With the Artificial Stupidity topic key, the reader will find many posts decrying the trend in the modern world to make every damn thing smart (see Coffee Machines and Jet Airplanes - machines taking control). Smart phones are the worst of it, but there have to be smart cars, smart toasters, smart toilets (? They come to you when you're ready, I think...) This post is about the latest one I've heard of, a smart CPR dummy - yeah the hardest part about writing this post was sifting through my head for the best title.
The healthcare worker of our family has to do a recertification on CPR every 2 years. She's got a deadline coming right up. Well, she tried to get this done just after her work time in order to save on a commute. I kid you not - the CPR dummy was down. His software must have crashed. He was not so smart that day, so training had to be postponed. I still remember the day when dummies were just dummies, the CPR type and even the ones in Washington, FS.
Peak Stupidity has embedded this The Office scene before, I am pretty sure. This is one of the funniest pieces of TV I've ever run into.
