    Do you think a dysgenia scenario like in Idiocracy is possible in the future?

    When I saw this video of Putin riding a three-wheeled motorcycle I couldn’t help thinking of a scene in Idiocracy where President Camacho is doing the same. :)

    well, it’s certainly possible. altho i doubt that people will be irrigating crops with gatorade — at least i hope not! (~_^) whether or not a dysgenic scenario for the future is likely is another question — and one that i can’t answer! certainly evolution is not directional — it doesn’t always lead to smarter or what we might consider better. the future could easily look like india — or hong kong — prolly a mix. who knows?

    So in the India scenario the average IQ people as we know it are a vanishing breed? I should be put in the endangered species list. ;)

    Hong Kong is much,,, much much better than India. I don’t get your reference in this sentence. As much as I don’t very much appreciate the mentality of Hong Kong people (living there for 4 years), it is a well-organized and structured society that is at least comfortable to live, except for being a bit too crowded. It’s the same level of Singapore in my view.

    don’t blame you — i was kinda rambling when i wrote that comment.

    what i meant was that the future could go either way — be a bit of a mess like india, or good like hong kong. (^_^)
