People should have to take an IQ test before they have a child. Anything below 140 and you get sterilized. I've seen some really stupid parents, and those are the ones creating multiple brats.

There is more truth in this than most people realize:

The population would die out in a few decades maybe sooner than that. People that have higher IQs tend to not want kids so thanks for killing off the entire human race with that silly premise.

Is this a fact?

No.

Try again.

We could do some kind of Logan's Run style society where people under a certain IQ get euthanized after say 30 years (should be long enough for them to squirt out a couple water headed cum sprouts). That would actually be a pretty good incentive to embrace knowledge... although it is kind of unethical and elitist.

Anyways my use of the phrase "water headed cum sprout" should give you an idea of where I stand on the issue. Definitely not for me, I like having disposable income.

Actually it is a fact. There have been research studies done regarding it. Sure there might be a few that do but not enough to keep a population going.

This is just the first article I found on it. I could go searching for more if you'd like.

Umm, do you know that 140 is considered genius IQ and that the average IQ is about 100?
I mean, even in the clip you linked to, the husband in the "smart couple" had an IQ below 140.
Sterilizing anyone with an IQ below 140 would mean sterilizing >95% of the world's population.

Oh yeah? **** those people. and their ****ty facts.

I was thinking "Awww crap, he's gonna go find some freakin article with statistics that support his argument". ...and bam! There it is.

My child is the best thing that ever happened in my life. I know some will not understand this, and I won't spew out any mushy gushy BS about it. There are too many variables to the equation of the how and why some people are just good parents and some are not, let alone the deciding factor of wanting to have children or not.

One thing I do know is that a couple should not be allowed to have more than 2 or 3 at most. These families of 5, 6, or more kids make me wonder how vain must a person be to want to recreate themselves that much.

I am aware.

147 myself. Last I checked.

I just want less people in the world. It'd be a much nicer commute.

This.

Hate kids. Hate the kind of people a lot of parents turn into when they have kids. I have no desire to have my personality shifted to accommodate my child. My uncle once told me that everybody supports gay scout masters until they have kids. And while I know that's homophobic nonsense, there is probably a nugget of truth in that your own opinions probably get subverted to an extent now that you're protecting a child.
