lol, I am not sure I could even say hello to him without laughing if I saw him there.
That's some serious CIA level stuff right there.
Is it stupid to not recognize a celebrity/former california governor? Would we all be stupid if Kim Kardashian walked around in a slight disguise? Not really. I bet Obama or Bush could walk around in a disguise one day and no one recognize them. It's not stupidity, stupidity is not knowing the justices on the supreme court but knowing all the names of the simpsons family. Heck I dont even know how many sit on the supreme court, is it 7 or 9?
Obama already walks around everyday disguised as a president that loves this country. lol
I work at a ski resort in the winter, where we have all sorts of celebrities on the mountain. You will run into them in the lodges. While many look familiar, I have seen several that I didn't recognize and wouldn't have know who they were except that others told me who they were.
Most people are too busy wondering how they are perceived by others to notice what's going on around them.
To answer your question: Just think about the average person. Now realize that half the people are even more stupid than that... (George Carlin reference)
