Yes I know, everyone assumed I would be bashing other members about dumb things they put on ATS.

But I dont need to that, because I have plenty of dumb material from just myself.

Now there is a lot of dumb stuff I have said that I cant even remember. But I am sure people would have no problem pointing it out.

However, here is my awards from 6 stupid things that I have done on ATS that I can think of off the top of my head.

6. Lets pick one from today.

Here is the thread.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

While I didnt technically say anything incorrect in the OP I must admit I posted the story thinking that illegals did not count to how many seats a state got in the house of representatives. I was dead wrong, as member introvert pointed out, and in fact the number that counts is all members of a population, not just citizens.

Pretty dumb of me.

5. I cant find the thread, but in a discussion with antedilluvian the other day I quoted part of the justification for 1967 immigration act, particularly Ted Kennedy. He kindly pointed out to me that the cite that I got the quote from was basically a white supremacist site I had never heard of. For the record the quote was accurate by Kennedy and I found it elsewhere, but pretty bad form from me linking to some dirtbags.

4. So I started a thread about democratic politicians blaming a radio station that didnt even exist at the time for being a russian front influencing the election.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Only one problem, the station did actually exist. oof!!

3. This thread.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Now I stand behind everything that I said, thats not whats dumb. The dumb part is that to make that thread, I watched livestreams of the Boston free speech rally for about 7 HOURS!! What a loser I am! I could have walked in the park, went fishing, read a book. But nope, I watched 7 hours of morons and made a thread on it.

2. Well I have been recently making a fool of myself attempting to rap.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Nothing like a fat white guy making a fool of himself trying to rap.

1. And far and away, the number one example of my stupidity on ATS.

It can be seen on every single thread I post on.

Typos.

I am the worst. Not only am I a poor speller, but my fat finger cant type on my phone for crap, and the auto correct constantly screws me over.

And then on my computer, I type using the dreaded one finger method while looking at the keyboard, causing typos at a rate of about every other word.

It is ridiculous, and I know it makes me look like an ass.



Thanks for everyone for reading my awards thread.

Feel free to remind me of the litany of other dumb things I have done on here. *










*supporting trump is not stupid

We are all infallible. That is what makes us interesting though.

Only thing I noticed are the 'fat fingers'. I actually thought you may have had a few.

Good for you to out yourself. That takes confidence in who you are and a good dash of humility.

If you would simply prose your threads in rap battle format, you could save some face.......

Hey if you cant make fun of yourself, you shouldnt make fun of others,

Luckily I have a lot of material for both.

I don't know about the typos.

I constantly go back over my posts and find out that I somehow typed words I didn't think I typed, not just single letter types ... ENTIRE words.


Makes me feel like I'm going senile early.

I blame all the proofreading and move on.

At least you have a sense of humor and an appreciation of irony; imo, most Conservatives are a sad humorless lot and think Monty Python is stupid. Or at least that's the impression I get from my far right family and the people they associate with.

There are plenty of humor filled conservatives.

As far as Monty Python, one of my favorites. I just got through watching Fawlty towers, also great.

And for your family, better they be far right than far wrong.

My low point is probably this stupid thread. I knew it was stupid when I was making it, and then I made it even worse by commenting in it.
Wish I'd deleted it.

If I read this thread, and showed your avatar to them they would immediately call you a homosexual. Not the word they would use however. Church going Baptist, the lot... Heaven forbid you be a person of color....

Are they right or wrong?

Great idea, and the first thread I’ve S&F’d in an age...


Dumbness provided;
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I actually liked this thread. I thought it was written pretty well from a satirical standpoint, and at the time it didn’t even result in a viscous battle of venom between posters.

But prepare for the DUMB...


When he fails to win the Presidency, I won't rub it in, I promise...
I won't say "I told you so"...


Yeah... I said that.



And then there is this one;
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Another thread I enjoyed, a lot.
And stand by the point that was intended...

But why is it dumb?

Well where is he now?
Not calling in the debts of President Trump that’s for sure...

Officially he is upside down, tied up, and has had his pockets emptied.

The Purge: Election Year.

Poor him.





If you want to read more DUMB from me, I have about 4733 posts that all have some potential dumbassery within.
Take your pick.

I am not sexually interested in men.

But I would say that I am giddy and gay.
