Spell It Out For Me (And Spell It Slowly)

MoveOn.org goes balistic over Siri’s “personal opinion” on abortion. People jump all over themselves to blame Apple for the behavior of a beta product they purchased.

Conclusion: As a culture, we’ve “evolved” to the level of idiot. We don’t “get” jokes unless they’re either in your face or spelled out for us (“Yo, dummy, laugh now!”). And, on top of it all, we offhandedly take anything and everything that happens around us and assume that just because we can find an interpretation (no matter how far fetched) for them that offends our paper-thin skins, they MUST have intended that offense.

We’re a country of idiots. Self-centered, self-important, self-indulgent idiots.
