Bet they have to find really tough questions when they play Trivia.

Wonder if they dress like the folks on Jeopardy?

I suspect I'm not as smart as I was in 83!
I believe Steve, (SWRINFL), is a member of mensa.

BTW - Where are you, Steve?

Such an exclusionary qualification as determining membership by IQ, seems about the same as determining membership by race, etc.

The Mensa club is listed on page 46 in the Recreation News that came in today's newspaper. It meets the 4th Wednesday of each month except July, August, November, and December at Pimlico Recreation Center.

Thank you so much for this information. I found the article you mentioned.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to be the butt of so many jokes just because I asked if there was a Mensa chapter here. Guess I just have to polish up my sense of humor.

Humor makes everything better, and smart people can be funny as well...although when I tell a joke at work, people tend to take me literally.
