Stupidity - especially the willful variety.

It has had huge historical impact, in fact much more than intelligence.

I assumed that stupidity came in genes - and t shirt on occasion. Is it a quality? A strained one then that droppeth like one god-almighty hail storm and so on. However, start a thread on it, do and high light historical instances...... well some of them. Or was my notion a stupid idea; yeah, probably.
