Click Here to find out your IQ

By santeewelding ·
The ad, featuring a well-known (Kobe Bryant, 115, at the moment) has been appearing to the right of TR, All Threads, with my Firefox browser (no ad-block).

I peeled up a corner of the pixels and I peeked. I swear I saw something wriggle. I ain't gonna click on it.

Has anyone? What would that say about your "IQ"? That it is important? That you are worried about it? That you need to know? That you have one?

Now, I see Paula Abdul. They're saying...oops, now it's gone.

Misery or bliss. The Lady or the Tiger. Aimed right at a community of knowledge workers.

Must be why.

These ads are all over social networking sites as well. I clicked one once out of curiosity, and it was just one of those quiz sites composed of 95% advertising and 5% "content" (if you can call it that). I don't know if this is the same thing, but it would be a good bet.

The Lady is a Tiger? ]:)

I saw it and the connection made me laugh.
Was in no way tempted to click.

IQ and competition

<p>I believe that I've seen political figures in similar ads, particularly around election time. I can't remember the IQs associated with Palin and Bush.</p>
<p>It does provide an interesting "I'm smarter than they are" dynamic. Of course, intelligence, especially in the social arena, goes far beyond simple IQ.</p>

I was ordered to stop taking IQ tests. I keep breaking the top off of the IQ meter. Macro intelligence is such a burden to bare. You folks have no idea......or do you??

Possibly you mean

"burden to bear".


Although, thinking about it, perhaps not...

I think

I think I am
Therefore I am
I think


Cogito, cogito sum, ergo sum, cogito

with due apologies to Rene from 'Allo, 'Allo.

Now, I'm seriously ticked off here. I had a very nice accent on my post when I saved it and bloody TR stuck a question mark in to give me Ren?. It's about time we had a bit of IQ application in order to FIX THE BLOODY SITE!

Did you hear about Descartes?

He walked into a bar and the bartender asked "Have a beer?" Rene said I think not - and disappeared!

You bought at discount and read that book about jocular philosophy.
