Description
How dumb can you get? How about the Chinese emperor Hsien-tsung, who took an anti-aging elixir in 820 BC that promptly killed him? Or the citizens of Picoazá, Ecuador, who in 1967 elected a brand of foot powder as their new mayor? Or how about the seven Pakistani bridegrooms in Peshawar who in 1986 fired their rifles into the air, bringing down a Pakistan International Airlines plane, killing 13 passengers and injuring 20? In Dumb History, Joey Green does a convincing job of proving one of Albert Einstein's lesser-known theories: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe."
