    5? It’s funny because it’s true.

    Eh. Not really a fair comparison. The 340 B.C. storyteller and Isaac Newton were the cream of the intellectual crop for their times. I don’t think Nobel Laureates in Physics are going to be asking Siri for the answer to 2+2.

    No, ms. It’s the future. Think “Idiocracy”.

    People are not getting more stupid. If they were, then why is technology still advancing?

    Work retail for a couple of years, then tell us how bright people are.

    @Nathan –

    The people who create the latest technology are anything but normal. They are the cream of the crop, so to speak. Google/Apple/MS, etc hire the best and brightest from the top universities, as do engineering companies and the like. Just because they are still smart does not mean society as a whole is advancing.

    The problem is smart people aren’t breeding only stupid ones so someone better master that that cloning technology quick because the smart people are going to die out soon.
