Dunning-Kruger effect.

People aren't any stupider than they ever were, but before the internet it was much harder for them to broadcast their stupidity to the entire world.

How dare they not know this one guy who landed on the moon decades before they were born?

Why does not knowing who someone is = stupidity? If no one had ever told you who he was, and he'd never come up in conversation, then obviously, you won't know who he was. All they're asking for is clarification. No one knows the name of the first man to make fire. Does that mean we're all fucking stupid (for argument's sake, let's assume there aren't already a million reasons we really are)? Jeez.


But yeah, R.I.P. Neil. He helped change what we thought was possible.

Though I could answer that, it's easier to point out it's more than just that. That one guy assumed he was Lance Armstrong who is an entirely different person, to then proudly proclaim he must have died of drugs. Apparently he felt he was well-informed enough to make such a statement about someone. Now that is stupid.

6. I previously thought it was possible for everyone to know of his achievement. With Neil's help, by dying, he changed what we thought was possible.

7. Who is this guy named Abraham Linkedin and why is he trending on presidents day?

Because holy shit he landed on THE MOON. Kinda important shit.

Not knowing who invented fire actually DOES make us stupid as well. Somebody should have kept track of that shit, but nope! Now it's lost to time, because we're dumb. Kinda like how after rome collapsed, people straight up forgot how to make concrete until the Renaissance.

Trending.

Possibly the most annoying made up internet word that has ever been spoken by a webtard on [Instert social network here].

Seriously though, why don't people realise it makes them sound like complete imbeciles with smart phones and tablets for hands? :evil:

We need a new social network.

It will be called D'oh!
Every D'oh you send has the word D'oh appended to the front or back, random choice.
If you "like" something you hit the "I Concur" button.

Sample I pulled from Twitter:

Madonna: "Listen, everyone is entitled to my opinion... D'oh! "

Bill Gates: "Prime Minister Meles Zenawi was a visionary leader who brought real benefits to Ethiopia’s poor. Our thoughts are with his family... D'oh! "

The very next tweet on results for Bill Gates page:
Injustice Facts: "The fortune of Bill Gates can feed 300,000 impoverished Americans for an entire lifetime... D'oh! "

Hang on a what - there are people that don't know who the FIRST MAN TO LAND ON THE MOON WAS?

I could kinda get not knowing all of the exploits, like the fact the landers computer failed for the last few hundred metres and Niel basically eyeballed the moon-landing in manual without breaking a goddamn sweat - but not knowing who was the first man to land on the moon, at least via a cultural reference.

Good god - its as bad as those morons who thought Titanic was a fictional movie, not real events - or that the gunpowder plot was some kind of mockumentary.

Neils passing has made the world seem a little less open to me, due to the fact that for the moment, our last great age of exploration has ground to a distinct standstill - we can only hope that our generation meets up to his, as it won't be surpassing it any time soon.

Which is a shame, because of these morons, I don't want to live on this planet any more.

No, I refuse to acknowledge the Titanic as real events. That guy who shot a passenger and then shot himself was nothing like that in real life and went down with the ship helping people off. So because of bullshit like that? NO, "Titanic" is not real events. It's merely based on real events, and we all know how loosely defined that term can be.

It is kinda sad that people don't know who he was. He is one of the few humans to walk on something that wasn't planet earth. And there isn't going to be anymore of those people until we land on mars, and who even knows if that’s even within our lifetime. But sadly I'm not surprised. What I do want to know is, was he on anyone’s death list?
