Um… WTF? I incorrectly state that Facts Of Life was on for 8 years. Duh. I know it was 9. Brain fart. Or, I guess “Low IQ Moment…”
The IQ equation that I couldn’t remember during the show was this: (And I realize I learned this stuff in junior high school, so it is very likely as outdated as the info on this episode.)
Here is an interesting episode of SciShow Psych giving further insight into IQ scores. I like that he refers to it as “a useful shorthand.” That your IQ can change is new information, I was taught that scores were pretty static… and that was OK because it measures potential intelligence, not actual intelligence.
And for your (racist) entertainment, here is Al Jolson performing “Toot Toot Tootsie” in 1927’s The Jazz Singer. (Thankfully not in blackface.)
