The Stupidity of a Nation: The Tale of A Never Ending Civil War

By Tersoo Achineku
There are two things that are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. From my past experiences I have learnt the hard way to stop using the sentence; How Stupid Can You Get? As it seems to elicit a silent reply; Challenge Accepted. Human stupidity these days have aggravated to frightening scales ranging from uploading a sex tape (Hail Kardashian!) to deciding to run for another term despite having the worst administration in Nigerian history or even eliminating a terrorist organization during a six week election postponement period after battling in vain for 5 years or my personal favorite, publicly wishing death upon a presidential candidate then immediately congratulating them upon their victory, EPIC STUPIDITY! But all these pale in comparison to inciting Yorubas against Ibos with a lecherous and unwarranted statement. With all due respect people, stupidity doesn’t define this, no, we need a new word, FOOLISHITY.
