Proof that people are getting dumber.

So last night I fell asleep watching Futurama. As you know, when morning comes, it is no longer adult swim, it's Cartoon Network. All the kids shows are on, and with the kids shows are the kids commercials.

So I woke up, and the first thing I see is a commercial for a new Rubik's cube. I'm thinking, wow! A new one? This must be really hard. I mean the last one was made in the 70s and if it took you less than 3 days to solve it you were a genius. But this is 2007, and with a name like "Rubik's Revolution," I bet it's REALLY tough.

Nope.

I was so infuriated when I discovered what this puzzle entailed. Basically, it's the "push the button" game. That's right folks, no longer does it require logic or even a brain to solve a Rubik's cube. All you need to do is find the button and push it.

Don't believe me? Here's some kids playing with it.

I guess the silver lining of all this is the money they saved on instruction manuals.

How to play:
Step 1: Look for the button
Step 2: Push the button
Step 3: Repeat.

I weep for the future of this country.

how much do you want to bet that someone buys this new cube and complains that it's too hard?

Our future leaders are going to be of this generation ... be afraid ... be very afraid.

How is this proof of anything. Everyone I ever knew that had a Rubik's cube, never solved it anyways. And if they did, it's only because of a book.

EXACTLY! The thing was hard. And not just for little kids.

This new "revolutionary" cube is just buttons. Push the button, push the other button, and on and on.

And here's something to think about. Back when the original cube came out, everyone thought THAT was awful and asinine. That means in 25 years or so, people who play with this thing will be fucking genius compared to everyone else.

It seems that when something, or show, is hyped as "revolutionary", it is usually quite the opposite

Yes, this is what I was thinking myself. This society is fucked and not worth saving. Our priorities are all wrong and we've become a selfish shallow society.
