Cool, I've seen studies that show conservative ideologies correlate with lower cognitive ability, so I guess this evens things out.

Fuck that. Why bother with verbal sparring when you can just beat the shit out of the liberal pussies and take their stuff.

I'm somewhat skeptical.

His survey sample was

Quote:
The evidence is based on 1254 community college students and 1600 foreign students seeking entry to United States' universities. At the individual level of analysis, conservatism scores correlate negatively with SAT, Vocabulary, and Analogy test scores. At the national level of analysis, conservatism scores correlate negatively with measures of education (e.g., gross enrollment at primary, secondary, and tertiary levels) and performance on mathematics and reading assessments from the PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) project.


The survey drops out the college kids at 4 year and higher institutions, but yet measures them against PISA. I'll admit I just skimmed the methodology, but I'm suspicious that the sample, as a result, isn't being properly controlled for.

It would be stupid to put yourself in such a position, the liberal pussies aren't the stupid ones...

If that were true, and we all know it isn't even if only some of us admit it, then everybody would be a liberal pussy and the entire world would be one endless parade of balloons and unicorns. But it isn't, because the liberals keep fucking things up.

That's why we need action heroes.

Real men don't waste time wrestling Marc. they just set up a hide, dope their scope and wait for someone who looks like he's busy out-thinking those inferior conservatives. Then they remove his head from his neck with one round, pack up, high five their spotter and go get pizza and beer.

So, extrapolating out the usual co-variables, would this study then conclude that Republican/Conservative men, being more often high-testosterone men, are more likely to behave as if entitled to bullying and intolerant behavior, more likely to be unfaithful in their monogamy, more likely to be murderously violent and warmongering, and more likely to treat others in an inequitable manner? These are not flattering stereotypes to embrace.

... but sounds about right.

My wife went to Griffith university. A great place to score pot but not exactly for the quality of its research.

I invite you to Illinois to try it any time, Grandpa. To sweeten the pot, whoever wins gets to pick the next game to play.

Dude, you won't even know I'm there until you're lying in the dirt, face down, with your eyes dimming as the last breath of life leaks out of you. I have never, ever fought fair. Never. I value my own physical well-being way too much to let some big Mexican guy pound on me.

So "beat the shit out of" in Trippese means "hide and snipe from a distance" in English. Got it.

And the liberals are the pussies?

Pffft...This gun toting democrat was a decorated US military trained sharpshooter. I'm certainly not worried about some 60's pot smoking hippy who has to don bicfocals to shoo kids of your lawn.

Nerf gun technology has come a long way since I was a kid. When I was ten I thought that Nerf bow & arrow set was the coolest thing ever invented.

Come to Illinois, we'll get BJ down and make a gaming weekend of it. You can be the designated driver while the rest of us tear through all the craft beer and scotch we can find.

I don't want to brag, but I had the high score on "Police Trainer 2" in the arcade at the movie theater I worked for in high school.

Funny thing, my daughter and her husband just bought a house in Grayslake last month. I already know that's pretty close to Milwaukee and not far from you. It could happen.
