This is the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read

Behold! What would happen if a particularly dim-witted MRA met an evolutionary psychologist for a round of drinks, over which they discussed the possible future of the human race as determined by “sexual selection”? Maybe something like this.

To summarize – apparently we’re all going to be 7 feet tall with huge dicks and/or “pert” boobs. Except for the goblin people, they’re going to be just hideous.

You know, I read The Time Machine in high school, too, but unlike our friend here I didn’t assume that HG Wells was Nostradamus.

Also, this dude is an economist. In what way does that make him an authority on genetics, exactly?


Ah, the Daily Mail. Has anyone seen this story reported in a newspaper that isn't written by rabid howler monkeys? I'd be curious to see what an actual journalist would make of our wacky economist friend.

I thought I saw this about a year ago at BBC, actually, with not much more intelligent reporting.
Seems like someone's a little slow on things like class, sexuality, and evolution. Good story if you're 14 and wanking, tho'.

Are the goblin people going to eat the pretty people, like in the novel? Oh wow, that is intense.

HG Wells was a vegetarian, and he knew what would happen if we continued on this carnivorous course! :P

I had a friend send me that link the other day. We had a good laugh at it.
