Too bad he's still in the gene pool. It's beyond stupid to do it on train tracks with earplugs in.
This is sounding oddly Nazi-ish.
I just think some people are better off not breeding, that's not a Nazi ideology but wishing every child to have intelligent parents.
That's very close to Nazi ideology (or at least the dark side of eugenics). You're saying that stupid people shouldn't contaminate the gene pool with their inferior genes. You even use the word "gene pool" in your post!
Yeah... this line of thought lead to the Eugenics movement where people deemed 'unworthy' had the chance of being sterilized against their will. It was mostly a racial thing from what I understand. The Nazi movement took ques from Eugenics Movement. Although I honestly doubt you were advocating the fucked up shit that either of these movements promoted.
I do not take kind of being labeled a nazi and I'm not advocating anything they did. Genes for intelligence are not found yet but statistically speaking, there is evidence of smart breeders having higher chance on smart offspring. There probably are intelligence genes we haven't found yet or at least there is a genetic component to it. While anyone has the right to have children, you'd be surprised how indepth assisted reproductive medicine goes into assessing whether each child that is conceived has two able parents, a healthy financial income of the household and also a parenthood test comes into play. It's not even eugenics, but I'm called a nazi?
@sdharrison: would you have said the same thing about the ps3 7 years ago? (high priced, underpowered, deeply flawed product)
Cause to me, and most people I would say, those words could have been used to describe the console and yet, for the last 2 years, I would have recommended a PS3 over an Xbox 360. And I prefer MS to Sony overall...
Sony had the crazy amount of 1st party and 2nd party studios going in from Ps2 to Ps3. Microsoft repurposed a lot their of PC-centric devs to make xbox games...only to sack a lot of them. Never forget; Digital avil, ensemble studios etc.
Microsoft lost Bungie, lost Oddworld Inhabitants, lost Johnathan Blowe, lost the support of Epic Games, gained the washed up Crytek, gained the studio in turmoil Insomniac and the universally hated 343i. Pretty bad trade to me. Microsoft relied too much on 3rd party this gen, now they have fuck all, a machine performing worse in multiplats and a lagging behind indie support.
