We have all seen stupid warning signs and labels before. This post is going narrow the dumb factor specifically to labels and signs that prevent Darwinism. That said a formal definition is in order but before that a few disclaimers.
First off, if you are easily offended by sarcasm, you may wish to stop reading now. Secondly, links will be provided to actual signs when possible, however, these links may cease to function shortly after the post date. These type of images on the web have a tendency to vanish. Finally, please keep in mind that this a satirical, humorous post… not to be taken too seriously. I do not actually endorse removing stupid people from the gene pool.
Definition of Darwinism
1: a theory of the origin and perpetuation of new species of animals and plants that offspring of a given organism vary, that natural selection favors the survival of some of these variations over others, that new species have arisen and may continue to arise by these processes, and that widely divergent groups of plants and animals have arisen from the same ancestors.
2: a theory that inherent dynamic forces allow only the fittest persons or organizations to prosper in a competitive environment or situation.
In layman’s terms, it is often termed “survival of the fittest”. In the context of this post, definition 2 is more relevant. Mainly the focus is that our society is so protective that we let too many survive. This post is themed “stupid people shouldn’t breed” or “death to the dumbest”.
I like lists. I like old movies. I like free. Naturally, I love Open Culture. The blog is in my “Start Here” folder in my feed reader and I often find awesome stuff to share at this site. I read it almost everyday.
A few days ago, I got on my soapbox about the edible laws in Texas. Actually, I let a few musically talented attorneys do most of the talking. I thought I would share some more of their wisdom today… trust me, just shut up and listen.
Thanks for listeing. If you enjoyed the video, you may wish to subscribe to the singing lawyers on YouTube.
We all do dumb things. The two individuals I am about to mention, take it to an entirely new level. Arsenio Hall coined the phrase “things that make you go hmmmm”. I actually have that phrase as a category here. Check out these morons in the news.
How I missed this podcast eludes me. QuackCast, as described by the podcast’s website is “A podcast review of Quacks, Frauds and Charlatans. Oops. Thats not right. That should be Supplements, Complementary and Alternative Medicine i.e. SCAM.”.
Genuine Value – This That Really Make You Love Your Job
This post needs a paragraph of background information. I am a reservations clerk for Marriott. This experience occurred when I was working 12-hour shifts to while dealing with an exceptional demand for reservations due to hurricane Matthew in 2016.
I received a call from a Marriott Silver Elite Member. Silver Elites stay with Marriott often, they are a preferred guest and, rightfully so, also given special attention. This guest resided in Canada and wished to check several existing reservations in the southern United States. Specifically, he wanted to know if there were additional rooms available at the locations. Due to the number of hotels forced to close and the massive number of southern state residents fleeing for safety due to the storm, none had additional rooms. When informed, he replied “cancel those reservations other people need those rooms more”. I thanked him for his noble act, said goodbye and was ready to move on to the next call. I heard the voice in my head saying “wait”.
Instead of moving on to the next call, I made myself unavailable and contacted a Marriott Rewards Associate. I told her what occurred and asked if there was anything we could do to thank the man. She informed me that she would credit additional reward points (which can be used for free night stays) to his account and contact him to let him know why.
Pay rate, working conditions, perks, and benefits are certainly worthy of consideration regarding one’s job. However, less tangible experiences often add genuine value as well. This experience is one such example. Not only did my employer empower me to be able to interact in a positive manner, my supervisor said “sweet” and a co-worker with “awesome” when I described the experience.

There are certain things that should not be done. Then there are certain that are note worthy because they should not have been done and were anyways. This video certainly should fall under the later category.
