I smell justification of a lack of education.

That would only go to prove that people with a high IQ have no common sense

High IQ. You can GET an education lots easier than you can get those high-value talents represented by IQ tests.

Attainment of a good education without a high IQ is like trying to collect water in a sieve.

I'll take common sense and looks for 2000 Alex. You can buy an education and funky looks. But not everyone has common sense and in some cases a high IQ is very over rated. Especially if it has no humor or common sense or higher education. The looks were just for fun.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.
