Single Gene Can Boost IQ By Six Points

Cammi Re:wow, people still believe in the IQ myth? That (199 comments)

I was modded down by people who do not know about the IQ myth ... it shows the lack of education, if any. To educate the masses ... IQ tests determine the "score". Unfortunately, most of the questions have little to do with IQ than with local politics. Heck, in our school system, when they give the tests in elementary school, most of the questions were about Disney characters .... Entirely irrelevant to IQ scores.

Hulu Blocks VPN Users

Cammi Hulu is a criminal organization. (259 comments)

Remember when Hulu Plus was advertised as "No Advertisements" and full series? So I subscribed. 2 months later, the criminals decided to add advertisements and still limit the episodes to the last season. So ... why would I pay so much a month to get the exact same thing as free? Stupid Hulu. Crooks, all of them.
