    Rich -- I agree with you that this is, if true, an interesting fact.
    Whether or not it is actually true might be debated -- IQ tests vary
    a great deal across cultures and, after all, are generally useful for
    only two things:
    (1) to identify areas in the education of a child where remedial
    teaching would be useful (this is why they were invented in the first
    place), and
    (2) to predict how well a person taking the test will perform if he
    does it again.

    There is a good deal of evidence and argument to suggest this. See
