DailyDirt: Stupiditry, Yah

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Everyone does something stupid from time to time, but there are some stories that are just amazingly bizarre and a little bit dumb -- and they should be shared. But the Darwin Awards are a bit too brutal because someone has to die (or be made sterile) as a result of his/her own stupidity. So here are just a few examples of stupiditry in action, where people might get injured but not too seriously. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Re: Felony charges?

    Is anyone else bothered by the idea of making a felon out of someone who didn't do any harm to anyone? I'm not trying to make excuses for the women, what she did is wrong and she deserves to pay for it and society should not tolerate it...but a felon? That seems a bit extreme.

    Welcome to zero-tolerance law enforcement, where circumstances don't matter. Just like suspending a student for having touched (and then refused) drugs.
