The End of Civilization

Validation on getting rid of cable:

Fox announced Saturday that it is making a new game show, “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” that will air sometime later this year, perhaps as early as the spring.

Adults will compete in a quiz based on questions from elementary school textbooks. Actual elementary school students will be on hand as “experts” for the adults to consult with.

“While most game shows measure how smart you are, this is a show that will measure how dumb you are,” said Peter Liguori, Fox entertainment president.

    The End is near…

    After watching the show for about five minutes I concluded:
    It’s boring…the kids are given the answers…an individual will retain the most current, relevant information to themselves so to say a fith grader who is studying the information daily is smarter than someone who may or may not have studied that information 20 or more years later is absurd…and last but not least – Jeff Foxworthy is a redneck and seems uncomfortable in the role of a game show host, even though he tries to be insulting
