n., pl, -ties. 1. the state, quality,
or fact of being stupid.
Stupidity is such a complex word. I mean, it’s not just being
stupid; instead, it’s the state, quality, or fact of being
stupid. Wow, so deep and so profound. You know what? It is so amazing
how much stupidity mankind displays. I have lately been finding
my jaw dropping to the floor at some of the things that I see and
hear. Stupidity pretty much just makes me mad. A few years ago there
were these bumper stickers that said “mean people suck”
on them. Well, on the way to the Ocoee River with my high school
youth group, we passed a car that had the “mean” portion
of the bumper sticker cut out, so it read “people suck.”
At first I was rather offended by this; however, after pondering
that complex phrase, I started to realize the truth in this blundering.
People just absolutely make me mad. So you think I’m bitter
now, huh? Well I have news for you…..I AM BITTER, OKAY? So
get off my back.
I keep hearing all this about “drama.”
At first, I just thought that this really good drama troupe was
performing around town. When I found out that it was just a code
word for people having relationship problems, I was so disappointed.
In fact, this was a rather good example of the stupidity of mankind.
Drama has to do with acting, yet relationships are usually rather
real. So are these people putting on plays for everyone with their
relationships? If they are, sell me a ticket and pop me some popcorn.
NO, I don’t want to see it, or hear about it, so if I hear
one more girl talk about “drama” before class, I think
I’m going to snap.
Okay, so are you enlightened enough on the stupidity?
Well in case you’re not, here’s the top 5 stupid things
about humanity as I know it.
– annoying voices – You can hear these at an
assortment of places. If you go turn on the radio, you’ll
probably hear one. All the “rock” stations play these
stupid bands that all have the same annoying whiner voices. It all
started with Blink 182, and followed with every other punk rock
bands. I’m sick of them. Another place is just about any college
classroom. There’s at least one girl in there that will be
talking as loud as possible and at the highest octave possible.
These voices just make me want to lash out at them and tell them
how much detriment they’re having on society.
– arguers – WOW! You know those people who
would argue with a light pole about what color it was? Yeah, those
people make me very mad. No matter what you say and how much proof
you give them that they’re flat out wrong, they’ll still
argue with you. Just shut up and accept the fact that you’re
– clichés – This probably defines the
word stupidity. If you have to use a cliché to get a “profound”
point across, you need to be on permanent talking restriction. I
grew up around phrases like, “what goes around comes around”
and “you can’t always get what you want.” I seriously
cringe every time I hear a cliché used. It flat out sickens
me. I just want to shake the person that utters the nonsense and
ask them if they realize how really stupid they sound. Okay, I’m
getting to worked up over this one, on to #2….
– people that stress out – Man, you talk about
something contagious. Stress is very contagious and I want no part
of it. When I’m around people that stress out, I just flat
out get angry. I can’t stand it when people say, “I’m
so stressed about this test, blah blah blah…” I don’t
want to hear it. I’ve recently been accepted to pharmacy school
and even though I realize that this is a big deal and I have a great
responsibility to do well in school so I can provide quality health
care to those in need of it, I do not want to hear about school
outside of class or the library. When I am not studying, I don’t
want to hear about how hard a test was. Please, just relax and take
a break. Some people obviously do not know how to do this. They
don’t know how to have a conversation about anything but school
and that’s just no way to go through college. How bout discussing
something a little bit more important or even a little more relaxing?
I just do not want to be talking about chemistry reactions all day
long when I do not have to. No offense to glycolysis or anything,
but reactions have no personality. I do not want to be known as
the stooge with no personality. I’d much rather be known as
the angry guy than the guy that was tragically born without a personality!
– bad drivers – There is no doubt that bad
drivers are the epitome of the stupidity of mankind. There is nothing
worse than getting behind a tag that has 43 or 46 as the first two
letters. (Oh wait, yes there is, but I’ll get to that in a
moment) I have the pleasure to live in a very peaceful place in
between the Auburn and Loachapoka city limits. The drive to campus,
however, is not quite as peaceful. Highway 14 is the road that I
use to drive into campus. It is a strait 2 lane road that I have
to drive about 7 miles on before I turn. The speed limit on this
road is 55 MPH. However, I think there is an unspoken law in the
county that you MUST go 40 miles per hour on this road. Not only
this, but there is double lines the whole way to campus, so it is
nearly impossible to pass these people. I don’t guess they
have to be in that big of a hurry to get anywhere, but I know one
thing, I do because I want to have a career one day unlike them.
These people should get tickets for just being bad drivers. The
only people that somewhat rivals these locals in the lack of driving
skills are college girls on cell phones. When I see a girl on a
cell phone, my eyes do not leave their vehicle until they are safely
200 feet away from me. There is nothing more frightening than seeing
a girl having one hand securely fastened to her phone which is stuck
to her ear and the other hand flailing in the air at the imaginary
person in front of her while she is driving. How in the world can
she drive? I know for a fact that women’s minds are quite
complex. This means that they need to focus all the energy of their
brain that is not filled up on driving. When they add a cell phone
to the equation, you can forget about their brain functioning on
driving. Nope, it’s all on that conversation, and I can really
just see myself having to step out of my vehicle and flail my arm
at a real person when she hits me.
Sorry I’m such a grinch, but humans make me
