Hairiness, intelligence, & college

By the way, what exactly is the relationship between "intelligence" and
"attending college"? As an anthropologist who has done fieldwork, I have
encountered many perfectly "intelligent" people who have never seen the outside,
let alone the inside of a college. It seems much more likely to me that
hairiness is correlated with relatively greater wealth in our society, which
will in turn be correlated with a greater frequency of college attendance.
Intelligence has nothing to do with either of these things.
