We'd (hopefully) like to think that, as a species, we're getting smarter. Innovations, technology, gettin' learned...shouldn't our heads be growing with all the knowledge we're getting?

In a word: derp.

We're getting dumber.



Education is actually getting worse, and even our nutrition is getting worse. Snacks, snacks, everywhere...but not a drop of water instead of cola to drink.

Researchers claim that every generation is seven IQ points dumber than the previous generation. Do you know what this means?

It means that Idiocracy was, in fact, a foreshadowing of our inevitable future.

Better stock up on Brawndo! It gives [insert random object/person/whatever] what they/it/whatever craves!

I do believe it has electrolytes, too. I'm gonna go shave my chest with a lawnmower and have sex with a tractor trailer right in a parking lot. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just google "Brawndo" and watch the video.
