Dumbass Dan

So, I’m not sure if I mentioned before that The Wife got me an iPhone for Christmas.
It’s the greatest phone ever invented in the history of man kind. I’d post a picture of it but I haven’t figured out how to take a picture of my iPhone with my iPhone.
It has so many applications that can be downloaded, many of them are free, most of them are 99 cents.
I downloaded an IQ test, I’ve always wanted to have confirmation on how smart I am. I figured I’d land somewhere in the 140-150’s, Bill Gates has an IQ of 150, George Washington scored 118, The highest IQ for our presidents belongs to Thomas Jefferson who scored 138 which makes me wonder why Bill Gates isn’t the President? Guess the money isn’t good enough.

Anyway, this test was a lot harder then I thought it would be, you have to answer all the questions in 1 hour and you need a calculator, a dictionary, a thesaurus, pen and paper and the internet open to be able to answer some of the questions.
Here is an example:

Which number is the odd one out?

3647
2535
5869
6957
1425
4758

What two numbers should replace the question marks?
0,1,2,5,20,25,?,?


The name of which creature can be placed on the bottom row to complete seven three letter words?

D A S A M Y W
U R A G A O A
* * * * * * *

If
IQS: LNV
then
JRM: ???

So turns out that I’m a real dumbass, I scored a whopping 75, that’s just two points better then Mike Tyson. I’m two points away from biting someone’s ear off!
In my defense I should mention that I finished the test in about ten minutes, when I realized this test would actually require some serious concentration I just wanted to finish quickly to get my score. Had I taken the time and had a pencil and paper along with a calculator I’m sure I would have scored in the 150’s. I was also watching TV so my score doesn’t count, I'm going to re-take the test to prove to all of you that I’m not a dumbass!



1 hr. 3 minuts and 58 seconds later…….

This whole thing is stupid! How can a stupid test with stupid questions measure someone’s intelligence? It might be able to measure your knowledge but not your intelligence!
How does knowing the meaning of “laconic” relevant to anything! Intelligence can not be measured with a stupid test, it’s what you do in real life that matters.
I figured out how to take a picture of my phone with my phone, here is proof of my smartness!

if you can figure out how to take a picture of your phone with your phone you're at least 150 easy

Brian o vretanos said...

1. 6957.

2. ? Scores in some kind of game?

3. OCTOPUS

4. MOP

I can't believe that intelligence tests work - it depends on all sorts of things like knowledge and experience, which have bugger all to do with intelligence...

If the number 10 was in the sequence in Q3, then the answer would be "50,100", which would be the number of cents you can have with 0,1 or 2 identical coins.

Jean Knee
That's right girl ! I'm as smart as Bill Gates.

Brian
1) Why?
2) What?
3) That's what I said too.
4) Makes sense to me.

Brian II
We agree again, we must be very intelligent.

Brian III
Yeah, but it's not Brian, it's not. And it would be wrong because of the 25 after the 20.

What a cool picture of your iPhone.
Here is my question, when you look at the picture of your iPhone, how many phones do you see?

Tracys Ramblings said...

I've never done an IQ test.
See, if I don't take one, people will believe that I'm smart. If I do take one and my IQ turns out to be something like 12, people will no longer believe my smartness.
That's why I don't do things like that to myself, Dan.

I want an Iphone!
Of course, I still haven't figured out how to do most of the things my phone says that it can so maybe I should wait a while.

Tracys Ramblings said...

I wonder if Brian's answers are atually right or if he just guessed because he knows that nobody else knows the real answers?

Brian o vretanos said...

1. All the others have the third digit greater than the first, and the fourth digit greater or equal to the second. Break the numbers in two and you'll see what I mean (36,47 58,69), so 69,57 is the odd one out.

2. 25 cents is a quarter. There are also dollar coins. That's why I wondered if you'd just missed the 10 out. Since you haven't I'm stumped.

My thought about scores was that in Tennis, the scores go 0,10,15,30,40 or something, so maybe there's another crazy game with scores like that.

Tracy:

That's my reasons above. I might be wrong. Here's the explanation of the last one:

4. It's to do with going forwards or backwards in the alphabet:

IQS -> LNV:

I J K L
Q P O N
S T U V

JRM -> MOP:

J K L M
R Q P O
M N O P

cracking me up. You need to download the application that listens to whatever is playing and tells you the artist and song. that thing is amazing.

Marie said...

I think you're really smart most of the time.

I just read Brain's last response and threw up a little in my mouth.

Awesome picture - bet Thomas Jefferson never did THAT!!!


HEY!!! WHERE'S YOUR WTF WAS I THINKING PICTURE?!?!?

Jormengrund said...

You know Dan, if you'd really wanted to impress me, you would've realized that the iPhone actually is ALL of the things you need in one!

This way, you open up the applications, and answer the questions without missing a SINGLE ONE..

Yeah, you could've been the first person in HISTORY with a 300 IQ, and you BLEW IT..

But on the bright side, it _is_ a nice phone!

Rhonda said...

I think Brian might be too smart to be here.

Surely you are more than 2 points smarter than Mike Tyson. Surely.

Bee said...

Hey! Where's your picture??

Jean Knee said...

I don't see any picture

Anonymous said...

Brian is absolutely right. These questions are quite hard and use fairly abstract thinking but he is right.

Hi Nice Blog . I don't really know a lot about Knee or art, but that's just my 2 cents. Really great job though, Krudman! Keep up the good work!

To the question 0 1 2 5 20 25, it's all about the nth number, took me a while to work it out but if the nth number is even, u times it, and if odd you add it... For instance the first question mark is the 6th, even, so you times the previous number by 6, and the next odd so you add 7, giving the answers 150, 157 ...
