    Research Finds Firstborns Gain the Higher I.Q.

    In the study, Norwegian epidemiologists analyzed data on birth order, health status and I.Q. scores of 241,310 18- and 19-year-old men born from 1967 to 1976, using military records. After correcting for factors that may affect scores, including parentsテ「竄ャ邃「 education level, maternal age at birth and family size, the researchers found that eldest children scored an average of 103.2, about 3 percent higher than second children (100.3) and 4 percent higher than thirdborns (99.0).

    I have a higher IQ then my bro, even though he's 1st born. He's also got his degree in EE and only makes $.90 more an hour than me, and I'm only an ChE intern. (Just adding insult to injury)
