Now that’s Stupid!

Hello Everybody,
Bet you’ve had that moment before,
the (as I would name it)
“hit your head on the desk” moment.
The “ow gosh! How stupid”
moments in your life,
that are kinda hard to avoid.
And because I’m quite curious
what the definition of “stupidity” would be..
I asked Wikipedia yet again to come to.. this:
“Stupidity is the lack of intelligence, understanding, reason, wit, or sence.”
So.. brilliant, though now we still don’t know what the definitions
of “intelligence, understanding, reason, wit or sence” are.
And since “intelligence” sends me straight back to “understanding”
and are both too wide to wrap your mind around a good definition..
I’m giving up on those two. Leaves me with “reason”,
which is way too big to get a definition for that fits “stupidity”,
lets forget about that one too. So, “wit”:
 “Wit is a form of intellectual humour, and a wit is someone skilled
in making witty remarks. Forms of wit include the quip and repartee.”
So, a wit is a form of humour.. so if you are stupid..
you have a lack of a sort of humor. And over that last one, “sence”.
I bet you already knew that that was way to wide for a
definition that fitted our well-known “stupidity” too.
So we are back to zero yet again, with thanks to Wikipedia.
Though I mustn’t sound so negative about Wikipedia,
because it really can help a lot with.. stuff.
Back to “stupidity”, I found a better definition,
or description of “stupidity”, going like this:
“Stupidity is opinionated because some people
might see something that was
“stupid”(eg an idea) as creative,
while others just think it’s foolish or stupid.”
And… actually he is right. Stupidity isn’t going to fit into a real definition.
Not only because it is just too wide to fit into one,
but also because stupidity is different for every person.
Or comes over differently by different people.
And, indeed, some may think it is creative and some may think it’s stupid.
But you are just you… and I am just me.
Stupid or not, you’ll be you.
And no one can change that.

    I’m stupid 😀 or creative, depends on how you read it 🙂 and proud of it :3
    tho on the other hand, if someone concider someone else stupid… wont that just mean that they don’t get what they mean? which would mean THEY would be stupid?
    All cases have diffrent sides, it’s all about turning the box 🙂

      Nice to hear that you’re at least proud of it. Because that is what matters most.
      And yes… telling someone that he/she is stupid while not understanding what he/she means can be considered stupid indeed.
      Tho.. doesn’t have to. Like you said.. it’s all about turning the box :P.
      Greetz, MMasing.
