I'd say something about your hat, but it would be disingenuous, as I have a stylin fedora myself I sport on occasion.

I suppose fictional stories containing concepts that have echos in the real world should never be used as examples when trying to illustrate a point without being able to immediately produce case studies to back that idea up.  NEVER. EVER.

something about art imitating life or something or other.  

I noticed that you completely missed Cain's citation that shows the concept that you believe "echos in the real world", actually doesn't. 

I also noticed you implied that Idiocracy is art.

So, you're misguided, ill-informed, and have bad taste.  Nice trifecta.

Except what Cain posted was about intelligence and birth rates, everybody else is talking about education and birth rates.  Depending on the intelligence construct you use, the two may have little to nothing to do with each other.

1) I'm not going to get needlessly worked up about your pedantries.

2) Re-read Starfish's post, and reconsider your response.

3) GOTO 1.

The most recent books I've read on the subject were The Bell Curve, Intelligence, Genes, and Success and skimming a few of the articles in The Bell Curve Debate before I lost interest in the subject entirely.

that was a little over 10 years ago, and I'm unfamiliar with any recent research in the field.

If I'm wrong, I'm gladly wrong and welcome any recommended reading that might bring back my interest in the subject.

If I remember correctly from those books, there's quite a bit of back and forth on this and may never be a consensus.

Intelligence and education are, indeed, not the same. Research shows that women with more education have fewer children, later in life. It makes sense to educate women for a lot of reasons, and that may be one of them.

There is little or no benefit in having a higher population. We already "won". We don't need more people to win harder.

hate to burst your bubble but because people who attain education breed later and fewer children, that just means the less educated and intelligent are going to out breed the ones who do.

Oh, Idiocracy is now considered a documentary source, is it?

didn't say it was.  dick.

but then, I suppose fictional stories containing concepts that have echos in the real world should never be used as examples when trying to illustrate a point without being able to immediately produce case studies to back that idea up.  NEVER. EVER.

I did laugh, but you just seem like you're being a dick because it's [EDIT] easier funnier than asking for data.

(which I completely support)

That post did sound a bit cuntish.  Not everyone here responds with the malice that you do, and it's not fair of me to respond to Cain the same way I would to you.  You're a cunt on purpose, I don't believe Cain is.  I probably could have been more clear, and a lot less serious and just enjoyed the  

:hosrie:

my apolagies Cain.

No way. I won it fair and square in that poker game.

But I strongly suggest you reconsider wearing that shirt out in public.
