We’re living in a society! Screw meteors, get the scientists working on this ASAP!
We have a problem.
No one thinks that they’re stupid, but if you’ve ever been in public you know that most people are, in fact, complete morons. And I think the issue isn’t a lack of inherent intelligence but more the fact that people are increasingly distracted and that distraction leads to profound situational stupidity.
We can’t change that, but it would be nice to be aware of the approximate “Situational Intelligence” (SI) of the people you’re dealing with. We should all wear hats that show our SI at any given moment. You go to check out at the grocery store you can see the SI of every cashier and everyone in line and decide “That line is longer but they are some focused, smart motherfuckers at the moment! I’m going there to pay for my Cheez-Its and tripe!”
IQ could be used as a baseline. The hat would then scan the person and the surroundings and make the appropriate adjustments. For example, say you enter a fast food restaurant:
You have a smartphone= -5 points
You have your smartphone out= -10 points
Your smartphone is a Blackberry= -20 points
It’s your first time in that establishment= -10 points
You have children= -20 points
You have children with you= -100 points
You have your method of payment out and ready while in line= +10 points
That method of payment includes a rubber change purse= -30 points
You are with friends= -10 points
You are with friends and you think you’re the funny friend= -50 points
While in line you think about things like magic hats that display intelligence scores and honestly think hats like that couldn’t be that hard to invent= -200 points
Now, I don’t know how to build the technology, but it can’t be that hard so get cracking, smart people!
Oh great! Someone has asked me how old I am via my tumblr! I will now inform them that I am much older than they thought. I am sure they will now spread the word amongst all their equally young friends to follow me!
Ag Style Response: *Hmmmm…whine about never getting messages…get messages* Damn it! I am never sent tasteful nudes of beautiful young women. Or not so tasteful nudes. Or money. My followers never send me money (single tear).
Response To Ag Style Response From Someone Who Knows Kayfabe All Too Well: Ugh. Really probably should have disabled “Photo Replies” after complaining about not getting nudes.
I was going to spend today creating and posting some new creative content along with a selection of “best of” content since I have a few new followers. But it appears that, unlike me, most of you have plans on this beautiful holiday weekend that don’t involve you just staring at a computer monitor all day.
