Five years of Stupidity

In the first of the articles looking at what has happened in the five years that CallamMcMillan.com has been online, we look at the actions of stupidity. This has to be the easiest of the articles to write since actually, stupidity hasn’t changed at all. People were as stupid in 2007 as they are today. What has changed is the visibility that that stupidity has had. Once upon a time, the best way to see stupidity in action was to watch shows like You’ve been Framed where you would get to see sanitised home videos. Then the internet and especially…

The council and the NeverSeconds blog. Bullet meet Foot!

I remember reading about the NeverSeconds blog, which is a nine year old girl writing about her school lunches and raising money for a charity providing school lunches in African school a few months back, most likely on the BBC and thinking that’s nice, before moving onto more important news. Yesterday however the blog went from being a backwater internet site, sitting alongside the society for the observance of paint-drying’s blog to being on the front page of almost every major news website, both technical and otherwise throughout the world. Why? Her council decided to censor her. Big mistake. Lets…

Another one bites the dust – James Magee

If anybody deserved to be removed from the gene pool for services to stupidity, then here they are. James Magee, a 37 year old musician. James who was two and a half times the legal drink-drive limit decided to cycle along an unlit section of the southbound A10 with no lights and no reflectors. Surely the only thing that could have made it any worse is if he was cycling the wrong way! Unsurprisingly James next experience would have been that of bouncing off the windscreen of a Mini before departing this earth in a puff of stupidity.

Head protection not needed… There’s nothing inside

News from the Caribbean island of St Maarten where the airport backs onto the beach, meaning that anybody stupid enough can ignore the signs warning of injury and death hang onto the airport fence for dear life while being blasted with the wake from a plane preparing for takeoff. Today’s idiot did exactly that… And lost! Better still there is video of it happening. Ouch. Do you think it hurt?

A Kidney for an iPad and iPhone. Steve would be proud!

Normally when we talk about selling body parts for something desirable, we only mean it as a joke. Not so with Mr. Wang a 17 year old from the Anhui province of China who sold a kidney for £2197, a large part of which he spent on an iPad and an iPhone. Unsuprisingly, the fanboy moron involved is now suffering from renal failure and will either live in considerable pain while undergoing dialysis for what remains of his life. Alternatively he will shortly die and will get to meet Steve Jobs up close. Meanwhile the planet will be spared one…

Start as you mean to go on…

So, you’ve just started a blog and you need something great to get it started. Well when your blog is about the extremes of human stupidity, you don’t exactly have to wait long. So Ladies and Gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure I present a woman who seems to want to be punched really hard in the face before being ejected through a tram window. If you can’t be bothered listening to the whole lot, skip to 1:10 for the moment she nearly gets it! Update (30/11/2011): According to the BBC, the woman in the video, identified as Emma West, 34…
