    “The difference between genius and stupidity is; ….”

    and its corollary:
    “What’s the difference between Ignorance and Indifference?”

    It’s the first one, but that second one is very good as well :-)

    Would it be either of these??? lol

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

    “The difference between genius and stupidity is; genius has its limits.”

    common sense isn’t always that common.

    This may not be true, but I do recall hearing about a hospital where there was a greater than average number of deaths in their intensive care ward.

    After a series of investigations over whether the level of care was insufficient or the equipment was faulty, someone notice that when the night cleaners came through to do their work, when they found that when there were no free power points (plugs), the cleaners would unplug something, do their work, and then replace the plug.


    Un-plugging equipment in an intensive care ward, even for a short time, is not recommended.

    As much as I want that story to be untrue, It has that ring of *to stupid to be made up*

    I wonder if it’s on Snopes?

    Ah :)

    I was wrong, that story is false


    still, what was that quote people keep attributing to Albert Einstein?

    Common sense overdone.

    Yup, this is from the UK, I read about it a year or so ago.  I seem to remember it was not posted as a result of an incident, but by an over eager “health and safety” expert, who presumably failed the part of the h & s course where they teach that it is not necessary to (what we UK residents call) “state the bleeding obvious”!

    This falls under the heading of, “Some Peoples Kids!”

    Tomato or Tomatoe, Potato or Tomato; actually it’s potato and tomato with the oe for plural, but some of us pronounce it differently; no big deal, I don’t think.

    Favor, Favour, Color, and Colour are all correct. Of course the Europeans do have a flair for the dramatic.

  • David Roper

    Favour is 6 letters. Favor is only 5. We Yankies get things done faster. Oops, I should have said Yanks (only 5) LOL

  • RogueBase


    Ummmm, thats “proper” english. You yanks are the ones that butchered the language.. lol

  • OldMalden

    That’s what they get up to in UK hospitals? (Spell check!)

    I don’t understand this honey, gran’ma looked so well this morning, the hospital said she would have been released tomorrow, and they’re just as puzzled ….. I’m just so glad little Gunther was there with her when she passed away ….
