Whatever happened to dismissing something just because it was stupid? How many times in the past could we rely on this evaluation when deciding to do or not do something? I won’t eat that cookie I found on the road yesterday when I was taking a walk because “that’s just stupid.” Maybe it is stupid because of some underlying criteria you could reference, but you don’t need to go that far in your assessment. It is just stupid, so you don’t eat the moldy cookie.
I never realized that I have as much common sense as I know now. Starting in May '20 I started to think the whole thing sounded stupid. I had just learned at the end of 2019who fauci really was. How I wished everyone had learned about him. But big pharma liars kept everything secret for years. When I was recovering from a near death experience in 2013 (brain surgery) one day I was hugging a tree and sobbing and asking God why everything was so upside down and when was he planning on fixing it? So during the summer '20 I realized it was going to be time for something big because humanity was in the dark. So many are still in the dark and I can't believe my adult daughters still seem to think it's about politics. Faith and freedom 🌟🙏✨❤️
"....you don’t take a walk in a dicey part of the city in the middle of the night because “that’s just stupid.” ..." Nope. I did it. It was a good experience. What is the "dicey" part of the city anyways? How do you know those persons are so bad? Did you ever take a walk through it? Have you talked to them?
This is really really good Todd.... now if only my family would read this. But they won't, and that's just stupid!
it's very good post Todd. In past few years I have been using STOOPID to indicate that whatev is happening is gone to new levels of stupid. I also sometimes use more directed stoopid labels such as misogynostoopid, transtoopid, plandemstoopid. I like to make up words.
My sister-in-law chided me for using the word stupid. It was a few years ago, and weirdly I obliged for a while. But then sanity returned and I told her in no uncertain terms that I would indeed continue to use the word stupid and would never censor myself. She has Borderline Personality Disorder so any conversation with her is a distortion field.
Your mention of the word gullible reminded me of an old joke: “I heard the world gullible has been removed from the dictionary. Is that true?”
I'm with you.
Never go full retard.
It's pretty common for folks to go full retard these days.
Oddly enough I have never trusted the government. The harder they push the more they lie.
By trusting Fauci the whole damn bunch was stupid. Operation Warp Speed was a political game by an ill informed President and lowered my opinion of the Government even further. Trump was surrounded by many back stabbing liars many of us though were on his side.
Sadly I watched many friends and family line up as lab rats because they trusted ill informed folks and outright genocidal criminals.
Now we have a population carrying VAIDS that is apparently spread easier than AIDS according to blood work being done by doctors that are interested enough to research it.
Watch for a future push to legalize prostitution as supposedly another way to raise tax money. It won't be stupid on the genocide or population reduction part because killing people they deem as stupid is their evil plan.
The GOVERNMENT already managed to hook a lot of young stupid people on pot that is 10:times stronger than that of the sixties. But what the hell, it raises tax money off of more stupid decisions and aids the sale of far worse drugs the money changer politicians can launder into their pockets. By the way, I have recently heard of some liberal politicians suggesting legalizing prostitution
From philosopher Forest Gump. "Stupid is as stupid does."
Stupid is substandard intelligence, n'est-ce pas? If you look at intelligence as the ability to adapt rationally to a changing environment, as it is considered in many different disciplines, then the adage "once burnt shame on you, twice burnt shame on me" should apply. I was listening to a podcast between Roseanne Barr and JP Sears, and he asked her if she thought that this newest wave of the pandemic would produce the same kind of vaccine uptake or did she think more people have woken up. I must say, I feel just like her. People who were conned the first time will be conned again, because they ARE stupid. Just watch: it will be more difficult for them to admit a mistake, even a life-threatening one, than to carry on, willy-nilly, with self-destructive behavior under the guise of being a good citizen and secretly hoping the odds are in their favour. I think that at least a third of the population is truly stupid (and on bad days, the 2nd 'undecided' third AND those short term thinkers stupid enough to endanger themselves because of a job - how will you provide for your family if you are maimed or killed by swallowing this muck?), and like her I think that they will continue to be stupid, because they lacked the intelligence in the first place to see what they were doing was stupid. It doesn't take a degree in rocket science* to question the wisdom of sticking unknown, untested (except by the biggest fraudsters on the planet) substances in your body. At the very LEAST common sense demands a precautionary principle to anyone who has two neurons to rub together. (* Apparently, a degree in rocket science is no indication of stupid either, as I personally know of such a scientist who, unthinkingly, followed the vaccine program, and got a turbo cancer, and died.)
🇬🇧 “He had just about enough intelligence
to open his mouth when he wanted to eat,
but certainly no more.”

Thank you, T.H. The words "stupid" and "stupidity" are fine words. And (I confess!) they can be applied to many of my own actions throughout my adult life. Thankfully, my stupidity hasn't yet proven terminal...hence a beautiful word: "Learning" <3
I think the word stupid was the correct choice to use in this piece.
I would have chosen idiot, but understand that the word is rude and offensive.
But it kinda fits...
Misdiagnosed due to misgendering? What a kick in the nuts that must've been!
My niece (a bright girl) and I have had conversations about how stupid people are. I've said that eighty percent of people are idiots. My niece says, "They're all fucking idiots!"
Maybe we are. I guess we're all doomed. :^)
Not dismissing something because it's stupid is not a new thing, it's the eternal human condition. As in, let's burn these women alive because we think they might be witches. As in, guys with a comfortable life and wives and kids depending on them answer the call to join their psychopathic leader's legions to invade, kill, and rob their neighboring tribes, and likely be maimed or killed themselves. As in, believe the tenets of the religion you were born into MUST all be true, in spite of the fact if you were born a thousand miles in any direction, or a few hundred years before or after, everyone around you would be telling you to believe something entirely different. Western society has degraded to the point our leadership and all institutions are utterly failing, so the stupidity that was always there is flourishing now. We notice it more since it's rapidly destroying everything.
Oh... an additional comment, Todd. I guess you are aware that if there are younger shrews around here, who did not read Superman comics when they were kids (like we old geezers did), they will not know what is the Bizarro World.
Good topic – needs airing – thank you.
Looking back, I seem to have dedicated my life to stupid – although too stupid to be aware of the fact! It is part of life, learning (hopefully) by mistakes.
But, the stupid regarding the maiming of children is something else.
The stupid here were not alone to make mistakes: they were accompanied by a variety of the deficient who had their own pathetic, self-promoting agendas. The stupid were - led, herded, trained, conditioned, coerced, seduced, pressured, confused and rewarded.
Of course, later, when the effects of stupid decisions were manifest, the victims were abandoned.
We can safely assume that the motives behind the imposition of this type of criminal stupid are the destruction of firm societal foundations in order to make way for ‘building back bonkers,’ thanks to the maniacal wishes of the globalists and their delusional mega-stupidities.
