Our Friend Darwin

All though Darwin is often misquoted, he basically came up with the concept of survival of the fittest. This meaning those who can adapt well to their surrounding environment will survive and ultimately the weak will be weeded out of the gene pool. In today's society this concept is not seen in practice that much since the human species has even allowed the weak to adapt to the environment with little effort via air conditioning, heat, rain coats and protection from mother nature in general. However, I say it is time we give Darwin and our gene pool a hand and bring about the modern concept of survival of the fittest.
Of course we cannot take all the humans in the world, throw them into the wilderness with no tools and see who survives. But what about our modern wilderness? By modern wilderness I mean the harsh streets where cars whiz by wildly at 40 or even 50 mph. Once again today's society has allowed the weak to survive, for even someone who cannot outrun a Suburban can simply use a crosswalk. So what if we change survival of the fittest to survival of the smartest? One would think someone with a basic knowledge of the world, cars are bigger then humans and tend to be faster, could figure out that using a crosswalk is the best means to ensure their survival. (Just hang in there. I am going somewhere with this) Therefore, if someone lacks this basic knowledge they most likely will run out in the middle of the street in front of an oncoming car. When I see this happen I believe there is no reason why the car should not hit the imbecile who could not figure out that walking an extra 20 feet and using the crosswalk would have been the wiser and safer option. If we were allowed to use our automobile to eliminate these idiots, the human species would be able to weed out the dumb and ultimately raise the intelligence amongst our gene pool.
Or perhaps I am just your typical pissed off human with little or no patience for anything.

Who did you want to run down with the car today?

No one. I just hate when people run infront of my car.

There may be a flaw in your logic. You would also end up with a gene pool of mean, unfeeling drivers. Hmmmm.

Since it has been so long since you've written, I assume you've been out looking for a job :)
