I contacted Mensa several days ago in order to ascertain how one joins their esteemed organization. It seems that a score in the 98th percentile on any of several dozen standardized tests is required, oh and you have to pay them $25.00. Hmmmm.... So I have to pay them to be part of the genius club. That does not seem to smart to me. If someone’s intelligence is in the upper 2% echelon they don't need a little Mensa card to make them feel smart. Of course I am an egotistical son of a bitch, who completely lacks any common sense, so I am considering anteing up the money.

However, in my case I have never taken any of their accepted tests so I would also have to pay an extra $35.00 to take the test, then score in the top two percent and finally send them a check for $25.00. Sounds like a lot of work, and money for someone who is unemployed but the potential ego boost far outweighs the negative. Then again the entire application process may just be one elaborate test to weed out anyone foolish to pay them money. Boy that would suck.

Go to Hell
