Except in Virginia.  Jealous of the rumor that the Tennessee legislature had
defined pi to be 3 on the nose, the VA legislature defined *every* child's
IQ to be 120.  The VA school system subsequently saved a lot of money on
now-useless tests, and by most accounts the kids didn't actually get any
dumber.  It's also a great source of amusement that the Maryland legislature
sought to get even by mandating that all its childrens' IQs were 80.
