America's Future

So the other day I wasted two hours of my life and watched Idiocracy with Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph. Sadly, the logic behind the movie is pretty dead on. If you haven't ever seen it or heard of it, I'll give you a brief overview:

A lazy army guy and a prostitute are put in cryo-tanks as an experiment to see if they really work. Funding for the project is pulled and they end up staying in the pods for 500 years. When they come out, the world is full of idiots and intelligence is extinct (being that all the intelligent people have decided to wait to have kids and all of the idiots do nothing but reproduce). Luke Wilson then by default is the smartest man on earth and is hired by the President to fix all their problems, number one being that they can't get any plants to grow because they are watering them with gatorade instead of water because gatorade has electrolytes.

There. One minute of your life wasted is MUCH better than two hours right? Anyways, the only part of the movie I actually found amusing was the following clip. Don't worry, it'll only be 12 more seconds of your life...

Well, at least there's still Costco's in the future.

It's too bad. The movie looked like it had promise. Glad I missed it.

How interesting. I was surfing just the other day and this movie was on ... so I tuned in ... just in time to see the clip on your post ...

... truthfully, I only gave the movie those 12 seconds ... and no more. That's how interesting it was for me.
