IQ test

So we watched Test the Nation last night. I did the test online, and came up with an IQ of 121. Then we did it on TV, and I end­ed up with 137. I think the 121 is prob­a­bly more honest–some of the ques­tions were eas­i­er the sec­ond time around, since I knew, for instance, what they were going to ask for the mem­o­ry ques­tions, and could plan accord­ing­ly.

The Oscars

So I watched part of the Oscars last night. I also played a video game dur­ing part of them, with the TV on in the back­ground. While I was play­ing my game, I heard some­one say that the Oscars had “gone green” this year. And I thought, Does that mean every­body walked to the the­atre? Or rode bicy­cles? Or even used pub­lic trans­porta­tion?

Then I thought, Who am I kid­ding?
