"Think of how stupid the average person is,
and realize half of them are stupider than that."
George Carlin (1937-2008)
You know, I didn't know that George Carlin had died. Too bad. I would have thought that the guy who said "It isn't a near miss when two planes get too close to each other, it's a near hit" should have lived a lot longer so he could speak more truth. Anyway, his observation about the average person is a bit unfriendly, but of course actually true…..and keep in mind, most of them can vote…
Still, I think most of the time I prefer to say what George said, this way: Think of everything that's a little bit haywire in the average person, and realize that half of us are at least a little bit better than that.
It keeps hope alive…
Did you know that Carlin was a meteorologist? Sample: "Weather forecast for tonight: dark. Continued dark overnight, with widely scattered light by morning."
