Narrator: The years passed, mankind became stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes the genetic engineering would correct this trend in
evolution, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.
OK, so it would be easy for me to simply agree that the level of moronic influence is rising, but I don't have a reference point that isn't jaded
through my own perspective. As I grew in intellect, it seemed to me people I once thought were clever were not as clever as I suspected.
I have to acknowledge the chart (the hump chart of IQ). I am on the upper end. Not at the top, but pretty high up, and so most of the population is of
lower IQ than myself.ok, fine..above average people will have more lower IQ people around them simply out of basic math.
I think the question is, are people less informed now? This I can agree with. However, if someone asked me about erm..honey boo-boo, I would have no
opinion considering I only seen a commercial for it and seen it as not interesting to me. I can of course discuss some books, some politics, a lot of
science, etc..and people whom didn't read the stuff I read, or shared the same interest would be as dumbstruck as I am when discussing random pop
To me, persuits of literature, science, etc are more worthy causes, however, thats my perspective. Is my life truely more fulfilling with a
understanding of the latest quantum theory model compared to someone whom knows who lady gaga had sex with lately? I don't know..neither myself nor
that person in question is somehow profiting from the knowledge, so maybe its equal. I am not going to create a teleporter, and they aren't going to
make a million off of some pop reference book.
to sum up...
