Quote from FuN!

IQ: 40 (I shit you not this is what I got on an IQ test they gave me in high school)
Yeah, well, they were lying. The following is from wikipedia:

Quote from Wiki

IQ score ranges (from DSM-IV):
* mild mental disability: IQ 5055 to 70; children require mild support; formally called "Educable Mentally Retarded".
* moderate disability: IQ 3540 to 5055; children require moderate supervision and assistance; formally called "Trainable Mentally Retarded".
* severe mental disability: IQ 2025 to 3540; can be taught basic life skills and simple tasks with supervision.
* profound mental disability: IQ below 2025; usually caused by a neurological condition; require constant care.

You wouldn't be able to write coherent sentences if your IQ was 40. So the test was garbage.

Maybe he mixed up 40% tile with 40 IQ? I know when I got my IQ checked, they also gave me the percentage I was "located" at compared to others my age.

Gender: female.
Age: According to my father, I will be 14 in 26 hours and approximatly 49 minutes. According to the doctors, I will be 14 in 26 hours and about 38 minutes. I was born around midnight. Doctors won. Obviously. But every year, my father gives me a choice for when I want my birthday to be. All this is according to the time on my laptop.
Country/Continent: Canada/North America.
Race: French/English/Swiss, but I don't have the same accents and I don't speak or understand Sweedish.
Main Personality Traits: I'm not very good at describing myself, but if I start writing about it, I'll want to write paragraphs on my entire life and then I'll get mad at myself because it's too long and I wasn't able to fit everything. By that time, I would have given up and been very disapointed. I would rather explain everything in person so that I can go on, and on, and on. Good answer? Long story short. Even this has many holes.
IQ: I got my IQ tested 5 years ago. At that time it was at 137 (97% tile). Now I have better grades then back then.
Otaku or not: That depends on your definition.
Favourite food: It depends on my moods.
Height: 5 feet and 4 inches. My growth spurt came early. According to my pedeatrician I won't get any taller than this. So sad.
Eye Color: Green, brown, and blue. I have my father's eyes.
Hair Color: Blond, brownish, and a tint of red.
Favourite band/musician: I don't particularly have one. I just pick out songs a bit everywhere. But if I would have to pick 1 or 2 that I like most songs of, it would be Queen and AC/DC.
Favourite English Tv Show: I don't watch T.V. anymore.
Favourite Movie: English? Honestly? I don't know. I watch a movie once and that's it for me. The movie's very lucky if I watch it more often. Then it would become a favorite, but you would still have to jog my memory. There are too many stories in my head.
Favourite English Cartoon: Scooby-Doo and Batman, though I haven't watched them in a long time, I'm sure I would still love them!
Most Visited Website:
Favourite Actress : Don't have one.
Favourite Actor: Same as previous.
How many Siblings: 1 younger sister.

You sir, are awesome. I want to be like that in 14 years, except not 200 lbs and I doubt even 14 years will get me as big as a 32" waist. And obviously I won't be married that long, and my kid will be 14. But yes, wife, good job, wonderful kid, anime/manga, being a nerd. You give me hope.
