The Average Person Is Pretty Dumb, And Most People Are Dumber Than That.
Remember this saying, you can use it to sound witty.

But there is a lot of truth in this. The average person is pretty dumb, aren't they? And we all think most people are dumber than that don't we?

Being here at GLP for an extended period of time. Maybe you spent years elsewhere gathering all your knowledge and truths. So by the time you have to interact with the average consumer type, anything they have to say is going to either a) piss you off, or b) bore you to death, and finally c) want to make you strangle them to death for how dumb they are.

I can give you guys a simple solution to this problem and just tell you to ignore them and don't engage in conversation. Of course most likely you will come across as a loner, or a dousche bag who thinks they are better than everyone, so people will naturally hate you, because you avoid all social events, people, places, etc.

So what can you do? How do you interact with these Idiocracy Gatorade drinking types on a daily basis without losing your shit?

When you're living in the Zombie Apocalypse somebodies gotta take charge. Guess what, since you're awake that's gotta be you. Afraid to say, but you gotta get off your ass and lead these morans in the right direction.

You have 2 options, you can help lead and build up those around you, like your friends and family so that you all can achieve success together. Or the secondary option is to sit in a corner pouting and let them run around like a chicken with their heads cut off.

I personally choose leading these brianless morans in the direction I know will be best for them.

Don't try to talk conspiracies with these types of people, or anything of substances. You must go down to their level and talk about nonsense. Shopping, sports, consuming, eating junk food, watching television shows, if you want to communicate them in anyway that they won't space out after five seconds.

If you try to get all intellectual with them, yes they will slowly start to fade till you've lost them forever.

Try your best not to go into deeper conversations of the sciences, or politics, but instead choose topics around "idealism" where they can be broad and magical. These topics usually invigorate something deep inside the person, that makes them feel like Peter Pan wanting to go on an adventure.

The moment you start acting all high and mighty around these people with your "truths" and "knowledge" is the second you lose them forever. You need to always be an equal with those around you, usually this requires dumbing yourself down greatly.

There's three steps in persuading someone of your idea or course of action.

1) The Rider
2) The Elephant
3) Clearly Defined path


The Rider is someone's logical side, you must convince someone logical if you want to get them on board with your plans or ideas.

The elephant is someone's emotional side, appeal to them emotionally for true convincing.

Finally with their "logical" & "emotional" side on board you need to give them a clearly defined path.

So lets say you're trying to convince your girlfriend to lose some weight. Well you don't just goto her and say hey your fat you need to lose some weight.

No, maybe you say hey hunny, I got a free months membership to the gym (The Rider) and its coming up on winter and I think we should take up this offer while it last, since you know we both will be snuggling all winter long.

And finally for the clearly define path, you may say something like, we both have these 2 days off so we should go at 2 pm on these days and I will pick you up, etc.

Do you guys get it now?

If you really want to convince someone of something use that method and that method only. If you want to communicate with a Zombie you must go down to their brianless ways. No one is going to take charge in the Apocalypse, its up to you to do that, just so you know.

Get up off your ass and take charge people! You got all the tools you need to do it!

Speaking of tools...
There is nothing quite as compelling as a bad idea whose time has come...

That statement is EXTREMELY DUMB as it is self-cntradictory.

It is, by definition, impossible to have more that half the population more dumb than average or it would not be the average.

EXACTLY HALF the population must be more dumb than average, not one person more nor one person less.

DUH!
