FredOnEverything про покрутение Мексики, IQ и разницу приоритетов - полуушедший на пенсию американский журналист военно-криминального направления, заставший еще Вьетнам, а сейчас живущий в Мексике с мексиканской женой и дочкой. Иногда интересно пишет. Вот тут про то, как меняется на глазах Мексика - бабло приходит, мачизм уходит, как сильно отличаются южноевропейская и североевропейская культуры, и что IQ - какая-то странная штука, которая сама в себе запутывается.

“Fred: Interestingly enough, Mexico does better than Argentina. Wait a minute, isn't Mexico majority mestizo/Indian and Argentina 90+ percent white?? And black Trinidad and Tobago outscores Argentina as well as countries with substantial white populations (Brazil and Colombia). Italy, despite the drag from its southern regions, is outscoring Luxembourg and Austria. And Dubai (weren't the Arabs supposed by the in 80 range for IQs?) is on par with Russia and beats lily-white Serbia and Bulgaria.
Further, in Asian countries kids spend a huge percentage of their after school hours in various test prep and tuition classes. If they were genetically more intelligent, why on earth would they have to study more than kids in other parts of world? In other words, shouldn't they study less than or as much as the other kids and still have higher test scores?”
