I took this photo in August, it looks very green compared to now. Beyond those trees is the technology college for kids aged 11 to 16 years old. Along the side of the lake is a road where people often drive quite fast. Then at the end a double roundabout, followed by a really stupid road narrowing. The roads are quite wide but the stupid people make them narrow to slow traffic past the technology college because these kids are too stupid to know how to cross the road.
It can be quite hard for them to cross the road because in places the traffic goes that slow it’s one continuous convoy. Then the stupid people want traffic lights to stop the traffic all together. The traffic has been forced off some roads altogether by stupid ‘traffic calming’ measures. In places the pavement just juts out into the road and it’s hard to see in the rain or fog; it could cause an accident couldn’t it? While you’re watching out for all the stupid stuff, you could even run one of the stupid kids over!
On one traffic roundabout there are traffic lights everywhere and the kerbs juts out on a couple of the exits. When you come through one set of traffic lights, you are going west and the sun sets in the west; no chance of seeing the traffic light clearly. I wonder sometimes if the stupid people are even human or are they from another planet? Planet Stupid perhaps?
You must have met stupid people, they’re bloody everywhere. They complicate the simple to make themselves look clever. You mainly find them in national and local government. We have a lot of lawyers in the UK who like to complicate things and they are really stupid!
Many politicians are stupid, lawyers write new laws and politicians do what their party whips tell them to do and we get another stupid law or another stupid tax. The stupid people are also very greedy. They wear stupid clothes too, have you noticed? They walk around half naked when it’s bloody freezing! Stupid women wear thongs, or so I’m told; they don’t actually show me, usually. You do get some wearing very thin leggings, at least that’s what I think they are and they leave little to the imagination.
We even have stupid buildings here. We have one with shocking pink windows and they say it’s iconic. It’s bloody stupid, it cost a bloody fortune too! They have built a new college with a wave shaped roof, probably to replace the one that was near my lake that they destroyed. I bet that stupid roof leaks!
I get annoyed because the stupid people seem to earn more than the rest of us mere humans. The CEO of my local council spent £5,000 plus having a blog set up; he can run a multi million pound organisation but he’s too stupid to set up his own blog! Yeah right! It’s not even a public blog or I might have read it and known the garbage was being collected today. He wouldn’t tell me anything useful though, they all speak gobbledegook. That is to complicate things. Printing money is quantitative easing, defaulting on a loan is giving it a ‘hair cut’, people who buy equities are bulls, the sellers are bears, there are hawks on the MPC not to be confused with doves. These stupid people don’t want you to understand what they are on about; they want it complicated. They want their complicated little niche, that only they understand and no one else. When it comes to anything outside that niche like setting up a blog or changing a flat tyre; they call on someone else.
There are more amazing blogs on the Home Page. Now, what is your great example of stupid? Comment below…
Mike, we only have stupid people because there is no legislation for common sense……
I wonder how on earth we managed to get to our age just by using it?

I think in my case I got to this age more by luck than anything else! I did at least learn along the way, some people don’t even seem to try. I think legislation should be in plain English too, it never will be though.

I think that sometimes people need a physical barrier to change their way of doing things.In that case the roundabout doesn’t seem enough then it may be useful to have also some speed cushion.Speed cushion forces driver to slow down.If you wanna have more informations about speed cushion read this article:http://www.sinoconcept.com/2012/01/06/kinds-traffic-calming-solutions/

Speed cushions appear to be a better idea, they would not effect emergency vehicles so much and not damage cars. Maybe the boy racers would still speed over them but I’m sure there would be a psychological effect that would slow most speeding drivers down; especially if they had bright markings.
Thanks for the comment.
There is always a better way if we just look for the answer…
