New Research Says Westerners Be Dumber Then They Were Before

Accordion to a Europe study, IQs in Western Nation not so good no more, dropping by 14.1 point over the last century (that’s 100 years in fancy talk). We here at Jack FM ain’t so sure thats the case, but here is how them “researchers” came to there stunning conclusion.

“We tested the hypothesis that the Victorians were cleverer than modern populations using high-quality instruments, namely measures of simple visual reaction time in a meta-analytic study,” said the researchers. “Simple reaction time measures correlate substantially with measures of general intelligence and are considered elementary measures of cognition.”

We not to sure exactly what that means, but it sounds like a bunch of nonsense to us. The results from those “tests” show that IQs have been steadily dropping about 1.23 points per decade.

We disagree, and heres why. Did a person from 100 years ago know how to use the internet, use a cellphone, or use a TV remote? Exactly. Suck it Europe.
