What's you IQ?

Here's the website I used: http://www.iqtest.com/Mine was 145, and it's nighttime and I'm tired, is that good or not? Some people say age doesn't matter, but I'm 14 so don't make fun.

Take the MENSA Workout test!

Your score was 30 out of 30. That is an excellent score—you would have a very strong chance of passing the Mensa test and joining Mensa. Please note that the Mensa Workout is NOT the official Mensa test, and your score will not qualify or disqualify you for membershipTake the MENSA Workout test and post your score.For funzies! ...lol

"Pattern", Raw Stats on iblers Who answered My Questions.

OK, Here are the rough results on the questions I asked recently in the forum "Looking for a Pattern Here". Some of the answers were open for interpretation, so there is a margin for error here. THere were 19 folks who helped me out so far, and here's what I came up with. Nothing scientific by the way, just interesting. 1. Grades: 12 had consistently good grades (B or higher), 3 had a C average, and 4 were the whole spectrum (A-F). NOthing surprising there to me. 2. Handedness: Only 3 lefties! 16 Righties, with a couple of those being almost ambidextrous. I know statistically, that 3 lefties is high (compared to average), but I just expected more on this site. 3.Reading Materials: This one was hard to quantify, and there were a lot who read tech stuff, but there were a surprising number of novel-readers (8-9), and one (mainly) comics reader! (Somehow I still respect you Bumpus!) 4. Language: 8 were truly Bi-lingual or Multi-lingual, of the remaining 11, about half had some "foreign language" awareness/experience. 5. Home Life: I was pleasantly surpised to see that overwhelmingly most (16)of the respondents grew up in 2-parent homes. With the current divorce rate, I expected very different numbers. Of the other 3, there were diverse family situations. 6. Optimist/Pessimist: 11 optimists, 6 pessimists, 2 mixed. I genuinely expected more pessimists (You guys are so young!). 7. Religious/Spiritual vs. Agnostic/Irreligious: 8 were religious or spiritual, 9 were not religious, 2 were non- categorizable (sp?). 8. Priorities: Unquantifiable, but there were a lot who's priorities centered around family. The other few leaned towards personal success/enjoyment. 9.Succes of Projects: 10 were some variety of procrastination, 3 were consistent successes, 2 tended to quit before finishing, and the other 4 were some (hard to classify) mixture of the others. What do you think? What does this all mean? I'll be trying to cross-reference the stats to see actual patterns or correlations in the above traits.

Geeks, Nerds and Dorks.

Here we are boys and girls (and others) . How about a lively discussion about the differences and similarities between the above groups. What about examples and even names of celebrities who fit a category. Whoops that was an oxymorone. A celebrity who is a geek, nerd or dork. Anyway I look forward to your lively remarks.

Dog Intelligence Test

If you are willing to shell out 5 pounds, you can prove, once and for all, that your dog really is smarter than other dogs. Stanley Coren's new book, a Klutz-look-alike, comes with a custom stop watch to test your dog's intelligence. In due time, I expect that we'll see review books to help your dog achieve that perfect score.Link via Boing Boing Gadgets

DIY "copies" of designs

Hey guys and girls,I was wondering - what do people see as "right" when it comes to making DIY versions of designs. Obviously there is some level where it is inspiration, but what about when the design is based around a shape?For example, this instructable Universal lamp shade polygon building kit clearly uses the same shape as the IQ-light, a fact the author acknowledges.I want one of these Tote, but I would never pay US$114 for it.So is it wrong to try to make a copy of the flat pattern? I've been trying to get it done in CAD, not there yet but getting close. What about if I exactly copied by tracing the shape. I have no intentions of selling it, is it still wrong?

America is getting less creative every generation. This is why we need Instructables!

According to a recent Newsweek article, measures of Creativity Quotient have been trending downward for about two decades. "Like intelligence tests, Torrance’s test—a 90-minute series of discrete tasks, administered by a psychologist—has been taken by millions worldwide in 50 languages. Yet there is one crucial difference between IQ and CQ scores. With intelligence, there is a phenomenon called the Flynn effect—each generation, scores go up about 10 points. Enriched environments are making kids smarter. With creativity, a reverse trend has just been identified and is being reported for the first time here: American creativity scores are falling."

Not sure if there is an intro forum so I posted here

I posted this in the pro section as well under the "welcome" forum, not really sure where it belongs. . . Hey guys, I just wanted to introduce myself to the community here, and shoot some ideas off of you.  I have been a lurker going on a year now for instructables, and I decided to join when my friend submitted a project.  He did the www.instructables.com/id/Pallet-Playhouse/ Pallet Playhouse where he built a playhouse out of used pallet wood.  If you haven't seen if, I would suggest a quick look he did a good job on it! For me, I think I have decided on what I want to do, and I wanted some suggestions from you guys in terms of what I could do for my project.  I want to build a system to connect ski boots to skis and recharge the heaters on the boots via solar power on your skis.  Now, I am not sure of the surface area of solar cells that I would need, the power the boots usually run off of, if it is better to just buy an existing system, or if I should put in some kapton heaters and a control system, and do the board design myself.  I have seen even etching for board designs here, so I could theoretically do this very cheap in terms of monetary cost if I wanted to go that route.  What I am looking for is going through a good cost breakdown analysis, what my budget in time and money is, and what is doable.  I am pretty handy, and will mess with anything I can get my hands on, and I have a fairly high learning IQ so I would be able to replicate most of the instructables here just to give you an idea at what I could do. So here is what my ideas are initially.  Taking an existing boot and battery system, disconnecting the existing battery pack, putting on my own battery system, and using the solar power to top off/charge the batteries. . .or using the solar power to power the batteries.  I still need to see what the power requirement is for existing boots, and what the maximum power output per ski would be if I had solar cells on the ski, what to do with the excess power, if there is any, how to handle the overflow power, waterproofing the system etc, but I think it is doable.  I am unemployed, and I have a business that I am planning, but I am awaiting loan approval from the bank, so I have a few weeks of free time soon.  I was thinking of some cool projects to do, came to the sight and thought of my own.  I figured this would be a great project to learn some stuff about ee, since I am a me by trade.  Anyhow, I love the site, wanted to introduce myself, and if you have any ideas of suggestions, please let me know. Cheers, Michael
