I have my doubts about Mensa. When my husband and I were dating he and his best friend decided they wanted to take the test. Sounds normal so far, right? Prepare to be STUNNED. They really only wanted the t-shirts, since you can't buy them unless you're a member. And the reason they wanted the t-shirts was because they thought it would be funny to wear one while they were out drinking. Any frat boys here? Ya'll know the kind of stupidity that goes on when you guys tie one on.
The punch line? They stayed up the entire night before drinking (of course) and made sure they had one final beer before stepping in the testing center. They both passed.
And then they decided they didn't want to get the shirts because (as Groucho Marx said once) they didn't want to belong to a club that would have them.
I've come to the conclusion that I am either married to a very devious, super intelligent, evil genius or that Mensa's standards have slipped.

My brother was one of those Mensa dudes. After a while, he found it was going to cost too much for a nose job and he had to explain sarcasm to them. So he quit paying dues or answering the phone or whatever it took to get those weirdo's off his back.
Just because they have the horsepower doesn't mean the transmission can handle the output.
I feel lucky by missing tat cr@p by 3 points. Talk about snooty!
