    Tests like the SAT, LSAT, etc. are IQ tests in disguise. Colleges and grad schools like to know how intelligent their students will be, but people would flip **** if you made everyone take an IQ test.

    As for me personally, I have to interview a crapton of people. The standard logic questions "4 people crossing a bridge", etc. After a while it becomes natural and you can just sort of tell. Granted, I can't really tell with anyone below 120ish because those people never pass the case part of the interview and don't get a verbal one. It's different when you verbally quiz someone with questions designed not to differentiate those with 100 and 130 IQs, but those with 130 and 150+.

    Seems like even with lots of video your margin of error would be enormous, but centuries ago? Bah, wild-ass guessing I say.

    I'll take the climate skeptic route and just assume a study I have absolutely no knowledge of is definitely wrong because it just seems thats how it should be, based on my gut and 5 seconds of thought.

    Ohh, he meant the historical study. As to that I have no idea, but I think you're right. They examine written works and stuff like that - that's as much as I know about it.

    Well, the methods he used had remarkably close results to those who had their actual IQ tested.

    However, you're probably right about it to some extent. I mean, there's only so much information to judge them on.

    That's your first mistake

    The most effective approach, in my opinion, for this is to not read the study or think about it due to reasons of laziness and lack of importance.

    Re: Adviser: Bachmann likely to enter WH race

    for those who might need a reminder about a funny candidate, don't forget the affable, gaffe-able, laughable vp

    as for ms bachman, she's serious

    about running, that is

    it looks like romney, pawlenty and barbour are gonna go

    that'd be my sources talkin, more than me, y'know---politico, fox, msnbc, the times, the post, the globe, ap, cnn, the networks, the wires, cspan...

    newt's such a flirt, it's hard to say (that'd be me, the msm's are falling again)

    rudy probably not, huck not, palin not...

    we're getting awful late, iowa is only 3 seasons away, times are so uncertain, more cloudy than any i've ever seen, and i've seen a lot, the president aint the only one punting

    iowa and new hampshire are key

    as for the election, obama's got an awful lotta problems, bigguns

    we'll see

    stay up

    Re: Adviser: Bachmann likely to enter WH race

    as for the "batty" and "insane," a number of obama's czars are pretty far out there

    his attorney general aint quite right

    the reverend of his church for 20 years, the man he called his spiritual mentor, from whom he borrowed the title of his second book, is an outright hater...

    tuff times call for elevated leadership and they also provide an opportunity for that leadership to be demonstrated and showcased

    the awful exigencies of now have sadly revealed our current president is utterly bereft
