The world is, unfortunately, full of idiots. Topical example: the guy in charge of coordinating both professional and volunteer rescue drivers in the south west was just on the radio. People have been warned over and over not to make unnecessary journeys. He told of one couple stranded in a drift because the man wanted to 'show his wife the snow', and another couple who took their four kids, for Christ's sake, out to McDonalds and also got stranded on the way. When mildly rebuked by their rescuers for putting lives at risk, neither of them thought they'd done anything wrong and saw it as 'your job' to rescue them.

The world is full of idiots.

If you genuinely like McDonald’s food, you are an idiot.

It’s gak you turn to when time poor and there is nothing else open. The family who got caught in the snow in pursuit of such s**t food deserve to have the misfortune come their way.

I didn’t say it was on the m62. Just the idiots who drive like that. I’ve been on the roads today, and the amount of people unwilling to drop their speed, or maintain a bigger distance is crazy. Nice to be called an idiot for it though cheers

It's all well and good being an idiot, but are you a useful idiot?

That is the burning question.

I saw stuff on Facebook from Ireland of people with selfie sticks getting as near as they could to the sea to get "that" shot. The sort of people that the Darwin Awards were made for.

My neighbour for clearing the snow from the path outside their property only. It was barely worth the effort.

That bloke on the radio this morning who spent 8 hours in his car overnight but was cheered by the local villagers bringing cups of tea. MATE, IF YOUR’E THAT CLOSE TO A VILLAGE, WHY ARE YOU IN YOUR CAR AND NOT THE PUB?

People who panic buy after one snowflake comes down.
News reporters who stand in a field telling everyone how fuckin cold it is.

People who correct others but also get it wrong, it's in Iowa not Idaho as evidenced by the fact it says it in the corner of the video!!!
