Fun Facts Not Even Non-Idiots Would Know #1

     In this series I look at some random facts that even non-idiots wouldn't know.

     #1: Mexico has more World Cup appearances than England and France.  Which also means they've had more appearances than the US and Canada combined.

     #2: Nigeria is the seventh most populous nation in the world.  Then again, never thought much about the topic other than "China, India and Russia has a lot of people."

     #3: Former Yankees pitcher A. J. Burnett once had a clause in his contract with Toronto (his previous team) which requires eight round trips on a limo per year for his wife.  She's afraid of flying, but she wants to see him play in person.

    Bonus: It's not easy writing about idiotic things after feeling bad because you've done those yourself once upon a time.

Idiots I Hear About #1

     Another series about idiotic and moronic experiences other people have experienced and shared with me.
     Idiot #1: Told his friend (who also happens to be a friend of mine) about a plan to fabricate a non-existent life for a totally imaginary baseball player named Jack Glasscock, after getting "inspired" by Dick Stone.  Problem? He didn't know that there actually was someone named Jack Glasscock in the majors.  Can't say I blame him for not knowing.  I mean, Glasscock? I feel sorry for his family's descendants.
     Idiot #2:  To celebrate Chinese New Year, the kind man holds a dinner for his employees.  I doubt that he has a career in the field of World History, because he chose a Japanese restaurant.  Last time I heard, it wasn't free, so umm... yeah...
"Don't complain about free stuff" doesn't apply here.

Idiots Around Me, #1

     For the first post on the blog (not like it matters), I'd like to talk about the inspiration for this blog.  Stupid idiots around me.  Thank you, you idiots.  Sure, you guys aren't necessarily stupid most of the time, but some things you do, is just too damn idiotic.  You really brighten my day with your idiocy and unconventional antics.  You give me the inspiration to embarrass myself online by writing in my own stupid style, grammatical errors and weird usage of certain phrases.  Cheers.
     Idiot #1: Spending triple digit on a game that no one else plays, just because "it looks nice."  Pretty sure there's such things called Google Images, Photobucket, deviant art, etc.  Also, what is the point of the game if it's a multi-player game and no one else around you plays it? It's like downloading a MMORPG then try to play it without any internet connection.  It's not my money, but even burning it for warmth is less of a waste, considering the weather right now.
     Idiot #2: Cannot spell Christmas.  When you're over the age of 10 (or in this case, over by a large margin), and you spent at least five years in an English speaking country (again, actual number is much higher), you should know how to spell Christmas.  There are many people who can't spell much shorter words, but I honestly cannot think of any word that is more common and also spelled wrong regularly by someone I know.  The images of misspelled "Merry Christmas" on holiday gifts make me chuckle.  The thought of "Mary Christmas" makes me want to watch Dumb and Dumber again.
     Idiot #3: Thinks potato is a fruit.  No wonder my parents always told me to "Eat your vegetables!" when I'm trying to enjoy some french fries.

More of their idiocy to come in the future.  I don't recall any more at the moment, but that's more due to the fact that I'm getting drowsy.  However, they're definitely going to do something stupid in the near future.  And I'll be waiting.
