Erm, James?

A study in the February issue of the American Journal of Public Health indicates that "A lack of intelligence can really hurt you". The study says more-intelligent adults have fewer accidental injuries, although lesser-intelligence adults can make some of it up by being educated.

I did labs at Kaiser today and had lunch at Chilis -- chips & salsa and a Caeser side salad -- and two booths away from me was a high school girl and what looked like her grandmother. The girl was very loud and all, "like, you know?" and the grandma was "Uhhuh." She spent my entire meal time talking about the romance problems she has and how people misinterpret things and how this guy loves her and that guy does but she's not interested, but now her friend is, etc. All I could think was that I was glad I was too geeky for that kind of thing. I dated a lot in high school, but there wasn't any intrigue.
