I have been part of the Wiihacks community for about four months now and I spend a fair amount of time surfing the forums at night. Though there are some pretty smart people online and good aspiriing newbies, I still get baffled by things some people do and can't help but think is this guy retarded?

Let me pick an easy example. THEMES, I think that everybody would agree that playing with themes can brick your wii if you don't know what you are doing and don't have the proper protection in place. Thats why we post warnings in big red letters saying "DON'T INSTALL THEMES UNLESS YOU HAVE BOOTMII/BOOT2 WITH A NAND BACKUP AND PRIILOADER!!!!" on every page of the theme threads and in every other forum and thats pretty much on every hacking site (Wadder, gbatemp etc.). Yet I regularly see posts saying "please help!! I brick my wii installing a theme and I don't know what to do." then you ask, "do you have bootmii/boot2 with a nand backup and priiloader" and you get an answer like,"whats priiloader and where do I put the nand" I"ll tell you where to put the nand, it goes in a box with the rest of your games and wiimotes, you tape it up and sell on ebay to someone with half a f""in brain!!! cause clearly you are to stupid to read all the warnings in big red letters and shouldn't be allow anywhere near a game consol.

I wish this would apply only to this particular example but I see it everywhere in everyday life. Take the airport for example, you buy your plane ticket while you are doing that there is a sign in your face with pictures, yes PICTURES! on it saying that you can't bring liquids, gels, aerosols etc. and there is a sign just like it every 30-40 feet from the ticket counter all the way to security. When you get to security, before you actually get in the lign up, you are usually greeted by a guard standing next to the same stupid sign with the same pictures asking you if you have any liquids gels or aerosols. You finally get through the line up and your next to go through the scanner but everything comes to s stop cause the idiot in front of you had a bottle of water, a tube of toothpaste, a bottle of shaving cream and f""in razor blades!!! OOOHH the stupidity!! No wonder those security guards have pee and vinegar in there veins. If I were them I would strip search the idiot , burn his cloths and send him on his merry way with "I was to stupid to read the sign with pictures on it" markered on his chest and back.

I could go on all night with example from wal-mart, the restaurent, the gas station but I don't think the letters s, t, u, p, i, and d on my key board could take the abuse.

    Lmao, hey I think the same thing everyday of my life. I think ppl are basically stupid and if they aspire to not be they can overcome it. Alot of ppl for whatever reason may have been patted on the back alot in life and never had the thought to become better in this reguard.

    Don't worry, everyone needs to vent. I agree with you. Sometimes you just can't help but think some people are just plain retarded when it comes to reading warnings.

    funny stuff there and well put. i'm a noob to this and i know to do that stuff before messing with themes. let me put that better. i don't know how to do themes let alone make one so i don't try. not a hard concept. how could you not read that sort of thing on here? warnings are everywhere. from what i've gathered so far this modding thing is simple you read what others have done and learn from their mistakes and triumphs. if it worked for them it might work for you but if not, don't try it and always have a frickin' back up plan in mind (i think this applies to everything in life). nothing tricky about it. about the thread though i woulda liked the walmart story, those are also funny. i gotta get this out there 2. us noobs own a lot of thanks to the people who made the hacks and the ones who made the tutorials and everyone else along the way that is willing to help.

    The world is full of stupid people m8, us with brains are in the minority! Natural selection/survival of the fittest should have cleared up the gene pool years ago but instead we pander to them and allow them to breed, just be glad that you're not like them and hope you don't marry one!

    Hear hear !! Remember : IQ is an average. Meaning, for every reasonable sensible person (120 or up), you have a moron with 80 or less. So.. basically, the smarter you (we ) are, the more stupid the rest HAS to be !

    As for the cure.. there is none. have a beer, start up your favorite shooter and unwind

    DHL guy today.. has to deliver a parcel I needed very badly. Gave my address to customer service and it was very clear. Wondering what's taking him so long I check the status on the website : RECIPIENT REFUSED DELIVERY. wtf ?? After some investigation, it turns out the company across the street also had some packages to be delivered today, the DHL dude went there with my package and they refuse it (naturally). And then he goes back to the depot.. He's gonna try again on Monday...

    rotfl... But u know the sad thing is that when they "search" they fail to even read the searching instructions. U'd be surprised at how many people don't know how to use the forum search. So their search is usually gonna fail anyways.

    But look at it this way: without the idiots, our intelligence wouldn't stand out too much.

    Your observations make me think of Blade's nemesis' lines in the first movie: "They're just cattle, nothing more." I'd personally rather be surprised by seeing personal initiative on the newbie's part, than the traditional "help me! I can't bother to search" daily, repeated chants in the newbie playpen. Like asking something that's not readily found in 1,000 posts for example...
