I'm never cirrus, always walking around with my head in the clouds.  Does that mean I have a high IQ?

How do we know that the people creating IQ tests are smart?

Your lofty ideals are all I care about.


How do we know that the people creating IQ tests are smart?


Or culturally biased? Someone from an entirely different culture could score poorly for that reason alone.

there once was a woman from mensa
whose test didn't make sense
so the kids tore it up
and left in a huff
saying "no more of this now and hence"

Mensa is an organization whose members have an IQ of 140 or higher. A
few years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco, and
several members lunched at a local cafe.

While dining, they discovered that their saltshaker contained pepper
and their pepper shaker was full of salt. How could they swap the
contents of the bottles without spilling, and using only the
implements at hand? Clearly this was a job for Mensa!

The group debated and presented ideas, and finally came up with a
brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer.
They called the waitress over to dazzle her with their solution.

"Ma'am," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the pepper
shaker contains salt and the salt shaker..."

"Oh," the waitress interrupted. "Sorry about that." She unscrewed the
caps of both bottles and switched them.

The waitress's solution was so simple, was her name Simone?

Yes.

Her married name is Sez.

Her little boy truly cares for Mom Sez!

Mrs. Sez is far more important and respected by her son than his loving but very laid back Dad, Simon.

Did your fans get wind of your impending arrival?


Look, here is a sigh:-

***SIGH***

And now, I shall reproduce an identical sigh:-

***SIGH***

Now you know what a sighclone looks like.

In the making of the above post, I had the assistance of Kane my Spanish aid, or as they say in Espania, 'aido'. unfortunately, in the making of said post, Enrico split his trousers (US = pants).

He is now known as 'Kane the torn aido'.

I told him no good would come of rushing to get the job done, 'Slow down', I said, 'there's no need to hurry Kane'.

November is nearly upon us. Or rather, I should say 'Movember'.

Yes folks, this one is really for the boys, though I suppose there are the odd few females of the species who might join in.

ITS MOUSTACHE MONTH

A handlebar moustache may look ridiculous, but symmetrical eyelashes are even cilia.
