    I see your joke and raise you one truth.
    Technically, IQ tests were not designed to be accurate above/below 2 standard deviations in either direction. For something like the WISC, which is the test most often used, that means scores below 70 and above 130 are guesses, at best.

    I figure I probably have the lowest IQ on TGP.

    IQ tests are standardized to have 100 as the median score. Under this is below average, above this is above average.

    Mensa can do the tests if you're curious. $60 or so will see you tested under supervision of a qualified psychologist. Then, if you pass the test its something like $200 for annual membership (I qualified but I'll be damned if I part with $200 for memberships when I could buy another stompbox :p)

    Enjoy that while you're young, because there will come a time when you won't trust that it will be a fart anymore.

    People that end a sentence with a preposition are traditionally known to have a low IQ score.

    Let's see.....graduated High School at 9.......completed my first Ph.D. when I was 15. Taught at Harvard Law and in the Yale Physics Department simultaneously by the time I was 22. Senior research scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab when I was 24.

    You know, typical TGP stuff. Let me calculate my I.Q. with a new Boolean Algebra equation I just invented, and I'll get back to you tomorrow.
