This Explains a Lot!
The next time you lose your keys or bomb a test, try blaming it on a virus. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Nebraska have discovered a virus that makes you just a little bit dumber.

The scientists stumbled upon the previously unknown "stupidity virus" in the throat cultures of healthy subjects during a completely unrelated experiment. The 44 percent of people who tested positive for the virus performed 7 to 9 points lower on IQ tests that measured attention span and how fast and accurately people process visual information.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

Saw this article, I gotta say... That scares me. Confused

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Psuedoscientist Wrote:Glatt said while he is skeptical of a virus can actually affect intelligence, he is keeping an open mind.

“We don’t completely understand the full implications of viruses yet but they, obviously, can impact the functioning of cells and entire organism with a myriad of outcomes,” he said.


We find one virus in the throat and therefore it affects the brain making people dumber... No! Just no!

Nothing to see here folks just another click bait article where correlation completely 100% = causation even though there is nothing to suggest a link.

Behold the power of the force!

I say nay.. I live in Emerica.

The virus is spreading. It reminds me of the research of there being a cat virus that might effect people and make them more prone to depressed moods.
