    Dumbest Minds of Modern Times?

    So here's the Yang to the Yin of all these threads about the greatest minds of our times...

    I hereby nominate Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahaf, former Iraqi Information Minister, for his complete and utter inability to recognize defeat.

    I'm sure there are better ones out there, but he came to mind first. Definitely check out the "M.S.S. Throughout History" link.

    GW?

    I mean c'mon, when a small volunteer firestation in Florida sends aid to New Orleans faster than the Commander in Chief of arguably the most powerful country in the world... That's gotta be up there.

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    Certain nominations are off-limits to me by virtue of my lot in life...

    I nominate Cindy Sheehan for wrecking her marriage, alienating her family, and making a general ass of herself in public just to prove the Prez ruined her life.

    I love the "dumbest minds" thing--makes it easy to keep believing you're smart, and saves you all that pesky thinking business.

    I don't want a debate. I'm just asking people's opinions.

    I think nominations for "Master of the Obvious" are in another thread.

    **** may roll down hill, but you're not above me. If you need a punching bag, look elsewhere.

    I take crap off of nobody, and that includes you. I figure fair is fair. You out of the blue go and trash my thread, so why shouldn't I do the same?

    I feel quite comfortable with my belief that it's wrong to blow my pets' heads off with shotguns, thanks. If that makes me an enemy somehow, I can live with that just fine.

    You're big and important. Feel better?

    I don't consider myself big or important. I just hold grudges against people who slam me.

    There are plenty of people who agreed with my comments in that thread... make sure you keep your whole list current.

    I asked for opinions, and got many. But from you, I got insults.

    Seconded. Arguments can be settled through PM's. Not to be confused with PMS, which starts many argu... Uh, never mind, I'll shut up now.





    And if anyone was offended, that was meant as nothing more than a little humor to lighten the mood - feel free to send me a PM if you feel otherwise

    No offense taken, in fact it's appreciated.
