StOOpid People post #1  quote:



AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership". He received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.

Police in Oakland, California spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them, shouting please to come out and give himself up.

An Illinois man pretending to have a gun kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines. The kidnapper then proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.

A 9-year-old boy in Manassas, Virginia received a one-day suspension under his elementary school's drug policy last week - for Certs! Joey Hoeffer allegedly told a classmate that the mints would make him "jump higher."

A student in Belle, West Virginia was suspended for three days for giving a classmate a cough drop. School principal Forest Mann reiterated the school's "zero-tolerance" policy...not to be confused with the "zero-intelligence" policy.

Fire investigators on Maui have determined the cause of a blaze that destroyed a $127,000 home last month - a short in the homeowner's newly installed fire prevention alarm system. "This is even worse than last year," said the distraught homeowner, "when someone broke in and stole my new security system..."

A man walked in to a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Shop, and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

In Ohio, an unidentified man in his late twenties walked into a police station with a 9-inch wire protruding from his forehead and calmly asked officers to give him an X-ray to help him find his brain, which he claimed had been stolen. Police were shocked to learn that the man had drilled a 6-inch deep hole in his skull with a Black & Decker power drill and had stuck the wire in to try and find the missing brain.

In Medford, Oregon, a 27-year-old jobless man with an MBA blamed his college degree for his murder of three people. "There are too many business grads out there," he said. "If I had chosen another field, all this may not have happened."

Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words, "Give me all your money or I'll shoot," the man shouted, "That's not what I said!"

A bank robber in Virginia Beach got a nasty surprise when a dye pack designed to mark stolen money exploded in his Fruit-of-theLooms. The robber apparently stuffed the loot down the front of his pants as he was running out the door. "He was seen hopping and jumping around," said police spokesman Mike Carey, "with an explosion taking place inside his pants." Police have the man's charred trousers in custody.

A man spoke frantically into the phone, "My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart!" "Is this her first child?" the doctor asked. "No, you idiot!" the man shouted. "This is her husband!"

In Modesto, CA, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun, but unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket.

How odd, those suspensions...

They have found marijuana twice, a knife on a 3rd grader, a razor blade on a 2nd grader (who brought it, by the way, to "slice up" another girl's face), hustler magazines, real pornographic photos (from a 35 mm camera), and cards from an adult sex game at the elementary school where I teach... all in the last 2 weeks, and noone has been suspended for any of this. Where is the justice???

There was a story released here today about 5 year olds being photographed in Darwin with joints hanging out of their mouths. NOT EVEN IN SCHOOL YET. Shocking.

Will try and find something and post in Culture and Society.

We had one run away today because the mother came in and went ballistic on the principal because her child beat up another child and was reprimanded !. We had to call the cops.

Oh, BTW, we were told we were not allowed to write anymore referals this year. We are to "deal with" whatever else may come up on our own!!!

Billy Connoly on Stupid People post #13  quote:

Billy Connolly on "Things I hate about everybody...."

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time....I know where my watch is pal, where the **** is yours? Do I point at my trousers fly when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their arse to search the entire room for the TV remote because they refuse to walk to the TV and change the channel manually.

3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". ****ing right! What good is a cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the f*ck would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people really do this? Who and where are they?

5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?" No, you dick-head, I paid 15 dollars to come to the movies to stare at the ****ing floor.

6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?" Didn't really give me a choice there, did you sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved!' Which is it? If it?s new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it.

8. When people say "life is short". What the f*ck?? Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever ****ing does!! What can you do that's longer?

9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks, "Has the bus come yet?" If the bus came would I be standing here, Knob head?

10. People who say things like 'My eyes aren't what they used to be'. So what did they used to be? Ears, Wellington boots?

11. When you're eating something and someone asks 'Is that nice?' No it's really revolting - I always eat stuff I hate.

12. People who announce they are going to the toilet. Thanks that's an image I really didn't need.

13. McDonalds staff who pretend they don't understand you unless you insert the 'Mc' before the item you are ordering.....It's has to be a McChicken Burger, just a Chicken
Burger get blank looks...........Well I'll have a McStraw and jam it up your McArse you Mc****ing McDickhead.

14. When you involved in an accident and someone asks "are you alright?"... "Yes, I'm fine thanks; I'll just pick up my limbs and be off then"

heh, I have this really weird compulsion where I have finish eating something if I started it, even if it's gross. So unless it's really really really really gross, at any given moment, I may be eating something that tastes bad.

Indians are that way in many ways too, except that you are supposed to compliment the cook. Indians also usually ask repeatedly if you want more even if you say no the first time.

The average HOUSEHOLD income of the town is less than $10,000 or so. Population 830 (Many of which are children), 7% white, 92% black, 1% other, 37 % of the population have high school degrees, but only 6% have some sort of a college degree and 44% never finished high school. I don't know typical occupation, but I know in my class, quite a few work at fast food restaurants, several are in manual labor (farmers, construction workers, etc), one is a maid, several are secretaries...

Please note, I AM NOT knocking any of these occupations, any races, or people who are in poverty. I am just stating the facts and answering the question I was asked...

I don't live in this town, I live in Columbia, the capital city. I just WORK in this town. The number of people in this town are equivalent to the number of people in my graduating CLASS in high school, I believe!
There are no stop lights, no grocery stores, one gas station, a school, a restaurant (that serves mainly fried fish), etc... We are talking RURAL South Carolina people!
I have only lived in SC for 3 yrs. and I have am still amazed/surprized daily about something else I see/hear.

I won't say you are knocking anyone, be sure.
Anyway, with all my respect to those people, education isn't a value for them.
While the morals may be better then those of wealthy people.
I beleive teaching such kids is rather dull: they take very few from you.
At the contrary, middle-class parents push their children to learn and weed aren't smoked at schools where such children constitute the majority.

In high school I had a good friend who was Indian. He explained to me that I should finish any food that I start, so everytime he offered me something I had to ask like 100,000 questions about it before I would try something. Didn't want to be rude... since I do find it hard to finish food I don't like. Though I found most of his food was delicious

I don't remember him offering food a lot

Yes G, most of us do like to finish our food (even though there are some people who don't). Food is considered sacred, because it is the source of your energy. Same for water.

He might not have offered food a lot because it is mostly an womanly trait, and that also an old school womanly trait. The reason it is so prevelant is that most of the cooking in the household is done by women and most of them like to make sure that everyone is well fed.
