Can't Fix Stupid

Updated on July 5, 2013

Definition of Stupid

In the hit movie Forest Gump, played by Tom Hanks, the character Forest was always being mistaken for being stupid, when asked "Are you stupid?" Forest would always answer "Stupid is, is stupid does." Exactly what does that mean,What exactly is "Stupid"? The free online dictionary gave this definition, 1. Tending to make poor decisions or careless mistakes. Marked by a lack of intelligence or care; foolish or carelessness. To clarify this lengthy explanation, stupid is when you know better than to do something but you do it anyway.

The origin of Stupid

We ask the all important question, where does stupid come from, how did it all begin? To accurately answer that question we have to start at the beginning, Adam and Even were placed in a beautiful, five hundred square mile garden. They had every kind of fruit tree and plants to eat, they had control over everything in the garden, the only thing God told them they couldn’t do was eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They were told that the day they ate of the tree, they would surely die. Easy enough right? You would think, but human nature being what it is, Eve the mother of us all, (consequently also the mother of stupid). Found herself along with her husband Adam (the father of stupid), in the only place in a 500 mile radius where they could get into trouble, at the tree. That single act of stupid changed the lives of all mankind forever.

For those who think I have mislabeled Adam and Eve as the mother and father of stupid; consider their son Cain. Cain was the world’s first murderer who killed his brother out of envy. In order to rein in stupid, God explained it in his word so man would know what Stupid was and how to avoid it. He that knows to do good and doesn’t do it, it is a sin to him. There my friend is “stupid” defined. “If you know you shouldn’t do it and you do it anyway, that is both stupid and a sin.” Considering this fact we can conclude that stupidity is a sin.

This brings us back to our friend Forest Gump, who was often mistaken for being stupid. However considering the facts we learned above, we can be assured that our simple minded, good hearted friend was not stupid. If he had been, he would have had a full understanding of what he was doing and the consequences of his actions. A simpleton such as Gump doesn’t really have a grasp on the difference between right and wrong. Those who choose to be stupid on the other hand, know exactly what they are doing, but they do it anyway. They choose to ignore the obvious, even after being warned of the outcome, as did Adam and Eve.

Signs of Stupidity

While there are many levels of stupid, the signs leading up to it are blatantly obvious. The first sign of stupid is when a person does something that everyone but them seems to know that the outcome isn't going to be good. It usually starts with "Here hold my beer and watch this!" Then sometimes there are more subtle approach, like this one, you are having a conversation with person you consider an authority on the topic you are discussing, when all of a sudden out of nowhere he says "betcha ain't never seen anybody do this," and he crushes a beer can on his forehead. there you have it, just another sign of stupid, If you ever wanted to be able to spot stupid then here's your sign.
