I was tested at 196 in 6th grade... I was reading college level in second grade. Do I feel this has helped me in my chess game, or ability to recall information from memory? Not a wink. IQ is something I imagine we have very little understanding of. One could surmise it is merely a declaration of potential, but to what end, in what area? I think it ultimately means nothing, but who knows?
Given that no one is really at all certain what it is that standard aptitude tests actually measure, using IQ scores from a general aptitutde test in an argument about a singlular specific skill set is folly and does nothing more than demonstrate the vast ignorance most people have about the purpose and limits of testing.
Exactly. It's a brave new world.

No, no, don't apologize for that comment, it was the one comment where you were actually on point.
Apologize for all of the other garbage you've flooded these forums with, and then cease and desist. Please.
No, no, don't apologize for that comment, it was the one comment where you were on point.
Nope, just the one. There is nothing to apologize for in those that I have not apologize for. Unfortunately, you can not say that.
TheGrobe is well within his rights to point out that your threads are basically the lowest-grade meat available. They're like rotting camel steak.
No, road-mashed possum, clearly.
Let me get this straight;
I think kasporav is much better than either of these.
Wait.... you're not windows7 are you!?!
No, your name is Anthony. Beater is a nickname deriving from the fact that you're always beating. (dead horses and off)
