Stupid Things People Do for Attention

We are going to take a break and diverge from our normal theme and take a look at the crazy things people will do for free and for money. Which begs the question: why do people do these things? Some do it for fame, some do it for fun and some do it for money.   Psychologists indicate that most people will do things to garner attention and that money and any other benefits the acts might confer are secondary in nature. Well after watching these videos you decide why these people do the crazy things they do.

This article from the Guardian might shed some light on this topic

Having a high IQ score does not mean that someone is intelligent. IQ tests only capture analytical intelligence; this is the ability to notice patterns and solve analytical problems. Most standard IQ tests miss out two other aspects of human intelligence: creative and practical intelligence. Creative intelligence is our ability to deal with novel situations. Practical intelligence is our ability to get things done. For the first 20 years of life, people are rewarded for their analytical intelligence. Then we wonder why the “best and brightest” are uncreative and practically useless.

Most intelligent people make mental shortcuts all the time. One of the most powerful is self-serving bias: we tend to think we are better than others. Most people think they are above-average drivers. If you ask a class of students whether they are above the class average in intelligence, the vast majority of hands shoot up.

Even when you ask people who are objectively among the worst in a certain skill, they tend to say they are above average. Not everyone can be above average – but we can all have the illusion that we are. We desperately cling to this illusion even when there is devastating evidence to the contrary. We collect all the information we can find to prove ourselves right and ignore any information that proves us wrong. We feel good, but we overlook crucial facts. As a result, the smartest people ignore the intelligence of others so they make themselves feel smarter. The Guardian

People who risked their lives to do insane things

Now, this is a bit over the top, it’s one thing to have talents as some have in the videos above, but to risk your life to do something crazy, well that’s just insane. It seems people love to do stupid things in order to get five minutes of publicity. what they fail to understand is after those five minutes have elapsed they are just as irrelevant if not even more irrelevant than the event that helped make them relevant.
