Just when we thought we´d seen it all along come four US citizens with IQ well below room temperature.

These four people traveling in Iceland had the brilliant idea of bringing a small camping table and chairs to a small glacier lagoon in Iceland, placing those on the nearest floating flat iceberg, have a seat and just pretend to have a unique picnic. They even took pictures.

Stupid is what stupid does and over centuries it has been known that icebergs float, not where you want them to, but follow the various currents. Thus, it seems to have taken these smart peoples by surprise when all of a sudden they were ten meters from shore in waters cold enough to kill a person in seconds.

Rescue services had to be called since the individuals in question didn´t dare jump into the water to save themselves. Apart from the monstrous stupidity these kinds of stunts will sooner or later have implications for the rest of us with strict laws forbidding this and that.
