    Re: IQ Myths

    I know Sudoku increases your IQ.

    Mary Wanna increases Creativity they say.

    I am really surprised that Ginglo Bilobsa has been advertised falsely by the herbal gods. Shame on them.

    Re: IQ Myths

    The people at this site knows watching ISU football increases your acumen.

    Sell those tickets with a purpose.

    Increase your brain power in JTS on a Saturday afternoon.

    It takes lots of brain cells to analyze the plays.

    Re: IQ Myths

    I could be wrong, but I would bet all of those activities are likley counterproductive to the onset of dementia, so there are benefits.

    Re: IQ Myths

    A lot of folks here don't know the difference between intelligence(IQ) and smart (what you know).... Just saying...

    exactly. IQ, intelligent quotient or w/e it is, just shows your ability to learn, not how smart you are or how much you know.

    and afterwards....


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
