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.

Not my brightest moment...
Visiting a mate's house many, many, many, years ago (I was about 12) I popped into the loo and saw a small plastic cage suspended just under the rim of the bowl.
It was empty.
I'd never seen such a thing before so I asked him what it was for.
"Ah, that's where my sisters put their tampons after they've used them, you flush a couple of times and they rinse out, then dry them on the line and they're good to go again."
I believed him for YEARS until I saw an ad on TV for toilet flush blocks and spanged myself in the head.

*Decades later, I reminded him of this over a beer and he laughed like crazy. "Did I really tell you that? What a bloody brilliant thing to say!"
