Bad news, my fellow Americans. As if Global warming and the Tea party weren't enough! People are getting stupider. "Man's brain has been gradually shrinking over the last 20,000 years, according to a new report.” http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1343093/Human-brain-shrinking-20-000-years.html#ixzz315BiQ1JO The World Is Fat: “Obesity Now Outweighs Hunger Worldwide”. http://www.scientificamerican.com/podcast/episode/8dff8662-e7f2-99df-38e67664abff1d05/ So if we put two and two together, here is the obvious conclusion: while our brains are shrinking our tuches are getting bigger...the result of shifting priorities. In the age of technological progress, most humans use their butts more than they use their brains. The trend is especially pronounced in people with certain occupations: “We already knew that human brains shrink
as they age, but when we compared brains from today with brains from the 1930s, 1960s and 1990s, we noticed an alarming trend – human brains are shrinking. ”People in the fields of politics, entertainment, blogging and the legal professions are experiencing even more shrinkage." http://weeklyworldnews.com/headlines/36154/human-brains-shrinking-at-alarm So the brains of politicians, lawyers and entertainers are shrinking at an accelerated rate. I am sure you all can find some other examples. So my friends, if the trend continues, soon we'll be living on the planet of the apes. Just great.
