Though invisible, the Singularity of Stupid manifests itself by appearing as a “Dumb Asshole.” Both are dependent on a Catastrophic Intellectual Collapse (CIC) which creates the Singularity of Stupid.
Whenever such persons are found, it is no surprise that it is usually the police who stumble across them. Such an event has been documented in this Fox News item:
Houston, we've found a hole.
PATRICK, Nev. — An Oregon rugby player remains in jail Tuesday after being arrested on charges he left his 2-year-old daughter in a vehicle in the parking lot of a Nevada brothel on a 95-degree day.
Lucien Hoffman, of Bend, Ore., is being held in the Storey County Detention Center in lieu of $40,000 bail on charges of child neglect.
Police arrested Hoffman early Sunday night at the World Famous Mustang Ranch brothel in Sparks, Nev., after a security guard found the child crying inside the car, according to Storey County Sheriff's Det./Sgt. Kenneth Quirk.
Hoffman, a wing for Bend Rugby who goes by the nicknames Luke and "Torpedo," had been attending a pool party and barbecue at the brothel, a co-sponsor of a Labor Day weekend rugby tournament in Reno organized by the Reno Zephyrs Rugby Club.
This Dumb Asshole left his two year old daughter all alone for hours in a four door oven on wheels. Fortunately the whorehouse security guard heard the child crying and investigated. He contacted the sheriff's office and took the child inside the brothel for shelter. No question, this idiot needs a Cosmic Catharsis in the form of a blue enema to wake him up.
"It was 95 degrees out at that time of day, and you have to figure another 30 degrees on top of that inside a vehicle even with the windows down," Quirk said.
After Hoffman's arrest, the toddler was treated for dehydration and released to the Nevada Division of Child and Family Services. She was returned to her mother in Bend, Ore.I don't know any rugby players; I hope it has nothing to do with the sport, but listen to what the president of the rugby club, Matt Burke, has to say about charbroiling toddlers:
Burke called Hoffman a good father who made a bad decision.Yeah, he forgot to marinate the kid.
Oh really? From Dictionary.com:
"We know Luke to be a good father," he said. "He's not a neglectful person or an irresponsible parent. It's unfortunate that he made the decision that he did to put here in the car, but I'm sure the decision wasn't arrived at in a neglectful manner or that he was intentionally being neglectful."
1. to pay no attention or too little attention to;
2. to be remiss in the care or treatment of;
3. to omit, through indifference or carelessness;
4. to fail to carry out or perform (orders, duties, etc.);
5. to fail to take or use;
6. an act or instance of neglecting; disregard; negligence;
7. the fact or state of being neglected.
So what part of Hoffman's actions were not neglectful? Seems like Burke is rapidy approaching his own Singularity.
