"Je le lui expliquais tous les jours, il était si bête !"
Translation:I used to explain it to him every day; he was so stupid!

I think using "stupid" is a little too strong. Dumb is better. Stupide in French and estupido in Spanish, I think, are similarly strong. Bête and tonto (in Spanish) are milder insults like dumb. Could they all translate as "silly"? None of these are nice things to say, I realize. What do people think?
as a registered idiot, I think I'm more offended by the word police taking away my freedom of word choice than I am of being called stupid or dumb. I'm glad you have a moral code, but please don't forcefully inflict your opinion on others~ it tends to take away their own opinions, and that's an even greater offense. Thank you.
