Overnight Open Thread (4-3-2012)

Due to unforeseen circumstances tonight's ONT will be teh suck minimal. So instead we're having a movie night.

Tonight's feature presentation is Idiocracy - a under-rated 2006 movie from Mike Judge that's a moron favorite. While it's labeled a comedy, it's more accurately described as a comedic pre-documentary of our coming future.

Private Joe Bauers, the definition of "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive.

So What Does It Feel Like To Be Stupid?

I had an arterial problem for a couple of years, which reduced blood supply to my heart and brain and depleted B vitamins from my nerves (to keep the heart in good repair). Although there is some vagueness as to the mechanisms, this made me forgetful, slow, and easily overwhelmed. In short, I felt like I was stupid compared to what I was used to, and I was.

It was frightening at first because I knew something wasn't right but didn't know what, and very worrying for my career because I was simply not very good any more.

However, once I got used to it and resigned myself, it was great. Even though I knew I had a worrying illness, I was happy as a pig in mud.

And there's more of that retarded fag talk from this moron.
