I, for one, believe we aren’t all that stupid. Oh sure, there are those among us who still die in lawnchair accidents or end up in the ER because they “accidentally sat down” on the remote control. Those, however, are the exceptions. If we human types weren’t that smart, I wouldn’t be able to digitally record my favorite programs while holiday shopping online and IMing with my wife from across the room. These are the things–not to be mention the artificial heart and and Platinum Coil Embolization technique–that let me know I live in a society that has a future. Hell, I just learned a few minutes ago that there is a service that will let everyone who knows me know where I am at any given second. That sounds like a real treat.
These are just things that I have come up with off the top of my head. I’m too fried right now to get into this too deeply. Hell, if I did, Blogger would probably eat my post.
