I worked with a guy once, introduced himself and immediately after pulled out his Mensa card
I quickly went to my wallet and got out my card
For the video library
Nothing against the poster and I kinda like that sort of humor
But that guy I worked with turned out to be a little socially challenged

Completely agree...and you bring up an interesting point. Does IQ change over time? That's actually worthy of discussion...a thread all of its own.
a number representing a person's reasoning ability (measured using problem-solving tests) as compared to the statistical norm or average for their age, taken as 100.

At least you write well.The excellently constructed sentences,use of paragraphs,grammar and other very important literary constructs are a credit to you.
Unlike others that have a modest I.Q. of 140.😃

Mensa? That makes you "smart"??
I read an article where they were talking to members at one of their meetings. The main interviewee stated, "What happens to your ear wax if you don't clean your ears? See most people don't think about stuff like that."
And he blathered on and on. I just answered the question. They interview other members, etc. Finally, to show how "smart" they are they "revealed" what the answer is. And it was the same as what I said, "It dries up and falls out."
So, is that an example of smart? I don' think so. IQ and smart do not equate. Like has been posted prior it is just another way of saying you're better than somebody else. And Mensa just means your certified! In what... you decide!
BTW, as a pope of The Church of the Subgenius I hereby declare that all of you are now Popes of The Church of the Subgenius with all the responsibilities there in (basically conferring the title upon others you deem worthy!)

How about posting a link to an online IQ test, one that doesn't require personal details or charge for the result, just gives your score at the end. That way all who don't know their IQ but would like to know can do the test. Also it would mean that all those who want to partake in this thread and didn't know their IQ before hannd will know we all did exactly the same test.
