On Stupidity: What Can Be Done to Reduce it?

2009/11/10
  1. Teen falls into manhole while texting
  2. Drunk woman drowns in creek trying to escape police sobriety check point
  3. Plaxico Buress shoots self with own gun; is imprisoned on firearms conviction

I recommend that people who do really stupid things should be gently encouraged by friends and loved ones to enroll in a remedial kindergarten course. There they could be taught valuable skills such as

  1. common sense,
  2. how to follow rules and instructions,
  3. how to pay attention to what is going on around them,
  4. how to play nicely with others,
  5. how many drinks they should stop at so they don’t hurt themselves.
