Could we actually be getting dumber? DUH! The Mike Judge movie "Idiocracy" just might be a fact if we continue to get dumber each generation.

For those who have never seen the movie "Idiocracy" check out the first 2 minutes and it will explain everything.

According to Globalpost

Research published online in the journal Intelligence on Thursday claims the IQ of people in Western nations has fallen by an average of 14.1 points over the past century.

Their findings showed a decline in general intelligence of 1.23 points per decade.

So why are we supposedly getting dumber?

Previous research has found that women of higher intelligence are having fewer children, meaning women of lower intelligence are driving population growth, according to the study.

Over time, experts say, that would affect the average IQ of a population.
