    More like so they don't 'do as they are told'. I prefer women who can think for themselves and have high intelligence.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Sure; I guess I just misunderstood "jump in bed with".

    Keep eating your vegies and you too will find yourself sexually attracted to beautiful and smart women when the time comes.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Mensa is bull......... I did their test and turned out to be in the top 3% of the Mensa if I would join and I got almost no education at all.

    That's the point. It makes the Mensa members, aka "silly people", easy to stereotype. Membership in to such societies (especially "Honour" societies) is far easier than it ought to be.

    Either that or it means that performance on the Mensa test is not strongly predicted by level of formal education. I haven't taken the test, but I would imagine that very few of the questions are the sort of thing taught in school anyway. If that were the case, anybody who did well in school would do well on the test, so the implication is false in BOTH directions
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    IQ tests, in general, I think are flawed. I always scored well at them (which is pretty odd, in and of itself, actually), but I have noticed that (1) they do require some degree of context, whether it be cultural, social, or otherwise, and (2) the "correct" answer to the question is often not *really* what you had in mind. I do understand that no test is perfect, but something tells me that they could be a lot better. To that end, I really don't place too much value on an IQ score, Mensa membership, etc. I prefer to use my own heuristics and intuition to gauge a person's intelligence, anyway.
