This is a question Amazing displays of ignorance

Sandettie Light Vessel Automatic tells us: "My dad's friend told us there's no such thing as gravity - it's just the weight of air holding us down". Tell us of times you've been floored by abject stupidity. "Whenever I read the Daily Express" is not a valid answer.

Fun fun fun on the autobahn...
I was with my new boss (a yank, if it matters) the other week driving back in a hire car from Strasbourg to Munich, when the Hertz rented sat nav crapped out on us for the fith or sixth time. Ironically, the system is named by Hertz as the 'Neverlost' system, which when I saw it for the first time rang alarm bells... I thought 'That's a pretty bold thing to call a sat nav'..

So we missed our exit. My boss kept his foot down oblivious to the fact we could just possibly be hurtling further and further away from our intended destination.

'It's alright' he says. 'I know where we are going I've seen loads of signs for it, we'll pick it up again soon'. Turns out we were headed, at a rate of knots, for the mystical city of 'Ausfahrt'.

I found it particularly difficult to educate my new boss without showing him up that Ausfahrt is German for 'exit ramp'.

Surely it's not only me...
.. who giggles at the name "ausfahrt".

We are, after all, a "puerile" digital arts community. Are we not?
