A society for people with high IQs, which they define as being within the top 2% of the "general population." It is a haven for snobbish elitists who feel that it is their God-given right to belittle people who aren't as "smart" as they are (see: mensa troll
, and superiority complex
). In fact, the average Mensa gathering is just an exclusionist circle jerk
where people talk about how goddamn smart they are and how stupid everyone else is, usually with a glass of brandy in one hand and a copy of Aristotle in the other (monocle and pretentious goatee optional). Beware when encountering a Mensa member on the street; if he does not eye you with contempt and shove past you in a huff, he will shove his status as a member down your throat in a long-winded self-aggrandizing monologue.
Me: Hey man, do you have the time?
Mensa Troll: Why, yes I do. But I'm not going to give it to you until you apologize for addressing me in such a crude manner.
Me: Uh... what?
Mensa Troll: Begone, you filthy pissant. My genius cannot be stifled by the suffocating weight of your ignorance.
Me: Ugh. You must be from Mensa...
Mensa Troll: Wow, how did you know?
Me: I dunno, just a feeling...
Interestingly, the Spanish use of the word mensa (female) or menso (male)generally denotes someone who is crazy or stupid.
"No seas menso".... Don't be crazy. Or, "mensa, yo te dije que no lo hicieras"... stupid, I told you not to do it.
Sheesh Ninja Disaster, you have to do some research before blasting Mensa members like that.
True: Mensa is an organization for people with high IQs. Their requirement for entry is that their potential members must score within the top 2% in their standardized intelligence test.
False: Unlike some people would have you believe not all Mensa members are snobbish assholes. Also, their meetings are not just about academic endeavors . Many of them know that being extremely intelligent can be socially awkward so their meetings are a chance for these members meet other socially awkard intelligent people and do normal everyday things that regular "Schmoes" like you and I would do.
Famous Mensa members:
-Asia Carrera (famous pornstar)
-Geena Davis (famous actress)
-Jodie Foster (do I need to explain?)
A group of people with high IQs. Ironically these people also pay quite a bit of money to be in this group. There by paying to be told they are intelligent. Which ironically is well...not the least intelligent.
I passed the Mensa Test! To bad I am to intelligent to blow my money on being told what I already know.
A global scam which administers a test (charging in the range of 18$ to 30$) to see if you "qualify". It then proceeds to charge you a 52$ a year subscription charge. Multiply that times 50,000 members in America alone, I think you get the idea.
Whatever you do, don't let mensa trick you into taking their test.

I gotta hit the Mensa, I'm prairie doggin'
A group for douchebags
who really, REALLY feel the need to pay a yearly fee to know that they're better than everyone else. Mensa members blame the "general public" who can't get accepted for accusations of their organization being riddled with douchebaggery
, but seem to forget that they are just under 0.018% of the American population, and the 2% of the population that CAN join hasn't for a reason.
On their "Join" page, there's a cute
video of Leif Gantvoort telling you how easy it is to get into Mensa. He smiles, saying, "I will get into an argument with my wife and she'll call me an idiot -- that's when I whip out my Mensa card," proving to the world that he is a shaggy haired-walking pair of dick and balls
. He brings another fellow ball of 19 year old afterbirth
on the screen, who says that all members teach. This seems promising until dick and balls drops a load
on the it, saying sarcastically, "I'm pretty sure it's a coincidence her last name is 'Wise.'"
An Asian cuckold
appears on the screen, the "Mr. Mensa" of 2010. This creampie-...
Mensa is a totally unbiased organization that has only one prerequisite for entry, an IQ at or above the 98th percentile.
Often knocked by those who have no hope of ever being accepted like Ravenwolf B, it has many SIGs (special interest groups) that offer a change of pace from the normal beer-swilling, bleep-injected conversation found in most sports bars or water cooler banter discussing the previous night's Simpson's episode, the latest video game or wardrobe malfunction on some TV show.
I don't know that the world would be any better off if everyone had a Mensa-like IQ, I just suspect it couldn't be any worse.
