An Archived Managed World This blog has moved to

Earlier this evening (or late last night depending on where you are at in the country), my interest was piqued by an image Chris Sells has on his blog. I noticed he had an image of the “International High IQ Society”. Now, I fully understand that some people have given this a stigma of the “I'm not smart enough to be in Mensa” variety, but I still think it is cool. Out of curiosity, I went to the High IQ Society's website.

On their website, they have a series of free IQ tests. In order to qualify for a life membership into the Society, you have to score at least an IQ of 126 (within the top 5 percentile). Seeing that I scored so well on the last fake IQ test I took, I thought I would give it a go. First thing I noticed is that a lot of the questions were significantly more thought-provoking and challenging than the questions on the test mentioned above. But I gave it a go. Have some water handy because you're not going to be finishing this test withing 5-10 minutes unless you are Einstein.

Fortunately, I ended up scoring a 132, so I qualified for life membership in the Society. Yay! But, the real question is, why would any of you care? Well, I suppose that most of you couldn't care less about this whole situation. For those of you that would rather see two-headed monkeys flying around shooting magical fairy arrows at people, please leave now because I have no patience for your kind.

Now that all of those bozos are gone, let's have a chat. Why do I really want to tell you all about this? It's because I feel that now that I am finally getting into the groove with blogging, you are all my family. I don't mean that all of you are separate people (which you of course are), but after I while it's almost like I am talking to a brother or sister when I blog about something personal. It's kind of interesting, but after a certain amount of time, all of you have sort of amalgamated into one being that I feel I am really close to. It's quite funny about how it works when you think about it. I'm sure that any of you out there that have been blogging for a while feel this way.

Seeing that I feel so close to all of you, I think any one of you out there that is just a little bit curious should take the test. Perhaps we can be IQ buddies :). Sorry for the long, sappy, family time by the cozy fire. I'm sure I bored all but two of you out there. Perhaps in the future I won't blog about such mundane things. Then again, it's MY blog, and I'll blog what I want to, blog what I want to, blog what I want to.... you would blog to if it happened to you... da-da-da-dahhhh-dot. Yeah! 

Until next time, this has been Jason Olson and that's how to travel around the world in eighty days. Ciao!
