STUPIDITY

This documentary about stupidity tells us the history of the word “moron”, the difference between stupid, moron, smart, intelligent, genius and questions the regular practice of classifying peoples intelligence through standardized IQ tests. Of course also Mr. Bush is examined in this report. A well educated guy who, nevertheless, acts in a completely dumb way — or at least wants us to believe so.
Albert Einstein said:
“Only two things are infinite the universe and stupidity … and I am not sure about the former.”

This Shit Must Stop!!

Oh Boy … I can certainly relate to this, having watched the endless cycle of insanity and stupidity which repeats the same old bullshit, justifications, and excuses, decade after decade, after decade, after decade, after decade.
We have more than enough for everyone’s needs, but never enough for the elitist greed which dominates our tortured wee planet

The Blackpool Comedy Carpet

http://www.comedycarpet.com/map/

A large granite carpet which displays the names and catchphrases of 1000 UK comedians was unveiled this week, in Blackpool, and much to my surprise and pleasure, my name is featured
I’ve never been interested in any award ceremonies, prizes, or competitions throughout my years as a stand-up comedian or performer, but this wee inclusion on an art installation does give me a rather nice glow of satisfaction, as it has a certain aura of working-class credibility, for me at least
I’ve always had a huge respect for my precursors in the world of comedy, and have read and studied the history of UK stand-up comedy, and written on the subject too, in the Scottish Encyclopedia of Cuture, and on BBC Radio Scotland
Being included amongst some of the greatest stand-ups of the past and present is a pure honour, and I’m well chuffed
Unfortunately, I’m now gonna have to try and visit Blackpool to see the bloody thing!!
