If you're congregating in the middle of the street, especially while drunk, I really don't care what your IQ is or what you study: you're an idiot, and you deserve to be run over. You also have no right to glare at me. Get on the sidewalk, moron.
Honestly- is there anyone who truly ENJOYS the game-crazed, screaming, sweating, pushing-through-crowds, drunk-before-noon-on-crappy-tasting-beer scene?
Actually I had to listen to office bimbos talking about their drunken stupid things for over an hour today. One girl kept talking about the ice luge (ie, for vodka, etc), and how she passed out and woke up in the middle of her bathroom floor near the toilet, with her dog and a blanket. I felt disgusted.
It's got to be a 'dumb mainstream' thing.
Eugh. Some people don't deserve the right to breed.
I really wish they wouldn't sometimes. Actually, what's a bit worrying is the way that the poorer you are, and the less education you have, the more likely you are to have children. I think it'll be something good to look forward to, if eventually we can have an optional patron/sponsor system. But then I worry somehow the recipients would become more prosaic and spoiled. Go figure.
BTW, I'm pretty sure Geordie told me there was a movie about the financio-educational relationship along with birth rates within parts of a population. Something like "Idiot Nation" or what have you, about how all the educated stop having children, so the generations get dumber and dumber.
All things considered though, we have much more access to information, but I think we're using our skills less. Now that you can google everything, people don't bother finding about things the hard ways.
I haven't seen the movie but worry it'll be too pessimistic and obnoxious/stereotyping for my tastes. It might be interesting to watch, but things with such an outright political message can be really distasteful sometimes. Sort of like opening a box of cereal and realizing it's made of the letters, N, I, K, E, and a check mark. I really hate advertizing sometimes.
Is there really a cereal like that? That would be rather disturbing.
I think we're losing a lot of older skills, but gaining newer varieties of skills pertaining to technology.
No, not that I know of, but I wouldn't put it past people, if I expect it'd sooner be in a different form, probably related to children's programming.
