landing, and the safety of space travel is summed up in a description of a rocket that crashed on the moon.) Propaganda depicts Venus as a tropical paradise, with "blanket trees", "ham bushes" and "soap roots". In a nationalistic frenzy, every country tries to send as many of their people to Venus as possible to stake their claim.
Barlow's help includes using his knowledge of Nazi propaganda tactics: postcards are sent from the supposedly happy new residents of Venus to relatives left behind, describing a wonderful, easy life, in the same way as fraudulent postcards were sent to relatives of those incinerated in the Nazi death-camps.
Barlow is cheated by his erstwhile assistants. Barlow does not realize that the elite despise him as they despise all people from the past for having not solved The Problem earlier. In the end, Barlow is placed on a spaceship and sent to share the fate of his victims.

There certainly ARE a lot of morons in the world. And there are a lot of great quotes about stupid people.
