hard to believe that nearly the same amount of people voted in the red/blue areas....shows something about our population densities....not sure what, but it shows something...

:rotfl: Why let a few facts get in the way of a good argument? :rotfl:

 

The Economist issued a retraction on May 20, 2004:

 

Clueless in St James's

 

Last week we published a list that purported to show the IQs of states voting for George Bush and Al Gore in 2000. Alas, we were the victim of a hoax: no such data exists. By way of apology, here are two very crude ratings of states' intelligence—and how they voted.

INDEX.3.gif

To give you a sense of why people familiar with IQ testing instantly scoffed at the validity of the hoax data claiming the average IQ in Connecticut was 113 and in Utah was 87, it's important to understand how IQ tests are scored. The mean is typically set at 100 and the standard deviation at 15. This means that Utah's average person would fall 1 and 11/15th standard deviations lower than the average person in Connecticut. Using the Normdist function in Excel, you can put this on a percentile basis. This hoax data therefore implies that a Utah resident of average intelligence would be only at the 4th percentile in Connecticut. The average person in Connecticut would suddenly be in the 96th percentile if they moved to Utah. Well, that's nonsense.

It's not true?  Goddammit!  Now I'm going to have to rewrite my entire doctoral dissertation.  That's the last freakin' time I am EVER going to trust a website called thesodajerks.com.

 

Next, I suppose you are going to tell me that there is no place called The United States of Canada?  Or Jesusland?  Like I am going to believe that!

Intresting that Minnesota was #1 in Math scores for 14-15 years old...... That Goes to show you what happens when you spend 60% of your states budget on education...  It's friggin rediculious the amount of money spent here, and still the fuckers aren't satisfied.. All they want to do is raise my taxes (both property and income).. They spend way to much money on bull shit programs and administrators... Fuck em... ALL
