I dislike IQ discussions in general, largely because the people who are so
proud of their "high IQ" don't ever seem to do much beyond carnival sideshow
games (e.g. Mensa). Useless intelligence. The *really* smart people are
actually doing stuff and are simply too busy to tell you how smart they
actually are...
