The Genius Club

  Today, just for kicks, I took the Mensa "Workout Test" (they do not accept online tests for consideration for membership).

Entertaining no hopes of being a genius, Mensa had recently come up in a discussion of Jodie Foster... who I learned, after taking the test, is much much smarter than I.

  They almost got me with that sixth question. Almost.

  Oh, I'd also like to add


Drats! I was hoping for a score around 25. So I could gloat, you see. My score was not dissatisfactory, but it was not the delicious, alluring, dare I say, sexy score of 25 that I was yearning for.

  intelligence is nice, but keep in mind that there are more than a few unemployed (and even homeless) members of Mensa.

ambition + intelligence = success, generally.

Now where is the club for people with high levels of ambition?

I would throw social skills somewhere in that formula. I have met some Mensa members who were sorely lacking.

oh, and Happy Halloween!

  Are there any clubs out there that accept intelligent people, with excellant social skills, but who don't really give a shit?

*oh yeah...and also serve those tastey lil' cocktail weinies at their get togethers

  31. Unscramble these five letters to make a single word describing this test:

CSSKU

_ _ _ _ _


I was fairly good on the non-math stuff. The math questions did me in though..like I knew it would. There goes any chance I have of joining the genius club.

  Fuck Mensa. I don't care how smart I am... I wouldn't join such an elitist club.



Even though I could.



Fuck those guys.
