- Black President
- Washington Monument is tilted
- Monsanto Corporation(Brawndo?) is ruining crops
- President sings to his viewers
- Cops abusing their powers without knowing it
- Fat, lazy people who eat goop and drink soda

All that's left is rehabilitation and one man to solve all of our problems.

I won't be happy until we have "ASS: The Movie".

I really liked that movie because of how close (unconfortably) we are to it and how it defitinly painted a picture for me, of a likly future scenario evolution wise.

When we need to change the charts for average intelligence to make the new average 70 IQ its time to really start worring!!

Although in that movie everything should have ground to a halt already, technology wise and maintanance wise.

I cant imagine a plumber with an IQ of 50 to be any good at fixing a drain

SUPER BIG ASS FRIES!

The scary thing about Idiocracy is how it quite strongly resembles todays society, well America at least. People are so exploitable, as a whole we really, truly are just cattle in this current level of consciousness.

I agree with you man. When I watched that movie, it made me feel really bad and kind of depressed. It seemed like such a small step from where we are now. I was born in the 50's and grew up in the 60's and I think there has been a profound change in the general population since just that time. Go read the writings from most anyone from the days of our founders and see how much more educated they sounded; how much more able to put together thoughts in a coherent manner than we are now.

I hate to say that you are right, but you are. I see a huge number of reports and documents each day and the number of spelling, word usage, and grammar mistakes is mind boggling. When I ask people to correct them before we release them to the public I am usually met with hostility or a "huh?" type answer. Why is proper use of language not a much higher priority? I guess soon we will see the new language from the movie, what was it - grunts, valley girl and something else mixed?

I think that's it. No one really cares about it. I think the nature of our communications today is part of the problem. Nothing is a permanent record it's all blogs and comments and facebook posts and tweets. As long as you get your idea across what else matters?

Unfortunately Fuddruckers is still called Fuddruckers. BUT, the service at Carl's Jr. is about on par with Idiocracy.
