I thought I had heard it all. Then today I see a clip of a union supporter in Wisconsin confronting a supporter of Gov Walker and the union man demands of the other individual "WHY DO YOU THINK YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO YOUR MONEY?" when the Walker man is saying he wants a say in how his tax dollars are spent.

That's not a stupid question.

Oh, it's wrong, and it reveals a lot of interesting assumptions, but it's perfectly consistent with socialist politics.

I'll flip this around and say what the dumbest answer to a question I asked was. Person was applying for an unsecured, personal loan. We are required by law to ask the loan purpose.


her: "I'd like to apply for a personal loan"
me: "We can take your application. I need to ask the reason for the loan, what do you need the funds for?"
her: "I need to pay to file my personal bankruptcy, and also I want to get some new furniture."

Sometimes I wonder how such people know enough to breathe.

Well, the newly bankrupt are great credit risks ... No Chapter 7 for another seven years.
The fact that she will not pay for the furniture doesn't matter to the loan company advancing the funds.
Now letting you know she is unable to pay her bills and will enmesh you in paperwork for her scheduled debt... that is fairly stupid. Why didn't she just say 'mainly furniture' or something.
And heck, a loan? While payment of the filing fee is required, its a rather modest sum and that is all she would need. No need to take out a loan for it.

Social/cultural ignorance.

her: 'Scuse me, can you give me directions to the reservation?
me: Sure, you're here.
her: (pauses, looks around) Umm...where are the Indians?
me: (extends hand and smiles) Nice to meet you.
her: But where are the tee-pees!?
me: (sigh) No tee-pees, we had Longhouse. Like, 200 years ago. We have houses now.
her: (exasperated) Pfft. Thanks. (walks off)

I'm still curious as to what she expected.

Keeping in mind that "News" clips are highly edited to portray the most controversial sentiment possible.

If bored while playing poker I will ask "Are Aces high or low?".

Listen to the whole conversation (youtube) and this statement may have been the brightest thing this moron said. I completely agree that anyone that accepts news clips as facts is out of touch. Always research anything you are interested in to find the whole (real) story.

The newly bankrupt are, but remember, she would be borrowing this money BEFORE she filed, making it part of the discharge.

BTW: Here is No 2:

me: "I can't give you the loan, you have a collection."
him" That is not my fault, should be removed."
me: "Why?"
him: "Well, it was for a fancy watch but the watch was stolen. So I called the company and said they need to remove the debt because it was stolen since I am not going to pay for something I don't have anymore."

We actually had a list of this stuff we kept and passed around.

Gambling related:

In poker leagues, they generally chip-up as soon as the a small chip is no longer needed for the blinds. I.E. When the blinds go from 50/100 to 100/200, the 25 chips are removed.

A good 20% of the time, immediately after finishing the chip-up, someone will ask, "Are the blinds still 50/100?" or "Did the blinds go up?"




Not gambling related:

I occasionally get a booth at bridal shows. FYI: A bridal show is one where a ton of brides come in, visit a lot of vendors such as myself, and sample the food available from that venue

So I'm there, with my complete sound system, playing nice wedding cocktail hour type background music, standing in front of my signs describing my Wedding Entertainment service, talking to brides about their wedding and how I can entertain for their wedding reception and how I do things different from other wedding DJs, etc.

One woman, whom I assume is the mother of a bride, waits for her chance to ask a question: "Do you do weddings?"
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Not a question, but a comment.

When Pope John Paul II died, there was a lot of discussion about his death at the office. Someone brought up the fact that he'd chosen his name to honor his predecessor, John Paul I, who had reigned for a month or so before passing. Somene else said the new Pope, who had not been chosen yet, ought to follow suit and name himself "John Paul II the third."
