In pre-historic times people who didn't listen got eaten...now they are able to spend safe days in office cubicles.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Could it be 21st Century predators are a forgiving lot of creatures?

Could it be Darwin was wrong?

...survival of the fittest? ... or was it survival of the most adaptable? ... or is it survival of the least able to listen?

Assuming evolution is an accurate theory - and I'm not so sure about that any more - How many generations will it take for human ears to shrink and disappear through lack of use?

That's a great one Rick! And the people this refers to will NEVER get it!
Reminds me of another thought....
When you are dead, you don’t know you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid!

Thanks for the feedback, Stu.

It seems to me the skill of listening is more linked to ego than to IQ or even EQ.

The stronger the ego the weaker the ears.

Evolution apparently favours egos over ears.
