Bozone n.: The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The Bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.
Readers of Musings by Us never have to worry about being stuck in the Bozone, because light travels faster than sound. This is why some people some people appear bright until they speak. Therefore these falsely bright people are stuck in the Bozone.
One man who was far from the Bozone as it gets, Albert Einstein, said “Only two things in the universe are infinite. Hydrogen and human stupidity.” His words are still very true, and you can see the proof of that every day from various news media and outlets across the globe.
Sometimes there is only one person trapped in his or her own Bozone, many times a huge Bozone can be created when many of these individual Bozones merge, like at Tea Party meetings or at rallys for the Westboro Baptist Church. No bright ideas can penetrate a Bozone of this magnitude, for the sheer force of the stupidity within is too great. Maybe stupidity is infinite, but for those of us outside the Bozone, we can take comfort in the fact that it just might be contained.
