To quote Scott Adams:


Idiocy in the modern age isn't an all-encompassing, twenty-four-hour situation for most people. It's a condition that everybody slips into many times a day.

It is a wonderful human characteristic to be able to slip in and out of idiocy many times a day without noticing the change or accidentally killing innocent bystanders in the process.

All the technology that surrounds us... is created by a tiny percentage of deviant smart people. The rest of us are treading water as fast as we can. The world is too complex for us. Evolution didn't keep up. Thanks to the printing press, the deviant smart people managed to capture their genius and communicate it without having to pass it on genetically. Evolution was short-circuited. We got knowledge and technology before we got intelligence.
