Chris,
The numerical order (and suborder) of a word's dictionary definition is historical, not importance. I'm surprised a high school teacher would not know that. It's dictionary 101. Details here,
https://www.merriam-webster.com/help/explanatory-notes/dict-definitions

Also, a word can have several different meanings, depending on context, usage, intent and so on. See below. The meaning I intended was 1.b and 3.

MERRIAM-WEBSTER
1 a : slow of mind : obtuse
b : given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless manner
c : lacking intelligence or reason : brutish

2 : dulled in feeling or sensation : torpid -- still stupid from the sedative

3 : marked by or resulting from unreasoned thinking or acting : senseless -- a stupid decision


4 a : lacking interest or point -- a stupid event

b : vexatious, exasperating -- the stupid car won't start

None of this has any real bearing on BC&SK's fate. They died and were buried as unknowns -- not something they masterminded. The better evidence supports that scenario. A final resolution awaits the retrieval of the security tape from the San Vicente Starbucks. Best, Dan

    Merriam Webster's first definition is "slow of mind" BTW You left that out This can be debated all day, but it still doesn't help solve the mystery. The ironic and funny thing is, if Butch and... more

      brilliance or stupidity has nothing to do w/being dumped in virtually a common grave that the officials won't let you dig up to DNA

        I know of two graves we will not find them in LOL As far as them being buried in San Vicente? Not so sure. Looking at the inquest papers, it is not Butch and SK buried there.

          Why do you say that? The descriptions of the bodies are decent matches. I don't know of anything in the report that is an "a ha" indication either was someone else Anecdotal claims notwithstanding

            Vince, I guess the inquest is open to some interpretation, but what makes you think it was them? Their description does not make me think it was them. best, Chris

              i don't have anne' book handy but the descriptions as i recall fundamentally sound like them, SD having gained weight. Now anecdotally you have tales of people allegedly seeing photos of the bodies... more

                Hi Vince, I too am not able to pull my files out. If I recall correctly, one of the bodies was a short ugly guy. The other, was a tall guy. Which one was Butch and which one was SK exactly? Werent... more

                  I don't remember one being short or described as "ugly" in the docs. Give Bob some time to see this and he will post the descriptions, I'll bet

                      Bob, Both appear to have turned up noses in their description. Butch didnt and Sundance had a Roman nose. Not seeing how any of this would make you say that is the outlaws. Can you please explain?... more

                      OK, it does describe Butch as "a bit ugly" Strange thing to say about him as he was good looking so I see Chris' point on that. Not sure how they are defining the word "ugly" (how that word, whatever ... more

                      thanks Bob. In Birdseye or I would have looked it up. That is the description I remember. What makes people think that description describes Butch and Sundance? They are within one inch of each other ... more
