On Einstein's Theory of Human Stupidity

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."
Albert Einstein
I made the mistake of scrolling through my social media feeds this morning. Somehow, Einstein's words seem especially appropriate as I wish I could un-read what I've already read.

I'm guessing human stupidity was around long before Twitter (10 years-old tomorrow) and Facebook and their ilk came along. But it seems like it's so much more visible today as a result. Bummer that.
