Are people just ****ing stupid these days?

Post on VX220 Faceslap group:

"Anyone interested in a set of Oz Superturismo 17" with a picture of the wheels.

First question asked "what size are they?"

Arggghhhhh, why are people such utter brainless, moronic, muppets?

See it all the time on the internet, people either just so ****ing stupid, dopey or just plain lazy. How do these people hold down jobs and exist without round the clock professional help?

 

Rant over.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

In answer to the OP, yes, sometimes.

Also, anyone seeking advice would do well to state the model/year first. Facebook groups are notoriously bad for this, as well as some of the ill-informed, sometimes laughable responses, which can be misleading.

Not knowing the car and the wheels (which the person asking hopefully has more knowledge) but are the different widths of that model of wheel? For example if rears are wider than fronts perhaps the person wanted to ensure it's 2x rear width and 2x front not 4x front.

 

That aside, if you give people the benefit of the doubt and assume they're not stupid, you set yourself up to be incorrect a lot of the time.

People just don't read the content of adverts. Lost count of the number of times I have copied and pasted parts of adverts in response to questions.

One example was selling a brand new set of tyres off a spare set of alloys used for winter tyres on my daily.

Advert "THE WHEELS ARE NOT INCLUDED. The tyres are brand new and for sale because I am fitting winter tyres to the alloys"

Question - Are the wheels included?

fcukwit is, I think your preferred phrase Andy.

Lazy rather than stupid. It seems to be easy to ask a question than try to work out the answer. I blame facebook.

If I was a less tolerant person I'd say i think we need a cull of all the stupid people. Given it would seem the vast majority of people on Facebook are fcukwits (thankyou Colin :) ) that would be a c.2.7bn cull. Would certainly help the environment and allow us to then grow enough food so nobody would go hungry and everyone would have clean water and shelter, with the added bonus of the elimination of all fcukwits!

Yes, I know, a bit extreme, and obviously I'm just joking but really, some of these people who ask these ridiculous questions are so stupid, are so thick or lazy, that I do wonder how they get out of the bed in the morning, wash and dress themselves, feed themselves and then actually remember where it is they need to go for work. Oh got it, I bet a good percentage of them ask the dumb question on faceslap "where do i work again" and hope to get the right response.

 

Any other good examples of fcukwittery you see on Faceslap?

Was in Hobbycraft today and a father and young son playing hide and seek in the aisles using face masks off the shelf to go boo to people and then put the masks back on the shelf. Shop assistant said nothing

Can we include BBC and C4 Journalists?

Out for a Blat or on the Allotment

Oh yes!

Although these days we cannot call them journalists as that would give them far too much intelligence credit.

Think of them as national social media influencers at best, moronic script readers at worst. Just watch BBC breakfast. As soon as they deviate from the script they literally trip over their tongues and you can see their brains struggling to control their mouths. Nagga is especially hilarious when she goes off on one during a tory interview....

And have more rights than the majority it would seem.

However, in a wider context in the UK, and most other countries, the minority (usually the rich) have always ruled the majority.
