I know you can’t fix Stupid, but wouldn’t it be nice if you could?

It would be nice.

I’d settle for a tattoo on their foreheads, though.

There is, they are called condoms.

The downside would be much lower attendance at county fairs, layoffs at the local social service departments and as a plus, much less crowding at Walmarts.

Depends on what you’re definition of “stupid” is. According to some, “stupid” = “not in agreement with me”.

@Hawkeye Welcome to fluther. Loved your TV show.

HA! No. We need stupidity to balance the world out. Too many good things might cause the world to combust. Actually, I like to believe people can overcome their stupidity. It may sound naive, but a little naivety can be a positive thing.

No, Congress should make it a Law…. oh, but there would be no Congressmen left!

@Hawkeye LOL touche!

If there no stupid people, how would we know when someone was bright?

Oh, that sounds stupid.

But it provides so much comedy and laughter!

It would be so boring without stupid people… we’d have nothing to talk about, otherwise.

nellybar's avatar

@troubleinharlem exactly my point ;-)

DominicX~ my definition of stupid is not someone who disagrees with me but someone who does not have any common sense. If a person disagrees that means they have enough sense to use their brain to form their own opinion.

Your answer made me laugh BoBo1946~

Oh! I would send a few in-laws in for a shot ASAP :)

Eh, it would be convienient, but sometimes I like having stupid people doing stupid things for laughs, or having them around so I don’t have to put too much effort in pulling pranks when I’m feeling lazy.

The solution is to be proactive in fostering literacy, intelligence and good sense. I am not convinced current social and educational policies come close to achieving this goal.

Yes, I know a few people that need that shot.
