Are you smart? January 20, 2006 8:27 am

I had fun with this test. Got 16 17 18 19 20 out of 33 (without cheating) before I had to give up and get back to work. I think I can get to 19. Is this really a mensa test? I don’t know. But it is fun!

According to MENSA, if you get 19 + of these, you are a “genius”.
Only 2 MENSA members achieved full marks. See how well you do.

26/33 so far(without cheating). This can’t be a MENSA test ’cause I aint that smart. The real reason that I’m telling you my score is because I know it will make Doug spend the rest of the day trying to get to 27 🙂

well, I’m at 29 so far without cheating. I’ll work on the other four as the day goes on.

29. This thing is out there for the ad revenue. I quit and found that of the remaining 4, 2 are specific to foreign sports, one was biology, and one was patriotic. If I gave it another week, I may have gotten the biology and patriotic ones.

I got 23 out of 30 within the time limit and feel damn good about it.
