Your "e-book-reader", sir madam, and a snip at $399 it is, here. Fancy reading a "book", any more.
A massively infectious disease that kills the Stupid the world over is ever more acceptable. Will it be spread at first from Africa by gerbils, like the Black Death?
I don't know, I am not an epidemiologist.
What will we do when the Stupid are dead? Will the side-effects be as profound as that of the Black Death, which saw clocks take on a sudden significance in the Western mind as labour costs rose steeply and had to be regulated?
Who will drive all the motor cars, play all the golf, make all the television and radio programs, when the Stupid are no more? Will the Olympics 2012 flame gutter? Will there still be Government as we understand it? Will anyone study war?
Bit sad about so many people dying, and so forth, but shit happens.
