Some people are just too dumb for words:

Before Monday, before the 911 call and police investigation, Pedro Ruiz III, an aspiring YouTube star in rural Minnesota, spent considerable time convincing his girlfriend to shoot a gun at his chest.

There would be a thick encyclopedia book between the barrel and his body, authorities say he told 19-year-old Monalisa Perez. The pages, he reasoned, would stop the bullet.



He thought a book would stop a bullet and make him a YouTube star. Now he’s dead | Toronto Star


She has just been sentenced:

U.S. couple thought a book would stop a bullet and make them YouTube stars. Now she’s in jail for manslaughter and he’s dead | Toronto Star



All this over the desire to be youtube stars. What is it with idiots who are so desperate to become famous?

Wow..a .50 caliber handgun.
You think they would have at least tested it first to see if the book would stop the bullet.

Apparently they did, with a different book. Since it worked with that one (how thick must that book have been???) they tried it with the other book while holding it to his chest because they thought it would make them famous. Idiots.

And they banned lawn darts, Kinder eggs, and swings as being too dangerous.

There are enough fools attempting to be Youtube stars out there to provide many more seasons of Tosh.0 and Fail Army.

Saw this story in the star the other day.

What I don't understand is how neither of them thought to maybe try shooting a book (without a person in the line of fire) first just to be sure. Like if she was so skeptical that he had to take a week to convince her, then why if fuck did this not come up as an idea to settle whether or not it actually was safe. Because the non-staged integrity of youtube vids is so goddamn high?

Edit: right well everybody beat me to that one. Different book is still bloody idotic. Fuck, at least slip a bit of sheet metal in there ars a safety; something.

When you read the whole story, this just becomes even dumber.

First, family members tried to talk them out of it. Not only were they too stupid to listen, the family members were too stupid to intervene (either personally or by calling the authorities). Second, there are comments from neighbors who watched it happen. Not one of them had enough brain cells to intervene either.

What the hell is in the water in that town that has made them all so unbelievably stupid??????

Just one more little reason that explains the outcome of the last US Presidential Election...
