Overview
A book that proves idiocy is as old as time
Think civilization has deteriorated and that people these days are dumber than ever? Dumb History proves that we didn t invent stupidity in the 21st century. You ll find facts from throughout the ages about everyone from Cleopatra and Napoleon to Elvis Presley and even NASA scientists.

Consider this:


In 820 C.E., Emperor Hsien Tsung s herbalist presented him with an anti-aging elixir it killed him
In 1849, Brooklyn inventor Walter Hunt invented and patented the safety pin and then sold all the rights to his invention for $400. By the time he died penniless, the United States was producing an estimated five billion safety pins annually
In 1967, voters in the town of Picoaza, Ecuador, elected a brand of foot powder as their new mayor

It s a wonder we ve survived as long as we have.
