Default I took a test for Mensa

Actually, two. I forgot to eat dinner first, though. That is my cop-out if I'm not admitted. The tests were sort of fun, like speed drills.

Anyone a Mensan?

I am not. I'm comfortable enough with my intelligence that I don't need validation.

Never joined Mensa but I qualified. As would I imagine many if not most actuaries.
