    It will come as a relief to those who failed to shine when taking an IQ test. After conducting the largest ever study of intelligence, researchers have found that far from indicating how clever you are, IQ testing is actually rather “meaningless”. In a bid to investigate the value of IQ, scientists asked more than 100,000 participants to complete 12 tests that required planning, reasoning, memory and attention. They also filled in a survey on their background. They (the scientists) discovered that far from being down to one single factor, what is commonly regarded as intelligence is influenced by three...

    Durham, N.C. -- The great apes are the smartest of all nonhuman primates, with orangutans and chimpanzees consistently besting monkeys and lemurs on a variety of intelligence tests, Duke University Medical Center researchers have found. "It's clear that some species can and do develop enhanced abilities for solving particular problems," said Robert O. Deaner, Ph.D., who led the study as part of his doctoral dissertation. "But our results imply that natural selection may favor a general type of intelligence in some circumstances. We suspect that this was crucial in human evolution." The study was published online August 1, 2006, in...

    Almost all political cartoons hack me off because of their liberal bias. But this one in today's Mercury News sank to the lowest of lows. It is so vile that it makes me ill. Have these people no shame? How can they live with themselves? How can anybody possibly have so much hatred for their country and President?
  • Secret Weapon for Bush? (Bush probably had a higher I.Q. than Kerry per military records)

    Secret Weapon For Bush? To Bush-bashers, it may be the most infuriating revelation yet from the military records of the two presidential candidates: the young George W. Bush probably had a higher I.Q. than did the young John Kerry. That, at least, is the conclusion of Steve Sailer, a conservative columnist at the Web magazine Vdare.com and a veteran student of presidential I.Q.'s. During the last presidential campaign Mr. Sailer estimated from Mr. Bush's SAT score (1206) that his I.Q. was in the mid-120's, about 10 points lower than Al Gore's. Mr. Kerry's SAT score is not known, but now...
  • Israeli MPs 'cheated on IQ test'

    MEMBERS of the Israeli parliament finished in the middle of the pack in a televised IQ test against groups like models and lawyers - and that was after they cheated. Yesterday's segment of the reality-TV series Test of the Nation had the groups taking the IQ test simultaneously, as viewers joined in from their homes. High school students, tax collectors and lawyers finished first, models and bodybuilders near the bottom and the members of parliament in between. But today, Haim Katz, a member of parliament from the ruling Likud Party, admitted that his six-person team cheated, sharing answers with each...
