What is your IQ?

how about getting out this tape measure?

seems like it's the trend these days to compare every possible statistic that has little to do with bicycling.

Or maybe it does.

I also think that IQ does not measure intelligence. It only measures your problem solving skills more or less.

However, I started doing intervals 3 times a week to increase my average IQ.

I don't know because Mother always told me that IQ is not a good measurement of a person's true worth. So I'm thinking it must be pretty darn high.

It was so nice the other night that the lady and I walked down the street to DQ. I only had $2 on me and didn't want to bust out the debit card. Luckily a cone with some crunchy stuff on it came out to exactly $2. Bonus!

Where are you getting your iq scores from? I don't think those online tests count.

What about....what BF'er can take the biggest dump? (No pics, please).

That has more to do with cycling that some of the other pissing contests posted here.

You'd have to be pretty stupid to post your IQ on here. Hence anyone claiming a high number is lying.

I would hope most are coming from a professionally administered psych test. They're actually pretty fun.
