Default "Idiocray" is coming true!

The following editorial was in the Washington Post on July 2, 2020. Since the movie Idiocray has been mentioned many times on this forum I though everyone might appreciate it.

Welcome to the United States of ‘Idiocracy’ by Max Boot.

But please, no fratching.

We're allowing this one, just please keep IA's "no fratching" advisory in mind.

Might as well lock this thread then; there's nothing else that can be said that *wouldn't* be fratching. :-P

Y'all are quite creative; I'm sure you'll think of something

It's not looking good from the Idiocracy view point.

Gatorade accounts for 75% of the sports drink market, although its sales dropped .05% in 2018.

For those unfamiliar with the movie, Gatorade is used to water crops in the Idiocracy future.

Mark Twain called it long before Max Boot.

Mark Twain was a time traveler. He knew waaay too much about the future. Good thing he was a good story teller and was able to hide warnings in his writings.

Actually, it was a fictional counterpart called Brawndo.

I really do need to sit down and watch that movie. It's on my list.
