JayMan goes by the premise that populations in any area are static when in fact they are dynamic whether by inflow or outflow.
He then uses those averages as an indictment (or celebration) of the IQ of those areas entire native and descendant population as if there is something genetic that contributes to it rather than population shifts due mainly to economic, social and historical conditions.
he then relies on ridiculous data from the Middle Ages as if nothing has happened anywhere since.
Hence his conclusion that people born in Appalachia or Calabria are on average inherently stupid.
Some of the smartest people I've met are from places like Alabama, the Ozarks, Basilicata and Calabria.
Of course none of them were still living there.
Some of the stupidest people I've ever met are from NY or Northern Italy. They never left because they didn't need to but to someone like JayMan, these are outliers when in fact the average IQ in all these places would be similar if not for the migratory patterns and resulting brain drain/gain..
