Dear Ladies,

Do you have to take a quiz to get a drink?  I usually find, the most effective answer is, "J&B UP w/water back" or "Cuervo 1800 blended, salt with Gran Marnier float".  I do remember a guy once who was so impressed with himself and Einstein's theory of relativity and it took hours to find his car the next morning  ;D  Have the best day

WTF is number 8? oh never mind I just figured it out.  It's 18 holes in a graham cracker.

I know number 12 is  3 BM's in the (S H i T t e R)

16 here, except there are two that I know the answer but am mispelling or something.

OK I googled Mensa Test Answers, and got the correct answers to all the questions....

I was definitely trying to "over-think" some of these.....

3 Blind Mice (See How They Run) and 15 men on a Dead Man's Chest, for example....

That's one of the ones I knew from a pub quiz - only on the quiz, they put it as 13 is UFS. I used the = sign the first time on this quiz, then realised I needed to change it to IS.

Yep, stupid mensa wankers! :D
