First, the young uns I'm training struggle with critical thought & simple arithmetic. Kinda important for keeping track of narcs & hard to get surgical stuff...

Second, a gaming buddy of mine who works at Lowes & constructs houses as a side hustle can't find people who understand angles & basic measurements.

Third & most poignantly, my best friend from high school fled the teaching profession to work in health care as a Patient Advocate. It was killing him.

He has nothing but horror stories about Seniors who know one hell of a lot less than we knew graduating the ninth grade decades ago.

I think you're commenting without watching the video, which is cool, I do it all the time.

Idiocracy is a funny movie, but the argument here is that it fails as satire, because it uses a fake eugenics argument to explain the wave of stupidity, and that's wrong headed.

That's as close as I'm likely to get to any brief summing up of an hour and a quarter of a young woman talking very fast. If you don't want to watch this, I get it, but it's good. Sarah Z (she pronounces it "Sarah Zed") is a little too meticulous. She does a ton of research, and then uses all of it, and the topic of "just why are we so stupid?" is worthy of a ton of research.

Lindsday Ellis: "Sarah always floors me with how much research, nuance, and sensitivity she brings to her topics."

Lindsay Ellis? The white girl with important feeling who said Mel Brooks shouldn't laugh at Nazis? Forget that noise. I'm glad she quit.

Sorry, that is an area of YouTube I refuse to support. Life is too short for PC horseshit.

Your mom had no complaints.

Also, I've noticed that younger people are getting dumber.

That's not eugenics. It's an objective fact that my trainees are as smart as house plants.

Idiocracy, a movie mocking stupid people, loved by people too stupid to realize they're supporting eugenics.

At least the protagonist in A Connecticut Yankee was an engineer. Idiocracy appeals to the intellectual equivalent of survivalists who fantasize about the apocalypse, when they get to be king shit once pesky society disappears.

God, I wish YOU would quit!

At best that's incredibly reductive, but I really do believe you made it up in your head.

I come here out of sheer force of habit.

Also, my remaining time on this globe of sin will not be spent on watching a breadtuber with resting bitch face.

Speaking of the toxic woke left, no danger haired, screeching harpy tells me what I can & can't laugh at.

In conclusion, to hell with Lindsay Ellis & her ilk. I'm looking forward to what Elon Musk is going to do with Twitter.

Watch out! If you mess with his quirky, approachably attractive youtube pop culture critic waifus, John will fucking cut you.

What are you talking about? Her video was about why Blazing Saddles is genius and why the people claiming it couldn't be made today are morons who missed the point of its humor.

Gosh I love listening to the opinions of a youtube video/submitter that clearly have no children opine about future generations.
