Mensa

June 30, 2010

A little while ago a friend, in all seriousness, asked me if he should join Mensa. This guy is very smart and would have no trouble getting in, but, as you can see, he is also an idiot.

What kind of jackass do you have to be to join a club for self declared smart people, not just smart but the top 2% of the worlds population, as measured by your SAT score. They don’t even spend their time battling super villains or solving the Earth’s pressing problems. Instead, the organization pitches itself as some sort of Shriners club for smarty pants; members get social benefits, intellectual stimulation, dating, and god knows what else. And I’m sure there must also be a magazine, filled with challenging and stimulating articles and syndicated columns from the likes of Marilyn vos Savant, the smartest person in the world. Apparently she holds the highest IQ ever, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records, and you can’t do better than the Guinness Book of World Records. Her column appears in parade, or at least used to, and she would answer questions like, which is heavier a pound of feathers or a pound of lead?

    I remember doing acid before taking my SAT’s and trying to make a design with all the fill in the dots. After I got my score, my father suggested I find work.

    P.S. Marilyn vos Savant is a whore.
