    Yes and how on earth do they get away with it? I've racked my brain, and I'm not a stupid person, but I can't , for the life of me to figure it out.

    It's just bluff. They pretend we're stupider than they are, and we know that isn't right, but still they do it.

    Will we ever understand them? Or maybe more to the point, do we want to?

    I'm sure we don't. I'm glad I'm not like them.

    But it's so much fun when they screw up and you're right there to point it out. 🙂

    You're right, and don't they come up with some great original excuses ...

    I know exactly what you mean. I've often wondered if maybe they aren't faking their stupidity. I read a book when I was a kid, called "The Simpletons." These 3 guys went around acting stupid all the time, until finally at the end of the book, they had conditioned themselves to become literally stupid. I guess the moral to the story was, if you keep telling yourself a lie long enough, you eventually start to believe it.

    Those people. Can't stand 'em. Yet they exist, and for a purpose--of that I'm sure.

    I think they exist so the rest of us have someone to feel superior to / exasperated with / unimpressed by,

    No worries. There's really no place to hide. Eventually, everybody gets found out. Yep, everybody includes the strong; the average;

    the weak; the twofaced; traitors and the craven cowards (who have already caved and died from within, though not yet buried).

    Why can't they settle their differences without getting angry, antsy and nasty?

    They figure if they go on and on about it everyone will give up and leave the field to them.
