How do you talk about dysgenic trends in intelligence without coming off as bespectacled old geezer in a tweed suit with a pipe in one hand and a leatherbound copy of The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy in the other*?
We need something hip, cool.
Everyone knows about the FLynn Effect. I suggest an alliterative counterpart: The Frito Effect, in honor of the hero’s moronic sidekick in the 2006 movie Idiocracy.
I will be using The Frito Effect to describe the awkward mouthful that is “dysgenic trends in intelligence” in all consequent posts. Let’s see if it catches on.
PS. Since I use quite a terms that are rather specific in my writing (e.g. handshakeworthiness, ROG, svidomy, mnogokhodovka, zrada), I have decided to compile a glossary at my main site (http://akarlin.com/). I plan to gradually fill in a few definitions a week, so hopefully I can link to the finished version in a month or two.
* Not that there’s anything wrong with that whatsoever.
