    It was in Total Recall, too; but it's also in the Matrix. It served the same function, though in The Matrix, it's presented alongside the blue pill.

    Aaand.. that community equates 'embracing misandry' with 'awakening from a simulation and facing reality as it is.' Fun stuff.

    Also from the wiki:
    There are two kinds of people, the "bluepills", the people who took the blue pill or didn't choose yet, and the "redpills" who took the red pill and were freed from the Matrix.
    Wait, there are kinds of people!? Let's adopt this as a typology system.

    Total recall was better than The Matrix.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I don't think society has actually been dumbed down. Just that we have more access to what people are actually thinking, so it looks like people have been dumbed down. But do you really think people were any smarter in the middle ages, when most people couldn't even read? If we had scrolls of tweets from the Middle Ages, assuming that everyone could tweet, it would probably look equally stupid, if not more so.

    Is there a difference between having friends and having symbiotic parasites?

    Me either. History tends to remember the people who.. y'know, actually contributed.

    I just found the juxtaposition of the Idiocracy bullshit with the avatar, but I don't know that I can get across why it's so funny to me

    Related -- complaints about 'kids these days' in some form has a long history:
    I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on the frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words.

    When I was a boy, we were taught to be discrete and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise and impatient of restraint.
