http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4250964/ is a section of the week in news, a recurring feature.  These idiots think someone’s I.Q. (which may merely be a logic/gaming quotient, what “they” (the experts, of course) said when someone actually aced the Stanford-Binet.  Oh, wait.  MS.  Microsoft.  Okay.  So they’re complete idiots and think that what they say is the measure of truth and intelligence.  They want ‘us’ or at least what they perceive as us…to perceive them as the measure of truth…also misnamed intelligence.

 

And as SF writers have been remarking for some time…the virtues of “intelligence” are debatable.  Probably the first truly lucid discussion was Brian Stableford in the Daedalus series.
