I'd say that to most people, deciphering the legalese to the point of agreeing in full awareness of what they'd agree to, requires lots more time than the time to intelligibly read it aloud to a lawyer.
To me the logical implication of the facts cited in the meme is that our having clicked "Agree" should carry absolutely zero legal weight. There is a deep sense in which it is impossible, by design, for a person to actually agree with anything -- because it is impossible, by design, for them to actually understand what they're "agreeing" to.

It would be one thing if these Terms were written in such a way that we actually had a prayer of understanding them. In that universe, clicking "I agree" might sometimes even be true. But in the universe in which we live, "I agree" can never be true, and what's worse is that the corporations made it this way on purpose. The "agreement" should thus be considered legally worthless.

I agree 100%. The ones demanding to have "I agree" clicked, can't pretend they expect the typical person they target, to actually read, much less to understand the language. We all know this is a meaningless ritual.

It's NOT a meaningless ritual for these companies. It's a planned, designed, and necessary part of their business plans. It guarantees them the permissions they seek from their users to mine their data and reuse it for purely profit-motivated reasons. That's how it works folks. You want to use that spiffy free app, you'd better understand what you're freely giving up of yourself to do so.
