How to spot a stupid person

It's always entertaining to find particularly stupid people. For example a guy was prosecuted today because he did 130mph and filmed himself doing it. Then he posted the video on YouTube.

The police are apparently pushing for this practice (the posting, not the speeding - thats' already bad!) to be banned - they don't want this sort of thing posted online. But I don't understand why.

I would have thought that the first thing police would want would be for them to post a video of the crime being committed in a public place like the internet. Imagine if Jack the Ripper had filmed himself killing Victorian "Gentleman's Ladies" and then mugged to camera afterwards. it would have been an open and shut case.

Every person who posts a video of them doing something stupidly stupid on the internet is stupendously stupidly stupid and should be locked up as soon as possible. They are lighting a big neon sign above their heads saying "arrest me now" and we should help this process along, not hinder it.
