It’s safe to assume these people aren’t reading this

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentinelese

Have you heard of these people? They live, virtually isolated from the rest of the world, on North Sentinel Island in the Andaman Islands of India. They resist attempts at contact with people from the “outside” world, have no metal-working ability nor have they mastered fire.

From the late and famous writer and professor, Isaac Asimov:

“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’

If you ask someone on the American right about controlling federal deficits, many will answer, “just cut foreign aid.” When informed that foreign aid represents less than one percent of US federal government spending, many of these people will reply, “That’s a lie. It’s like 25 percent. You must be a part of the conspiracy.”

Ask someone on the American left about the same topic and they’ll just tell you to tax the rich because, “80 percent of America’s wealthy inherited their wealth.” When you tell them that 80% of American millionaires are first-generation millionaires, many of these people will reply, “That’s a lie. You must be wealthy.”

Ignorance is NOT bliss.

OK, what car is this?

From carbuzz.com…the only hint is that it is a concept car.

One thought on “It’s safe to assume these people aren’t reading this

  1. Question: if we are told that making left hand turns is inherently unsafe, why are NASCAR tracks built to make left hand turns?
