Not a history major

Today, in history class, we were talking about Ancient Rome, and what childbirth would have been like back then. One girl asked in all seriousness why they didn't use ultrasound machines to see what sex their babies were. I have to deal with people like this on a daily basis. FML

Well I sure hope she is pretty and can dance very well on a pole.


If this was a history class in a grade school it was kind of acceptable and even cute to say that, but if it's in a college... *facepalm*

My boyfriend told me that in his history class, some wanna-be gangster dumbfuck actually believed the teachers obvious sarcasm that the horse was 'invented' after the first car. Then there's the time where everyone in my English class flipped shit and ran around like confused headless chickens because the desks were rearranged differently. People are awfully too stupid...

In my world history class, my teacher announced that there was a question on the test where enough people got it wrong that she was forced to address it. The question was "What language is spoken in Australia?"

89 - Pfft! Everyone knows that they speak American there.

#81: That was a badly formulated question. Vietnamese, Greek and Warlpiri are spoken in Australia. They should have asked what the de facto national language was, or the most common language.

1- I'd love to, other than the stupid outnumbering the remotely intelligent 500:1....on a good day.

#1's comment doesn't seem so clever after the Hoboken Tragedy which occurred today...

94- It was a multiple choice test and the answers to choose from were French, English, German, or Australian. Obviously she meant the official language and not some indigenous language that's only spoken by 5 percent of the population.

Edit: Tragedy in Connecticut; Shooter from Hoboken(speculated).

My comment was posted the night before the tragedy. My heart goes out to all the families who will have an empty seat at the dinner table this holiday season. But at the same time my comment wasn't serious. I'd never support senseless killing. I'm sorry if my comment offends anyone.

112- I'm certain you didn't mean it! I was just saying. =]

Why are they all so stupid in the states. They all believe that God created all the technology for us..

3- somebody has to work at McDonalds right?

Without idiots, there would be no government.

Without idiots I would have no one to make me feel smart D:

The world today is just sad. I have lost most hope for humanity.

You realise that there are idiots in every generation, every corner of the world; right? Our idiots are more known because of the Internet and social media though; they're louder now.

I'm surprised you just now lost faith in humanity. I lost it long ago when "YOLO" and ArkMusicFactory were invented.

I do realize there are idiots in every generation. Hell, there are idiots in my generation, namely the beings who cannot last a single second without updating their "statuses" or "tweets". I'm just stating that the world is rather sad today.

The number of idiots increases exponentially with the global population.

Well I sure hope she is pretty and can dance very well on a pole.

You hope that I am a "She.." You sicko! D: I am quite fond of my balls...

I'm absolutely sure that he was referring to the 'she' in the FML post so...

56- He was responding to the post above his which clearly states "everyone." OP is not the only one that fits under the category of "everyone."

I don't know what's worse the fact that some girl walked in to a Chinese food store and said it smells like chinese food in here or this. I think they're both the same. What has the world come too.

No, no, he just forgot the comma and question mark. "What, has the world come too?"

What a dummy. It's obvious that they all really loved surprises so they didn't use it.

But all my teachers said there is no such thing as a stupid question. Hahaha, who are they kidding?

Just sit back and wait for natural selection.

Chances are she will probably become a ho.. Have lots of sex.. Lots of kids.. Stupidity spread.. So yea it'll really work there...

Unfortunately in this world the less educated a person is, the more children they are likely to have.

Don't just hate this generation.. They've all had stupid people...

I'm just throwing this out there, but you're the one laying in the middle of a road like vehicles don't hit people or something.

A lot of idiots now a days. Not a big fan of this generation as well!

Says someone from every generation, ever.

Because there were never any stupid people before our generation ever. After all, one only has to think of the geniuses who believed that the earth was flat, that the whole universe revolved around the earth, that disabled people were possessed by demons, and that slavery, Apartheid, and every genocide that has ever happened were good ideas to see how far the average intelligence has fallen.

perhaps you should look at who taught this generation. people learn from their parents.

I'm not sure if people have gotten dumber over the years or if they're just so wrapped up in their own pointless little lives that they're less aware of their surroundings but something has happened to bring about a level of brainlessness that defies belief. In this case, though, it's pure lack of intelligence.

It's the Internet. It allows stupidity to spread to millions of people in a matter of seconds.

Aha! That explains it. I knew people seemed dumber today than in 1977 when I met my wife. Wait a sec. 1977. Jimmy Carter was President and his brother Billy was making beer. I guess people were just as stupid back then. It's just that there's more of them now.
