I don’t like to make plans for my day, because then “Premeditated” gets tossed around in the court room.

Those who say that there is “No such thing as a stupid question” have never worked in the IT Department.

I am really sorry that I hurt your feelings when I called you stupid in public.
I didn’t know it was a secret.

I really have to stop saying “How stupid can you be?”
Too many people are taking that as a challenge.

I’m not saying that we need to kill all the stupid people. Rather let’s just remove all the warning labels and it will sort itself out…

Killing all the stupid people would result in large areas of the continents with only animals roaming around as human history clearly demonstrates how intelligent humans are. It's possible that our best hope of finding intelligent life would be for us to go to them for if they read our history they might run to the other end of the galaxy

Great stuff, Bill!

Here's my favorite George Carlin quote to contribute to theme of your list.

"Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that".

Cheers

I saw a bumper sticker, many years ago, that said "Stupidity should be painful". So true.

Yeah, I have people apologize for problems on their PC and stuff, and I always tell them that it's not a problem - if they didn't have the issues then I'd be out of a job smile

I agree but now that I am retired I just get calls from friends and neighbors who don't pay me. wink

Do you also have a large pickup truck? If your friends and neighbors call you to help them move stuff then you have the dreaded double-whammy! IT and logistical support!

Nope. Four of my neighbors do, so I don't need one. smile
