Did you enjoy "Office Space"? Traci and I watched this last night (I heard about it on the internets) and it's great. Check out the plot synopsis.

Synopsis from IMDB:
Private Joe Bowers, the definition of "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive.

Essentially, all the smart people these days are waiting to have kids while the less educated are pumping out kids, who in turn pump out more kids. This is seen as a competitive advantage in the Darwinian sense. After 500 years the worlds smartest people focus their energy on curing baldness and erectile dysfunction. The English language turns into a combination "Hillbilly, Valley Girl, and gangstaisms"... water is replaced with some power drink that "annihilates thirst". There are ton's of little touches that make this movie hilarious... I highly recommend it

  1. I challenge you to watch it twice. I'd like to say that powerade is the best drink ever. Welcome to Costco. I love you.
