aw, poor wittle baby.  It was you who launched into the ad hominems, and
when you got the same thing in kind, you cried, cried, cried.

If you do it again, you'll get the same thing back.

In the event you're prepared to get back to the subject at hand, why don't
you critique the following statement:

"I'm female, and I was a numerical mathematics major in college. My IQ
tested off the scale. So much for your theories" about the correlation
between brain size and GRE scores for millions of test takers.

What do you think of this statement?  Do you see the flaw?  Is there
anything contradictory about it?
