Epic statistics fail.

Idiot = IQ of 0 to 25. That's 5 standard deviations below the mean, although I seriously doubt the curve is properly bell shaped at that point.

2. I'm wondering idly if Trump can spell 'idiot'.

Really?
Got some evidence?

Or is this just another liberal piece of bullshit that TFT that applaud you for posting?

IQ is normalized so that 100 is the mean/median. The standard deviation is typically normalized to be 15 or so. For a "bell curve" (i.e. normally distributed distribution), roughly 68% of the data falls within one standard deviation of the mean. Which means roughly 32% fall outside the mean, 16% on each side.

So, if one defines "an idiot" as having an IQ that is more than one standard deviation below the mean, then by statistical definition, roughly 16% are idiots.

Actually, historically an imbecile is between 25 to 49. Historically, there is no use of the term idiot and IQ scores.

So, it really depends on what one means by "idiot".

I've got \$20 that his response will be, "Person. Man. Woman. Camera. TV".

I think the technical term is "trumpsucker".

8. Remember, Trump's math skills are on a par with his spelling skills: those of a lazy-ass 7th grader who does book reports by reading the first and last pages of a book.

I just noticed something about this list. Not only do the words go together, but the order is most "natural." (Shuffle it to TV, Woman, Camera, Person, Man and I think it would be harder. TV, Cricket, Camera, April, Man would be harder still.)

Is it possible the examiner chose an easy list to suck up to the CinC? Or that the list that CinC repeated publicly was not in the tested order?

10. US intelligence does not exist on a normal bell curve.

It exists on a curve severely skewed to the left.

Many more idiots than reasonable people.

Capitalism needs many many idiots to do the hard work and creates them.
