    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.

    IQ Range

    Classification

    140 and over Genius or near genius
    120-140 Very superior intelligence
    110-120 Superior intelligence
    90-110 Normal or average intelligence
    80-90 Dullness
    70-80 Borderline deficiency
    Below 70 Definite feeble-mindedness

    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.

    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.
