Sometimes you have to wonder about the intelligence of some people. In the news recently, a man in Zimbabwe stole a bus to go pick up his driving license. He admitted this in court. You would think that at some point while devising this plan that common sense would kick in and say, “This might not be a good idea.”
Here in the U.S., a guy in Texas called a guy in the Navy a nerd over the Internet, so the Navy guy looked up his name and drove to Texas to get him. He took pictures of himself at every state border from Virginia to Texas and posted them online, to show how serious he was. When he got there, he burned down the man’s trailer. He drove 1300 miles to do this, over being called a “nerd”. Granted, there was some more teasing done online, but the “nerd” comment was what pushed him over the edge. This guy is 27 years old, yet he still did something so stupid. (Can you say “insecure” and “emotionally unstable”?)
As part of a radio contest, an Ohio State man stripped down to his underwear and jumped in a pool of manure. The prize? Free Ohio State football tickets. I realize everyone likes winning contests and prizes, but in this case I think it would’ve been better to just buy the tickets.
Can you believe it?
