This is why we need to implement Eugenics again. I've already made my opinion clear on the practice in previous threads, but I'll sum it up in a few terse words:

STUPID PEOPLE GET FIXED

And by fixed, I mean like our pal, Fido. Some people, however, deserve little more than a hot chunk of lead delivered to the brain, courtesy of the Smith & Wesson Express.

This isn't a issue of some one being dumb it's a issue of them being a morally bankrupt waste of a human being, eugenics can't fix that.

If there was ever a sign that Natural Selection has gone down the shitter, this would be it.

Explain that, please.

The wiser thing she should have done is rent her child out for labor. Easily make more money that way.

You know, on its own merits, I find social media like Facebook to be utterly worthless. But given the propensity of idiots to hang themselves by their own petards while using it... I'm slowly warming up to it!

I have only one thing to say...
Dipshit!...oh wait, sorry, I meant to say, dipshits!

Nothing was wrong 'cause it was in the open? So if i want to murder someone then all i have to do is take them to the town square and shank 'em and everything's A-ok?

Eleima:
As an expectant mother, I don't condemn this woman, I pity her. She doesn't deserve our scorn, she needs HELP, and a lot of it. There are a lot of reasons why a mother can be put in a position to abandon her child at birth, but here?... *shakes head* This story is wrong on so many levels, I wouldn't know where to start.

Congrats!

I agree that she needs some serious help, I wonder if the rest of her kids are fine...

Cosidering stupidity isn't 100% hard-coded into people's genes (and even if it were, it'd be costly to gene-check everyone to make sure their genes don't make them too stupid for breeding), suggesting that sterilizing "stupid" people will decrease stupidity makes no sense. Unless you're also taking environment into account, in which case your logic still makes no sense, seeing as the cure for that is called "education," and it would be more worth everyone's while to improve education rather than go through the costly process of sterilizing people who don't have access to good education and dealing with a significantly smaller population year after year (which has another set of economic repercussions).

Also, what would the cut-off for stupidity be, exactly? Will you be eligible for sterilization for suggesting a course of action that makes little sense economically, scientifically, or socially?

Well that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever...

...oh.

Why not do abortion though? oh right, its america.

Oh, and let's not forget all the moron looters in Britain from earlier this year.

Britain and England are not the same thing. I didn't hear any reports of riots in Scotland or Wales. I'm getting kind of sick of people unable to make the distinction between Britain and England. Almost as bad as the people who think the UK and Britain are exactly the same.

On topic, yeah. Stupid thing to do. Sounds like the kid would have been better off with the other guy rather than the drug addicted mother, though.

Well since England takes up a major part of Britain it's technically correct to use Britain instead of England (is something happened in England it logically happened in Britain). It's wrong the other way around. I do know some people that think England = UK and that is plain ignorance though. And anyway my country is still largely know as a part of USSR or in better case as Czechoslovakia in the US, so you should be glad for such small issues.

On topic:
Well it'd definitely nice to see natural selection still getting its kicks out of mankind. Too bad the price for utter stupidity is no longer death. Hmm... Death sentence for anyone with IQ <70?

Anyone else notice the baby was born addicted to opiates, how the hell did that happen? How the hell did she know?

Why is it only the worst people seem to breed the most?

That was my face when I finished reading the article. Damn...people are dumb.

Exactly. Someone bring me my +5 ring of backhanding. There are dumbasses about.

TheDarkEricDraven:
Gee. What could a 54 year old man want buying an infant?

..No, wait, please don't answer that.

As for the woman, she is both a horrible person AND an idiot.

What, you haven't seen A Serbian Film?

I'd feel insulted to be sold by someone so incredibly stupid.

madster11:
The number of people who randomly judge the guy based on nothing but the fact that he's old and a guy is simply stupid.

Maybe he never had kids, and wants one before he dies, couldn't find a girl or is sterile and the adoption program won't let him in (single old father =/= stable perfect family)?
Thus, he helps out a single mother by giving her some money and more or less adopting the kid.

Sure, the mother is a retard who talks about it on facebook and wastes the money at the casino, but there's no reason to suspect the guy of anything.

Sex Offender? CP on his computer? Had children in the past?
Aight, be suspicious. But otherwise, stop assuming the worst of humanity. To do that, go read some youtube comments.

Why? I can just read the Escapist's comments. While I'm doing that, why don't you go read the original post?

So Facebook serves a useful function afteral.

Hasn't she ever heard of Craig's List? I know they cleaned it up a bit recently, but I have a feeling someone could find a shady "baby selling" link to click on if they searched through it enough.

This would be a point for forced sterilization until such time as a person has proven him/herself fit to be a parent. Drug addicts, no... addicted to opiates essentially means she's a heroine addict, doesn't it? But, if the economy is so tough right now, why not just commoditize everything? "Sure, I'll be your friend, but I have a $5 an hour going rate." We pay for everything else, why not just logically extend it?

planning a terrorist attack!!!! lol!!!!

Seriously, who could be so stupid as to announce that?

Well in simplest terms, if Natural Selection were working properly this level of stupidity would have been bred out of the gene pool.

Facebook! Outing stupid criminals since....whenever!

Yahztee said it himself, Natural Selection has been abolished.

Facebook? What the fuck is wrong with that sadistic bitch!? Everybody knows Craigslist is the best place to sell your kids. God, what a dumb fuck. What a fucked up world we live in when people try to sell their kids on social networking sites and not the actual sites created for that exact purpose.

All faith in humanity: Lost.

Bit too extreme maybe...
I know!
Just don't treat them.
If they're stupid enough to make these mistakes, make them live (or not) with the consequences.

If someone gets themselves fat, they do not have the right to have a gastric band put in coming from the NHS.
They will just have to be fat until they fix it or die of obesity.

OP: This is fucking ridiculous, and is it just my fancy or are they saying that they may give the baby back?

How could she say 'This is wrong?', OF COURSE IT IS WRONG!
Boggles the mind...

Are abortions prohibited in the USA? I'm genuinely curious.

Ariyura:

Yes the system is messed up, but no one really knows who this man is.

No, we don't know who this man is. That's not the same as no one. He could be a well respected member of the community for all we know. I'd doubt it given the context, but that's my point, judging whether selling the child to that man is good or bad depends on things we don't know.

Astoria:

I agree but it says the child was already an addict when born so it's logical to assume he's not a good choice for father. Also, putting on facebook and not seeing anything wrong with what she did makes me think she's not all there.

How is that logical? The child would be an addict because the mother was a user, that doesn't say anything about the man. At most, it just supports that the mother might not have been the best person to be making such decisions in the first place, but it doesn't suggest a thing about the man either way.

Ariyura:
She only wanted the money. She says everything was in the open, she didn't do anything wrong. She doesn't think selling her child is wrong?

To be fair I do not think its wrong. She birthed the kid she should be allowed to decide who raises it and if she wants get compensation for letting someone else adopt her kid.

Stupidity is not a genetic condition, it is a choice that is exterior to Natural Selection. Stupidity may lead to the death of an individual whom has made stupid choices, but stupidity itself is simply a byproduct of a lack of education (save, of course, conditions such as mental retardation, but this woman is not mentally retarded in any actual, medical fashion). So please, quit it with the "If Natural Selection was still working..!" spiel. You don't understand much about it if this post is any indicator.

Hmmm, well what I'd find more interesting is the number of people who have gotten away with bragging about crimes and such over Facebook, rather than the ones that have done it and gotten caught. Trends like this start for a reason.

Also the law can be a messed up thing, and depending on the details and the lawyers some of these arrests might not lead to convictions. See, if you can goad the police into arresting you and pursueing a case you know you can beat, even if on a technicality, it makes it much easier to beat other cases by claiming that the police are harassing you on a grudge. Looking at the guy who posted the picture to the Kid's facebook page and such, I don't see much there that is inherantly incriminating, unless the coat is a one of a kind original or something that picture could have been taken anywhere, it's circumstantial, and Facebook is fairly easy to break into and impersonate someone else with as far as such things go. As I said, we'd have to know more about the way these cases have been fought in court before making any desicians on stupidity.

Believe it or not there are fairly petty criminals out there that are more or less untouchable due to the sheer number of arrests they have had without conviction. They can scream police harassment/racism and point to the record and use it as a form of defense, because anything short of an airtight case could get the police sued... and the funny thing about airtight cases, is that in a country (the US) where the requirement is "beyond a reasonable doubt" there is vitually no such thing when someone has a big enough microscope. That "harassment" record becomes the very definition of reasonable doubt.

As far as the lady selling the kid, that's messed up, but the devil is in the details. Definatly illegal and should be, especially given the attitude over facebook, but it's remotely possible she couldn't raise the kid and was trying to find a new home. 15k for a baby isn't surprising given that the mother can't/doesn't want to raise it, it's not a surrogacy arrangement which is a bit differant.

The reason why I think this one needs to be looked into is because I figure the really evil people wanting to sell their kids would have done it internationally. The "usual" method is to take the kid, anything from an infant to a teenager, on a vacation to Asia... Bangkok is a pretty typical location "we're going to see the temples and learn about Thai silk making!", have the kid "abducted" in exchange for money, and then sit there and wallow in the sympathy "oh noes! they took my child" while spending your money and heading home to "greive". Then the organized crime syndicates sell the kid (or just the organs) or
put them to work in the sex trade. It winds up falling under "disapperances" and the blanket warning about how some parts of the world are fairly dangerous.

If she was seedily shopping around to sell a baby for some fast cash, this actually makes me think she was thinking in terms of finding it a home, from someone who couldn't adopt due to his own record (there is always a reason). As opposed to the kid say being chopped up for organs to save the life of some rich guy's baby who is born needing a transplant or whatever.

Somebody please check her brain..........

She is lacking in any traits we'd wish passed on to the next generation though, namely any trace of intelligence.

I would type something funny, but I'm too busy laughing at this woman's stupidity.

Facebook: The new Batman.

That should be their new slogan. Seriously, it's like it forces criminals to admit their crimes and then it gives cops their specific location. It's awesome!

Granted, I actually hate Facebook and I don't have an account, but just because of all the crimes solved thanks to it, I'm glad it's so popular.

My head hurts. It's too much stupidy here.
