Re: Our President's Intelligence

Once upon a time, a long time ago, I joined Mensa.* Everything seemed to be crumbling around me, and I think I needed an ego boost.* As I recall, they had several ways you could qualify, i.e. their IQ test, combined SAT, GRE, ACT scores, etc.* I qualified under one of their standards--just b-a-r-e-l-y--and failed others, one of them miserably.

So, armed with my new MENSA card and my usual delusions, I set off for my first meeting.* It was held at a local beer 'n barf chain, Lums, no longer in existence. I entered.* My fellow Mensans weren't hard to spot.* Remember the original Star Wars bar scene?* (belying your friend's comment about pick up possibilities).* Anyhow...I hung around for a while, attempting bad small talk, and generally being extremely uncomfortable.* Finally, it dawned on me that--having just barely qualified--I was very likely the STOOPIDIST person in the room.* I left.

Some ego boost.

Re: Our President's Intelligence

Huh...Bill told me the place was packed with attractive, smart women that wanted to jump him.

Hmm...maybe he was fibbing? What are the odds?

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
