MISTRESS OF SCIENCE! Mwah ha ha ha.
(Actually now with PhD, but Doctor of Philosophy just doesn't have the same evil ring, does it?)
I've seen this debunked ... somewhere. I need DevonThink for my actual brain.
I also read a debunking attempt. Not sure if this data is valid ... but not sure it's not.
This confirms something I suspected...once smart people make enough money, they move to Hawaii.
Can something be true without being valid?
Don't freak my mind drlizardo! I like to think of the 'true' as the combined sets of what we understand and do not yet understand. I like to think of 'valid' as a social construct. However, I think we can swap both definitions. In Delaney's book 'Dhalgren' there is, I think, a quote like: "You have confused the true and the real."
And let's not forget Bill Clinton's explanation of W's actions in Iraq: "It's more important to be strong than to be right."
I'm not sure if that's accurate, but having lived in half a dozen "red states," I can at least provide anecdotal evidence to the fact that the IQ level "seems" lower. This is supported by the fact that whenever I watch the news, I'm always muttering, "what the hell???"
