moreover, i know several married gay couples that use the word husband and wife.

Now that I can get with. But Partner is the universal tip off signal that is as good as a *ding* on the gaydar.

Unless, in my experience, you're an academic. Almost every middle-aged to young professor I've had uses "parter," whether male or female, single or married.

Drat. I only got a 162 when I was 16. I knew I should have studied. I could use the cheaper car insurance. Also, since when did being socially inept and of mediocore intelligence warrant cheaper car insurance? I wonder if Mensa members are actually safer drivers.

Yeah I am interested in joining... anyone actually go through the process and everything?  What did you have to do to prove you scored what you did etc?

From everyone I've spoken to, its a huge gathering of nerds who like to feel self important.

Honestly, does anyone really think that scoring well on a test makes someone actually smarter/more interesting? I'd prefer to hang out with/be associated with people who a re fun, smart, and successful based on real world principles rather than test scores.
