A Post that Demonstrates That Even the Irredeemably Stupid Can Rise to a High Level of Success

Best actress Oscar winner Marion Cotillard has allowed her deeply insightful and classically trained economic philosophies to be captured by the media and emblazoned world wide.

The result? Gosh, they must not train you to keep your mouth shut in actress school.

In the interview, given to French TV show Paris Premiere, Cotillard appears to suggest the attacks on the World Trade Center were staged to avoid the expense of refurbishing them.

"We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes, are they burned?" she asks. "There was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burned for 24 hours.

"It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [in New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed."

The Twin Towers, she claims, were a "money sucker" that would have cost much more to modernise than to destroy.

The actress goes on to cast doubt on the Moon landing of 1969. "Did a man really walk on the moon?" she asks.

"I saw plenty of documentaries on it and I really wondered. In any case I don't believe all they tell me."
A couple episodes of Bill Nye would clear up most of the science. As for the economics, about half the skyscrapers in New York would need to be pulverized in order to meet Cotillard's criteria. I suppose it is lucky that NY developers were able to find 19 willing jihadists sympathetic enough to join them in their real estate scheme.

And the moon? Hey, from my vantage point, I'm not certain France even exists.
