Farm out . . .

. . . as the kids say.  Heard this on Quora:  The average IQ worldwide being 100 by definition, the average in the United States is 98.  The only country with an average over 100 is China, which means they need to account for all of the rest of the countries averaging a hair below 100.  I'd heard that East Asians scored highest as a "race," but I didn't know it was that distinct and measurable.

Oh, wait, but wow, hey . . . (as the kids are nearly as prone to say) . . . This just in---the poop du jour, as it were:  Pulling it up on the Google says that Switerland, Iceland and Italy all have average IQs over 100 (101, 101 and 102), but the rest of the ones over 100 are in East Asia as I had previously read, including Mongolia at 101 and Hong Kong at 108.  Wow.  I guess.
