Number one: Six Feet Under( 2001 to 2005)
Fascinating characters, dark narrative, outstanding acting. This show is a haunting emotional tour de force.
Number two: The Oprah Winfrey show (1986 – 2011)
The show that led millions of sexual abuse victims to recovery, broke America’s taboos, made us laugh cry, and cheer & allowed people of all races, ages, classes & sexual orientations to relate to each other as fellow human beings.
Number three: Dallas (1978-1991)
J.R. Ewing was the greatest villain in the history of television, and personified the elite of his era with wit, charm and style. No other show epitomized American culture in quite the same way.
Number four: The Sopranos (1999-2007)
Despite being a fat bald murderous pig, Tony Soprano was the ultimate alpha male in this riveting and psychologically fascinating narrative.
Number five: Roseanne (1988 – 1997)
I know we’re not supposed to like this banned show because the star has been outed as a racist, but it humanized working class white America with humor and intelligence.
People talking in riddles all the time. It’s not like anyone will understand them anyways.

1. Do you know anything about the iq effects of sleep. Meaning if hours slept before a iq test can change ones iq score.
2. How high is the correlation between the age at which one starts to read and ones teenage/adult IQ?
reading age is only a rough proxy for toddler IQ & toddler IQ is only a rough proxy for teen IQ, so the correlation between reading age & teen IQ is probably less than 0.5 because it’s a proxy of a proxy

Pumpkin, I got a question, does going to preschool at the age of 3 increase your IQ more than it would going to preschool at the age of 4.
Pumpkin, would the verbal subtest scores be close together. Like, if you get a 11 on similarities, are you most likely also going to get an 11 on vocab and info? I also found this study on bilinguals in Italy, but the education gap is about .73/100, wouldn’t that make a significant difference in IQ, especially verbal since it’s crystallized?
Pumpkin, I found a study comparing Italian monolinguals to immigrants (in Italy), and the bilinguals did significantly worse. They have equal Matrix Reasoning and Block Design scores, but the verbal scores are way off. Can I use this for American bilinguals too, and especially since my first language is quite different from English? Also, say for instance there is a subtest, with averages of 7 for monolingual, SD of 3, and average 5 for bilinguals SD 5. Say you got a 10 on that sub test as a monolingual, would you still add 2 more points to the score you got, or would you keep it the same, since it’s the 1 SD above average score for both?
Pumpkin, would I add the two points?
Please answer this pumpkin. I will not make promises this time. Lol.
Pumpkin, please answer this question.
Rahul, that study sounds fascinating!
