    With teh stoopid is just not to look.  Seriously.  Stick with the pooties, you'll get fewer ulcers.

      I kind of think the best way to deal with this sort of rampant stupidity is to point and laugh, loudly and somewhere those who are promulgating it might see that they're being ridiculed.

      At the very least, this is comedy gold. Has anyone told Jon Stewart about this stuff?

      Sometimes I check things out just to laugh, like the clone thing. That had me laughing so hard one night I had to be careful to not wake my family.

      Other times I see a link and I know that the story is going to make my brain hurt but I click it anyway because I want to know just how stupid the stupid can be; and, well, I run into things like those listed in the above diary.

      It's like I see a train wreck and I can't look away. I have to know just how bad it is, kinda like when you watch certain movies. You know it's awful yet for some reason you can't stop watching. Alien from L.A. for example (yes I saw it on cable pre-MST-3K when I was younger. it was awful then and the bots barely saved it), or like watching Bloodbath at the House of Death (real movie. only seen it once. it was awful and not even a bit part by Vincent Price could save it)

      Anyway I got off on a tangent there. That's the pattern. I see link. I think to myself "self that really can't be as stupid as that looks right?" and I click the link.....and it's even more stupid than it looked. Sometimes in a funny way, other times in a way that makes my brain hurt.
