The fastest runners in the world. The best longdistance runners. The strongest men and women. The fastest drivers, the best athletes, footballers, swimmers, the best fighters...
The quickest, strongest and best of most things you can imagine, all spend their prime of life, their peak in pointless competitions. Like the Olympics or driving f1 cars or playing football.
Wouldn't we be better to use the best of the best for something really productive?
Its like we produce these really brilliant humans and then don't use their brilliance to further the progress of humanity for the sake of good.
