When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
down around San Antone
and the folks are risin' for another day
'round about their homes.
The people of the town are strange
and they're proud of where they came.

Well, you're talkin' 'bout China Grove, wo, oh, oh,
oh, China Grove.

Well, the preacher and the teacher,
Lord, they're a caution, they are the talk of the town.
When the gossip gets to flyin' and they ain't lyin';
when the sun goes fallin' down.
They say that the father's insane
and dear Missus Perkin's a game.

We're talkin' 'bout the China Grove, wo, oh, oh,
oh, China Grove.

But ev'ryday there's a new thing comin',
the ways of an oriental view.
The sheriff and his buddies
with their samurai swords,
you can even hear the music at night.
And though it's part of the Lone Star State
people don't seem to care,
they just keep on lookin' to the East.


Talkin' 'bout the China Grove, oh, China Grove.

Actually, I linked to the wikipedia article on Race & Intelligence. Regardless, I divide criticism of the Bell Curve into two categories: (1) those who reject the validity of race & iq, (2) those who believe they overstated the role of hereditary.

(1) is a critique that has some merit, but I can't help but feel they can't see the forest for the trees. Denying the validity of these categories does nothing to help poorly performing groups. Further, people seem to forget that one could both acknowledge that racial differences in IQ exist and believe the differences could be ameliorated. However, this would require acknowledging that the gaps would likely persist for generations, and would require us to question the costs of allowing mass immigration from low IQ groups.....

(2) is a critique which I can take more seriously, and we've a new study that just came out; link - I've been reading it here and there, but I'm not finished with it yet.

My point was we see races stratified by PISA scores, both within and outside the USA, along the same lines we see races stratified by IQ scores within the USA.

But, you have to keep in mind they were the 'Doobie Brothers', so, a little hit from the bong, and, they didn't probably think about it. It was the 70's, and, we were all in a fog

I'm completely sober now, and, i still didn't catch it. But, i do know that, or did when i majored in all that history that i've seemed to forget

thanks for the reminder ducky. I can't even of a good tune for this, but, this has been buzzing in my head all day. Jimmy Buffet.



I just wanted to hear it, so, i posted it.

I would say the smartest person in the world has to be Chinesse because they know how to make that good money if they have enough networking around them from poor Chinesse. LOL

@jayshreddz: uh, no. We get the Chinese people (mostly farmers) to make our stuff cheaply because we ****ed them over with the economy.

Theres really NO such thing as race. All humans live on planet earth. The only difference in people from different areas are very cosmetic. Things like the weather effect color of skin and hair. Theres is no difference in intelligence. As far as music goes. Think about birds. Bird calls are one note, then two then three and so forth. It depends on how many birds heard the notes first. they just copy what they hear and ad to it.
So that is what people do too. We hear, mimic, redo.

So why aren't white South Africans black like their negro countrymen then?

Great analogy with the bird calls, you'll go far on here
