Booksthatmakeyoudumb


I thought this was interesting.

A Cal Tech student decided to do an experiment where he gathered data from facebook, taking people's favorite books and comparing them to the college they attended and that college's SAT average of its students. Then he made a nifty graph illustrating the correlation between the books people read and how "smart" they are.

Amusing to me: People who listed "The Holy Bible" as one of their favorite books are "dumber" than people who listed "The Bible".
