  • No not quite.. but the stupid can be happy because they don't have the awareness to realise why they should not be happy about a particular thing..

    "Ignorance is bliss" is an idiom which is not to be followed as a rule of life. It simply means if you are unaware of something, you won't worry about it. But -- you may be blissfully unaware of that two-ton safe falling off the roof and heading toward your head at 100 miles an hour. This post was edited by Louie at January 6, 2017 7:15 PM MST

    You can be ignorant without being stupid. Many smart people lack education or knowledge of specific information.

  • Not stupid. Just unaware of the approaching problem.

    Ignorant doesn't mean stupid, it just means lack of awareness.
