Idiocracy: The Dirty Side of Evolution

I have no idea what Ricardo is posting about, here, but I had to laugh out loud at the image.

dont worry
Don’t Worry

But what it did do was remind me of the movie Idiocracy. Plot: Hibernation experiment goes wrong and guy wakes up 500 years later to find that he’s the smartest person in the world. Plenty of YouTube stuff here. I’m not going to draw too fine a point on this, as the post is intended more as humorous than as a tool of cognition (i.e., real knowledge). But with the Earth’s population increasingly seeking the easy, cheap way (often paid for with other people’s money), one must wonder if the intro to this film doesn’t have a ring of truth to it.

I’m just sayin’…

Finally, here’s a funny scene where the smartest person in the world has been called in to address the failure of crops. Now that scene reminds me of the argument over fat & cholesterol in the diet.

    Funny as hell. But, unfortunately, also very true. Just take a trip to your local Wal Mart, if you dare. Like young John Conner said, in Terminator II (I believe), “We're not going to make it, are we?; humans, I mean…”

    Hey Richard, did you notice the small waterprint on the first picture? I was curious about it so i opened the website and was shocked. The cartoonist seems to be either brainsick or has really evil views. This bullcrap is unbelievable!! heh, but on the other side it's so sick i've just send it to all my friends. They'll be shocked and loling at the same time.

    This is one picture Holocaust denier would like http://preview.tinyurl.com/mchd4n
    Give me a bucket!

    Idiocracy was hilarious!

    Yes idocracy is based on a quite funny idea. Unfortunatly, there are a lot of implausibilities that bother me a bit. One of the biggest one, is to assess that IQ is relevant and that it is inheritable. I know extremly smart people who would utterly fail on IQ tests and IQ geniuses who are living failures.

    […] any brains, the much longer term concern would have been Guam floating away. And here you thought Idiocracy was just a movie. I'm sure everything will improve, though, right after the next […]
