I was having a conversation with someone the other day that relates to this. I believe that technology is regressing our critical thinking making us overall slightly less 'intelligent' generation after generation.
I've always thought that technology will be the downfall of modern man.

I just love it when the brits keep following our media the copy everything it has to their websites. It's even funnier that the UK does not follow its own so-called commonwealth countries' media and has only designated "US News" sections on its own websites. Yeah, keep dreaming.
This graph on right illustrates the US average for SAT scores 1952-1994, taken the last year of high school (bottom axis), and year of birth (indicated on curve). The annual average decline in the scores inversely correlates with the total kiloton equivalent of nuke tests conducted at the Nevada Test Site the same year. The lower the SAT score, the more radiation released in that year from bomb testing at the NTS.
