Jimmy Kimmel and other late night hosts are famous for exposing the general uneducated stupidity of human beings by asking random questions to strangers on the street.

That said, his most recent foray into public with the question “should Homo Sapiens be saved?” might take the cake.

Maybe what all this is saying is that we really don’t deserve to be saved. Seriously.

I hope some nice scientists convince the leaders of the world to do it anyway.
