Lionel Mandrake: Well, then. I look forward to reading her groundbreaking work in the coming years. Or not.
knoxvelour: but is she hot?
FirstNationalBastard: Lionel Mandrake: Well, then. I look forward to reading her groundbreaking work in the coming years. Or not.I look forward to the strides that will be made in sandwich preparation techniques and technology thanks to her work.
GhostFish: My parents were throwing a big Christmas party one year, invited lots of people and friends of friends and so on.One guy showed up at the door and asked, "Is this the Mensa meeting?"My parents thought he was joking and played along.Poor guy didn't realize he was at the wrong place until much, much later in the evening.So I'm kind of left with my doubts about Mensa.
aearra: 162 is brainier than Einstein and Hawkings? Interesting. My son is higher IQ than that and my daughter is higher than my son (by 20 points). Strange they aren't interested in mensa.
COMALite J: Mensa ― where you have to be smart enough to score reasonably high on an I.Q. test, yet stupid enough to plunk down annual dues for little more than what basically amounts to bragging rights.
libranoelrose: is brainier even a word?
Guntram Shatterhand: Everything was a competition she had to win first, and the sense of being recognized as perfect in anything she touched was of prime importance.

I would much rather sit in my office that think through things than have to say, bail hay all day.
Rockstone: Her math is just integration. Anyone can do integration. I could teach a 6th grader integration. You really don't even need algebra.
PaLarkin: Since this is England and another girl from the same estate joined mensa, I have to wonder if the cafeteria at their school fries everything in green oil that's safe to eat, but deadly to any of the cafeteria staff who touch it.
