Ulster University's Richard Lynn continues to alienate much of the human race with his controversial theories on IQ. This time he has hurt Bulgarians' pride by ranking them 19th (equal with France and Romania) out of 23 in his IQ league table of Europe. Only Turkey and Serbia lagged behind. Professor Lynn explains: "Balkan countries have lower IQs because people there are not rich and eat fewer proteins and vitamins." Perhaps he should have downed something nutritious before telling a Bulgarian radio station that he would be happy to come to "Bucharest, the capital of Bulgaria". Bucharest is the capital of Romania. But you might not know that either (Britons were ranked only eighth, well behind the Germans and Dutch, equal top with an average IQ of 107). Professor Lynn claims an IQ of 145.
