According to my brief estimation of phrenology-IQ correlates, podrag should have a very high natural IQ. But we strongly suspect that bad nurture can fuck up a good thing much better than good nurture can enhance it. And he’s performed extremely well for having such extreme problems with his diet (chemical engineer, and a good one at first glance), suggesting that he’d be that much better off if he ever fixes his health. The correlates remain in good standing and predict that podrag will enjoy an immense IQ and productivity boost (+1SD or better) in the long term by studying up to be his own specialized doctor and nutritionist for, say, 5-10 years.
An MT at heart, this ought to appeal to his sensibilities as the “failed melon” he perceives himself to be.
Yes, except that our leaders are globalists and universalists and therefore Everywhere is America. I suggest we call it the “velvet curtain” as in “iron fist in a velvet glove”.
Same old story. Here’s the problem: lots of people like to teach, plus it’s an easy default-type degree (like business or communications). #include supplyDemand, therefore teachers don’t make enough money without unions, aka artificial scarcity. There are only two ways to raise the quality of teachers: make the degree arbitrarily difficult or remove their incomes so only self-sufficient people will teach in their spare time. #include johnTaylorGatto. The second option is better in every way, like homeschooling, therefore it is practically impossible to pursue it as policy. Therefore, we should make education degrees more difficult, which will have the oh-so-lamentable effect of driving out the worthless sluts.
