Odds and ends

A couple of interesting pieces by the same author that either aren’t written too clearly, or we’re not clever enough to get all the facts straight: IQ distributions, and the mystery of the calico cat. Bonus past fun: Larry Summers gave an unselfaware and hysterical MIT prof the vapors when talking about some of the same things a decade ago; it should have been a warning about how much lower the universities would go. Triple fun bonus from grammar school: “I leaked nothing to nobody” means precisely that you leaked everything to everybody — congratulations, you can now graduate from fifth to sixth grade! (Oh sorry, they don’t teach double-negatives any more, since that’s probably indicative of some kind of grammar or arithmetic supremacist.)
