    Truth really is stranger than fiction.

    And the stupid people really are outbreeding us. I firmly believe this. I also believe that American society is gradually getting dumber.

    Fifty years ago, restaurants didn't have to attach warning labels: "This coffee is hot."

    Oh, and people who wear seatbelts are less likely to be hurt in an accident(source: Seatbelt Physics) and less likely to die.

    Sure, some people will roll their own, but how long did rolling your own tobacco cigarettes last with most people?

    Actually the tobacco industry can't physically treat the cannabis crop they way they do with tobacco, well not unless they want a crap product that no one will buy. This is because the cannaboid production (the recreational compounds) is a very sensitive process and any shortcuts from seed to product will decrease quality. Cannabis essentially has built in quality control. I think it is impossible for cannabis to be massed produced like tobacco. I think if cannabis is legalized we will see markets of localized producers, much like the Netherlands.

    And those who did demonstrated their inability to live.

    This is why I fully support revoking seatbelt laws. People who are too stupid to wear a seatbelt generally fall into the category of "too stupid to live."

    The stupid people have always been there, they're just getting more attention now. I would like to believe that people have gotten smarter in the last 50 years, but that's probably just me being an optimist.

    When did I say different? And people who eat very little saturated and/or trans fats also live longer and cost less. Should we ban saturated fat?

    You'll find that Stekim is highly quotable.

    No. You're non-elitist. The elitists are better than you. Always happy to clarify for the differently-abled.

    The stupid people have always been there, they're just getting more attention now. I would like to believe that people have gotten smarter in the last 50 years, but that's probably just me being an optimist.
    We do more now to protect the chronically stupid from the consequences of their actions. 100 years ago, chronic stupidity = death/dismemberment. I am in favor of allowing the stupid to fully experience the results of their actions without coddling by the nanny society.

    In the alternative you are simply one of the dumb people, so most everyone else seems smarter by comparison! I'm not saying that's true, mind you, but it could be. I don't know you well enough yet to judge. Just throwing ideas out there.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?
