An intelligent hell would be

A stupid man’s report ….

“A stupid man’s report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand. ”
–Bertrand Russel

What Irks Me No. 3

Why do people, whether young or old, kids too, throw their trash (candy wrappers, coffee cups, paper bags on the ground, when there is a trash bin, barrel or whatever to put it in. I have spotted empty paper coffee cups placed under the hanging trash receptacle, instead of in put in it.

Is it laziness? Is it stupidity? Or is it that they don’t give a shit, thinking/knowing someone else will pick it up and put it where it belongs.

Shit like that really irks the hell out of me.
