> Though it's arguable how useful an IQ test is. It's a poor metric of intelligence, it's just commonly used because all the other suggestions are worse.
I agree, One time in line at a grocery store one man remarked about how it was stupid they had "retards"[sic] working there. I told him "You can learn from anybody, even this so-called 'retard.' for example, notice he is treating everybody with respect. You know, come to think of it, I never met anyone with Down's syndrome who is a nasty and judgmental prick like you. Maybe we can all take a lesson and learn to treat others nicely."
Besides, he was doing a great job and was taking pride in his work. What's to judge? What if that asshole were in the position of being mentally challenged - I'd love to see him wear those shoes for a day.
What good is intelligence if all one ends up doing is thinking they're better than everyone and treat others like shit?
