Stupid people

DoNotDrinkPeople are stupid.

No, not every person is stupid. I’m not. You’re not. But if you’re at work or school or some other place around a bunch of other folks, look around. A lot of the people you’re looking at are stupid. And, some of your relatives? They’re stupid too. I know some of mine are.

How stupid are people?

Well, according to a survey conducted by the National Science Foundation, around one in four Americans don’t think the Earth revolves around the Sun. Okay, you know and I know that actually, they both revolve around the barycenter of the Sun-Earth pair. But, that point is practically the center of the Sun. So, yeah, for all practical purposes, the Earth revolves around the Sun.

Of course, if you look a little deeper at the survey results, you’ll see this:

Generally, U.S. residents showed a knowledge of science comparable to those of other countries with high levels of education, including Japan, the European Union and South Korea, the NSF said. In fact, they did better than EU residents on the question about whether Earth moves around the sun.

That’s not good news for America, though. It’s simply bad news for the rest of the world. The rest of the world has stupid people in it, too.

But, I don’t really care much that other countries have stupid people. They have kings and prime ministers and want the government to take care of them because they’re incompetent, and stupid to boot.

What bothers me is that we have so many stupid people in the U.S. But we do. Having a hard time believing that? Well, consider that Americans voted for Barack Obama. Twice. The stupid is strong in this country.

    “There’s one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it’s one word long … People. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It’s people that kill every revolution.” – Spider Jerusalem, Transmetropolitan

    Two quotes from fictional characters. A lot of truth in them

  2. 26 percent in U.S. do not know Earth goes around sun

    Obviously these people don’t think which is why they don’t know, kinda like a democrat.

    When asked if they thought Global Warming™ Climate Change® was all white people’s fault, 98% said yes.
