There are still exceptional people, though it seems that the dilution effect displaced them to the periphery.
"Le bon sens [La Raison] est la chose du monde la mieux partagée" -- Descartes.
I'm twisting his "Discours de la methode" of course, but let's posit that there is a finite amount of reason available in the universe, if it is evenly distributed as the above citation appears to suggest, it is being increasingly diluted, and are getting dumber every 5.39121 10^-44 s.
It would conveniently explain the humorous and intellectual impoverishments that have gained BWOT threads.
BWOT and the universe are both doomed.
