JimBobby's IQ? 134

Whooee! Well friends an' foes, I've taken 3 IQ tests in my life. I'm pushin' 60. The first IQ test I took was back in grade 9 or 10. The high school adminstered it. We weren't supposed see what our scores were but when my guidance counsellor was outta the room, I took a sneak peek. Back then, I got 135 on my IQ test.

A coupla years ago, I took a test on the internets. There's an ad that pops up with ol' Albert Einstein's pitcher an' he's invitin' everybuddy t' take the test. I took it an' danged if I didn't get the exact same score as when I was 14 or 15 -- 135.

Now the CBC's givin' an IQ test an' I took it just now. Saskboy pointed the way an' inspired me t' take the test when he posted up his score. Here's how I done --



At least I'm consistent. I woulda thought I'd o' gotten a lot stoopider when I got older -- 'specially, after all the pot-smokin'.

Yores trooly,
JimBobby

How did your wife do?

Whooee! Ma ain't taken the test, Gene. If she does, I won't give out her score unless she sez I can.

Ma's got a little more education than me an' she makes a lot more money than me. That ain't sayin' a whole lot since I scrape by on next t' nuthin'.

Thankee fer droppin' by, GeneFeller. Anarchist commie libertarians are always welcome. :)

JimBobby, aka JimmyBob, that was fiendish, and I shall resent forever that you tempted me into that wicked exercise.

I only got 123. I utterly failed on the last section, staring at those tomato baskets and lobster traps and rickety rails. I can barely see as it is (I think I have a couple of years on you, JB).

The part I was most skeert of was the math section, but I managed a 9/12, some of which has to be sheer dumb luck. Figurin' out tips on restaurant bills gives me panic attacks.

I hope we can still be friends, though.

yr stupider older sister, skdadl

Skdaddler! I learn somethin' new everyday. I maybe ain't been payin' close enough attention but I didn't know you were a sister an' not a brother. Shame on me.

I found the jigsaw puzzle part the toughest, too. Lucky fer me, I got some special 'puter glasses an' a sharpish LCD screen Ma bought fer me back on my 57th birthday.

You thought I was a BOY?!?

JimBobby said...

Sorry Skdaddler, I guess I never really thought about it until yer "sister" comment. I din't think you was a boy. I thought you was a man.

I probbly only thought that on accounta the politickle boogeysphere's top-heavy with testosterone.

A thousand apologies, SkdadlGal.

Never you mind, JimBobby. I've been called worse. ;-)

Dr. Dawg said...

Uh...Jim? Same here. If skdadl hadn't posted here I would have thought the thing had been fixed!

according to that test I'm pretty dumb-in fact only a few points up from being mildly retarded. I know you don't have to be genius to do a PhD, but i don't think someone with an IQ of 90 (that apparently I have) could pull it off. I I must be having a bad brain day :P

Frank Frink said...

Well, well, well jimbobby!
Congrats! A score of 135 places you in the genius category.

As with skdadl, I got tripped up on the jigsaw puzzle section but still score just a little bit behind jimbobby.

Must be the 'BC Hydro'.

I did really well on my last IQ test. Jimbobby was in his 30s then and I was in the 140s (IQ that is). Now I am 127 (IQ again) and I rarely smoked pot. My eyes are bad though - yeah thats it the eyes.

Do we have to call you Mr. Sez now?

JimBobby said...

Whooee! Thankee fer all them comments, fellers an' gals.

I maybe done okay on the IQ test but I don't do so good on the cholesterol test.

All the King's horses and all the King's men, and/or a serenade or three from Sandy B, couldn't get me to take that darned test.

Still, if I did, and then had to hang out down there with Rosie, soon-to-be PhD, well, I'd be OK with that.

And hey, how good can that darned test be anyway if you don't get dinged extra points for not having divined, beforehand, that skdadl is a gal not a feller?
