    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.

    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

    That's ridiculous, I'm 199.75 and I hardly consider myself to be a genius.

    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.

    It's a synonym for 'jejune'.

    Almost true. Jejune lacks the "childish" overtones of puerile.

    Perhaps you're thinking of "joo-juice".

    ... or maybe not.
