Stupidity and Humankind

leave a comment »

Is it a choice or an inevitability? Being a living being in the world, I obviously have come across some of these people. They’re the ones who sit in line at a coffee store and go “I want a drink that was kinda like coffee but it was kinda icy and caramelly”…you’ve experienced it. We all have. But why are these people out there. Do they choose to be this way or is it something that they can’t help. Now, I’m not talking about people who are mentally handicapped or differently abled. I’m talking about the ones who seem to have no sense in their heads…which makes me wonder how they don’t just float away.

Now, don’t get me wrong. There are times when everyone is stupid…it’s a fact of being human. I have moments of blondeness as it were (I’m a blonde. I can say that). However, I don’t live my life having fewer moments of clarity/intelligence than these not so bright moments. Seriously, I know that it’s said that ignorance is bliss, but there is a point at which the whole ignorance excuse wears thin and it’s just a matter of being dumb.

Think about the last time you were trying to have an intelligent conversation with someone…it’s a beautiful thing when this happens because it makes both parties feel like they have something to contribute. However, think of the last time that you had an intelligent conversation with a person of lower than average intelligence…during that conversation, did you feel like you were banging your head into a wall…this person is the type of person that I’m talking about…

Honestly, I understand that there are levels of “smarts” as it were. Yet, why does it seem like some people have these smarts in spades when others have no clue what a spade is, let alone why they have them. I simply think that everyone should be a little more aware of everyone else…then, maybe the world would be a better place?
