Geniuses in the blogosphere

Last night I was lurking among the handful of blogs where I tend to lurk, and I happened upon a link to an intelligence quiz on Angie's blog (Angie who has an amazing home, accomplishes incredible projects, both in quality and quantity, and is about to have a baby, hooray!). I decided to try it, just for fun. The score key says 1-5 is average, and 19+ is genius. I put alot of pressure on myself, because I like to think that I'm kind of smart, and I'd hate to find out otherwise. I breathed a sigh of relief when I got past 5! I was also relieved to find that I didn't have to go in order, so I could go through the list and finish what I could figure out and go back to the stumpers. I finally gave up, with a score of 31, and googled the remaining two that I couldn't figure out. I'd have never gotten them, no matter how long I tried.

I had to make an enthusiastic comment on Angie's blog, and in so reading, discovered that she is in the company of greatness, as it is now even more evident that there are geniuses in the blogosphere. I think everyone who commented had scores in the high 20s and up. Far beyond the 19 genius level. I am not surprised! I always marvelled at how intelligent everyone out there in blogland seems to be, with all the witty and clever things they write about. I think the set of population who are bloggers (at least in the sphere of blogs where I lurk) are smarties, yes indeed.
I envision Barney Fife's expression when he's all puffed up and pleased with himself -- the one where he takes in a great big snort of air through his nose and mutters something like 'yeh'.

Geniuses! The lot of us!

I have made this same observation many times. Steven and I met on the net. It was the meeting of the mind that lead to what we are now -happily married with a baby on the way. :-)
