What People are Saying

You Can't Fix Stupid! (Or, Can You?)

You Can\'t Fix Stupid! (Or, Can You?) Contrary to what you've heard...
people living in the Middle Ages believed the world to be round, not flat. a mouse has more neck bones than a giraffe. rain does not fall in the shape of a teardrop, but in a circle. the first animal in space was not a monkey, but a dog named Laika. snakes are not charmed by the sound of an instrument but the movement of it. the first invention to break the sound barrier was a whip, not a jet. most sailors and pirates in eighteenth century sea battles did not die from wounds suffered in hand-to-hand combat, but from infected splinters. more tigers live in the United States more than any other country in the world. the driest place on Earth is not in the Sahara Desert but in Antarctica. Surprised that what you thought you knew, or were told, or read, was not the truth? (Google it!) We're swimming in misinformation, misunderstanding, and misdirection. And sometimes you are called to fix the stupidity.
 
Leaders have to do it.
 
Moms and dads, too.
 
Friends have to address it at times.
 
Journalists, teachers, mentors, employers, and pastors deal with the same conundrum in their work.
 
How do you tell people they don't know what they think they know?
 
The answer is easy: With creative wisdom.
 
No one likes to discover they're wrong, misled, or duped....
