WorldWide Drilling Resource

34 FEBRUARY 2021 WorldWide Drilling Resource® The “Idiots” Corner by “Billy Bob Smith” Well, we are two months into a new year and looking back on 2020 with some wisdom and insight. How can we make the new year better despite the dumb stuff a lot of people did and said last year, and may still be saying now? I’m sure you, your family, and your business had some negative consequences due to some of the stupid and dumb actions and decisions by others in government, business, and/or the health community, but when all is said and done, each of us has the ability and right to turn these idiots off and stop letting them continue to control our destiny. My intent this month is not to blame or stay stuck in the past, but to try and learn how to not let life’s idiots control my life. For starters - the lockdown. Come on, shutting down churches and small businesses while large retail stores flourished? Do you think we are all stupid? Or, how about shutting down dressing rooms in stores so people had to go home and try stuff on, then return it when it didn’t fit? Duh - they still touched it and impacted it physically, just in a different place, you moron. And restaurants - closed after 10 p.m. ‘cause that is when the virus really took off? Come on dude, how stupid do you think we all are? How about COVID deaths? Research and statistics have proven that on average in many states, 10% of reported COVID deaths were not due primarily to the virus, but other factors. Or how COVID impacted society and relationships. I’m not allowed to hug my grandkids, shake hands, or sit next to people who may be spreaders, so I guess that means I have to spend the majority of my life locked in my basement? Sorry folks - not going to happen. And how about the “Mask Police”. On average, I was told by at least ten people to “Fix your mask” - when I was more than 20 feet away from them. I’m not a lawbreaker and I do respect others, but when I am so far away from you, I can’t hear you - don’t tell me what I need to do to not upset you. What about so-called virtual learning? Trust me, if kids are not allowed to get back to school on a routine and regular basis, this generation will end up being the dumbest, most out-of-touch idiots this country and world has ever seen. So, I believe we need to blend five concepts into all of life’s actions if we want to live life with some normalcy and not controlled by idiots: respect for others, common sense, wisdom, the truth, and reality. Let’s have an amazing 2021. Billy Bob Contact him via e-mail to
