One day a wise-man took one of his students and had him hold up a pane of glass to look through.  He asked him to describe what he saw.

"I see trees and grass and the sky and clouds and little children playing on the lawn" said his student.

Then the wise-man told him to hold up a mirror and tell him what he saw.  "I see only myself" said the student.

The wise-man replied.  "See what a difference a little bit of silver makes."

The right's stupidity spreads, enabled by a too-polite left

by George Monbiot
Guardian UK
February 8, 2012


Self-deprecating, too liberal for their own good, today's progressives stand back and watch, hands over their mouths, as the social vivisectionists of the right slice up a living society to see if its component parts can survive in isolation. Tied up in knots of reticence and self-doubt, they will not shout stop. Doing so requires an act of interruption, of presumption, for which they no longer possess a vocabulary.

Perhaps it is in the same spirit of liberal constipation that, with the exception of Romeo Tuma, we have been too polite to mention the Canadian study published last month in the journal Psychological Science, which revealed that people with conservative beliefs are likely to be of low intelligence. Paradoxically it was the Daily Mail that brought it to the attention of British readers last week. It feels crude, illiberal to point out that the other side is, on average, more stupid than our own. But this, the study suggests, is not unfounded generalisation but empirical fact...

  I saw what you did there...

There's no gentle way to put it: People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb, according to a new study that is bound to stir public controversy...



 
I've seen stupid people on both sides of the fence.

And for those people I've seen who say they're so smart, they're usually lacking the most common of common sense.
Book smart, life stupid.

You got the joke wrong.

"Neutrino steps up to the bar.

Bartender can't see him yet, so neutrino, thinking he's being ignored, leaves in a huff (at 1.8c).

Bartender then says, "we don't serve neutrinos here", and everybody laughs at the bartender because the neutrino had already left."

 
Ideally you should have posted this before beaker posted the joke.
