Op left off "theologins"

by Louvernreply 1305/08/2013

R2, The Voice of the Night, is correct. House Republicans today are a monument to dumbfuckery of the very worst kind.

That being said, OP, what the hell is up with your list? Are you unaware that there are intelligent and stupid people in pretty much every occupation?

I spent a lot of time at both Harvard and MIT. In theory, the people I met there are among the most intelligent in the country. In reality, many of them weren't any smarter than the people who waited on me at local fast-food joints, fixed my car, policed my neighborhood or turned tricks downtown.

Grow up, OP.

This. Acting attract people who are good looking and like attention. Those things have little to do with intelligence.

I'm with R17, I have had to deal with a few in the past couple months and they are quite possibly the stupidest people ever.

Military. There are abundant stories of recruiters leaving the room to encourage cheating, so that everyone could pass the enlistment exam.

Does anyone remember the 60 Minutes episode on the lack of intelligence in the military? The DI was giving instructions on how to write a letter home. "Dear Mother and Father, or Dear Mother, or Dear Whatever. I am fine. I am at Fort Bragg. I am eating 3 square meals every day. . " Then he said, "now bow your heads and pray." Everyone then bowed their heads and prayed in unison.

But did they know that the word "dumb" means "mute", rather than "stupid", R28?

r30 Why?

Grocery Store's. Especially Kroger.

R32 But I'll bet they know how to use apostrophes.

by Louvernreply 3305/08/2013

Grocery Store's. Especially Kroger.


Oh brother.

by Louvernreply 3405/08/2013

R33, ironically, r32's comment is an example of a "grocer's apostrophe."

by Louvernreply 3505/08/2013

R31, probably some combination of rebellion to authority, gullibility, and god complex.

r37 proctologists have an advantage over most jobs. They deal with one asshole at a time.

ITA @ R22.

Cosmetology school is the fall back for students who are too dumb to go to college. They can't pass even the most basic academic courses.

by Louvernreply 4205/12/2013

r42, schools try to make their students feel good by calling their business a "Beauty College."

You forgot psychology. Really inept people, generally speaking.

by Louvernreply 4605/12/2013

Psychology attracts people who are crazy, rather than dumb.

And parenthood is what immensely stupid people do with their lives, if only because they want someone to take care of them.

by Louvernreply 4705/12/2013


I'm in the military and I think it's hilarious that my chosen profession is currently "winning." Disregard the fact that you have to pass a test to join the military, and many of the jobs are technical! If it helps you sleep at night to think that servicemembers are dumber than prostitutes or custodians, carry on.

by Louvernreply 4805/12/2013


by Louvernreply 4905/12/2013

R48, There are many intelligent and very skilled and competent men&women serving in the military, I agree. On the other hand, there are many at the lower levels that have been encouraged to cheat on their entrance tests. You should see some of the profiles from 60 Minutes. When you have top down decision making, those that are creative or innovative tend to leave. Same with government employees. (Where's their category?)

[quote]But did they know that the word "dumb" means "mute", rather than "stupid"?

You seem to feel the need to write this on every thread where the word "dumb" is used in this meaning. If you're really unaware that words can have more than one meaning, you're dumber (more stupid) than all the other posters on this thread. You are very dense indeed.

Republican politics.

by Louvernreply 5405/13/2013

r2 got it right.

Not a profession, but Republican presidential candidates are in a league all their own.

Human Resources. Truely bright people will always be in a part of the business that produces revenue.

OTOH- when you do find the unicorn that is the bright, innovative HR person - please treat them well.

by Louvernreply 5605/13/2013

[quote]You forgot psychology. Really inept people, generally speaking.

"Psychology" is a profession? Psychology graduates end up in any number of jobs and fields. You no doubt mean "psychotherapy," which, strictly speaking, is not a profession either.
