    I recall the words, “low-grade moron” being used in “Forbidden Planet,” as well: it must have been a common expression once.

    Back in the 40s before the PC police took over everything and hurting someone’s feelings became the worst crime imaginable there was an IQ system put out by the medical community that went something a little like this.

    IQ Range Classification

    70-80 Borderline deficiency

    50-69 Moron

    20-49 Imbecile

    below 20 Idiot

  5. Oh, thank god Dan. I was beginning to think that I imagined that.
