This is a question Stories of unsurpassed brilliance

This "Week" The suggestion comes from Kroney who muses

"Whilst I was passing through Miami airport at the tender age of 21, I fancied a beer. "ID" said the charming Southerner behind the desk, so I got out my passport and showed it to her.

"You have to be 21," she said. Now this confused me slightly as I had been 21 for several months by this point and my date of birth was staring her in my face.

"I am 21," I replied helpfully "it says so there, look"

"You have to be 21", she said getting angry.

Cut a long story short, I argued, the manager came out, I argued with him before I finally realised that they weren't looking at the date of birth at all. They were looking at the date of *issue*

That would have made me an annoyingly precocious four year old. What examples of unsurpassed mental genius have you experienced?"""""""

Gas and electricity do not mix, possible repost.
A friend who worked for the gas board told me this story.
Got called out after getting a report of an explosion at a house.
When he got there , the remains of the front door was in the garden, alongside the completely burnt out remains of a vacuum cleaner smouldering away.
Transpires, the lady of the house was hoovering the floor when a mouse ran out and was sucked up into the machine, she was worried iy was suffering inside all mangled up and decided to help put it out of its misery.
She got a canister of camping gas and emptied it into the hoover bag.
Waited a while to make sure it was probably gassed dead then switched the machine back on to continue vacuuming.
