Stupid vs desperate
There are stupid people and there are desperate people and there are stupid desperate people.
Desperate people can act stupid and commit some foolish mistakes. That does not mean they are stupid. The desperation pushes them over the edge and into the valley of stupidity.
Stupid people don’t have to be desperate many times. But their stupidity still jumps out of the water at you.
Then there is that grey area where stupid people are desperate. That is just a part of life as life does not owe anyone anything. But it does not cut down their stupidity. They are stupid. Period.
We must know to spot the difference between them. Else we will join the ranks of the stupid people.
