Books that make you dumb

(image by gadl)

SO the social network du jour is Facebook. If you're a facebook user, you know that Facebook lets you publish your favourite books. You may also know that universities publish the average SAT scores of their student bodies. And we all know that when any scientist is given two sets of related data, he generates a graph.

On his website, Virgil Griffith has generated a graph showing the relationship between reading material and SAT scores. The site is definitely worth looking at, if only for hard scientific proof of what you're suspected all along, which is that philosophy students are idiots.
