As subtle as a flying brick.

De-evolution imminent, claims scientist

The first sentence of this actual news story from the Daily Mail would make HG Wells proud:

The human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures, according to a top scientist.

For those who want to move past the silliness and actually consider whether there’s any science to this story at all, Bad Science’s Ben Goldacre wrote a column for The Guardian that’s a good place to start.

I’ve actually been observing and claiming the same thing for the past few years, as food for thought, check out the Movie “Idocracy“. Yes Mike Judge made it, but he’s actually pretty good, think Office Space and King of the Hill.. if you ignore his Beavis and Butthead years, he’s pretty good… wow I hate that show.

The purpose of the program set up by the Pentagon, called the “Human Hibernation Project,” is designed so that the military can save their best men for when they’re needed most. According to the officers heading the project, too many times the talents and expensive training of the best pilots and soldiers go to waste during times of peace. So they enlist Bauers (Wilson), the most under-achieving average guy they’ve got, to be the test subject for the initial hibernation experiment. Also participating in the top-secret program is Rita (Rudolph), a prostitute who agreed to take part in exchange for dropping some criminal charges against her, among other things. Of course, the experiment, which was to last only a year, goes under due to the arrest of Officer Collins, who is busted for heading a prostitution ring. Seeing as though he was in charge of the experiment, one of the only ones who knew of its existence, and due to a lot of top-secret red tape… and the massive scandals and base closure that followed, Joe and Rita were forgotten about.
