    They had no time to get hitched. They had to pay taxes.

    Funny how things work in cycles.

    Apparently the UK is just lousy with these rugrats:

    Meet Elise, the girl of two with an IQ higher than Carol Vorderman! | Mail Online
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Yes, quite amazing. I am sure the toddler during the interview, wiped a finger through some dookey in her butt, held it up under the reporters nose, and uttered with preternatural creativity for her age: "and this is important for all the wrong reasons."

    IQ Tests are Retarded
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Pretty much. Anyone who's taken basic pysch knows that there are a variety on intelligences. An IQ number is a pretty subjective measure of anything. Idiot Savants are brilliant at one thing, but generally are incapable of living a normal life. IQ tests don't tell us much of anything.

    Furthermore, Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell argues quite convincingly that it's not intelligence that equates to success. It's the people and activities that one engages in and is helped by, as well as just luck and era of birth that allows people to excel and become what we consider great successes.

    He cites an example of someone with an IQ of 180 who lives in poverty and has never held a job down for a significant period of time.
