I would imagine it's not static; it must fluctuate a bit. Large fluctuations? Perhaps if kids are reached early in their lives large changes can be made. But I would think the habit of watching TV eight hours per day, never reading a book, or never doing one's homework would work to make one less intelligent. What do you think?

Why wouldn't it be unethical to do that? Give me some arguments each way and I'll pick the answer. How 'bout that? Just a few questions.
