New Theory: Stupid people reproduce more because the alternative is sleeping with [Mefites]. June 29, 2009 11:40 AM Subscribe
There have been 205 comments on Metafilter as a whole mentioning the movie "Idiocracy", some subset thereof expressing or implying agreement with the premise of the movie (stupid people breed more so we as a population are getting stupider). There have been 800 comments linking to or about the online comic strip xkcd, some subset thereof expressing or implying an agreement with the opinions found in that comic strip. There is now an xkcd comic strip expressing the opinion that the premise of the movie "Idiocracy" is incorrect. In the law game, this is what is known as a split in the circuits, and requires a decision by the Supreme Court, hence this MeTa post.
