Smart People Drink and Do Drugs

Because, believes evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa, smart people like to try new things and stupid people don’t. Which would explain a new study that shows…

… more intelligent children in the United Kingdom are more likely to grow up to consume psychoactive drugs than less intelligent children. … “Very bright” individuals (with IQs above 125) are roughly three-tenths of a standard deviation more likely to consume psychoactive drugs than “very dull” individuals (with IQs below 75).

So go out there and show ’em how smart you are, Predestination-style. [Via]
