2275 Hot Error

It must be climate change. People are either getting crazier or dumber from the heat.

Then again, people have always been pretty crazy. Like it's crazy to expect some people to believe in science in the first place. Science is so upsetting to their beliefs. Take this one group of believers who just got some bad news from the scientific folks.

The sasquatch believers. 

An Oxford university scientist decided to analyze the DNA of 36 hair samples purported to come from yetis and bigfoots. Sadly, the DNA indisputably linked the hair to bears, cows, sheep, and other animals. 

If you ask me, that completely shows how clever bigfoot really is. Purposely leaving behind bear hair to discredit the people who are hot on his tail. Bigfoot probably forged his birth certificate too.

Speaking of wingnuts. One guy is getting even wing-nuttier. Oklahoma Republican Timothy Murray is contesting the results of a primary that he lost to rival Frank Lucas. The basis he is using to contest the results is that according to Murray, "Lucas is no longer alive and has been displaced by a look-alike."

No word why the look-alike would even want to run for office.

Finally, sometimes folks is just plain dumb. Like the vendor at a Pennsylvania gun show. He accidentally shot a woman customer in the leg while he was demonstrating a concealed carry holster. Oops.

I'm not sure about the gun show flea market atmosphere, but at least when I worked retail in the mall it was more or less considered bad form to wound customers. 

Maybe climate change doesn't have anything to do with it after all. Looks like all these stories just go to prove that old adage. 

It's not the heat, it's the stupidity. 

America, ya gotta love it.
