The Dumbest Generation?

This is a follow-up to the previous post, the video found while clicking around the links associated with the source of the previous video.

Hmmmm. I don't think I buy the idea, but I could be wrong. I definitely agree with the damage done by irreverance for the past.

Er... if it's not for credit, what possible motive do they have for not mocking the test?

The guys in my high school thought it was the funniest thing ever to pick the dumbest possible answer on a survey.

They still do.

Keep that in mind when you hear this or that survey with an odd result.....

I think what he misses is that there is a big difference between being ignorant and being dumb. Ironically he provides support for the thesis that today's students just don't care about anything not related to popular culture. One of the late night hosts was interviewing a bunch of students graduating from one of the LA Cal States. They didn't know anything until they were asked about sports or popular culture.
