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.

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.

knoxvelour: but is she hot?


Since neither the president or Clint Eastwood is here, you have your choice of three seats. They're all over there.

Yeah, maybe she can figure out how to set up a wormhole from my Barcalounger to the beer fridge - that would free her up to do the laundry

Isn't 12 a bit early for a girl to start her mensas?

Well thank your lucky stars this guy didn't show up at your parent's door...

Zon: And all that tells me is that you were stupid enough to join.


He was a teenager. They're not known for wisdom.
Obviously he improved. But you'll probably always be a dick.

The problem with people with an incredibly high intelligence is that they know how smart they are. It is difficult to engage in a stimulating conversation with a simpleton so they are often a lonely lot of folks. Then they start to feel bad, because they know it isn't the person's fault that they aren't as smart and cannot keep up with the latest science talk. They'll usually dumb themselves down, but even that can take its toll eventually. This is all just my experience, tho. Others may be different. Sometimes it's great to talk about stuff like television and movies. Plus if you have one or two high IQ friends it works out well.

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.


Probably because you have not yet told them that you made up their IQ scores.

I was given an IQ test when I was 12. I scored 164. Since then I've done everything I could do to kill those brain cells. I'm now an atheist, alcoholic dope-smoker with homicidal tendencies and a penchant for young Asian girls dressed up like cats and a deep-seated fear of mimes.

If I had started out with an IQ of 103, I wouldn't be the awesome guy I am today. Ladies, I'm available... and my Mom has a big guest room we could move into. It's bigger than the room I'm in now. Must like ferrets.

If she is so smart why is she carrying that huge stack of books, and not having some guy do it for her, in fact what the hell is she doing with books anyway in the information age not smart enough to get a kindle?

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.


As a former Mensa member and local chapter president, I must take issue with this statement...we didn't even get bragging rights.

I really don't see how she could possibly have qualified for Mensa. Sure, she's smart, but there's no way that 12-year-old girl can grow a neckbeard, and she's not even old enough to buy her own pipe tobacco. Are there other qualifications? I'm just going by what I've observed from people who have told me they're in Mensa.

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.


You can use that to your advantage in bed.

LeafyGreens: jeremie: jeremie: You mean like in his secret lair?

more like he found out that the rat race to make a lot of money is not worth it


Maybe, or maybe he found out that putting your mind to work is a lot harder than putting your body to work, at least in the short term. Also you don't have to chase a dollar to put your mind to work. I bet you could think of a few occupations which benefit from high intelligence yet garner low pay.

You've never done physical labor for 8 hours a day, have you? I would much rather sit in my office that think through things than have to say, bail hay all day.


Hey, why don't I just go eat some hay, make things out of clay, lay by the bay? I just may! What'd ya say?

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.


There's already a team on the case, trying to figure that out...

Mensa isn′t even the most exclusive intellectual society. It′s actually one of the least exclusive. You only need to be in the top 2%, which means that out of the ~300 million people in the USA, about six million would qualify. Big whoop.

The Four Sigma Society, for instance, requires that you be a minimum of four standard deviations to the right of the mean. And they′re not the most exclusive either.
