Animation fun; also: Human values are determined by intelligence.

Okay, if you haven't seen it, this animation is wonderful and clever: Behold, "Animator vs. Animation":

The artist, Alan Becker, made a sequel where Stick Man gains super-powers:

In related news, Liberals, atheists, and sexually fidelitous males have higher IQ than conservatives, religionists, and male cheaters (CNN News). Let's frame that in a less-inflammatory way: Human values are determined by intelligence (ABC News). Not that one needs to comment much about this, because it's rather apparent when listening to wingnut conservatives scream against science or contradict themselves day after day. Still, it's nice to see some evidence that explains why so many people, say, believed Bush's lies and allowed the Republican party to trash the nation. It explains the existence of the Teabaggers and Sarah Palin supporters. And it explains why they still let politicians and right-wing talking-heads control them using using fears, and why they stop listening to rational arguments because facts are hard.
