    How dumb are my fellow Brits in the UK?

    Here's an image from a BBC web-page article today about how to wear/not wear a facemask....

    They're so dumb that they have a clean unpolluted country where wearing masks is extremely rare hence they're not used to it.

    The answer lies here:

    Brexit - It's Still On!

    (It's 'extraordinarily').

    Billy Connolly does a great piece on public bathroom hand driers. On how they come with instructions printed on them.

    For those who were wiping their hands on them and complaining they're not half as good as the rolling towels.


    Then there are the ones that have big picture instructions on them, for the real fucking braindead among us.



    It's probably funnier when Billy Connolly tells it.

    Last night I was surfing on YouTube and I came up on an old show by Lay Leno (questions on the street) who would test Americans knowledge by asking the questions on a particular subject.
    I don't think Brits are any more stupid than anyone else , I am afraid it is a situation that with social media is becoming prevalent around the world.
    I think people get trapped inside the bauble of their own personal interests to the exclusion of everything else and become ignorant about everything other than what interest them.

    Or even inside the bubble, but use the word bauble if you want.

    The Aussie show CNNNN did a fair job of making average Americans look gobsmackingly stupid around 20 years ago. Though, probably not that difficult to do.



    Some of those are classics.

    Indeed, just to see how entrenched the stupid remainers have become. At least SA does not tried to hide his hatred. The EU trying hard to appear ambivalent, but paddling like hell underneath, just to try and punish the UK for leaving.
    London holds firm as financial services centre of Europe - CityAM : CityAM

    Nah . . . a bit too banshee-like, switch.

    The rhetoric is heating up by Brits and the British press, as it always does - and the fools fall for it again and again like Min-Americans

    The UK has its fair share of stupid. Unfortunately, attempts by Cyrille and SA to attach some kind of political motivation to it, is only ever found in the Guardian, or those shallow tabloid reports on so called celebrity found in the DM.
    For them, failure is sustainable for now.

    Jackoff, chico, and flake etc are some of the dumbest posters on TD, so I would say it is more on par.

    I think it’s fair to say no one country has a monopoly on stupid.

    That reminds me of a novel read decades ago . . . some 'abcd' are more equal than others

    Maybe you should polish up your reading comprehension? I said the UK is on par with the US. There are loads of idiots in America as there are in the UK.

    backspit as you call him is Canadian as is PB, so there is that.
