By Bob Fenster. Never kiss a rattlesnake. Put on the parachute before jumping from the plane. Don't bring your dog along if you're going to rob a bank. These seem like obvious enough strategies, but unfrotunately, we seem to be a race of rattlesnake kissers.
Duh! The Stupid History of the Human Race is a hilarious collection of the stupid things that people do-even the really smart people. "Part 1: The Stupid Chronicles" details the unbelievably idiotic things people have done, organized by such topics as politics, history, sports, arts, science, and dumb plays in the face of fate. "Part 2: Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Stupidity but Were Too Smart to Ask" looks at the track record of human stupidity in all its dumb glory. And "Part 3: How to Destupify" offers tongue-in-cheek advice on how to avoid ending up in a future edition of the book
Sit back, read this book, and enjoy discovering just how much smarter you are than the rest of the fools out there. Consider these examples:
- In the briefly lived sport of water baseball, regulations required that infielders stand in the water up to their necks, the pitcher up to his waist, and the batter up to his thighs.
- A Tampa, Florida man handed a bank teller a note demanding cash. The police had no trouble catching up to the bank robber because he wrote the stick-up note on his own paycheck stub, right below where his name and address were printed.
