  1. I notice that all of your examples are men. I believe some of the analysis that the Audacious Epigone has done agrees; as I recall he found a modest eugenic trend for men, though a dysgenic one for women. The dysgenic one for women is driven my education, not intelligence, however, so the takeaway would be that we should be encouraging smart women to not go to school. ;-)

    > we should be encouraging smart women to not go to school.

    As a certified Mensa guy, all I can say is: all that have received the gift should come to the conclusion that it is best applied not for intellectual pursuit, but for procreation.

    If IQ was 100% random, it's OK to use it up for discovery.

    If IQ is 100% hereditary, it is best to multiply it and let the offspring do the discovery.

    And I would hope intelligent women would come to the same conclusion.

    That apparently doesn't really accomplish much.
  5. Regarding the Idiocracy post, what’s the variance in parental age at first child and total children, especially at the 9-10 WORDSUM level?

    Good question. Will have to look at it again.

    It depends on the era you look at. In the 20th Century, breeding was dysgenic for most decades but was eugenic for the 1960s-born cohorts.

  11. Elon Musk should offer to be a sperm donor for hundreds of women, particularly in his homeland of South Africa :)

    From the picture it appears that he has decided to go with cloning.
  12. This is the reason why I consider dysgenics to be an overstated problem. I think dysgenics is being used by certain political factions as justification to browbeat people who don’t want kids into having them. Since I don’t like to be browbeated for any reason at all, anyone who wants to browbeat me (whether they be PC greenie left or social conservative right) can go screw themselves,
