more real than reality

All right, I ripped this headline straight from Drunkadelic, but its worth repeating. 11% of American between 18 and 24 cannot find the US on a world map. This is just pathetic. There are other statistics there, too, but this is the worst. I guess it just goes to show how little we think about the bottom of the bucket, so to speak. These are the bottom 11% of the intelligence pool. Reminds me of something I heard once: “Imagine how dumb the average person is. Now just think that half the population is stupider than they are.” What I wonder is where all these incompetent people are. All we ever hear is people asking this question. Maybe its just because only the more intelligent ones are asking the question, but it seems odd that no one can figure out who all these people sucking the intelligence out of the population are. *Sigh*, what can we do? Statistically there always has to be stupid people, or by definition smarter ones wouldn’t exist. It’s a cruel predicament.
