You need to get a F'n life. Perfect description of brookhavenconfucius: stupidRead More|ˈst(y)oōpid| adjecti ve ( -pider, -pidest) lacking intelligence or common sense : I was stupid enough to think she was perfect. • dazed and unable to think clearly : apprehension was numbing her brain and making her stupid. • informal used to express exasperation or boredom : she told him to stop messing with his stupid painting. noun informal a stupid person (often used as a term of address) : you're not a coward, stupid! DERIVATIVES stupidity |st(y)oōˈpiditē| noun stupidly adverb ORIGIN mid 16th cent.: from French stupide or Latin stupidus, from stupere ‘be amazed or stunned.’ THE RIGHT WORD If you want to impugn someone's intelligence, the options are almost limitless. You can call the person stupid, a term that implies a sluggish, slow-witted lack of intelligence. Asinine is a harsher word, implying asslike or foolish behavior rather than slow-wittedness (: a woman her age looked asinine in a miniskirt). Calling someone dumb is risky, because it is not only an informal word (: you dumb bunny!), but because it also means mute and is associated with the offensive expression “deaf and dumb,” used to describe people who cannot hear or speak. Dense implies an inability to understand even simple facts or instructions (: too dense to get the joke), while dull suggests a sluggishness of mind unrelieved by any hint of quickness, brightness, or liveliness (: a dull stare). Slow also implies a lack of quickness in comprehension or reaction and is often used as a euphemistic substitute for stupid (: he was a little slow intellectually). Obtuse is a more formal word for slow-wittedness, but with a strong undercurrent of scorn (: it almost seemed as though he were being deliberately obtuse). You can't go wrong with a word like unintelligent, which is probably the most objective term for low mental ability and the least likely to provoke an angry response (: unintelligent answers to the teacher's questions).Because you lack reading comprehension, spelling skills, and you most likely didn't graduate HS. You were probably overlooked for a really good town job, dissed by some politician, or rather, asked JB out on a date and she snubbed you. You don't have a life because you worry too much what everyone else is doing instead of being a happy individual, you spend too much time in front of a computer screen trolling the internet in search of bashing someone or something related to the TOB. I have my own bones to pick with JB, just waiting for the right moment. You on the other hand, are all hot, stinking, bad breath.

I'm not too sure about fire "not discriminating". Go to Read Morehttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/p mc/articles/PMC2848265/ and read "Heightened Risk of Fire Deaths Among Older African Americans and Native Americans". According to that study, fire seems a bit racist to me.

Nothing but education and enlightening the minds of the people will help reduce it to is lowestRead Moreleve l possible. And that goes for all "evils". DWI/DUI is not going away. We have reached what many professionals believe to be an absolute possible bottom we can under enforcement without turning America into a overbearing Nazi type state. The stats will rise and fall closely around the levels they are at now. Make sure you know the real stats and not what you hear on the news or some group that relies on donations or taxes. The stupidity (and I don't mean just stupid people) that DWI / DUI is will be around for a very long time - perhaps even dare I say forever. You need to understand there are and will be always, people who just don't get it - that that behavior is rather high risk and shows complete lack of responsibly for your fellow man. Even relatively good and intelligent people can fall victim to this. One enforcement issue I do take issue with is being able to plead down driving infractions (even DWI/DUI). If you are speeding and should be given 4 points and a $500 fine that should not be turned into 0 points and a $250 parking ticket. If anyone ever recorded the on-goings in Traffic Court in Suffolk and Nassau most people would be incensed. It's a nice place to work because everyone is happy. County getting rich and people getting off light (for the most part). I don't believe a guy who cuts across lanes of traffic dangerously on the LIE should plead down to Jay Walking Summons of $180. Anyway back to you... You live in a world of risk and reward. The problem you are suffering over is not DWI. You must dig deep into your heart and come to terms that. Seek to reduce danger to reasonable levels, but not to the point of crossing over a line that impinges on freedom. We are doing fine in the area of DWI and just need to remain diligent. The kids today who have normal functioning minds for the most part get the message. Go seek out the actual stats for DWI in your area. Even MADD has shifted some of their focus to "underage drinking" and not just DWI at this point as they try to stay relevant. My hat is off to them and the great awareness and lobby job they did on DWI. I will now keep an eye on them as they morph into whatever they are becoming next as they now - as a group - become more about survival of their group then what their group actually was originally about.
