MEN are more intelligent than women, new research claims.

Two leading scientists - both men - say male IQs are 3.63 points higher than females.

Psychologist John Philippe Rushton said this explains the "glass

Then why is this male dominated world so screwed up?

How about adding a question like this to the test:
 
If a male animal looks at your hot chick lewdly do you:
  1) Club him over the head?
  2) Get all your friends to club him and all his friends over the head?
  3) Get your country to club him and his country over the head?
  4) Groom each other and call it a day?

I know a case when the chick wanted her boyfriend to do ing about it.  He didn't want to, but she insisted, so he went.  He went and was killed by the male animal with a bullet in his head.

See that's the thing isn't it?

All the men and women born in, say 1976, have on average the same intelligent. But some portion of those men went out (or were convinced to by their gf's) and got themselves killed.

Hence those men are who are left are more intelligent (on average). Those numbers are exactly what one would expect (in violent cultures at least) - cause the dead don't count.

The solution is obviously to kill off more women in the correct portions. (But when men try to do that, there's this whole kit and kabootle against "serial killers" and "wife-beaters" and stuff. Jeez.)

Men already kill a lot of women. Maybe it's just the smart ones that get killed.

Are speaking of the crumpled bodies of the murdered women? Or something else?

Just talking about the OP, I'm not really up for murdering women. I love women

Are men cleverer than women?  By asking the question, I believe you're also answering it. :P
Permalink What are you, STUPID?

Dude, the only men who can safely answer that question are gay.  The straight men don't dare answer it if they ever want to have sexual relations with a woman who doesn't charge by the favor.

""Measuring intelligence is not the same as measuring length or temperature." Mr Smithers, head of education at the University of Buckingham, said tests could be constructed to have certain outcomes and men and women have different strengths."

<heh. heh-heh. Smithers>  I'm reading this in Smithers' voice.

In any case, there are different types of intelligence.

"ARE MEN REALLY CLEVERER THAN WOMEN?"

Going by base stats, yes. However, our genital equipment adds modifiers of +15 STR, -10 INT, which changes the equation somewhat.

Besides, women also have the "Flash Boobies" ability (no cooldown) which has a 70% chance to decrease a man's intelligence by 20% (Improved "Flash Boobies" increases the effect to 35%).

So the real answer would be that it's situation dependent on the whole.

The article referred to at the bottom of this page would suggest otherwise:
http://pewresearch.org/obdeck/?ObDeckID=58

"A team of Arizona State University psychologists find that men performed better on tests of creativity after viewing photos of attractive women, imagining short-term liaisons or long-term relationships, but women were more creative only when they imagined devoted long-term partners."

"Honey, I'm stalled on this next story.  Could you flash your tits again?"

I see that getting laid is clearly the key to overcoming writer's block.

John Philippe Rushton is a fucking embarrassment to Canada (and to the University of Western Ontario). He's the one who caused quite a stink a decade and a half back when he came out with his `brilliant' study declaring that Asians are the master race, with whites trailing behind, and blacks holding up the rear (wait...wasn't that survivor last night?).

The problem is that his study was pure shit. For instance he masterfully decided that penis size was inversely equated with intelligence...I'm not saying that he found a correlation, but that he simply concluded upon that fact, and then used it to support his other conclusions.

De Bono wrote a book called "tactics", in there he discusses the relationship between IQ and success. It's quite a nice argument.
