Is there a cure for stupidity?

23 Jun

Brian Pickrell once said: “The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity. But not in that order.”
And i totally agree. Considering stupidity is often defined as lack of intelligence or understanding i think it goes further. I consider myself an intelligent person. Yes i am not the brightest or the wisest ( not yet at least ;p) but i have a brain and i use it most of the time. This said, i admit i’ve been quite stupid at times too so…can stupidity be cured or, at least, prevented?

I started my investigation in Dr. Smartass’ clinic for metal disorders, checked tons of reports and phoned some colleages…but nothing.

 

Hmmm maybe it has something to do with the brain structure itself, or maybe it’s in the genes, travelling through your veins…passing from mom to children… Is it possible that certain brains are meant to be more stupid since birth?

 

No, that is not possible since really dumb parent sometimes have very bright kids, and viceversa.

When i was lost, deliberating, trying to find the clue…it came to me naturally.

A book from a shelf fell on my head, was painful since it was a thick one, but that gave me the answer…

 

Yes,i know reading a book wont save the world from stupidity, and there are also some people with  a high culture that are amazingly stupid. But i also think the more you read about several subjects, the more you learn and the more your mind opens. And someone with some culture and an open mind is less likely to act like a moron. Even though we all have our moments of dumbness…
