Science Explains 'Real Housewives'

"Our intelligence and behaviour requires optimal functioning of a large number of genes, which requires enormous evolutionary pressures to maintain. Now, in a provocative theory, a team from Stanford University claim we are losing our intellectual and emotional capabilities because the intricate web of genes which endows us with our brain power is particularly vulnerable to mutations – and these mutations are not being selected against our modern society because we no longer need intelligence to survive."

I'm not sure if people are becoming more and more stupid, but I'm certain that journalism is.

Makes perfect sense that a study on diminished intelligence capability comes out of Stanfurd.
