The Advantages Of Stupidity

Most people say being stupid will lead no where. They claim that it is the worst possible
condition in which to spend one's life, and if possible, it should be completely avoided.
They would even suggest if the symptoms of stupidity are caught in the early stages, it
could easily be treated by a surgeon. The most effective method used to do this is the
chainsaw technique, later described in volume two. Yet, perhaps if people took a closer
look at some of the advantages stupidity had to offer, they wouldn't have such a negative
attitude toward it. After reading this paper, one will understand the advantages of
stupidity.


Admittedly, stupidity has certain disadvantages. Life isn't a bowl of cherries. And being
stupid doesn't make it any fruitier. Being stupid can annoy even the most sensitive
people. If one acts stupid, and does it in the wrong crowd, like a group of adults, it
will seem more immature than funny. If one is forced to act stupid while dealing with
lower life forms, for example, high school teachers, one may encounter barriers such as
cruelty and insensitivity, with the utterance of statements like, "Think with your head
straight!" or, "You have a brain, use it." Yet these are all true, there are still many
advantages to stupidity.


The first advantage is very easy to understand. Stupid people are never asked to do a lot.
Many have noticed that people tend to steer away from someone they feel may be stupid.
This is for a very good reason. The stupidity which they posses makes a name for
themselves, a name which can be very difficult to shake. Possibly, it is a word, which
describes the working habits of the person, such as "crappy". Yet, this creates a positive
situation for the stupid person. They will have a lot of free time on their hands for more
of life's truly meaningful pleasures. Some of these activities are combing facial hair,
and counting the pixels on a Sony TV. Now, there has been a rumor going around that
suggests that stupid people have low expectations. This is true. They are so stupid that
they don't realize great from O.K. They could have a Sanyo cordless phone, but would
probably choose instead an alarm clock telephone, because it comes free with their
sense-a-matic folding bed. And someone with the "advantage" of stupidity might have a hard
time doing certain tasks, or setting things up. Yet this isn't all bad. For example, if a
stupid person leaves the chore, and comes back to it later, no one will be able to
understand it. Would they get fired from their job? No. For the very simple reason that no
one would understand their work except for them. The job would have to be given back to
the stupid person, perhaps with a higher salary, or someone would do it for them, leaving
them with even more free time!


Free time is great for brainstorming (Admittedly this seems to be a bad choice of words!).
Yet the ideas stupid people create tend to be original. For example, when was the last
time someone stupid said something, and made them think about it? It seems that people are
