There's probably tons of FZ quotes that deal with stupidity. I like this one:<br><br>Some scientists say that the major building block of the universe is hydrogen because it's the most plentiful element, but my theory is that the universe is made out of stupidity because it is more plentiful than hydrogen.<br><br>And as a comment, I also like this Albert Einstein quote:<br><br>Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe.<br><br>

The chief consultant of the California Legislature's Senate Revenue and Taxation Committee is retiring after 43 years. If you think the tax code is loaded with handouts for special interests, I can assure you that there would be a helluva lot more if this guy hadn't been there for 43 years.

He used this quote at his retirement party yesterday.

vcf

Edit: He also used a non-FZ one that was pretty funny:

People who lived in the Golden Age probably complained about how yellow everything was.

Stupidity is fun.

I'm stupid.

I'm happy.

It's fun being stupid.

Ford was on the Warren Commission. In fact, I do believe he is the sole remaining member of that work. Did you know, speaking of Ford bein dumb, that previous to being a Congressman from Michigan[right?], that Ford also previously had been an FBI agent and had gotten a reputation within the bureau as a trustworthy [read: Bureau Loyal] frontman . . .
I learned that from that J Edgar Hoover: The Man and His Secrets bio, by Curt Gentry . . . also very interestinf for much else . . .
Of course everyone remembers Chevy Chase, Maryland, I mean <cough> the SNL skits in the mid '70's :wink:
:wink:

A few quotes from the FZ documentary "Ein Leben Als Extravaganza", which can be seen on youtube.com:

“I think that being cynical is a positive value. I think that nobody should trust anybody else. I think that all people are assholes until proven different, and I think that if you take that point of view, you’ll be dissapointed less in life.â€￾ - FZ

“I think that life itself is so absurd, because the human species was a mistake, I´m convinced of it. That if there is a God, he really fucked up when he made people. Because there’s only one thing that human beings can do, and that’s kill. They do that exclusively well, and better than any other species. They like to make a mess, they like to kill, they like to make trouble. That´s why the species will eventually just obliterate itself, and the World will be safe once again for cockroaches and moss.â€￾ -FZ

“Being honest is… very out of fashion. Nobody wants to do that anymore. ‘Cause it’s easyer to lie and to chisel on the side, and you’ll go farther faster if you’re a fake person.â€￾ -FZ

(I´m not sure that "exclusively" is the right word there in the second quote. If you´re a native English speaking person, it would be nice if somebody would correct me... The last two quotes can be heard in this segment of the program: Frank Zappa Documentary Part 4 of 6)
