IQ: 147

Seriously??! That's insane, if I know what I think I know, you are only three points away from being able to join frickin' Mensa, which would put you just outside of the top 2% of smartest people! eek



Icould probably get into mensa because the IQ tests I took were from a place similar to mensa but for Europe and it is supposed to be stricter. I'm not that smart really It's just I can always do well because I'm good at everything they basically test: Mathematical skills(I am a genius of maths- future name of my manga) my vocabulary is strong and my english is flawless when I need it to be. Also my logic skills are really good. If they put stuff like social studies or history or art in an IQ test I would probably score closer to fun sleep iq score. haha. laugh

Oh and I just did that mensa workout that ares6 mentined and I got 28 but I didn't answer one question cause I didn't see it. So Bleh bigrazz

Okay put it in. Holy hell that is creepy and what the hell is with thaat avatar is that from naruto hentai or something yuck. Okay guys seriously lets take a step back and looked at this objectively what if our mothers were into manga. I don't know about you guys but I am not even comfortable watching a nude scene in a movie with my mother and if she wanted to read a manga or watch an anime with me I would rather watch porn with her (eeeewwwww). That's how bad this image of manga mommies is. Ban them now. Seiously though 29 is pretty young still so I guess you are okay heck as long as it's no female relative of mine it's perfectly fine. I hate science it is so boring and will never make me the kind of money i'll need to start my mangaka city. Sorry but I can always hire scientists when I rule the world mwahahaha. Yep never liked the idea of being an employee for anything. I just don't deal well with taking orders. Anyways nice to meet you. Hmmm...Are you gonna introduce your kids to manga? If so will you read manga together? Just curious. bigrazz

.


actually there were two oba chans earlier and shono is female and she's 18. But you are definitely the youngest female active. Omg a 12yo vietnamese pervert girl who lives in Canada! Am I reading a manga right now or something? Hehe we won't die of global warming well at least not me. Even if the worst happens we can always live underwater on neptune once they find a way to mass transport people there. Besides all that will happen is that we will be plunged into an ice age and humans have survived an Ice age before. Hehe worst comes to worst lots of people have to flee the northern countries and head for the tropics. Oh god if that day ever comes it will be so hilarious. America will finally realize it doesn't have as many friends as it needs. Imagine mexicans chasing americans back to america as they try to cross the border. I don't mean to pick on America but it would be pretty damn funny. But none of that is coming anytime soon. It could happen in our lifetimes though i'm not sure maybe someone who did research on this topic should respond to this and correct my broad generalizations and misconceptions on this. Ichiraku Ramen is the best. Yay. biggrin

Blasphemy. SAT cannot be used for a measure of intelligence as a perfect score on the sats does not require a super high IQ therefore it has a low ceiling compared to IQ tests also 190 that would make you the smartest person ever Somehow I doubt that as you'd be in the record books. What was your SAT score by the way. Oh and I really Should have put a seperate category that looked something like this:

Family Guy, Simpsons, Southpark,Invader Zim- (pick one):

I pick Invader zim the South Park then Simpsons. What I meant was more in terms of ongoing cartoons that are more geared towards children and teens rather than the more adult comedy of Southpark and Family Guy. Oh well. bigrazz

hey....believe whatever trash people write about themselves online. We all know liars are 70 percent of all people on the net. It's a shame though, that even in this place, people just have to put on a whole show case and display themselves like shopping products.
