This is a question Clients Are Stupid

I once had to train a client on how to use their new website. I said, "point the mouse at that button." They looked at me with a quizzical expression, picked up the mouse and held it to the screen. Can you beat this bit of client stupidity?

Now I know this sounds absurd in the extreme, but trust me...
It's decent material. Very reliable source.
Anyway, a girl in my sources gymnasium class (I don't know what they call these schools in England or the US or whatever - suffice to say that both source and idiot were 18 years of age at the time) was really stupid. You know the type, but then again, maybe you haven't stumbled across a case quite as fascinating as this one - she though Nelson Mandela was a country. And it gets worse...
In biology (fairly high level) the class and teacher were discussing doping of athletes, and the negative effects this could have on the body. The girl (in all seriousness) actually suggested, and very correctly I might add, that you remove the athletes' kidney - that way they wouldn't be able to dope themselves! It's true, I'll give her that much - but why not just go straight for the heart?
