Thought my brain immense-a
So, I took a test for Mensa
No fees did I dispense-a
Twas company expense-a

Looks like I was too dense-a
I started growing tense-a
It just didn't make no sense-a
Let the ribbing now commence-a

STFU honestly. It's an attempt to be sociable with people who might have similar interests, or in my case, social disabilities. DTNF got it.

Also, I was VERY surprised by how much the time limit played into the test. You have to haul arse to finish a section. I only finished half of them.

Around 15 years ago, I made a bet with someone and took it. I qualified, and I think most actuaries would. I went to one social gathering; it was extremely unpleasant and full of people I did not want to be associated with.
