Character error 

During the scene in which the narrator states that the average IQ of mankind dropped drastically over time, they did not take into account that the average IQ of mankind is always 100, with test results adjusted to keep 100 as the center value. The average IQ graph should have been a flat line staying at 100 points. Though this system may have been abandoned at some point during the rapid decrease of human intelligence.
Throughout the character listing, Joe Bauer is listed as "officer" or "private". He is actually a Corporal.

Miscellaneous 

Incorrectly regarded as goof: After Rita is captured and brought to Joe, she says "I thought you were in jail. How'd you get to be the Secretary of the Interior?" Even though no one had told her what Secretary he was, "Secretary of the Interior" was written on his shirtsleeve.

When Rita is captured and brought to Joe, she sees him and exclaims: Joe? The Secretary of Defense then says: That's "Not Sure" ma'am. Secretary Not Sure. Rita replies: Secretary? Secretary of WHAT? Joe then takes her away from the group to explain what is happening, and Rita says "I thought you were in jail? How'd you get to be the Secretary of the Interior?" She couldn't have known this, as neither Joe nor anybody else at that point, had told her what Secretary he was: the Secretary of the Interior.
