>The other day, my mom and I were driving to dinner when she noticed this little girl walking down the street with her parent (I forget which one). The kid was probably about 2 years old, maybe 3. I’m a terrible judge of age, but she looked too young for kindergarten.
Anyway, this poor child was unkempt, which reminded my mom of other unrelated toddlers that had recently crossed her path, “I keep seeing little girls like this. Hair isn’t brushed. Nose is all runny and this vacant look on their faces like no one is in there.”
That’s when it hit me. The IQ of the upcoming generation must be collectively plummeting.
I mean think about it. Smart women know how awful childbirth and rearing a child can be. Some have that genetic predisposition that overcomes that fear. Or else they have some magic potion I don’t know about. Or maybe they just look at it like everything else in life, just handle it as it happens. But it seems like most are forgoing the child option. The dumb people, however, are procreating like rabbits.
Then I came to the conclusion that maybe I should have offspring.
I mean if my IQ is higher than average the odds are that my children will be smart enough to know better than to suck on freon from an air conditioning unit. I mean it’s just Darwinism right?
Sure it will be awful for the first 5 years or so, but maybe I can sacrifice my sanity in order to save the human race from destruction. Well, maybe not destruction per se, but having to endure laws that protect idiots from being…well, idiots.
Don’t worry. I’m not going to go out and get knocked up tomorrow. I am smarter than that…
