    Because they're bored. I mean...look at the lamestream media focusing on a particular person's e-mails. They were trying to find something "juicy" to report on, but instead, they wasted hours upon countless hours reading nothing but boring e-mails. *shakes head*.......

    Ignorant, not stupid. There's a difference.

    Calling ignorant things stupid is the internet thing to do. It's just more fun.

    Your thread title is about the parents, right? It's pretty, well, stupid to expect a toddler to be smart.

    Indeed. He's what, two? All he sees is a big kitty he wants to pet.

    Stupid and/or fearless isn't part of the equation.

    I'm confused as to what your asking is fearless or stupid? The kid, the parents, or the news story? :lol 

    If your saying the kid, then this.

    He doesn't know the risk of being near a large predator (if it wasn't behind glass). He just see's a big cat that looks like she's playing.

    The parents aren't stupid for letting him get that close: there is safety glass there... it's a zoo, your supposed to get close.

    I do think the new story is stupid... the world must be calming down or they have a huge crew of rookie news teams and they're in training. :D

    I'm surprised it took 11 posts to get to ignorance.

    And about the news itself. It is called a fluff piece. You can't post 100% bad news and there obviously isn't any BIG good news to report.

    The real question is...
    The people who called the toddler stupid, are they ignorant or stupid?

    Maybe I just want to call some random strangers' baby stupid? That's not stupid in itself, it just makes me an asshole.
