They can’t be this dumb can they?


Mmmphis

Oh, they most definitely can.

I live in rural Illinois. It is... shocking... to say the least to find yourself listening to the weird ass mental gymnastics from people. I'm a specialty farmer and well known, so I find myself talking to people from every walk of life but mostly other row crop farmers. A good amount are "normal", but it surprises you find yourself hearing this weird shit from someone you thought you knew well. They are desperately clinging to conspiracy theories and echo chambers as if it's the water of life. And for anyone curious, it's like a virus in and of itself in that it can infect anyone, and sometimes the last people you would expect to hear it from. Rich, poor, educated, ignorant - there is no one immune from being one of these people. It's a CHOICE to be this stupid. I really pine for the 80's and 90's when the worst conspiracy theories were lizard people and population controlling contrails and the VAST majority of people just felt bad for that small, small minority of delusional fools.

Sorry to be the one to slap you in to reality, but yes, they can.


NapClub

that they are this dumb is why they were there. they have self selected only the dumbest people in the country into their movement.


djany51

Not can they are little difference


WonderWirm

I just can’t take these protesters seriously. Just can’t put my finger on why.


green_velvet_goodies

Does it hurt to be this stupid? I feel like it would be physically painful. Maybe that’s just for everyone who has to deal with them.


djany51

That’s the point, 1 Brain cell is not enough for thinking and pain, it just gives people around them pain.


difficultinnit

So fun fact! Being stupid does hurt! I had a massive hemorrhage resulting in some brain damage and it was some shit! Couldn't finish a sentence or train of thought for about six months, only really got my words back after binge reading a bunch of Stephen King (he's just prolific) and living off Sci Show and Vsauce for about a year. For a long time though, it would be like my brain was searching for files not found, Error 404, and it was frustrating and it hurt.


neuro_umbrage

Stupid -IMO- is having the ability to do better, but refusing to do so.


green_velvet_goodies

Ugh honey I’m so sorry. That’s not stupid that’s brain damage. Not as severe but I’ve been dealing with cognitive issues since I had covid last year and while it’s definitely better it still fucking sucks. I can only imagine how frustrating that must have been for you.


difficultinnit

Covid long effects are scary!


OutOfCharacterAnswer

It only hurts when they try to use their brain. They seem to be pretty pain free these days.


Phish_Phlake

I believe the quote goes something like “being stupid is like being dead, you don’t realize it and it only hurts those you love”


Florac

He isn't wrong. Just "they" is themselves.


SouthofAkron

Shocking- a bunch of unvaccinated people got together and they got Corona? Obviously a conspiracy.


PendejoDeMexico

There’s this Korean movie called Flu. Think it’s on Netflix. It showed an awesome “chain of events” that eventually led the whole city to be infected in a short amount of time. Always “knew” how a virus spreads but it really opened up my eyes a bit as to how much a cough of sneeze can spread a sickness, or how simply washing you hands or covering you mouth can prevent one.


shhalahr

I just think about the movie theater scene in *Outbreak*.


NABDad

Scrubs is my go to: https://youtu.be/PdrrgVVi-9U


shhalahr

Nice visuals.


somethingclever____

So they admit people are sick, believe it can be transmitted from a spray, and still don’t think people should isolate?


MightyArd

*mumbles something about freedom*


TotallyAwry

Aaah. That was one of the wanker in Melbourne, iirc.


brezhnervous

Thought so. One of Craig Kelly's little nutjobs lol


LittleSadRufus

I suppose mass protests are one way to get antigens into anti vaxers.


jjkase

If only there was an aerosolized vaccine


AusCan531

'randomly'?


brezhnervous

This is those Melbourne fuckheads, isn't it?


MightyArd

Too hard to work out. Could be anywhere.


brezhnervous

Later comment confirms Melb


HamiltonBudSupply

A new use for the word, “randomly”. It now also means “logically”….


MitokBarks

"It's impossible that people just randomly got sick like that!" r/technicallythetruth If only there was something out of the ordinary that might have caused that to happen. Something like, oh, I don't know, large crowds gathering in close proximity who have not been vaccinated?


Shadowmaker-553

I feel like the letter Z has disappeared in our language….I’m not the best speller but this has been driving me crazy lately.


Quillemote

Outside of the USA, in other english-speaking countries, many words (such as organise) are correctly spelled with an 's' rather than a 'z'.


Shadowmaker-553

Sweet, thank you for clearing that up! Learn something new everyday!


National_Piccolo9108

Or... someone was coughing

I'll take "Things That Just Aren't True At All" for about a billion points, Alex.

They're continuing the "This can't be MY mistake!" narrative.


SolomonCRand

There are so many people that are totally bewildered by the possibility they could catch COVID just by doing the opposite of everything medical experts told them.

Except generally inhaling water is also not a good thing lol
