Clocks measure time, thermometers measure temperature, scales measure weight etc. There needs to be a measure for stupidity. Like its pretty stupid to try heroin. Its well known that all heroin users develop terrible problems. Smoking nicotine from cigarettes is a guaranteed addition that is stupid. When I began I stole a cigarette from my Mom's pack and went into the woods to smoke it. I had no idea that I could get addicted at that time. Cigarettes were considered cool and were smoked by Hollywood actors. There is some behavior that is worse than stupid. We need to draw a line to know when the worse than stupid line is crossed. Americans tolerate overwhelming stupidity especially by the privileged. See: Screwed Again: BONUSES FOR BANKERS We need to know where the worse than stupid line is.
