22 here, so you bested me. But apparently that's still "23% smarter than average".

Hope it makes me smarter for not knowing which rapper sang whatever that song was. LoL.

I was thinking the same thing. :lol:
I actually timed out on the minutes per day thing, that's what I get for putting too much thought into it. :doh:

BTW 23 here.

26, but I maintain knowledge is not a measure of intelligence, nor is a timed quiz on the internet.

Maybe that's an ohio thing. I got distracted for just a split second, then wasted another by looking at how much time i had left. tried to make the last-second pick but didn't have time to click the answer as it dissapeared actually a moment before the little clock thing cycled all the way. oh well.

Sorry for the double post, but yours musta came as I was posting mine. I agree, any true "IQ" test should A) not be written by some 15 year old with a knowlege of web-code (hehe) and B) not include questions about pop-culture. That's not IQ, that's just trivia.

26. The beer and music questions were guesses for me. And for some reason I choked on the alphabet one.

5% although I've seen real beer up to 11 percent in Belguim


the alphabet one took me a second too. but I know that hijk and qrst so the only other was correct.

"which letter comes between whatever and whatever"

26 with English as my second language. I think not knowing your rappers might count as smart:)
GF got 25, I picked a smart one.

I got 27, also. "Smarter than the average bear."

Having been warned by Jim, and seeing pretty quickly how little
time was allowed by the clock, I didn't time out at all, even though
I consider myself to be slow. Smart, but slow. There's a difference!

I guessed on the recent pop culture questions, and have no idea
which ones I got right, if any. Apparently I guessed right about
beer being (roughly) 5% alcohol?

I thought this was a pretty good test, but that could be because
it went by so fast that I didn't have time to think about it critically.
I think it is good that some more recent pop culture items were in
the mix. Just because they are recent or pop culture doesn't mean
that they are only trivia.

I went through the test a second time and was given a question
that I swear wasn't there the first time (square root of 81). So I
got 28 instead of 27. I didn't change any other answers because
I didn't have time to think about what I wanted to change them to.

I know that Urdu is the name of the written language in Pakistan.
Is it also the name of the spoken language? I assumed that it is
and answered that way both times.

Took it enough times to get 30, ask away:)
Yes to Urdu, yes to 5% beer.

Actually I believe Carlsberg beer may be brewed on license in both Sweden and Holland, so that one is slightly silly.

I got 26 (47.5% smarter) which is not bad considering the large US slant on the questions - although I echo this sentiment (http://www.bautforum.com/showpost.php?p=957248&postcount=4) precisely.
