MaxxLarge: Reading at 18 months? Big deal...I got him beat by three.As for MENSA...whatever. I got asked to join during grade school after I apparently blew the lid off of some standardized test I didn't even remember taking. But I didn't, because I figured out that they just wanted the novelty of having a kid in their chapter, or whatever they call it. Besides, at the time, membership entitled you to nothing. Nothing except being able to say you were a member, which pretty much just made you a snobby, narcissistic asshole in just about every context.Not to mention that half my teachers already treated me like some sort of golden child savant they were afraid to touch, and the other half abused the hell out of me every time I screwed up. "Hmph. So much for the 'kid genius.' I thought you were suposed to be 'smart'?" Yeah, thanks.Good luck, kid. Growing up different is AWESOME. Nobody will EVER resent you, or pick on you, or expect miracles...then express disappointment when you don't write a definitive thesis on quantum physics before you sprout so much as pube one.
AdolfOliverPanties: That's good, but I would have preferred it in limerick form.
Livingroom: Don't even have a diploma or ged.
Lionel Mandrake: Oh, shiat. You've been tagged as "special"good luck, kid
abhorrent1: Oh goody. It this one of those threads where everyone comes and lies about how high their IQ is?
Ryker's Peninsula: 5 years old is a little young for a boy to get his period.
gilgigamesh: I lost all respect for MENSA when a girlfriend of mine bragged about being a member.Contrary to her own belief, she was about as bright as a stump. I just assumed they accepted her for the same reason I did: she was hot and had fantastic tits.
BitwiseShift: It's called MENSA because, if everything else fails, you can wait TABLES.
MaxxLarge: Not to mention that half my teachers already treated me like some sort of golden child savant they were afraid to touch, and the other half abused the hell out of me every time I screwed up. "Hmph. So much for the 'kid genius.' I thought you were supposed to be 'smart'?" Yeah, thanks.
