If you’re a woman and have recently called a member of the opposite sex an idiot, a new study indicates that you were probably right on the mark.
If you’re a man on the receiving end of the name-calling, it may be time to grin and bear it.
In a study published in the British Medical Journal earlier this month, the authors present their new “Male Idiot Theory,” or MIT: “Men are idiots, and idiots do stupid things.”
And they’re not kidding.
The research team reached their conclusion after analyzing more than 300 winners of the annual Darwin Awards over the past two decades.
The Darwin Awards “honour” men and women who have died in such unbelievably idiotic ways that the human race, they say, is better off without them in the gene pool.
More than 88 percent of the “winners” turned out to be men.
