We ignore facts. We disregard science. Civility is vanishing. Social evolution is failing.

I'm no botanist. 

I'm no political scientist either. I'm just an average guy who happens to agree with the theory that society as a whole is suffering from a massive "dumbing down" - specifically here in the States.  

Clearly inspired by Mike Judge's Idiocracy, this little project is a simple commentary on how we've collectively become lazy, easily swayed and in a lot of cases reliant upon the misinformation of over-glorified and under-qualified pundits. 

We ignore facts.  We disregard science.  Civility is vanishing.  Social evolution is failing. 

Our demagogue is here - and could be argued he was brought to us by Carl's Jr.  

I digress.

Beginning January 20th (Inauguration Day), I will be watering this plant every week with Gatorade (of course it has to be orange) and documenting the "progress" every day for the next 4 years (or until I become bored with it).  Each image will be accompanied by a tweet from the president elect (if applicable).

Do I think this plant will live?  Absolutely not.  I do have an inkling of hope as this particular species (rubber plant) is supposedly "impossible to kill"... which is a similar, yet ignorant perception of this country that is apparently held by a large chunk of the population.

Anyway - fuck you.  I'm eating.



Fill out the form below and I'll get right back to you.
