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.

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'.

I Donnah why but Iíve been researching the Demografx of the Punning thread and have decided that there comes a time when one has to Don_1ís community service hat and pay tribute to the contributers of the most popular thread that doesnít have ďorgasmĒ in its subject. Yor_on thin ice putting so much effort into a chat thread on a science forum, but itís not all about biology and Chemistry. 4 Me itís more about broadening horizonís, Karen While shariní and not being Bored. Chemistry is just a bonus. We also have to Make it Lady friendly and not Grizel dangerously. Whether you neil epiphanously before the vast barren wasteland, throwing peppercorns at Hadrianís wall, or whether youíre just a plain old Geezer like any Jim, Bob or Sean, Beware! Iím at faalt, I know, for not considering the Variol age of everyone here, but give me some LeeEway. Itís haRD being a constant breath of fresh air, thumbs up all the time. I donít know how dave managed it. Or how that John Chap managed it either. All I know is that that dam oc lesbian kissing scene from quite a few years ago left much to be desired. Why did you have to, in a rage, od river phoenix?!? Now Iím just ranting, I know. But as it says in my bio, ďwizard hats are nobodies bizĒ er, later guys.

I have a pair of jeans.....
I have two pairs of jeanses......

or

I have a pair of jean.....
I have two pair of jeans......

Why do I have a 'pair' of jeans, yet I do not have a 'pair' of shirts???

I have a pair of scissors. I took it apart and now I have a pair of knives.

I also have a pair of tweezers. Which is very important. Have you ever tried plucking a nostril hair with one tweezer?

if I was demografx i'd find a humorous picture of someone digging a piece of metal into their nose to insert here, but I'm not so I won't.

Perhaps he should do his chin next!

We need a new thread here. Should it be in general science, mathematics or clap trap?

The question is 'What constitutes a pair?'
