15 Movie Quotes about Stupidity

15 qtes
Stupid is as stupid does
It seems like we are all getting a little dumber these days. Maybe it's the food, maybe the education system. Or maybe it's all the smartphones, smart TVs, smartwatches and even smart toilets. Since the beginning of the 20th century average IQ is falling. That's because we have to deal with more stimuli than previous generations. Our brains are constantly bombarded with information and as useful as it sounds, it can also harm our ability to concentrate, particularly in case of children. Being dependent on technology, even if it's just your calculator you use to perform simple calculation, can cause your brain to become lazy. All these smart devices have made our life easier, yes, but we are losing our problem-solving skills and the ability to think or remember without searching on the internet first.The good news is that thanks to smart devices we have a lot of extra time and comfort and we should use that to expand our skills, creativity and knowledge. No excuses!
