Woman Admits Sending $400K To Nigerian Scammer

Mean, Median and Mode. In a world of 99 uniform dumbasses and 1 genius, 99% would be below mean intelligence.

Not sure where you get the 50% from.

I don't know - I've met a lot of mean dumbasses and come to think of it, a lot of them were in uniform.

Frankly, I think that the average person is pretty mean.

OK, I'll go sit in the corner now...

Studies Say Ideology Trumps Facts

flimflam Re:The best example (784 comments)

The best example of this is how people of both major parties continue to believe in government.

Witness the current crisis, whose root cause is the concentration of power in Washington, D.C. Everybody proposes all kinds of solutions, and every one of them is to increase the power of government, which caused the problem in the first place!

I'm curious to hear your theory of how big government caused the current financial crisis. Maybe I just don't get out much, but I hadn't heard that one yet.
