Well about 14% of people living in Italy speak French but other than that, I don't know what else I can give her for that.
It just seemed to me to be ironic. The girlfriend snorting at the idea and responding degradingly just seemed ironic, trying to be the smart one about it...while actually making a fool of herself. If you disagree, you know what? That's fine. This is the internet and you're entitled to your opinion (as long as it doesn't suck, objectively)
Agree with 75. She didn't just state that he shouldn't go to Italy, she snorted and scoffed at the the idea, meaning it's pretty obvious that she, of all people, thought OP stupid. Irony is about expectations and opposite. OPs girlfriend is the last person you'd expect to be mocking others but I'm pretty sure that's what happened.
She must be really pretty, because you obviously didn't pick her for her high IQ.
74, IQ and knowledge are really closely related to one another. Your IQ describes the amount of knowledge you can gather and the speed at which you do this. So for almost everyone above the age of 12, an obvious correlation has been established between the two. Now, granted, a high IQ does not mean that the knowledge you acquire is broad and covering many topics. It could be very specific and only about a field of work that you enjoy. However, knowing that Italians don't speak French is something that every mildly intelligent person knows, as long as they've at least heard of the existence of the two countries.
They are really not closely related. IQ tests are all about logic. Einstein was famously unable to answer the question 'what is the speed of sound in air?' in a general knowledge quiz and his IQ was extremely high. Although it's unlikely this is the case for her, it may have just not been something she has come across. Like Switzerland for example does not speak Suiss but mainly a mixture of French, Italian and German so it's really not that awful a mistake. She may not have had the best education in the world or a background where she could regularly access a tv which is where many people learn more about other countries. One (however big) gap in knowledge does not equal a low IQ.
