If you had a million dollars to reduce stupidity where you live, how would you spend it?
I certainly would not spend the money on education, as some others stated. Stupidity has nothing to do with learning. I know a lot of people who are well-educated, but they’re really stupid. Look at all the politicians who seem to have it all, and then throw it away to have sex, or an affair with some woman. How stupid can someone be? Do they think they won’t get caught? Probably not. That’s how stupid they are. And it has nothing to do with intelligence, because most of these people are intelligent, but they’re stupid. Real stupid.
I would spend the million dollars on things I need; a car, nice clothes, nice place to live, traveling. I certainly would not spend it trying to teach people not to be stupid. It’s a waste of time. You know what Forrest Gump said: “Stupid is as stupid does”. I’d be stupid to use it for the purpose of trying to cure stupidity. That stupid I’m not!
