We had a member here not too long ago (Heywood Jahblome) who seemed to honestly believe that he could become an expert on anything by spending 5 minutes on the internet. Quantum physics? Lebesgue integration? No problem -- I'll just go read a Wikipedia article, and I'll know as much as anyone with a Ph.D. in Physics or Mathematics. It's hard to believe that anyone could really think like this, but he seemed to. He also claimed that reading a brief summary of the plot of a novel was a valid substitute for reading the novel itself. Ah, the internet age...

Heywood was the king of the Dunning–Kruger effect.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again... until you're dumber than a box of fossil-containing rocks, which Satan put there in order to confuse us. He most probably is - this kind of aggressive idiocy and refusal to learn rarely change.

RE: Ranting corner
We had bad storms here again the other night...luckily they missed us this time but more are on the way.

The radio station I listen to on the way to work played a clip of a voicemail left by a woman who was PISSED that her power was out and had been for several hours.

She wanted to know why the local electric utility didn't put something out on TV regarding updates on the outage so she would know when she would be able to wash her hair.

Let that sink in...she is sitting in her house angry because there isn't a message being flashed on her TV screen regarding the power outage so she can make personal hygiene plans.

Facepalm

They walk among us my friends.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

The stupid have taken over, we have to face facts. It's like the cop who called 911 after eating pot brownies and said he thought he was dead because time was moving really really really slow.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
