Universe vs Stupidity

I listened to a speaker this week who referred to Einstein as saying:  "Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe."  I found this research on the  subject.  Obviously there is some question as to whether Einstein actually said this, but let's just talk about stupidity for a moment.

Ever heard of Larry Walters and the Lawn Chair Pilot?  Here is the Wikipedia Story, so be sure to read the entire story to see what you think.  Basically, he attached a large number of helium filled balloons to a lawn chair, loaded up some food and drink and was launched into the air.  He went much higher than expected and was charged with interfering with airplane traffic, etc.  After the incident, he even had a short stint as a speaker about his motivation and experience.  

What's that quote from Forest Gump?  Stupid is as stupid does?

What is the stupidest think you have heard of?  Let's all have a chuckle today.

Have a great Wednesday!
