Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Extra Stupid?

Who can help but be delighted with this twist?

What to do with a Stupidity Surplus? What, in your opinion, would be the frustrations and dilemmas of living in a just, reasonable, and well-governed society?

Re: Extra Stupid?

There would be a plethora of unemployed conservative radio talk show hosts constantly creating disturbances in Starbucks over the left-wing conspiracy to secretly replace whole milk with soy milk in the latte.

"60 Minute" correspondents will be overcome with shock when politicians INVITE them and their camera crews into their offices rather than running from them.

Rush hour traffic in large cities might actually, you know, rush.

Re: Extra Stupid?

If we did live in a world with a Stupidity Surplus there would be a lot of unemployed journalists out there. They would either have to turn over a new leaf and start talking about how there are not enough cute kittens in the world, or as Robyn stated, the proper use of Soy milk in coffee shops, or either just give up the arguing completely and become customer service representatives :-).
