The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity -- Michael R. Eades, M.D.Stupid people are everywhere. And, as we all know, no class, race, sex, occupation, political affiliation, country of origin, or degree of wealth has a monopoly on stupidity.

Consequently, we are frequently ambushed by them and pay the often hefty price.

Also, there is a lot to learn on the topic of distilling.

But, at its core, whether conspiracy theories will, as the BBC summarizes, it, eventually destroy democracy.
