    If someone has to tell you; how smart are you????

    Someone I once met was trying to impress me (I was just about worth impressing 30 years ago) and took great pride in telling me that he was a member of ‘an organisation for particularly intelligent people – Mensa – perhaps I’d heard of it?’
    I said that I had, and was myself a member of ‘an organisation for the not terribly bright – Densa – perhaps he’d heard of it?’
    Strangely, he hadn’t, and didn’t speak to me for the rest of the evening.
    Ah, well. I had my chance. Back to the shallow end of the gene pool . . .

    Yes, mankind does have a habit of exploiting extremely smart animals to perform dangerous work.

    “Densa” I wish I’d thought of that! May I use it? We have a guy at work who always has to be the smartest person in the room ( he rarely is).

    You’re right, that IS good!
    -
    I knew a guy somewhat like the guy you’re stuck with… he told me that he would “never date any woman who wasn’t a ‘Mensan’” — I was delighted to tell him that that requirement left me off of his list of ‘potentials’…!
    Pompous goofs really bore me. I agree with Woody Allen on clubs/organizations like that.

    I had a Mensa member as an employee for a couple of years. He was unable to function at even a basic level of competence.

    I saw a sample of their test. I found an error in it. They were no longer interested.

    It would be a good thing maybe to have a thank you dog day. Besides being a friend all the things they do to help us

    Great idea.
    Aside from jumping out of helicopters and sniffing for bombs, he could have gotten stuck herding sheep, guarding property, leading a blind person, opening doors and cabinets for the handicapped or entertaining sick children.

    Thing is, whatever a dog does, he almost always loves his job, puts 100 percent effort into it and rarely complains.

    How could he/she complain in a way that you could/would hear or acknowledge?

    I would be honoured.

    … I think all of us might be honored to join the Densans. Would that be okay with you?

    Dogs have excellent body language and expressions. If all else fails, they have teeth.
