Stupid Should Hurt

Stupid should hurt, and you shouldn't be able to blame someone else when you do something stupid:

Kyle Dubois and his parents claim teacher Thomas Kelley did not warn Dubois and other students of the dangers of the electrical demonstration cords in their electrical trades class.

On March 11, Dubois attached an electrical clamp to one nipple while another student attached another clamp to the other. A third student plugged in the cord.

Dubois was critically injured.

The New Hampshire Union Leader says Dubois' suit contends he suffered permanent brain damage.

I don't think I'm going out on a limb here when I state that the brain damage was done long before the idiot connected an electrical clamp to his nipple.

It's after reading something like this that I always have to add... and they want us to make him proficient too.

Oh if he had only attached the clips to another part of his anatomy- would have done the world a favor.

But Darren, people are no longer expected to have common sense. They are supposed to be nutured and cushioned in cotton batting and protected from every single consequence or unhappiness. This is the core belief of the far Left, the right to eternal happiness, no matter what you do, no matter what it costs, no matter what it takes. Navel gazing is now an Olympic sport.
