Good News or Bad News?

Studies have shown that the oldest child in a family tends to have the highest IQ. (This passes for news? I could have told you that a long time ago.) Unfortunately the advantage is only a measly three points on average. Don't believe me? Here's the article from the New York Times. Use it to lord over your siblings--or to potty-train your new puppy.

How lovely. I am the oldest child. And I can definitely use this info on my two YOUNGER brothers... *evil laughter*. Just kidding! They already know who the smart one is in the family...

or J. Doe, whichever is more favorable.

I, too, could have told anyone that a long time ago. It's really fairly obvious if you ask me.
