Not everyone plays Liz Phair either. Poor Liz.
Pretty sure she's in tryst's music thread.
Songs weren't in Latin, though.

What is the IQ of those who put up basic questions as threads...questions that a moments research would fully answer...laziness?...stupidity?...or puerility?
I don't know, but I'm pretty sure it's lower than mine. On the other hand, a fair # of PC users out there barely know how to use a PC much less a search engine. They're like people who know how to drive but not how to change flats, check the fluid levels or do the most elementary troubleshooting possible when the car won't start.
BUT my favorite is when you try to help someone out by giving them links to search engine FAQs or better yet the "Let me google that for you link" and they get all pissed off and act like you're some kind of f***ing asshole for daring to suggest they look something up themselves. I'd say people like that have an IQ below 70.
That's ridiculous, I'm 199.75 and I hardly consider myself to be a genius.
Can anyone give me a link for the next Mensa meeting?
If you belong in Mensa you should be able to figure it out from the secret puzzles.
Does this mean that if I have I.Q. of 110-120 I get a plus one bonus to my ability to detact asinine refrences to things nobody cares about, but if I have an I.Q. BELOW 70 I get a negative three penality to detect asinine refrences? Does I.Q. also govern my ability to tell when a thread is supose to be funny or if I should take it seriously?

I think that last one is just an unmodified random roll.
Oh, did I win?
what does puerile mean?
It's a synonym for 'jejune'.
Almost true. Jejune lacks the "childish" overtones of puerile.
Top-notch observation, old chap.
I thought jejune also had something to do with bodily fluids.
Perhaps you're thinking of "joo-juice".
... or maybe not.
