“Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.” Carlo Cipolla In the 1970s, an economic historian called Carlo Cipolla wrote a provocative article titled “The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity”. This week’s episode is about his theory of the destructiveness of stupid behaviour and why it is so underestimated and misunderstood. Show Notes: The Basic Laws Of Human Stupidity by Carlo M.

“Paramedics Randy Li and Lorena Concepcion-Martinez debunk 12 myths about first aid. They talk about how to properly perform CPR, different choking protocols, and the best way to clean a wound. They also explain that sleeping after a concussion isn’t dangerous — in fact, the myth comes from the misconception that sleeping after a concussion can lead to a coma.

Concepcion-Martinez has been a paramedic in New York City for the past 19 years.

Li has been a paramedic in New York City for the past 11 years. He also has a YouTube channel called RescueRandy, where he covers all things related to emergency medical services. You can watch his videos here: https://www.youtube.com/c/RescueRandy/

“They’ve been derided as spruced up pyramid schemes: Companies that incentivize their own customers to become salespeople for products. Now, these so-called multilevel marketing businesses are flexing their political muscle. And they’re turning to one lawmaker in particular to protect their agenda: Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.

While a lot of these businesses do stoop into sleazy behaviors…it’s important to keep in mind, that not all are known for being scum bags.

Avon has this sort of thing, too…that’s what “the Avon lady” is all about…Thing is, they expect individual sellers to have a normal pool of just customers…they don’t expect every customer to become another seller.

This sort of thing can be done ethically…Problem is, many of them don’t behave ethically.

“Two former police officers in Oklahoma were convicted of second-degree murder after they used their Tasers on an unarmed man more than 50 times in 2019. The man, Jared Lakey, became unresponsive shortly after and died two days later. Court documents called the officers’ use of stun guns a “substantial factor” in the 28-year-old’s death and prosecutors said the officers deployed them in a “dangerous and unnecessary” way. A jury also found Brandon Dingman, 35, and Joshua Taylor, 27, guilty of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and recommended 10 years in prison for both men. They are due to be sentenced early next month.
