Well said! One's perceived value to society appears to be inversely
proportional to intellect. To be of great value to society, one must
think like a lobotomized ape and go around speaking such meaningful
phrases as "duhhh, footbawl!"

Considering that a large percentage of the world's population,
including a large percentage U.S. population, still appears to not
even have evolved to the Stone Age yet, it probably wouldn't take long
at all. Given that a large percentage of politicians still have a
pre-pre-historic mind-set, they won't be of much help.
