    US adults are dumber than the average human

    US adults are dumber than the average human | New York Post

    Adults in Japan, Canada, Australia, Finland and multiple other countries scored significantly higher than the United States in all three areas on the test. Beyond basic reading and math, respondents were tested on activities such as calculating mileage reimbursement due to a salesman, sorting email and comparing food expiration dates on grocery store tags.

    Not only did Americans score poorly compared to many international competitors, the findings reinforced just how large the gap is between the nationís high- and low-skilled workers and how hard it is to move ahead when your parents havenít.

    In both reading and math, for example, those with college-educated parents did better than those whose parents did not complete high school.
    As the American economy sputters along and many people live paycheck-to-paycheck, economists say a highly-skilled workforce is key to economic recovery. The median hourly wage of workers scoring on the highest level in literacy on the test is more than 60 percent higher than for workers scoring at the lowest level, and those with low literacy skills were more than twice as likely to be unemployed.

    ďItís not just the kids who require more and more preparation to get access to the economy, itís more and more the adults donít have the skills to stay in it,Ē said Anthony Carnevale, director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce.
    Not coincidentally, liberals now outnumber conservatives and are winning more and more elections without any intellectual merit to their platform whatsoever. Campaign strategies have to be designed at a third-grade level these days.

    Dark, scary days ahead with this worthless, brainless voting bloc running things.

    All this means is that people with brains will be far better off in society and make tons of money off the stupid people! And then the stupid people who have no skills will vote idiots in power who will take all that the smart people with brains made and waste it on porn and hookers.

    Yet most major advancements are started here in the US, copied and or refined elsewhere.

    Wait a minute..

    Conservatives have always said that the US is a conservative nation, hence the part of the population that is brain dead must be the conservative portion since they are supposedly in the majority...

    And considering the Palins and Bachmanns and Newts of the conservative backbone, then we actually have empirical evidence that the "brain dead" part of the US has to be the conservative "majority!"
