Are You Smart Enough To Read This??

As I mentioned in my last post, If you have a blog, read blogs or just happen to be tall...then you are smarter than the average person. That's based on a little science and a large amount of speculation. Certainly anyone who commented on the last post, ROSIES comment where she seemed offended that I might have said unkind things about "Pay Per Post and Pop Up Ad filled blogs...She Said

"What we bloggers who get paid per post don't have is an overwhelming need for therapy. We neither tell the world all about our last shrink visit nor waste any one's life"

Well Rosies, I looked at your blog and now I know you are scared of suffocation, cancer and overdraft fees. I see that your friends, husband and Robin Williams make you laugh, you like chocolate and you Hate overdraft fees..

Hhhmm, Overdraft fees mentioned twice already?? How are those Pay Per Posts working for you?

Anyway, unless your comments are totally rude I will post them all and I thank Rosie for stopping by...Anyone interested in learning more about Rosies can click her link here: Testimonials By Rosie

So back to the title, Are you smart enough to read this?? I stumbled upon an IQ test the other day and discovered I was not a genius...but I'm close and I think I get smarter with every post I write. Here is your chance to take the test!! IQ TEST

You only get 20 minutes and there are 33 questions, GOOD LUCK and let me know how you did. My results are above

Hey smarty pants I managed to get 112 and I was listening to the TV at the same time. However, an IQ test I took some years ago was 130...perhaps my problem is age-related????

Unowho, that's above average, what about "older and wiser" ?? Maybe I need a wisdom test!!

I'll be smart another day, when I'm not so sleepy and full of grapes.

Hi, Tom,

Thanks for the link back. The overdraft fees were from Bank of A. Didja know that Bank of A. has suffered losses of 32% and has laid off 3,000 employees? Right before Thanksgiving -- how nice.

This is due to handing out more than a few bad mortgage loans. I'm still paying the mortgage on this house, tho'. I'm a WHOLE lot smarter than Bank of A Loan Officers!

I have a lot of paid posts but not a single one about getting blitzed on alcohol and having fun staggering around and then frowing up. Lots of those kind of blogs around too. Have you noticed?

If you want serious -- try my main blog (that is less popular than Testimonials) at
That one is Living with Severe Arthritis. Have a good day and close those Bank of A accounts, anyone who has one...they are slamming it to small accounts.

TOM!!! I just wrote a long comment to you and when I tried to post it, it disappeared. UGH, something always happens to me on your site :)

WELL, it looks like Rosie's been visiting MY site alot, what with the complaining about shrink visits and all. And to think, I do it all for free. AND I'm tall.

So I wanted to tell you thank you for your comment, sincerely. I have been a very good girl lately, which is BORING. I'm too young for that! Why did you offer to be my personal chef? I'll take it anyway!

Chicago is an amazing city, but I do wish it were warmer. And the whole issue of SEX in capital letters ... sigh ... what are we going to do?

I want a rematch with those little boxes and circles dammit. I say a 121 is pure BULLSHIT.
