Just in case you can't find enough proof in the other areas of this site, I have put together this little list of tidbits to demonstrate the fact that, People are Morons.

Corporate Stupidity

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.

Government Stupidity

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 the man was standing beside them, shouting please to come out and give himself up.

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!

Just Plain STUPID

In Ohio, an unidentified man (and likely future Darwin Award recipient) 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 (it's much more likely that it never existed).  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 to find the missing brain.
