Above Average Stupidity

Seeing this encircled definition of stupidity reminds me of a time when we used it as a definition for insanity. I think stupidity works better.. sadly I can relate to the word in an intimate way.. we can probably all relate to the word in some way or another. I think these quotes speak to the extent and impact of the word:

The only way to comprehend what mathematicians mean by infinity is to contemplate the extent of human stupidity. -Voltaire

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. -Albert Einstein

The two most abundant things in the universe are Hydrogren and stupidity. -Harlan Ellison

In view of the fact that God limited the intelligence of man, it seems unfair that He did not also limit his stupidity. -Konrad Adenauer

Stupidity is an elemental force for which no earthquake is a match. -Karl Kraus

There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life. -Frank Zappa

Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider! -George Carlin
