Never actually tried that worm thing, but one of the really cool gangs when I was a kid (pre 9 years old) made you kiss one of the girls! Wheeeuuu, that scared off most of the kids on our street.

"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." - Carl Sagan. Sometimes the claims aren't extraordinary. Sometimes the weakness of men's minds are the culprit. Mass mentality has nothing to do with obviousness or truths.

Heh. My friends who joined Mensa said the same thing.

I didn't read thru the whole thread. But I thought I at least should add this, perception is largely a learnt behaviour. Meaning that an IQ test written in the US may work in Europe, but most likely not in Asia. Of course, you could just draw the conclusion that Asians are dumber and be over with it.

I think there's a name for what planet10 brought up. It includes such things as social competence. I will get burned for this (though I shouldn't), but propeller heads usually score low on this. Just as propeller heads get high scores on IQ tests. And I think at least the latter is easily explained. Propeller heads are very good at abstract thinking, math and programming for example.
