    There ain't no words for that kind of stupidity.
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.

    I think Will Rogers and Mark Twain pretty much covered the situation.

    There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves. [Will Rogers]

    ...the person that had took a bull by the tail once had learnt sixty or seventy times as much as a person that hadn't, and said a person that started in to carry a cat home by the tail was getting knowledge that was always going to be useful to him, and warn't ever going to grow dim or doubtful.

    Political correctness is a liberal degrading of the freedom of speech. George Orwell's 1984 famously incorporated the notion of limiting thought through language (see Newspeak)." Meanwhile, the beatings will continue until morale improves around here.

    Back when we 'old folks' were young there weren't warning labels on everything. We tended to learn quick.............those of us that survived, anyway.

    I've been dared to do way grosser things. We've definitely come a long way as a society from when my mother washed my mouth out with soap for swearing...

    Is it called the "Tide Pod Challenge" because it was invented in Alabama?

    Let's see, A tide is something affecting the ocean, and a pod is a group of dolphins.... sound more like something a fish/marine biologist would come up with

    If you have to do something retarded like this to impress your equally retarded friends, then you need to choose better friends, assuming the smarter kids will allow you anywhere near them!
