On the Eccentric Alt-Light YouTuber, Vox Day, Recently Informing His Audience that He Has an IQ of 152

For the folks who are unfamiliar with IQ testing, a score of 152 is approximately three and a half standard deviations above the mean of 100, meaning that that individual would rank at the 99.97th percentile (so only three out of every 10,000 people selected at random would have a score that high). Pretty damned high, in other words, and I'm sorry but I just don't see that level of intellectual prowess coming from Mr. Day. I mean, maybe it's there and it's nuanced but being that I'm not picking up much in the way of nuance, either, kinda' doubt it. Kinda' doubt it.
