Here we have an example for things that are lowering your IQ and increasing your ignorance. It is a german newsletter in which the articles are written to distract from the real and important facts by placing them at the end or leaving them out completely. Its as **** as the german channel RTL (assi-tv). As an example, here is a link to one of their articles: www.bild.de/politik/wirtschaft/mark/brauchen-wir-die-d-mark-wieder-12542026.bild.html (It's written in german so I'm sorry for people who can't read it.) I recommend first reading the article and then the comments for full effect.

For people who don't understand german or are to lazy to read it: It's about the topic if we need the German-Mark back as our currency and they use this topic to make propaganda for the euro and for germany and are providing false facts that aim on making the German-Mark a bad currency and a economy-breaker. While researching (so I dont give false information), I found a pretty informative text with also pretty informative comments that show the fundamentlessness of the already mentioned article. This is the text: www.wiwo.de/politik/europa/eurospezial/euro-krise-ist-die-d-mark-besser-als-der-euro/7206528.html (Too bad it is also german so I'm sorry for people who would like to read it but can't.) Don't forget to read the comments of this article, too. Seriously after reading the article, read the comments they give a lot of more information. I want to apologize once again for posting links articles that not everyone can read, because they are written in german. Please punch me in the face if I have given false information.

At first I just wanted to give an example for what you have posted, then I did some research because I said myself "Don't post something like this without justification" and then this happened. It took me more than half an hour to finish my comment. I nearly had not enough space to write my comment.

Yes because reading fiction like Twilight or Harry Potter makes people brilliant...

not saying it makes people brilliant but reading is one of the best ways to get better at spelling and to expand your vocabulary. it's also good for general grammar skills and writing capabilities. reading fiction, particularly fantasy and sci-fi, is probably not gonna make you a genius but it is still good for you

I haven't seen any evidence of that sadly. Just in my own personal experiences, I went to college and have two degrees. One in Business Management and another in Accounting. I hate reading. Meanwhile I have tons of friends who love reading. Can't put books down, constantly buying new ones, on and on. Some of the dumbest and least informed people I have ever met. They can tell me why Game of Thrones on HBO is getting it wrong, but can't tell me XYZ about Current Affairs, Economics, History, Cooking, Cleaning, Mechanics, none of it.

This actually just happened to me the other day. Working on building a shoulder rig for my camera. I pick up a bolt and it's metric. (I'm from the US) I go, damn, need to get out my metric tools.

Friend says, 'why do people even use the metric system, why can't they just convert to our system?'

'Uh....You do know that we use the Imperial system.....and virtually the rest of the WORLD is metric right?'

No it isn't.

Yes it is.

No way.

TO THE INTERNETSSSSS. Yeah, everyone uses metric....and I sat there staring at him thinking....how does an adult NOT KNOW THIS? MINUS 10 FOR GRYFFINDOR. I can give it to you if I was talking to a 10 year old but someone in their 30's doesn't know this? Maybe I just know a lot but man, people let me down with crap like this.

So, they're full of useless knowledge with no application of it. :-/ When I find a smart well read person I'll change my tune.

yeah, reading fiction doesn't give people general knowledge about the world around them, but it is a constructive thing to spend some time on occasionally. I view it more as a hobby that has some benefits in the real world as well, it's certainly a more constructive use of your time than things like videogames and most TV Not that I dislike games or TV, I spend too much time doing both

I spend a TON of time playing video games and I think, depending on the game, you can really learn a lot from them.

Granted yeah I'm against reading but from the books I've read there have been two types of authors. 1 goes overboard with detail. 2 is lazy and leaves it up to the reader. That's why I like movies so much because in a book oooo it's your imagination....uh...I want to see YOUR WORLD. The one you're writing about so you tell me and show me your world. I don't want to use my imagination to see your world, I see my own world. Movies say specifically THIS IS THE WORLDDDD. I think that is way more impressive and immersive than a book.

Depending on your own experiences and knowledge of life, you may not even be able to imagine such things if you haven't had any experience with them to begin with. I'm 30 years old...still have NO IDEA what the **** a Jabberwocky looks like lol. From the book anyway. Saw the Alice in Wonderland movie with Johnny Depp and went OOOOHHHHH that's what it is.

movies are great but personally I just prefer the detail and better understanding of the characters that can come from being able to see inside their head (there are plenty of books that don't help you connect with the character well and movies that do but in general I think books do a better job). really though I think it's just a matter of opinion, just like different people like different kinds of art

Absolutely, definitely a difference of opinion as to what people like, my stance was just I've never met a smart fiction reader. Not saying it's bad or good for you or whether or not people can do it. I just completely disagree with "reading = no ignorance."

agreed, I've met a lot of both smart and dumb people who read books and played games or watched tv. I think pretty much any hobby works that way and most at least CAN be somewhat beneficial in moderation

Yeah, so with out an education and learning something of value, you can't really read much to begin with. Because If I'm a MALE and go to get the MAIL behind the VEIL, I can rest assured I won't let it TEAR, while I breathe the AIR with no CARE while I'm standing over THERE with THEIR mail only to find THEY'RE leaving soon.

Cause all of those things are spelled the same....

I have been reading a lot lately... ive read 3 books so far and working on my 4th one...

1. the westing game by ellen raskin (yeah, i know its something you would read in middle school, and thats when i found out about it... i didnt fully understand it then and i thought it would be a good book to start my reading binge)

2. ordinary horror by david searcy (alot of confusing words and had to google what exactly happened at the end, but once i read what had happened, everything made sense... except the confusing words)

3. something wicked this way comes by ray bradbury (great book in my opinion, easy to read, but painted a pretty good picture in my head and kept me interested)

4. the taking by dean koontz (currently reading.. so far, have had trouble PUTTING IT DOWN.. every chapter just makes me want to start reading the next one nonstop.. easy to read, but suspenseful as ****... im on like chapter 15-16-17 right now, im not sure but **** IS GETTING REAL)
