I.Q. test are slightly weighted to those with better vocabularies.

Also listen to some teeny bopper rock star from UK and they know their geography without even trying, not because they care about it but just because of a more thorough (well rounded) education in general.

And my personal shame is when someone posting on the internet apologizes because English is not their native tongue but they have better grammar than me! It happens far too often. I think it is just a matter of my absorbing the various language shortcuts people take on the internet and truly forgetting how to write properly. I should know better but I doubt this generation coming up will even realize they should be ashamed.
