I've been using the word "moron" with my own spin for a long time across a variety of writings:
(they weren't all rants -- more about Synergetics, not all that strange then, given Applewhite et al's involvement (domes were hot stuff in the Cold War days -- think DEW line -- and 'Critical Path' might have contained important military secrets))
I think people generally buy the myth that they use only 10% of their brains, though neuro-scientists I've talked to have thrown some cold water on that.
But it's a nicer way of saying we're operating far below our potential.
