The stupidity pandemic -

Recommended Posts

If you look at a historic graph of human population growth, you'll discover a fairly low rise up until the advent of Jenner's discovery of the smallpox vaccine, which brought on an age of medical advances throughout the Victorian era up to the polio vaccine and anti-biotics at the end of WW2, with a huge spike in population growth.  From time to time the bugs fought back,  giving us the 1918 Flu pandemic, which killed more people than both world wars combined.  Then some idiot suggested a link between the MMR jab and autism,  and an anti-needle cult was born.  So now, we have old diseases making a come back, like the measles outbreak in the US.  Seems the real pandemic is stupidity ?

The current Darwin awards are reserved for snowflakes falling off cliffs while taking a selfie;  but no doubt they could have more categories !    😉

There's two people there who have put themselves forward at various times as potential Prime Minister of  the UK, hanging onto the ill educated words of a 16 year old girl from Sweden as if it were Holy Writ. Stupid is too mild a word, try moronic.

Agree Asp; and apparently so does Corbyn's brother (a climate scientist himself);  who's dismissed this girl as a brainwashed charlatan, who's allegedly autistic !    Just shows how gullible our present flock of MPs are.

Corbyn's brother is not a climate scientist rather he is an alternative weather forecaster using sunspot and magnetic field measurement to produce long-term forecasts. I have no idea if they are any good!. Greta has Asperger's and by all accounts is difficult to control. Hence we have politicians fawning over a girl who needs care to protect her from the way that the climate change lobbiests are trying to use her, the politicians should be ashamed but know they will shortly never hear of the poor girl again. Sad.

We just had panic in the streets, it rained almost every day this Spring in SE Texas, or so it seemed.  Every climate change nutcase in the US headed south to worship the proof of global warming (or whatever).  Then they announced that we had had 18" less rainfall over the period than had ever been recorded.  They all climbed into their cars and left.  Good, we have enough home grown idiots without imports.

Watching Gunfight at OK Corral.  Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas seem an awful lot more charismatic than Gwyneth Paltrow !

Think we've all been brought up on the notion of economic growth and an ever increasing standard of living;  alas, we are consuming and displacing Earth's natural bounty and I'm not so sure the tree huggers will relish the consequences to their standards of living of reversing the process.

The worst generation of humans to ever inhabit earth,  good riddance I say.   Let us hope the young people can put right all the shortsighted and selfish destruction caused by the arrogance of their previous generation.

According to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the cost of our green targets up to 2050 will reach £1 trillion  - I wonder who's going to be paying it ?      😉

The green stupidity is never ending. All the while our politicians are promising to reduce our emissions of a harmless gas to zero and meanwhile the rest of the world (apart from the USA) are increasing theirs. And of course the people who will be paying it will be the taxpayers.

Who will be paying back the trillions of debt your generation have built up?

Scientists have just discovered a volcano in Kamchatka, previously thought to be dormant  -  taken with all the other volcano around the globe -  wonder if they'll conform to emission targets if they kick off ?!  😉

What bothers me about Gove isn’t that he was doing coke but that as Education Secretary he made it a blacklisting offense for any teacher caught doing class a drugs.  What a hypocrite, what a typical Tory.
