Re: TV show: Average Slovak IQ is 113, News Shorts, Nov 10 - 17, Vol 9 No 43

Leave it to the media to construct such a "test". Statistics are easily distorted. I'd like to see the statistical sample, size, sampling methodology, and the testing methodology. "Several Teams" probably does not constitute a valid sample. If you run around and collect all the brightest people in the country, put them in a room and average their IQ, you'll get a relatively high, but statistically erroneous number.

I do not appreciate the infiltration of Slovakia by brain-dead mass-market media game shows, contests, and other idiotic programs. Free-market economies are wonderful, but buyers (and viewers) beware!
