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


Recommended Posts

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!

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 pe

Will these wheels spin both ways @C8RKH

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.

YES

Or was it a rhetorical question? 😛

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

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....

Oh god, if only you saw what I see sometimes. There is absolutely no doubt that the rise of stupidity is rife. 

Sadly, this is fueled by ourselves and society. For the last few generations we have steadily become more "Empowering" we have given people the rights and protection to make idiotic mistakes whilst creating a society that can't seem to make a decision without someone in a position of trust having to tell them what to do. This direct contradiction has lead to many "Stupid" reactions and decisions.

So! For example! We demand Politicians be more human, more "Normal", why can't they tell the truth? Then when one makes a small human mistake like having an affair or saying the truth on social media that they thought all lives matter they are crucified and forced to resign. 

Another example: We empower kids and tell them that no one can force them to do something and that no one can discipline them and then wonder why the youth of today seem to have little respect for their peers and elders and yet demand respect before they have earnt it, even to Authority figures like the Police. Knowing they won't be dealt with robustly. THEN when they hit 18 and the first time the weight of the law comes down on them, they are shocked and don't understand and their lives are ruined with a Criminal record. 

I feel there are loads of examples like this. The Police getting calls for the slightest thing "My husband called me a Bitch", "My Girlfriend punched me on the arm", "There's someone shooting in the next field to our house (yes its the farmer and you knew that but the bangs are upsetting your BBQ), I can't control my child because they are so empowered I can't discipline them so you come and do it! .............. Then........ "Where are the Police? Why aren't they out and more visible? When I called 999 it took Police ages for Police to get to me. Where are they when you need them?

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.
