Smile Mensa members, r u here?

Just renewed my membership since it lapsed in 1983. OK, it's been a while. Any others out there? Is there a local chapter?
I suspect I'm not as smart as I was in 83!

Nope. Stopped. No hot flashes either.

I got kicked out of MENSA for being too much of a smart arse.

Like Mr. Marx once said, I don't want to belong to any club that would have me.

I know there is a Mensa chapter that covers TV.

When you renew your membership you should be assigned to the closest Local Group based on your address, which should be the group covering TV.

I have moved several times over the years and each time I was reassigned to a new Local Group. It will happen again when I become a full time Villager in September.

There is no requirement for retesting. Once you qualify you're in for good.

Apparently not. They just renewed the membership when they found the records.
