Chernobyl-damaged kids supposedly smarter, healthier

Boing Boing: Chernobyl-damaged kids supposedly smarter, healthier

This is apparently complete bunk, but it reminded me of an episode of Chris Elliot's Get a Life where Chris becomes super smart after living in toxic waste and starts dominating on the spelling bee circuit. From the transcribed script:

WOMAN IN CROWD -- He must have gotten his intelligence from toxic waste.
MAN IN CROWD -- That's the worst kind of cheating.
CROWD -- Kill him. Kill him.

I loved that show.
