IQ tests » Post #8

I'm glad to see a topic on something other than the virus. I'm sick of reading about
'the' virus.

There's a lot of interesting topics in the world but everyone is hung up on covid-19
right now.

So thankfully, you brought up something different to the table....errrrr....the forum.

Good for you.

I don't believe in any kind of diet. I just believe in eating sensibly. Not that I always do.

That's not the way they do it here.

They have to create the details, and then the senate has to vote on it, if it passes,
the president signs off on it. So then it would not matter if the president died or
was re-elected or not re-elected. It would still be active. For example they passed the
'Cares Act' which included the $1,200 stimulus checks and $500 per child'.

Trump doesn't want to give more stimulus checks to the people but some republicans
do and some democrats do.

If a bill is passed for more stimulus to the people, he will probably be re-elected. If
a bill is not enacted, does not pass, he probably won't be.

That's what I am guessing.

I am the one that chose 'no'. :mrgreen:

The reason I chose no is due to the enormous amount of IQ tests and there are
very simple to very difficult tests. I scored 142 on an IQ test many years ago and
on another 136 and still yet another 124. All three tests were different from the
other. Some questions are very simplistic such as 'what is a female cat called'
and 'what is 12 ft by 12 ft equal'.

I had a half sister that was considered borderline genius. She dropped out of
high school in her freshman year. She ran away from home many times. She
was very promiscuous to say the least. She went down to Mexico and worked
bar tending, met a man, married him so that he could be a US citizen, then
divorced him. She drank like a fish. She could turn up a fifth of vodka and
drink half of it in one gulp. She was a party animal. When she became a little
older, she took the GED test and scored 100% plus received an award. A couple
of years later, while drunk and not having her seat belt on, she wrecked going
90 down a highway and was thrown from the vehicle. She died immediately.

Intelligence seems to have little to do with common sense and rationalizing.

There are people with high intelligence that are basically worthless as a human
being. We can look at people like Ted Bundy. He was rather intelligent but also
a serial killer.

Charles Manson, well I never saw him as intelligent. I saw him as fried. Back
in the 60's he wasn't a bad looking fellow. He was a lazy punk. During that time
frame, there were a lot of young run away girls. Many wanted to run away to
California and were often preyed upon by evil doers. That's about all that amounted
to. He was an acid hippie and that found on old ranch and took in run away girls
that had no where to go. He then fed them acid and tried to pretend like he was
something special. Any sanity he may have had, went out the door long before it
started. LSD can fry the brain and it certainly did his.

You have to be sorry for your sins, seriously loving God, and trying to be Christ like.

Y'all are confusing bad with sin. That is two different things.

You can be good as gold and go to hell. You can badder than bad and go to heaven.

ALL have come short to the glory of God. That is why God sent His son to die on the
cross, to shed blood, and forgive us of our sins.

God says, one sin is no greater than another sin.

A lot of people are bad. Children are bad. A lot of atheist are good.

It's what you are in your heart and your faith in God and Jesus. If you have faith and
love for your creator and have ask for forgiveness of your sins, you have repented.

Trump will win if he gives us the $2,000 per month until the virus is over.

If he does not give us the $2,000, he will lose.

Yes, many places in the woods you can find wild berries and shrooms.

My back yard and some in my front, is full of wild strawberries. Wild strawberries are
very small. I mow over them but if I was hungry, I could eat them.

Well yeah, some times you can come across corn and beans......and more if you go at
night in the neighbors garden. :lol:

IQ tests are valid and general. They are not an end all end.

A perfect example would probably be savants. Usually savants excel in some areas but not in others.

The Lyman twins is a good example because they are autistic. However, they can remember everything.
You can ask them what they ate twenty years ago on May 3rd and they can tell you everything they ate.
Their favorite TV person is Dick Clark and they can tell you everything about him, everything and every
day of the game show he hosted. BUT the Lyman twins are actually incapable of taking care of themselves.

IQ tests are windows. They can give us a good idea of the intelligence level and what a person may
excel at and vice versa.

One has to keep in mind, there are lots of people with high intelligence in one or more areas but lack
ability in other areas. Also, some IQ tests are very basic and they do differ a lot.

Belgians Eat More French Fries » Post #3

Never had a French fries sandwich.

I do like taters.

Kind of funny since I was asking a French moderator the other day if France
invented the French Fry.

Well today there is an article about Belgians being told to eat more potatoes.
The reason being, they have an abundance of potatoes due to the covid-19
and so they are trying to help their farmers by eating more taters.

Just think about all the recipes you can make with taters.

tater soup
tater casseroles
fried taters
boiled taters/stewed taters
waffle taters
tater cakes
French fries
tater tots
baked taters
and more more more taters


Do you need to complete your survey profile? » Post #4

They don't.

ySense does not own surveys.

Survey companies know your profile as you answer questions.

There are some survey you may go into such as PeanutLabs and set up
your profile. But thru these routers, it is mostly automated.

My point is, you could survive a very long time, possibly forever, IF you know
which plants to eat and preserve.


I can't see anyone, at this point in time, having a problem locating water,
but maybe people that don't live by water.

Do you know how to find food in the woods/wild?

I imagine many people would starve to death if they did not know how to tell
what plant life is edible and what is not edible....poison mushrooms, etc.

Well folks, things are sure adding up, bit by bit.

Even as a child, I could not fathom seeing someone through a machine
from the other side of the world. It was basically unheard of. When people
said some day, we could see each other over the telephone, we all laughed.
We couldn't envision our rotary or push button phones have a way to see
each other.

Not long before my time, televisions were unheard of. No one could imagine
such a thing. Even some time before that, anything other than a bird in the
sky would have been considered a witch's work.

Now the day has come. We all know of artificial insemination, growing organs
in a test tube, cloning animals, even printing out organs.

Also we look to the sky more and more. There's a lot of strangeness in the sky.

Then we see depletion and extinction of our resources, our plants, and our

Mother Nature seems to be incredibly destructive in these latter years with
earthquakes, tornadoes, droughts, and more......such as viruses of strange

Every where we look, death is occurring. Parents killing their children, and vice
versa. There seems to be growing an uncontrollable madness and in which
people will kill for any reason and no reason.

Is Heaven a far away planet? Could it be through a door we can't see? Maybe
it's a huge planet, much larger than the imagination. Is THE CLOUD a place
our souls go to when we die? Did God create us by design and printing us
out on a huge printer?

Today, more and more scientist believe in God and life after death. They now
realize the possibilities, is in fact very possible. It's all adding up, bit by bit.

What do you think?
