The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity

Via Fark [WARNING! Probably not work safe to visit Fark.] comes The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity.
Cultural trends now fashionable in the West favor an egalitarian approach to life. People like to think of human beings as the out put of a perfectly engineered mass production machine. Geneticists and sociologists especially go out of their way to prove, with an impressive apparatus of scientific data and formulations that all men are naturally equal and if some are more equal that others, this is attributable to nurture and not to nature.

I take an exception to this general view. It is my firm conviction, supported by years of observation and experimentation, that men are not equal, that some are stupid and others are not, and that the difference is determined by nature and not by cultural forces or factors. One is stupid in the same way one is red-haired; one belongs to the stupid set as one belongs to a blood group. A stupid man is born a stupid man by an act of Providence.
It's mildly technical (Hey, it's not for stupid people, OK?) but it comes with some hilarious Robert Crumb-style graphics for the more easily amused.
