How Many Kinds Are There?

United States
December 22, 2008 9:13pm CST
I think most of us have said, or heard someone else ask, What kind of an idiot are you? I never know how to answer that because I always thought an idiot is an idiot. I suppose there are varying degrees of idiocy, but is there a certain point in there where you reach the point of no return and become a full time idiot? Can you be a part time idiot? Can idiocy be cured? Can you learn how to be an idiot? What kind of idiot are you anyway?

I have pondered your question for several minutes and have decided that I am probably a full time idiot. I think however I will save the reasons for another discussion. Hi everybody!

I'm not real sure about the question about uploading photos; when I started they didn't have the copy/paste rule for 500 or any of that. You could upload photos into any discussion at any time.

I look forward to sharing but the reason I haven't used that as a discussion yet is it really shows me up for the idiot that I am and it's not funny either. I should tell it though to see if anyone else finds themselves in the same predicament.

I guess that would depend on how often you keep your mouth shut, and how often you open it and stick your foot in it.*L*

*LOL* Like that doesn't make them suspicious at all! I can just hear it. "Mommy, what are you eating?" "mfng, dfmfmghbp". "What?" riya swallows real hard. "Nothing, why do you think I am eating anything?"

I think there are basically two main kinds Bo. Part-time idiocy is definitely an existing condition in my opinion as there are those that commit occasional acts of idiocy, yet still manage to maintain a general aura of normality in their lives the rest of the time..... And then there are the "born idiots"! These are the truly gifted idiots that couldn't arrange a drunken party in a brewery, or always PUSH when the door says PULL; or end up President! I don't think there is a cure for it either. It must be some sort of hidden gene sequence that is triggered into action by common elements such as air. As for me, I prefer the part-time idiots because their outbursts of idiocy can be very unexpected and unpredictable. A full-time idiot becomes too constant after a while and they can lose their lustre. I am not sure which category I fall under. I would say that I have the idiot genes deep within, but they have the ability to lie dormant when required. Or maybe not?? I dunno really.

Well, I guess unpredictable is probably a little more entertaining than the stuff you see everyday from the full time idiots, huh? I think you might be one of the best kinds of idiots, maybe? Who knows. I thin that our level of idiocy might be better judged by non idiots. Are there any of those around? You know, if there are any non idiots out there, I kind of have to feel sorry for them.

Just because it says it's white chocolate, doesn't mean it is really chocolate! Oh, wait, we've already had this conversation, haven't we?

I think we're all born with some idiocy in us, it's just the best of us who actually let that come out!

Ha ha, good one, I am your part time idiot in study. I swing wildly between absolutely brilliant and mind bogglingly stupid (idiot). I have many fellow students to learn from.

There's no doubt that I am an idiot Bo. Well, a fool at least. I keep coming back here for ritual humiliation, teasing, barracking and spanking for a start. I also like the kisses and cuddles. I'm 50 for goodness sake. Why do I need constant cuddling? Oh, I forgot, I'm male and we always need our egos massaging! But there we are. A prize eejut and quite happy that way.

I don't believe that there are idiots. People who don;t want to use their minds maybe, but everybody can if he wants to or is trained to do so. Let's take for example children with down's syndrome. They make use of their mental capability and do use their mind if taught from a young age. however I do believe that anybody of us did some idiocy in his lifetime.
