Have you noticed that a lot of people have started to behave very strangely? It is almost as if the level of insanity in our society has been suddenly ramped up several notches, and I don’t have a rational explanation for why this is happening. All I know is that everywhere I look, people are behaving quite oddly. Perhaps we have simply reached a point where the number of stupid people in our society has reached a critical mass. Sadly, the truth is that intelligence levels in our society have been dropping for decades.
The average IQ of degree recipients has dropped over the decades.
From an IQ standpoint: high school graduates from the 1960s had almost the same level of intelligence as undergraduate degree recipients from the 2010s.https://t.co/1uHTM9GdlG pic.twitter.com/kDbVfbRK1Y

But you would have to be a special sort of dumb to try to sneak a snake on to a plane.
One woman in Florida actually tried to do this, but she didn’t quite make it…
Snake on a plane? Almost.
This isn’t the plot of a sequel to the action flick. Last month, a woman traveling through Tampa International Airport attempted to stow her boa constrictor in her carry-on luggage, according to the Transportation Security Administration.
A TSA tweet shows the X-ray of the four-foot creature that passed through the screening machine passengers must navigate before getting to the gate.
When the woman was asked why she tried to bring a snake on to the flight, she said that it was “her emotional support pet”.

Our criminals are getting stupider too.
In Chicago, a 22-year-old man recently stole a car so that he wouldn’t be late for his court appearance.
So why did he have to appear in court? Well, it turns out that he had previously been arrested for stealing another vehicle…
A Chicago man received a combined 16-year prison sentence for carjacking a driver so that he could get to court for a stolen vehicle case.
Edward Flemming, 22, was arrested in January 2020 after he sole a Ford Fusion while wearing a ski mask, but he was released on his own recognizance, CWB Chicago reported.
The following month, Flemming, along with a 17-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl, threatened a 22-year-old male with the intention of stealing the victim’s car so that Flemming could arrive at his court appearance at 9:00 a.m. on February 25, 2020.
Our politicians are also behaving very strangely.
Earlier today, I was stunned to learn that one member of Congress actually wants to “put a bust of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in the U.S. Capitol” on a permanent basis…
