Some of Robert Falcon Scott’s last words as he realised his fate was sealed and there would be no successful return from his Antarctic expedition of 1912. 100 years ago and, while we may have been to the moon in the intervening years, Scott’s journey (and those of his men) still has few comparisons.

Matthijs van Boxsel’s Encyclopedia of Stupidity is an enlightening book, concerning itself with an exploration of the main driving force of Man: Stupidity. If you’ve ever felt like Will Ferrel in Zoolander: “…Why hasn’t anyone else noticed? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!” Read it. It’s not you…it’s them.
