I found Idiocracy to be funny in a ironical way, as it was probably intended. At least the first half, since afterward it turns into the usual cheesy Hollywood thing.
This post on Zen Habits reminded me about Idiocracy.
I follow Zen Habits in Google Reader and I like Leo Babauta's honest and smooth writing style. I also enjoyed his free ebook, Thriving on Less - Simplifying in a Tough Economy.
But I don't get posts like the one mentioned above.
It's a guest post with 30 ideas "for high-quality, low-cost, stress-free family fun". So not the stressful kind of fun.
I understand that more and more people are spending their time staring at stuff in the computer screen and sometimes they neglect their families and friends, but who actually needs a list of things to do with their family? Is lack of ideas the issue?
I was looking through the comments to see if there is an answer like: "Oh, wait a minute number 6 is brilliant. I never thought of talking to my family ... yeah, definitely something to go in my task list for the weekend."
No success, but we're close. People are thanking for having a 30 days roadmap with their family.
I'm waiting to see the first part of Idiocracy 2. The second part is probably predictable.
