Looks like this guy is unfamiliar with the idea of education as a signal of ability. Education can be worthwhile even if it does not increase ability: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signalling_(economics)

Note that private firms are paying more for, and preferentially hiring, university graduates. How would you explain this if higher education serves no purpose?

Overall this is pretty low IQ stuff.

I don’t get it. What’s the link for? Is it utterly banal to know that men have a higher variance in IQ? I don’t think so, because it explains why there are more male geniuses (as well as retards). In fact, I would call that fact an “undesirable” fact liberals don’t like that is nevertheless true—so I really don’t get the connection of “utterly banal” with the link provided.

Also, are you open to (sedated) guest posts from yours truly.

The penultimate paragraph appears to be the location of accidental truncation, between banal and scientific. Probably a link code issue.
