|The essential stupidity

Observations I have made in the last five years have made me realize the stupidity necessary in everything. Useless stupidity must be a staple of everyone's life, no matter how much of an "intellectual" they see themselves as. I do not think it is possible for a human being (especially Americans, we even take pride in this) to be intelligent in all aspects of their life, for most of the time. For those of us who saw the spectrum series speaker (who was long and boring, but semi-informative), see the stupidity in this new genre of reality TV. I would like to say that I do not watch reality TV shows, but I am ashamed to say that I have stuck around a TV that "happened" to have one of those PoS shows on. I did watch the simple life whenever man-who-likes-crappy-music had it on (By the way, Paris Hilton is hot, but not THAT hot. She probably would be more attractive to me if I had only seen her pictures). And the J-dizzle dawg recently sucked me into watching some crap ass MTV reality show, something about rooms.... Anyways.
More examples of essential stupidity result from the constant bickering of girls (yeah i said it, what you gonna do?), or the need for guys to have some kind of hard physical contact with another (we recently experimented with hall rugby, but decided that soccer was more feasible), or drinking/intoxicating oneself. Why is this necessary? Because, as a general rule, on the most basic level people are very, VERY stupid. Flashes of brilliance occur. I'm sure Einstein did things that were purely moronic. I mean, I even witnessed some awe-inspiring genius (whose name starts with a J and ends with an Ared) on the bottom of a dog-pile (featuring the fatass who listens to crappy music).
Could you think of a world where no one did ANYTHING stupid? Seems pretty boring to me. Maybe that's why Canada sucks. I doubt it, nothing good comes from there. The name, Ca Nada, means NOTHING. (Which brings me to a quote from my Psychology teacher about inbreeding, "If you mate with your brother or close relative, you'll have a Canadian for a child.")
Another thing is, we (any self-titled "intellectual") would not seem very smart without extremely stupid people in the world. I hate to say it, but YOUR intelligence is determined by the person sitting next to you. Either you are smarter or more of a dumb-ass than the guy next door.
I guess the epiphany I have led myself to this evening is that people are stupid, and my bitching about stupid people won't do anything. So what i've decided to do is change my attitude towards them. Instead of wondering why they are so unbelievably moronic, i will just look down my nose at them, and maybe even pretend they aren't there. That might be a little to extreme, and quite a bit too pompous, so instead I will just ignore stupidity. Unless of course it starts affecting me. In which case, I will either counter with my own moronic way or try to be intelligent. No. Never mind the latter. Stupidity it is.
