Funny, I told my gf the same thing. She replied with, "If I was dumb enough to vote for him, I'd hope you would. Kerry is a piece of shit." I love her.

It's more accurate to say that 50% of the population is below median intelligence.

Intelligence is normally distributed. 50% (well 50% minus 1) falls below both the mean (average) and median.

I think they need to change it to "former Marine recruit"

I liked the line, "Soper, who will enter the Marines as soon as he passes the GED test..."

Uh, I don't think so.

In a perfectly-distributed normal distribution, Median=Mean=Mode.

True, but what in life is perfectly distributed?

Don't mind me, it's been a slow morning and I just felt like stirring some shit.

You are correct, but since the mode is statistically worthless, I ignore it.

"Jay, I live in the East Bay suburbs of San Francisco — Walnut Creek, to be exact. The Kerry-Edwards clipboard patrol is often soliciting donations at the local supermarket. I ignore them, except this one time. A very young, very pretty college-coed type asked as I passed by, 'Will you help defeat Bush with a donation?' I replied, 'No thanks, but I am glad to see some younger citizens getting involved in politics.' Since I'm over 50, I felt it was an okay remark, without condescension. Her reply was quick and chilling: 'Bush's concentration camps will be filled with the Jews, then the blacks!' Her eyes had become dark flint and her expression was pure malevolence. For only the third time in my life, I was left utterly speechless. [The letter-writer does not say what the other two times were.] I shook my head and walked slowly to the car. What in G*d's name had been poured into that young lady's head? Did she even know what she was saying?

"I'm voting (for Bush) like my life depends on it, and sending the NRA another donation."

There are indications that the Gaussian distribution of intelligence is not a very good approximation.

I doubt the US population is normally distributed. The country is partially populated through self-selection and from diverse poulations which have not sufficiently intermixed to form the randomness required. I think the demographics of a growing or aging population would come into play. Depends on what population you are talking about.

Most people are stupid regardless of average.

And there are also indications that it is.

"The Kerry Campaign doesn't have a monopoly on idiot supporters"

'Monopoly', no, but don't fall into that PoMo Mutli-Culti Liberal horseshit 'moral equivalency' game - it may be an example, but it in NO WAY counterbalances the huge amount of the insane on the Left.
