I'm impatient, you know.
Oh yea...you're delicious and lean, but unsustainable and not to be consumed daily.

Steve:  For your safety and the safety of others, please leave this thread.  Or I'm gonna have to get vicious.

Well, since there's really nothing more to say on the subject of intelligence distribution amongst the professions, now that an official graph has been posted, I don't really have anything else to say in this thread. 

I think the graph you posted is nothing more than worthless.

You're actually very patient.  See, you didn't know that did you?

Good.  Take your evil bastard ass elsewhere, StevePiates.  You are a monster and I hate you.  We all hate you.

Maybe we don't hate StevePirates personally, but we hate the graph he posted. I do. But he does seem like a decent person in his other posts.

I wonder if Pilofolo is an alt?

I didn't.  That's good to know.  I'll be waiting here patiently.

I didn't post the graph, I just relinked to it.

LOL.  That's your version of "don't hate the playa, hate the game" I guess.

Dude, I was totally kidding.  I don't hate him and I don't hate the graph.  I don't even think he posted it, actually. What's pretty crazy is that his predictions about the distributions of IQ in he professions was pretty much dead-on.  I was only having a go at him for fun, but I was pretty impressed by that.

I think the graph is pretty straight-forward.  It represents the testing results for people of various professions.  A lot of people argue that those test results are meaningless (I'm not sure how I come down on that), but the results are the results.  There's no reason to "hate" them.

I actually really like Steve because he is a pirate and I think pirates are cool.

Yeah, I agree. I guess I just dislike the idea of making assumptions purely based on the graph.
