Ever had someone you know think that DUMBEST thing ever is correct?

I was at work today, and I walked up to a couple of high school guys two or three years younger than me who work with me, and I don't remember why, but they were talking about weed/drugs (it's important to note that neither they nor I ever said "marijuana" untill I write it here), and I asked them what they were talking about, and they said something I don't remember, but then they told me that weed is a "memory loss drug" and that smoking it makes you get high (like it does), but then that when you come back down, your brain was affected by the weed so that you cannot even recall getting high. I of course knew that they had absolutely no idea what they were talking about, so I said so. They then began accusing me of being a pothead (which happens all the time, I'm not, but I'm used to people thinking I am) and when I retallliated with saying "I've never smoked weed in my life."

They (and I wish I could say they were just being dumb to mess with me; they are really this dumb) then said that if I did smoke weed, then I wouldn't remember it because it's a "memory loss drug." I said word for word "Have you ever even met someone who smoked marijuana? I can guarantee that that is not what happens."

They said, "Well of course MARIJUANA doesn't do that, we're talking about WEED."

My jaw dropped and I just turned around and walked away.

What about you guys? Anything like this?

My friends are convinced that your eyeballs fall out of your skull if you sneeze without blinking.


No one really knows what happens because it's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. It's part of the reflex of sneezing, it's used to help keep things out of your body.

I had a friend tell me once that homosexuality was a mental disease/disorder that only developed within the last century in western civilization.

This guy was upset because he was in psychology class and they were talking about homosexuality. He stood up in front of the class and spewed this bull**** out and could not understand why everyone was laughing their asses off at him.

This was such an ignorant statement to make that I was actually mad at him. I told him that if I had been there I would have fallen out of my chair laughing at him because it was the stupidest thing he had ever heard. He seemed a little butthurt, but I am like 3 years older than him so he had to accept my wisdom in pouting silence.

I had someone hold both of my eyelids apart whilst I sneezed. I can assure you I still have both eyes.

My brother when he was in college in NH, assured me and my dad that St. Anselm's was "...applying for Ivy League status...". I wish I was joking
They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

So, even if you do something very drastic to keep them open, let's say (although this is kinda morbid) I don't know, stapling them open or something freaky like that. They would still close?

I'm pretty sure I saw a mythbusters where they taped the guy's eyes open while he sneezed and nothing happened.

Dwight: That's ridiculous, of course it wasn't me.
Jim: Marijuana is a memory loss drug, so maybe you just don't remember.
Dwight: I would remember.
Jim: Well, how could you, if it just erased your memory?
Dwight: That's not how it works.
Jim: Now how do you know how it works?
Dwight: Knock it off, okay, I'm interviewing you.
Jim: No! You said that I'd be conducting the interview when I walked in here. Now exactly how much pot did you smoke?

You mean it doesn't? I had a loopy teacher who told me a story about that when I was maybe 12. She said a kid didn't believe her and did it in front of a mirror which cut up his eyes when they flew out.

I feel like an arse now.

A few acquaintances of mine in language class were discussing homosexuality, and the one came out with this:
"Lesbians must still like men because they use dildos, right? It means they're attracted to men with bits, so why don't they get a boyfriend?"

That's a pretty common understanding actually. Quite a few people believe it never happened. If this is the stupidest thing you've ever heard, you must live in a pretty smart area.

i had a teacher who said if a tree falls in the middle of nowhere, and no one is around to hear it, it wouldnt make a sound. we had an argument on that for about 20 minutes.

me: 'so, if a tree falls and your beside it, its very loud right?'
her: 'yes, it is very loud'
me: so if no one is around, and a tree falls, it knows that no one will hear it, therefore making the choice to not make the effort of making a sound.
her: yes
me: how did you make it through college
her: well what does that have to do with anything
me:nevermind

That's not entirely false. One could argue that the child could pick up homosexual behaviour from the parents though classical conditioning.

Biologically its false of course.

In Philosophy we call this a "false syllogism", in that by deduction it comes to a false conclusion which it is difficult to disprove.

Quote by Dinkydaisy

lol I doubt it. But of course that is why I said it was biologically false, in that if homosexuality has biological origins (which many people believe) then the conditioning would make little or no difference.

But that homosexual behaviour could be picked up at least as a façade or simply as a way of speaking or walking etc. though classical conditioning is completely true, it would depend highly on the age at which the child was adopted and how they reacted to that.

I have friends who thought and still think that Bush is a good president.
They also believe that John McCain is smart and the Obama knows nothing about economics.

Other friends hate rock cause they claim that you can never understand what they're saying. They meant rock, not metal.

that's actually semi-correct, but it's a technicallity. Sounds arewhat our ears reconfigure certian frequencies of vibrations as. "Sounds" made then, with ABSOLUTELY no one to hear it only make a vibration, not sound, as there are no ears to translate the vibrations produced by the tree into true "sound." Like I said, it's a technicallity, so it's half correct, but for all sakes and purposes, yes it does make a sound.
