and then there's the story of the driver, standing outside the car, helplessly holding the remote-entry key because the battery in the key had died and they "couldn't unlock the car".

In 1801, Friedrich von Schiller wrote the following in
The Maid of Orleans. Act iii, Sc. 6:
"Against stupidity, the very gods themselves contend in vain."


Some things don't change.

I'm convinced I've done things just as stupid as the people depicted. I must admit I'm a bit more cautious, with so many cell phone video cameras, to catch my errors. Like the time I .... No, wait! Telling you would really be stupid!
