People with High IQ can't design websites.

Some pretty bad websites from reported geniuses.

I found my self browsing for IQ today (as a diversion from updating my website), after finding out that Messa is really for dummies.

There are dozens of IQ clubs for people in the 99.999 percentile and above. Mensa only requires a redneck 98% to get in.

Anyways I was browsing some websites by members of these exclusive clubs, and boy do they suck.

Which goes to show that high IQ means squat. Maybe they should change IQ quotient to Ego quotient :)

:) When you're done biting deejay, you can try to bite me too.

This thread has inspired me to compose a limerick!

It was widely believed to be true
You needed a high IQ
To put up a site
That looked just right
Now we know a low one will do.

How about regional differences? How do rednecks do as opposed to elitists, etc?

K, mensa member right here and the UK site does suck a bit, but is functional, is regularly updated and its pretty easy find find what you want.

And of course my own sites are fantastic. ;)

Strange we have a 140% limit in Sweden.

Still no job offer though.

I should have put the word "Some" in front of the title. Did not mean to offend the highly gifted people on this bulletin board.

After all my IQ is somewhere between 131 and 155, depending on how many beers I have before I take the test :)

According to an on-line IQ test, I scored on the low end of genius range.

Those tests can't be accurate. :)

They are accurate...its just that there are a lot of stupid people out there that throw off the results. :)

See the stupid questions thread kicking about on the recents posts list just now....

They make the rest of us look good!

But does IQ = Artistic? No. That's why high IQ people don't (always) design good sites - they are often very functional and logical though.

You know your a redneck when your website's topic is how to drink beer and fish at the same time!

No redneck here, but actually have a site about that....and a candidate for Mensa...

(Blows that theory) :)
