Stupid is as stupid does

Dumb & Dumber fired after video of their exploits posted on Facebook

People are stupid.

They really are…especially these two fools.

Two New Plymouth men have lost their jobs after some bird-brained conveyor belt antics backfired at Tegel Foods.

The workers were fired for riding the company’s conveyor belt while some of the plant’s machinery was undergoing maintenance, one of the men said.

Kaleb Parkinson, 21, posted a video on his Facebook page of what happened.

He and his co-worker were caught after a person saw the video on Facebook and reported the incident, he said.

Stupid is as stupid does, Ctd

Stupid

For some reason the terminally stupid always seem to run off to the media to prove that they are stupid.

I’ve come to the conclusion that they want the world to know they are stupid.

In general my mantra has become, “People are stupid”.

People think Blenheim woman Vanessa Wills tried to kill herself. She hasn’t, she’s just trying to hide a bad decision.

A spur-of-the-moment choice and the promise of a cheaper tat has left her with an infected tattoo on her wrist – a tattoo she now wishes she never had done.

She went to a tattoo studio to have a small heart tattooed on her wrist, with angel wings and a small locket. She wanted the heart coloured purple, but changed her mind to red at the last minute.

“He was like ‘Well red ink, I’ll use these bottles and it will be cheaper for you’ and I was like ‘Oh cool’. I paid $30 for it. Normally it costs $80 to $100.  Read more »

“Somebody has to be held accountable”…Yeah, your dead son is responsible

You have to wonder at the mentality, or lack thereof of a person whose son was more than twice the legal blood alcohol limits, driving at 120km/h in a 50km/h speed zone and smashes himself into a power pole…and she wants someone else held accountable for his death.

Emergency workers have described how they watched signs of life ebb away from an Auckland man trapped inside a wreckage surrounded by live power-lines.

Meanwhile “anxious” lines company workers looked for the power box.

The emergency workers couldn’t reach Raymond Tuporo for more than two hours and the 26-year-old died as a result of severe injuries suffered in the September 2, 2012, crash.

A coroner’s inquest in Auckland today heard Mr Tuporo, known as Ray, lost control on a corner, drove over a curb and smashed into a power pole on Neilson St in Onehunga about 2.15am.

A police investigation found Mr Tuporo was driving about 120km/h in a 50km/h zone and had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit.

Ambulance officer Andrew Christie said when he arrived at the scene Mr Tuporo was severely injured and only his upper chest and head were visible.

“He was able to lift his head and respond to us with incomprehensible words and groans. His breathing was rapid and shallow.” Medical staff kept regular checks on Mr Tuporo, from as close as they could get to him, but his responses were declining.

Shortly before 3am, Northpower employees arrived and said they would isolate the affected area in 15 to 20 minutes.

But more than an hour later, at 4.10am, they still hadn’t done so.

Mr Christie said the workers were “looking anxious” and said they couldn’t find the appropriate power box.

By 4.35am power was off and cutting equipment was put to work to free Mr Tuporo.

Five minutes later ambulance staff finally reached him, but he was dead, Mr Christie said.

Americans are stupid

Sex dead, says NZ Herald

How can people who only nights ago had tennis elbow from all the back slapping over their “Awards” continue to put out this sort of product?

Somehow, they are “the best” at it.

Apparently.

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 »

You flee, you die – Some people never learn

Once again the media are all aghast that a young teen is dead after fleeing the police:

Two families are mourning a Hamilton 17-year-old who was killed when he crashed a stolen car in the early hours of Waitangi Day after a short police chase.

A small group gathered yesterday morning at the crash scene, on the intersection of Baverstock Rd and Wexford Rise in the rural suburb of Rotokauri.

It was just hours after the Nawton youth, known as “Rock”, had been thrown from the vehicle he had stolen from a Dinsdale address.

Also in the 1991 Nissan Maxima was a 14-year-old boy, travelling in the front seat, who was last night in a critical condition in Hamilton Hospital with serious leg and abdominal injuries. A 15-year-old girl, who had been wearing a seatbelt, was uninjured.  Read more »

Darwin takes one, silent trains kill

Darwin has reached out and taken a stupid person, and it was a killer train that was the instrument of death:

A teenager spraying graffiti tags in Sydney’s inner west was caught “off-guard” and killed instantly by a train he may not have heard coming, a coronial inquest has heard.

Apprentice plumber Tre Toman, 18, was tagging near Lewisham station with two friends on the night of January 11 last year when a city-bound train hit him at the West Street overpass.

The Glebe Coroners court on Wednesday heard that Toman loved painting and spraying his “Ontre” tag, which can still be seen along rail corridors and elsewhere around Sydney.  Read more »
