"I can possibly pass the Mensa IQ test..."
Ive done the supervised exams and although there's a bit more pressure (like 2 minute time limits for some sections!) I faired a bit better than one the one above.
Some more puzzles at British Mensa:

Also FWIW, I used to be a member of Mensa. I stopped being a
dues paying member many years ago.
IIRC, one simply needs to score in the top 2 percent of a general
intelligence test to qualify for membership. So 1 in every
50 people on average qualifies; one doesn't need to be a
"super genius" to get in -- rather just "gifted", as many here
Also, while many likely imagine Mensa folks as a bunch of
stuffy professor types discussing the most minute details
of very boring stuff, the folks I met at Mensa gatherings
were quite the opposite. They were quite lively, fun loving
and spirited...and not at all interested in posturing or
snobery of any sort.
- high school grad only.
- scored less than half on the mensa test.
- iq less than 75.
- cant pronounce posthumously correctly. (just a side note I have beenn struggling with that one for about a year now.)
- can make anything out of Duct Tape including wallets.
Thats all I can think of at the moment. Chime in with more.
