    Default Stupid Lasts Forever?

    "Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts forever." - Aristophanes

    Agree or disagree?

    There are no constants in life except for death, taxes and stupidity.

    That's a true statement, in my opinion. Like I keep repeating everywhere, the mind isn't there by magic, it is a biological computer.
    As such it has its limits, and stupidity is a result of having a low capacity.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    depends on what definition of stupid we are using, I suppose
    “The phrase 'Someone ought to do something' was not, by itself, a helpful one. People who used it never added the rider 'and that someone is me'.” - Terry Pratchett

    i've never met a human that hadn't done something stupid in their lives. and if stupid lasts forever does that mean we're all incurably stupid
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Agree; As long as there is someone in reference that learns faster and yet as accurate and can apply what they have learned elsewhere not to the single topic they managed to learn from; And if we can read the "stupid"s mind and ascertain whether or not this person really is slower, not just the general not being able to express it.

    Otherwise I disagree.



    EDIT: I believe stupidity is like beauty, within the eye of the beholder.


    EDIT2: I don't get Stigmata's message. I've tried telling it to myself, I've tried running it in my head, I've tried to break it down but it all ends at how to define stupid or whether or not stupidity will stay true as stupid no matter how far you go along that road. A stupid mistake with an even greater outcome than suspected can't be stupid. Just unforeseen greatness. geh... I understand what temporal is I just can't get it together in my head. meeep. :'(
    I have a feeling, inkling that says agreed but I don't understand WHY. There's no reason attached except pictures and I don't understand how to express them.

    Agreed.

    The message seemed pretty clear. I think some are getting too caught up on the terminology, rather that what the quote itself was trying to express. I interpreted as saying all the other factors are temporal, whereas stupidity (either in action or thought process) is essentially incurable.

    Oh I agree, I suspect there'd be major differences over what constitutes stupid.
