Are You Smarter Than Someone From Hong Kong?

No, you're not.

Well, if we're going purely by statistics then you're not, but a case by case basis might yield different results.

For some reason I got the wild idea to plunk down $18 and take the Mensa Home Test to see if it's even worth continuing to try and think. The test got me thinking about IQ in general, so I checked out the Wikipedia on IQ scores which is how I found out that you're certainly dumber than a McDonalds employee in Hong Kong, and basically most of Asia, as well.

I know I know, you're dying to hear my score--well I'm not going to tell you. Let's just say I'm no Einstein. To give you a vague idea, I'm somewhere between Gump and Gary Oldman. I'm constantly needing to prove to myself that I'm not as dumb as I fear I am. The real victory would be to accept things as they are, not get a high score on some stupid test.

Not there yet, though.
