Assorted random miscellany of the tangential sort and otherwise
Always and inevitably every one of us underestimates the number of stupid individuals who are in circulation. The probability that a certain person will be stupid is independent of all other characteristics of that person. A stupid person is one who causes damage to another person or group of persons and does not simultaneously either realize any advantage for himself or, in fact, undergoes a loss. Non-stupid persons always underestimate the harmful potential of stupid people. In particular, non-stupid persons constantly forget that in any place or time and under all circumstances to deal and/or associate oneself with stupid individuals will infallibly prove to be a costly error.

Takes me back to the election of Ronald Reagan...twice.
