You're not missing anything with MENSA. I was invited to join, but it turns out it's just a club for a bunch of underachievers who do well on IQ tests. (Me, too.) Being smart ain't the be-all and end-all. I'd rather have common sense or good judgment any day.


Isaac Asimov was actually a member of MENSA for awhile until it dawned on him that the level of clear thinkers v. idiots (ie. those who agree with him vs. those who don't) was exactly the same as outside of MENSA. He gave up his membership stating that the collective ability to do well on an IQ test was no reason to form a group.

Ain't life unkind?"

A mind is a horrible thing to have around others which deny it exists.
Intelligence can be a huge benefit if one has it set toward productive tasks.
Consciousness ... well that's its own story.
...to all the coins I've dropped here
