In re: stupid people:

1) just got this question on one of my bodymod forums:

Quote:
Hey, not sure if someone asked before but I'm not sure which size is the biggest 1/4", 1/2", 5/16", 3/8" 7/16"??
I mean, come on--did she not graduate from fourth grade? I know fractions can be confusing, but surely she knows how to use a ruler? (ETA: she's a 24-yo college student)

***
2) At the grocery store, the person ahead of me was being all know-it-all and tried to tell the checker (a 30-something woman) a bit of food history, saying that the Chinese invented catsup. After he left, I said, they may have had a word for a sauce that sounded like our word, "catsup," but it sure wasn't any tomato sauce, since tomatoes are a New World food. Her response? What's the New World? I'm like, the Americas, you know -- Columbus sailed the ocean blue? Blank stare.

I'm telling you, I probably haven't needed to hear that since Ilanded in the US 9 years ago. But I am fucking pissed off with a whole shitload of stuff right now.

I used to play it when i was a teenager and my dad was being more of an asshole than usual.

Its possible when there is no alternative. I would say we have an outhouse too but that would be stretching it!

we had a nasty multi car accident here; killing several young people who were friends; leaving the driver alive. The news channels have been all over their facebook and myspace pages, noting the driver said "I hate being sober" and saying there were drug references and incriminating photos.

--one, I just hate to think of people trolling the deceased kids' pages for shit like this; and
--two; how dumb are people? perils of ze interwebs, people
maybe I should have put this in the "upsetting" thread
