INPUT. That is what is missing. You may wonder, "Why does my brain always atrophy, leaving me uneasy and disinterested?" and -FUPPETS- has the answer. YOU LACK INPUT. Your brain is desperate for anything which stimulates it, feeds it, and encourages the formation of new ideas and thoughts. It is practically starving, damnit! The mass of information your brain fed upon in school was just the beginning. It is up to you to continue nourishing your brain with an info-rich diet. Otherwise get the fuck out of the way, and let those of us who choose to feed our heads take the lead, you backward's-evolving, soon-to-be-monkey loser.
