Fellow thinker, Douglas Adams said, “A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof was to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.”

Wow!  That quote really rings true to me!  It reminds me of a recent conversation with a good friend about how it’s senseless to try to satisfy the fools of the world.  Most fools tend to be never satisfied mainly because they don’t know any better.  A fool by definition means deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding.  I think attempting to satisfy a fool makes about as much sense as attempting to drain the ocean.

So the next time you get caught up trying to satisfy someone that you’ve defined as a fool, ask yourself, “uhmm…and the bigger fool is _________?”
