more evidence that the fact that i was born with a birthweight around 2 pounds isn’t doing me any intellectual favors:

“Babies who are a little bigger at birth have a marked advantage in terms of intelligence later in childhood, a study suggests.”

“Other studies have clearly shown that being underweight at birth seems to correspond with poorer mental development.”

“Although not proven, it is suspected that the relationship between IQ and birthweight may be due the nutrition available to the foetus during early pregnancy, a time vital to neurodevelopment.

add that to the fact that i’m left-handed and therefore supposedly more susceptible to death by unnatural causes and the future is so bright, i gotta wear shades.
