People are Stupid

Now that really is taking one in the chook

Taking on for team, watch as this chick cops a taser in the butt.

One woman came up with a novel way to raise money for a charity by charging a group of men $100 each to watch her get tasered wearing a bikini.

The bizarre video, which has nearly 250,000 hits, was posted today on YouTube under the title ‘Girl in Bikini Takes Taser Like a Champ.’   Read more »

A good judge

Why can’t we have judges like this in New Zealand?

Richard Dameron, 58, began a week-long vigil in front of a Cleveland police station as penance for drunkenly threatening cops.

A man who threatened police officers in Cleveland has been forced to stand near a police station with a sign describing himself as an idiot.

A judge in Ohio ordered 58-year-old Richard Dameron to stand outside a local police station with a sign bearing an apology.

Dameron, who was convicted of threatening officers in 911 calls, began the vigil on Monday and must stand outside for three hours each day for the rest of the week.

Speaking of his punishment, he said:

“I’ll stand up and be a man and do what I’ve got to do and get it over with. I apologised to all the officers. I get drunk a lot of times and I make a fool out of myself.”

Bold black writing on the yellow sign reads:

“I apologise to Officer Simone and all police officers for being an idiot calling 911 threatening to kill you. I’m sorry and it will never happen again.”

His public shaming is not the first of its kind in the city.

Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr who sentenced Dameron, previously made a woman wear an “idiot” sign in public for driving onto the pavement to overtake a school bus.

Idiots walk among us

Some people really are stupid, the problem is they generally are prolific breeders as well, spreading the stupid seed with gay abandon.

A worker, who was fired after his boss saw Facebook photos of him at a waka ama championship when he was meant to be at home sick, faces bankruptcy if hit up for legal costs.

Bruce Taiapa, of Gisborne, must pay his former employer, Turanga Ararau, $12,315 after he took the training institute to the Employment Relations Authority. It ruled the institute was entitled to sack him because he misused his sick leave. He appealed to the Employment Court, and lost that appeal.  Read more »

Turns out you can’t live on light

The woman I blogged about attempting to prove you can live on light has apparently found out that you can’t.

This woman is so blindingly stupid she should be locked up to protect others. I bet she votes Green.

Naveena Shine, the Eastside woman testing whether she could live just on sunshine, is calling it quits Wednesday, on what would be Day No. 47, after losing 20 percent of her body weight.

After dropping about 20 percent of her body weight, Naveena Shine, the 65-year-old Eastside woman who got worldwide publicity for trying to live on just light and no food, is calling it quits with her grand experiment.

Monday was Day No. 45 of no food, just water and tea “with a splash of milk.”

Shine had dropped to 126 pounds from her original weight of 159 pounds on her 5-foot, 4-inch frame.

She says she’s quitting on Wednesday in part because she’s run out of money, and in part because of the public reaction.  Read more »

People are Stupid, especially those who are Breatharians

Really…they are stupid, especially this woman who thinks she can live on sunlight alone…she can’t and is about to find out.

Nutters be nutters.

Navenna Shine of Seattle is planning to livestream her own death.

Well, technically she’s planning to livestream an experiment in which she attempts to survive for up to six months on nothing but the natural light of the sun, but it’s essentially the same thing.

Shine, founder of Living on Light, is a follower of the Jasmuheen branch of Breatharianism.

Jasmuheen (born Ellen Greve) is a thoroughly debunked fraud, and her pseudoscientific claims are directly responsible for the deaths of several people.

Why does Shine believe her “experiment” will end differently? Because she really believes.   Read more »

People are stupid, complaining about the quality of the meth

Some people are born stupid, others work at it. I mean, complaining about the quality of your meth??. Still at least it resulted in the capturing of a meth dealer.

A Far North drug dealer was charged after receiving intercepted text messages from customers complaining about the quality of his product.

Kaitaia District Court was told last week of the extraordinary lengths Aaron Kuvarji, 30, of Kaitaia, went to avoid detection of his dealing in methamphetamine, and how he finally came unstuck.  Read more »

When Social Media backfires

We have seen various social media disasters from politicians, but imagine when your social media disaster results in an indictment in a US court. That is hwat has happened to Eric Harroun a fool who decided to go fight in Syria and post his exploits all over Facebook. The case also highlights how stupid some laws are, because Harroun has been charged with using a “weapon of mass destruction”…which was an RPG!

Any term that conflates nuclear weapons with any other kind of weapon is bound to be a poor descriptor. But the U.S. government has reached peak absurdity by labeling a rocket-propelled grenade a weapon of mass destruction.

Technically, Eric Harroun, a U.S. Army veteran who joined the rebellion in Syria, has only been charged with using a “destructive device.” (More on him in a second.) But U.S. law isn’t particularly diligent about differentiating dangerous weapons from apocalyptic ones. The affidavit of FBI agent Paul Higginbotham undergirding Harroun’s recent arrest and charge sums it up like this: “There is probable cause to believe that, in or about January 2013 to March 2013, Eric Harroun conspired to use a weapon of mass destruction, i.e. a Rocket Propelled Grenade, outside of the United States, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2332a(b).”  Read more »

Explaining is losing

Some people just don’t know when to shut up, like this sicko who like to film women in public toilets.

Auckland man Ian Frazer, 42, pleaded guilty in March last year to secretly filming up women’s skirts at Westfield Albany after being nabbed by a security guard at the Farmers store.

He was found with up to 250 short videos, many of them painstakingly collated by him and given sexually explicit titles. Frazer said he did not regard the videos as offensive because the women had no idea they had been filmed.  Read more »

Man killed lighting cigarette. Darwin’s theory is still valid

Darwin came calling with the Grim Reaper and won this time:

An invalid beneficiary died from burns after he tried to light a cigarette while connected to an oxygen supply, Otago-Southland coroner David Crerar has found.

Patrick John Ferris, 53, of Gore, died on August 14 in Southland Hospital from burns and inhalation injuries to his throat and lungs.  Read more »

Give that man a DB

I am sure there was a movie about idiots like this:

A gun-toting thug picked the wrong couple to pull a pistol on at the Hamilton Gardens yesterday.

Instead of pocketing one or two wallets from frightened tourists, the 19-year-old found himself disarmed and pinned against the tarseal.

The attempted mugging is the latest in a string of incidents in or near the city’s prime tourist attraction, casting further doubt on the area’s safety.

Chartwell man Ian Morgan, 69, witnessed the incident and stepped in to help.

He runs a sober driving service and was waiting to pick up clients near the gate one barrier about 1am when he saw a couple walk past.  Read more »
