Not bad but neither of us has much sense since we both joined the branch that runs to the fight instead of away from the bullets like a smart person......then again that could just be bc no marine has any back up in them

We don't even have 457,000 members here.

Sebbie is a member here that is about as close to amazingly brilliant as I have ever encountered, and it comes across in just about every post.

When I have to Google stuff you are referencing, I know I am out of my depth.

bkt causes this effect on me once a week. C3 has caused this effect on me from time to time. As has Canebrake. As has a couple of other long time members.

Sebbie has caused this on 80% plus of her posts and she has a DOCTORATE Degree in Mechanical Engineering or some such science. She is the real deal and should someone want to dispute that, I BEG you to challenge her. Please! Please challenge her. Just PM me before you do it. Seriously, I will pay your next years membership for the entertainment alone.

If you have a 185 legitimate IQ, you would be the smartest man to ever post here.

And if that is the case, what the F*CK are you doing posting here?!?!

I was tested or gifted programs. Missed the mark by 3 points. It was 127 in 3rd grade. After football and other things, well it seems to have dissipated.

I've already had to talk him out of jumping from the roof with paper wings on his arms. I was pretty convincing. And I realized while I was telling him the stories, he's the only male in my family for at least THREE generations that has avoided that particular hospital trip. Yes, even me. And I jumped right after I heard the snap of my cousin's arm when he hit the ground.
I demand that you begin writing that autobiography so I can read it. (you can add to it as you get older)

Seriously, that thing could end up being a best seller.

You can add to it IF you get older. Remember THAT part is optional.

Playing the numbers game: most of us here belive in earning an income, along with basic human rights exercised by following the u.s. constitution. That makes us smarter than the other half of the population.

Of course, I didn't realize iq ratings went into three digits until now....

And if that is the case, what the F*CK are you doing posting here?!?!

Call it all you want, I've taken the tests and have been given the results. The last one was over ten years ago, and naturally I didn't keep the results. If I knew it was only on a 200 scale, I would have framed that crap, but I didn't even know. I thought it was much different, or scaled differently, and since the tests seemed so damn hard, I thought I must've done bad. It wasn't until I joined the Marines and people started going ape **** over my test scores there that I started to think maybe I AM kinda smart.

IQ tests ABILITY to learn, not how much you know. At least that's how it was explained to me.

Example of the significance there: my son knows stuff I don't know. I'm older, more experienced, and more formally educated than he is by far, but that means jack and ****. He still manages to teach me things.

IQ tests don't take into account any lack of common sense. Meaning even with a 185, you can still make a tool out of yourself if you don't apply ANYTHING, which happens all too often with me because of intellectual laziness.

They don't take into account being outside of a mentally stimulating environment. Being out of school, I'd probably test lower now. One person can take the same battery of tests five different times, and get five completely different sets of results back, even if their environment doesn't change much. MINE has changed a LOT.

Yes, I claim that score, as it's the highest I've accomplished. I also claim to still act like a dumbass, I'm intellectually lazy, my environment is vastly different than it was the last time I was tested, I've abused the living hell out of alcohol since then, and have been hit in the head many times, and had more concussions than I care to count.

Call it what you want, but you asked for no details. I've tested at 185, but I have to admit that I don't think I could pull that off again. It still counts though. Kind of "highest achievement".

And that's without even getting into the fact that with 3 tests I've taken NONE of them were even close to being similar to each other, nor were my scores from each. My lowest was 150.
