    Someone once said to me

    "Some people are like slinkeys. You just love seeing them fall down stairs."

    Probably the same reason an accident on the highway causes a slowdown in both directions. Even though if the accident is in the southbound side, in theory, the northbound side shouldn’t be affected, it’s backed up. People can’t look away.

    Stupidity is caused by low intelligence which also causes lack of common sense and the power of reason. The majority of the world's population has below average IQ's. Over half the US population is comprised of low IQ people.

    Because they set the example for the rest of us..of what not to do. Plus you can make bets on which drool will hit the floor first.

    I think with reference to the individual and the elk. The guy treated the situation like a Vegas show and figured being brave and at the top of the food chain was enough. He didn’t access the danger or realise we are only at the top of the food chain at the supermarket.

    How very true. That's why stupid is more dangerous than evil because I truly believe there are far more stupid people than evil ones.
