This Guy's Been Reading too Much H. G. Wells

Human race will 'split into two different species' | the Daily Mail: "The human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures, according to a top scientist.

100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed.

The alarming prediction comes from evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry from the London School of Economics, who says that the human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000."

Don't we already have the Morlocks and The Eloi? Only in our world, The Morlocks are the Paris Hiltons, Britneys, and their ilk. The rest of us are the Eloi.

I think the split happened a long time ago. Thank goodness I ended up with the elite. Now, where did I leave that Jerry Springer DVD?

Probably over by the Cheesy Poofs and bean dip.
