Stupidity


DesDownunder

509 views

Hello, hello, is this thing working? I don't know what is wrong but the date for the blog entries are stuck in 2009, there is no 2010. How stupid is that? :hug:

It was the same with my last entry, but I set it for the December 31 2009 and it posted as January 1 2010. How crazy mixed up is that? :huh: I wonder what will happen this time?

I've had a great idea for writing a story. I will write the first paragraph and post it as being December 31 2009. Then when it changes to January 1 2010, I will find that the story has finished itself. Easy.

:shock:

Does anyone else have a problem with the way things are proceeding this year? I have a theory that the aliens have let loose with a stupid virus and it is affecting everyone except members of AwesomeDude. So if you want to avoid being stupid, join AwesomeDude Forums right now!

It also seems that just writing to any of our authors and letting them know you read their stories will also protect you from this dreaded virus. Of course it will, writing to an author is never stupid. :hug:

Speaking of stupid, I have to buy a new DVD polisher/scratch repair machine for the video store, the old one finally stopped working. Chewing gum and rubber bands are no longer sufficient to keep it running.

I looked at all the machines that are available in OZ, including a locally distributed model from the US. Guess what? The Us one has a timer on the polish fluid tank, so you have to change the polishing fluid when they want you to, and not when you decide it needs changing, just like on some computer printers which force you to change the ink cartridge even when there is plenty of ink still in the tank. Stupid!

I found another machine, almost identical, slightly cheaper, made in Oz (so it will come with its own supply of rubber bands) and it doesn't time out. Hooray for Oz.

We are about to enter our annual stupid season here in Adelaide. Between now and March we will have a plethora of Festivals, car and horse races (separate events -we're not that stupid...yet), as well as an election for our state government, when we will be able to elect...(yes you guessed it)... stupid people...to govern us for the next 4 years. I'm not hopeful of anything but a disastrously stupid result.

Our politicians are no better than anywhere else, all are intent on passing draconian the barbarian type laws to protect us from being stupid, (politicians excepted, no one can cure politicians' stupidity, which explains why they think that passing laws against people being stupid will actually work.)

It would be far better to pass a law which made stupidity compulsory, then no one would want to do it, (except politicians and middle management types.) Senior executives on the other hand are not stupid you know, they are just wallowing in their ill-gotten gains which the poor people were stupid enough to give them.

We are already seeing a record number of people standing as candidates for the election. The electorate where I live will almost certain re-elect the sitting religious-extremist left winger. An oxymoron, do I hear you say? No, not really, he is just stupid, dangerously stupid, unfortunately.

Our left wing party is now more right wing on social issues than the right wing party is. On other issues they haven't a clue, but then neither does the opposition who are just plain, very plainly, stupid, and ugly.

I think both parties will try their hand at Obama type rhetoric with an Aussie accent, which will be not only stupid, but excruciating to say the least.

The GLTB will mount :icon11: a campaign to find out which politicians support gay marriage. That is interesting but a little stupid as the state government cannot override the Ozzie federal marriage law which does not permit same sex marriage even though it grants us the same benefits, and if that sounds stupid to you, you re right, but their Christian beliefs stop them from passing gay marriage laws.

I conclude with a quote I saw on the Net. Don't these people realise that "Jesus had two dads?" :hug:

I am so glad I am member of AwesomeDude.

Avoid the stupidity join AwesomeDude Forums, today. :wav:

So today I made the Stupidity entry a draft, then republished it and then it adopted today's date. :hug: Something is not right. If you are posting and have the same problem please PM me and I will see if I can help.My guess is that the board blog software has a bug (maybe it is the skin) as far as new entry dates are concerned and as such there is little we can do.

Thank you Cole, it helps me to know that guests are seeing the same things I am.It is likely a software problem. There doesn't seem to be an adjustment for adding years to the software, so we may just have to cope with it as best we can for the time being.I suggest people start their blog entries with the actual date as a heading. That way we will have a reference of when it was written as well as the latest day on which the software lost the plot.And yes Cole it is Feb. 2010 here too. :hug:

I would join the Awesome Dude forums, but to do so I'd have to leave and then re-join, which would - Desian logic applied by a Camyesque brain - mean I should really be a politician. Since I can't abide politics, I shan't. See how gloriously unstupid I am?Hmm. Nonsense m'lud. 'ave im struck orf.
