    It wasn’t a catapult, but the “B” Ark of the Golgafrinchams of “Restaurant at the End of the Universe” was the solution of Golgafrincham to get rid of their idiots.
    .
    Naturally, they became the ancestors of the human race in the Hitchhikers Guide series…

    There’s the second act. When the catapult gets put back to use solving the music issue.

    How about a science fiction movie where body armour actually protects the wearer?
    Or crewmembers on a spaceship about to go into battle … putting on spacesuits in case of a hull breach.

    Or a horror movie where the empty-headed Blond does NOT go up the stairs so she can be trapped by the monster/deranged killer/vampire/whatever.
    Or a disaster movie taking place in Des Moines, Iowa?
    Or a superhero movie where the hero is sent a bill for the Billions of $$ damage his battle with the villain causes in the city?

    As long as the dancers are young, energetic, and the choreography is well done. “Cats” is a good example.

    I’m reminded of a Sci-Fi story – can’t remember the name, however- wherein a flack-hack (advertising “genius”) from the past finds himself resurrected from cryogenic sleep, in a world of those who have Ph.Ds. in such as “Comic Book Reading”. Seems as if the world of that era is actually run by the few remaining intelligent folks, who decide to use the flack-hack’s “genius” to move the rest – by way of old rockets, and the like – to the “new world” of “ham trees” and “instant success”, etc.


    A rather bleak – but also accurate – take on the state of the world, as it may well be, after the dumbing down efforts of today’s “conservatives”, Right-wingnut/reactionary/regressive/religious nut-cultists, and Tea Potty whackos, manage to take over full control. Real zinger of an ending, too!

    The trouble with fantasizing about getting rid of idiots is the same as the trouble with speaking of “the surplus population”: You yourself may not be on the right side of the equation.

    The problem with getting rid of all the stupid people is that everyone is stupid in many areas of life. What if the IQ test is comprised of pop trivia and movie quotes or extreme environment survival skills or 18th century french poetry or social etiquette and interaction?

    Come on, that was an excellent comment.

    Ah, why’d they switch positions between cells 2 and 3? They trade places….Besides, this idea of stupid people into the sun is very much like several of the Pearls Before Swine theories proposed by Rat. There’s the Box O’ Morons, where all stupid people are in a box, or the Isle O’ Stupid People, where all stupid people are pushed off a cliff, only to trampoline onto a deserted Island.

    P.S.- There could be a sequel. The Stupid People could be saved by an alien race, who comes to worship them as gods. Then, years later, the stupid people/alien offspring would return to Earth, armed with advanced alien technology…In order to take their revenge on the planet that exiled them…
