For the many out there that are stupid, do they know they are stupid?
In no way am I saying that I am not stupid, but I know I am relatively intelligent compared to society in general.
A year ago my kidneys failed and I almost died. It was because of some dumb sh*t I did, and just in case you did not know, the health of your kidneys directly effects your brain function. I remember trying to talk to people, and I kept saying “um” and “like” in EVERY sentence I tried putting together. When I was real close to death, I did not know my first name, but could name the last seven presidents, which the doctors thought was funny.
Throughout all of it, I could not put together a complete sentence without pausing until my kidneys were at least at about 15% healed, and they were at one point pretty much zero percent – that was the not knowing my name and dying part. And then when they were 50%-100% I was completely normal, or as normal as I am now ha
Some of the people that comment on my Fappy The Anti-Masturbation Dolphin Page, they truly amaze me. For example, the image below.
So, “God” starts off talking about homosexuality, which Fappy The Dolphin always talks sh*t on or calls “homogay”, and in this Fappy does not even acknowledge it, and that is the joke. This guy commenting is aware that Fappy is a joke and is not real. He is not completely stupid, but his thought process is obviously slowed.
When my kidneys failed, I could tell I was stupid. I kept apologizing to the doctors, telling them that I am not normally like this. I knew I was stupid.
So I wonder, do people know they are stupid? I would really like to know. If so, what would that be like going through life “knowing” that you are stupid? I could not handle it. When that kidney situation was happening to me, if I knew I was going to be “stupid” the rest of my life that would be an easy decision of a bullet through the brain. There is NO WAY I could deal with that 24 hours a day for the rest of my life.
45 minutes later….
I talked with my friend Andy Steinberg about this; he made me look at this from a different angle, and I think he’s right.
With me, and my kidney failure, a bar had been set.
I had previously known what it was like to not be stupid.
A stupid person has always been stupid, so why would they know the difference?
Steinberg said that most stroke victims are aware that they are functioning on a slower level.
So, I’m not sure what the correct answer is but it is interesting to think about.
