I wonder if there is any scientific evidence that proves people become more pessimistic over time. I just read an article that pushed me over the top (or off the edge, if you will) about the fate of our civilization: we are doomed.
The stupid people in our society outnumber the smart ones. It's just a fact of life. I'm not sure of the reasons for this, but I suspect stupid people figure less time reading = more time fornicating. It's also problematic that some very smart people, such as my friend Justin, make a conscious effort to not procreate, and as result, lessen our numbers. Our only hope is that they designate a planet that has an IQ requirement as a condition of living there.
What was the article that sparked all this, you ask? Alright, I'll share. But don't blame me when you find yourself depressed, knowing full damned well that we have no chance of surviving more than another 100 years or so. Here it is; the way I see it, this poor kid is destined for a tragic life whether he is the anti-Christ or not. His ignorant-ass mother will see to that.
Update: As promised, here is the link to the Onion's commentary about the idiot who thinks her baby just might be the anti-Christ.
