An Idiot’s Guide to Smart People and Money

Feb 28, 2015 By Abraham 0

For much of pre-history, human idiots held all the power. Then along came money, giving smart people the upper hand.

Now idiots need to try to understand how smart people are controlling them and their wealth.

Or maybe they don’t need to try to understand. Yeah, forget it. Just carry on.

Most parents have dreams for their children to be successful. To be happy. To be independent.

For parents of children with autism, they fear that this dream is out of reach. This is a story about a father just like so many out there who was having trouble imagining what the future would hold for his autistic son.

I don’t want him to sit in a room and have people have to take care of him. I want him to have a life.

Winter Is Making People Crazy in Boston. But This Guy Has a Solution…

Even though babies are adept at looking like they want to kill you, it’s fairly safe to assume that they don’t actually want to. They have a fairly limited set of desires and destroying other people isn’t generally considered by professionals to be among them.

Of course this doesn’t mean that they’re full of kindness and beneficence, either. They don’t want to hurt anybody, but they’re not particularly empathetic either.

Not everyone seems to be aware of this blance, however, as is evidenced by a note that was recently sent home from day care along with 9-month-old Baby Samantha. It’s nothing short of absurd…

Note from Daycare

Via: Babble

Samantha has been playing roughly and aggressively with the other babies; they will be crying and upset but she is smiling and enjoying herself — even our using firm voices to tell her it’s not OK to hurt her friends and remove her from area, she is smiling and going right back. Can you help us out by maybe discouraging her to not play roughly with her friends and her dog.

Thanks

What?! A baby who doesn’t notice that other babies are crying and who just wants to laugh and play?

Shocking, I know.
