    NO!

    Propel, Propel, Propel your craft

    Ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically,
    Existence is but an illusion.

    It's genetic. Be smart yourself and don't bump uglies with a woman unless she's smart too.

    I'm sorry, but my internets are borked today, and I feared opening a new tab and going to Google Images would be too much.

    To me, it's much more sarcastic. [​IMG]

    My 5 year old sings We Will Rock You, and Cars.
    (in ca-ars, da dum, da dum, pshhhh!)

    He refuses to sing any and all nursery rhymes though.

    Oh, and he knows the Spiderman theme song too.

    I'm trying to teach him Back in the Saddle by Aerosmith, and maybe a Devo song or two.

    Then my work will be complete and I can die with a satisfied mind.

    lol

    Only let your children watch a television show only if you have viewed it beforehand. It's also ideal to allow them to watch shows in one language, then play it again in another. Once they learn to read, allow them to watch shows with subtitles, cycling through languages if possible. I can practically guarantee they will learn all of the languages that you want them to while increasing their reading skills.

    They didn't bother research the IQ difference between people with siblings and only child?
    If only child has lower IQ than child with younger siblings, I would ask for a little brother! And my son would be about the same age as my brother! How cool would that be... Like... they'd be both in grade 1 and one calls another uncle? Their classmates would be soooo confused

    Like almost many other "beahvioural" traits, intelligence (or one of many standard definitions of intelligence) is based on both genetics and experience. So stupid people should be kept from procreating and intelligent people should be kept from raising their kids stupidly [​IMG]

    but inheriting intelligence from ancestors is vague... traits can skip one generation and suddenly appear to another. stupid people can still mate, well as long as they kill their dumb kids and raise the good ones [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Of course this is true.
    I am living proof.

    Though I'm not sure what my actual IQ is, I thnk it's somewhere around 150 though.
