The first panel was based off of a fake news story about how lives are shortened by working with stupid people. The third panel is true in that a website was apparently created to give info to people about the blackout which is self explanatory in its absurdity. I would believe that working with stupid people could increase stress on a number of levels. If you think about it, dealing with those people can be stressful and pessimistic about humanity. Plus if they mess anything up and you have to cover for them that could easily lead to additional stress. It would be great if job interviews could weed out the people who have no knowledge of basic history and major cultural references.
