Why don't we just make everyone take an IQ test at 16, and 'sanitize' the ones with under 150? Razz

I agree.
People learn from their mistakes. If the government or whoever makes these ******ed rules won't allow people to make mistakes, how can anyone better themselves?

Well, I sent the company in question a rather derogatory email. Hopefully they appreciate being abused ugh

I would encourage everyone to spam their mail with your opinions.

*The company doesn't even have a proper email interface... they expect you to provide all sorts of personal info for the privilege of sending them a missive. Incredibly arrogant sob's...

So, out of 7 billion or however many people are there in the world, you want to "sanitize" all but around 20 mil ?
Heck, that wouldn't leave enough people to populate LA.

Nah, make it an IQ-based caste system... below IQ 90 slaves, below IQ 110 police force, above that general "blue collar" worker population, and above IQ 130 the "elite ruling class".

Please remember that you are linking to a Daily Mail story there.

This is the Daily Mail who have a long history of making stories up about political correctness, EU regulations, etc etc. Chances are fairly high that this story simply isn't true, or has been distorted by the Daily Fascist beyond all reasonable recognition.

130? lols, no. 150. 130 is too low tbfh.

My problem with this story is it's on the Daily Mail's website. The most reactionary, right wing, scaremongering, "omfg we've just been swamped by 10 billion scummy immigrants" rag in the world.

And they're it's good points Very Happy

Well then thats not an IQ test- 150 means 50% higher than average. If you change the average, you change the definition of 150...

There is no standard IQ test. The most common one goes up to 150 while the MENSA test goes above 200.

Won't anyone think of the children!

Seriously though, le sigh. Society is getting to the point where no one has to think for themselves anymore, this is a definite case of regulations going too far.

I'd imagine the same health and safety rules are designed to protect civilization against child labor, unsafe working conditions, and the like, not a red heating element in a toaster...

No regulations at work here.

This was entirely the publisher engaging in CYA for fear of litigious parents.

So, blame stupid publishers and stupid parents.

You do realize less than 0.01% of people have a IQ of 150 or above?

I think lofty has lost the plot somewhat with the ultra-high IQ thing. Just because someone has a high IQ doesn't make them good for leading, you big nublet.

Actually, as a former member of MENSA I'd have to say you'd be amazed how many idiots make it in. The first magazine I received contained complaints that it was all a con because someone had joined MENSA and still nobody wanted to sleep with him in spite of the proof of his brainpower.
