US Adults are dumber then the average human
[link to nypost.com]

WASHINGTON — It’s long been known that America’s school kids haven’t measured well compared with international peers. Now, there’s a new twist: Adults don’t either.

In math, reading and problem-solving using technology – all skills considered critical for global competitiveness and economic strength – American adults scored below the international average on a global test, according to results released Tuesday.

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.

The U.S. had to slow its education system waaay down to keep the aggrieved groups from feeling even more left out.

Power picked up on the utility of a nation of imbeciles and now white girls think twerking is empowering.

They will blame this on education, but the problem is entirely racial. As a greater percentage of our country is taken up by Mexicans and blacks, the average intelligence will decrease. It's as simple as that.

Re: US Adults are dumber then the average human
Those 3 criteria are certainly calculated into any test of IQ. Are they not?

I don't use e-mail. Nor the phone. Don't subject my mind to programming via TV or electromagnetic waves which I may be able to avoid. I A4V receipts, which are the equivalent of toilet paper.

Spend "time" painting T.S. Eliot's Burnt Norton (amazing, though am still capturing it in botonicals). Took some magnificent pictures of Santorini and Capri while I was there. And having a party with the Sandman whilst lucid dreaming.

It's intentional brain damage. This "new study" simply confirms what we already knew, and what many report on daily We know fluoride, HFCS, and aluminum have a negative effect on IQ. Then we have school curriculum, vaccines, SSRI drugs, cell phones, and on and on. It's actually comical to see articles like this as though this is breaking news. Really? Hello?
