Shocking Example of Stupidity

If you like to see dumb people doing dumb things, you can simply flip on "reality TV." But if you really want to see just how stupid people can get, read the news. Like this story: Kyle Dubois, a high school student in Dover, New Hampshire, decided to have a little fun in his electrical trades class by clamping an electrical demonstration cord to his nipples and plugging it in. Needless to say, the stunt left him critically injured.

Keep in mind that this was an electrical trades class. One would think that a student taking such a class, even in a public school, would have some vague idea of what electricity can do.

But that isn't even the stupid part. How do you think Dubois and his parents responded to this shocking experience? They sued his teacher, the school district, and the city of Dover.

Emeril Was Right: Pork Fat Rules!

Could bacon grease be the fountain of youth? CNN wanted to know. One commenter, "okbob," writes:
    My grandfather ate pork at every meal starting with bacon in the morning and fried in lard pork chops all his life. It finally killed him at the age of 92. My wife and I are close to 70, in good health and love our meat. I'm not knocking the veggies because we eat lots of greens but meat has been getting a bad rap ever since Disney started cartooning.
"Anecdotal? Sure," the article concludes. "But until Dr. Sanjay Gupta tells us otherwise, we're chugging bacon fat smoothies for breakfast, lunch, dinner and every last snack attack."

Real or Fake?

I'll bet you can't tell which government spending programs are real and which are fake...

Just a little reminder that the government exists to waste your money.
