I have long carefully avoided Mensa because so many of them were losers! 132
is NOT very bright. I was once invited to join the Four sigma Society, where
the cut-off was 170, I went to a meeting and found they were all computer
programmers "Nerds" in plastic jackets who drove Porches. I told them that
they could let me know when they got about ten other artists, I didn't like
hanging around with non-creative people.
To this date they don't even have one! My favorite story about Four Sigma is
this. I have a good friend named Ronland R,Crum. He designed the Viking
lander and was a major "Rocket Scientist". The President of the Four Sigma
invited him to join and offered to waive the "qualification exam"...Ron's
answer was: "George, I don't need a card to prove I'm smart, I've got a
little machine up on Mars going beep-beep-beep, that says I'm smart!"....
