    Do you think national IQ is falling?

    Watching the news is leading me to believe we're on the down escalator.

    I don't think IQ is falling, I think it's the schools, and people are mostly lazy.

    That's saying it nicely. I watch the news and honestly believe that intelligence has taken the same course as the Titanic.

    IQ is climbing here. But the number of people using it? Totally another question.

    It is. However, it would go back up again if Joe Biden went to Canada.

    No: I think it's probably the same. That being the human race has never really been all that smart as a species. The only thing that has changed is information flows easier than it ever has been before.

    How many of yall (those of us who grew up before cameras in phones) had Hold my beer watch this moments that never happened since there is no evidence?
