Sorry, still makes no sense. This is the same rubbish people do with the Americans, assume they are stupid because of a few videos in which hundreds
are interviewed and only the stereotype satisfying ones are shown.
I think the point is that there's always an alarming number of those 'stereotype-satisfying' people.. there shouldn't be that many, unless they
interview an inbred group of mutated retards. It's downright scary.
Of course anyone can realize those people might not be the 'everyman' on the street, and that out of a thousand people, most people would answer
those questions correctly. That's not the point.
The point is that such dumb people do exist, and there always seems to be a big number of them to be easily found.
One such individual would be a funny exception, like "the world's stupidest human", but so many of them, that are clearly considered just
'normal' people, living their everyday lives.. that's a little scary.
Those kind of people should be REALLY DIFFICULT to find. But they seem to be easily found just by random surveys..
That said, I don't think it's a "british" or "american" problem. I mean, why would a geographical area dictate the intelligence level of it's
denizens? I think it's a global problem - this whole planet has been contaminated. That makes much more sense - a planet is in many ways a separate
entity from the rest of the Universe, and it can be used as a 'prison for the dumb' very easily - dumb souls could be guided to incarnate on this
planet, so they won't be creating disturbance and annoyance elsewhere.
Just like they tried to do with Australia in this planet's history.
So in a way, I think the problem is that Terra is the Australia of this solar system - maybe even of this whole galaxy.
