Some Years Ago, there was a Mensa Convention in Sydney.
Mensa, as you know, is A National Organization for People who have An IQ of 140 or Higher.

Several of The Mensa Members went out for Lunch at a Local Cafe.

When they sat down,
1 of them discovered that The Salt Shaker contained Pepper
& The Pepper Shaker was full of Salt.
How could they Swap The Contents of The 2 Bottles
without spilling any & using only The Implements At Hand?

Clearly this was A Job for Mensa Minds.

The Group debated the Problem,

Presented Ideas & finally came up with A Brilliant Solution
involving A Napkin, a Straw & an Empty Saucer.

They called The Waitress over, ready to Dazzle Her with Their Solution.

"Miss", they said," We couldn't help but notice that The Pepper Shaker contains Salt &
The Salt Shaker – ".

But before they could finish, the Waitress interrupted, "Oh! Sorry about that".

She leaned over The Table, Unscrewed the Caps of Both Bottles & Switched Them.

There was Dead Silence at The Mensa Table.

Kinda reminds ya of The Government, doesn't it.

I must have been the waitress.
That was my solution as soon as I read the problem...

Now, put a dangerous, sharp, quickly spinning, router bit on the table, and I am clueless...
Although I would know to wear safety equipment.
But salt and pepper shakers? No problem.

I went to school with a kid that was a mensa member. The school brag about it and him, had plaque in the display case near the main doors and such. Him and I got our drivers license at the same time and one day he was filling his parents car up for the first time at the same place I was. Well luckily I stop him from filling up his radiator. That is all I got to say about a mensa member.

There's a joke I've seen showing one of them pushing on a door for all he's worth while the sign on the door says Pull to Open.

They've raised the minimum IQ since the early 80s

An old Gary Larson cartoon. I loved his humor and wish he were still doing his cartoons.

That's the one. I busted a gut when I saw it. The kid in the cartoon lived across the street from me. Out of a possible 36 score on the college entrance exams he scored a 35. He couldn't walk and pick his nose at the same time.

One of my favorites was a man putting vinyl siding on his dog house. His neighbor is leaning on the top of the fence. The caption said, What's the matter (name?), run out of projects?

Sort of says it all for some of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of the people I've known with IQs above 160 were a little off. Not all I'm sure, but the quality I see most often in high IQ people is they are very quick to take a concept or idea to higher levels of abstraction, and often fail to take their listeners with them. I am safely below that threshold.

I was tested in grade 4 as the teachers thought something was a little off . As it turns out they said I'm an idiot savant minus the savant part :grin:
