    Agreed, but I'm guessing many would suppress laughter out of respect. I wouldn't be able to contain myself. It would probably come out as a snort.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    I think snorting is worse than outright laughter (depending on the situation). At least people look at me in a more disgusted way when I snort.

    Real age - 46
    Mental age - 53
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I'm not sure what you call it, it's not like the accidental pig snort. haha, i'm laughing just thinking about it. but one short snort. i'm like all giggly cuz i just spent like 15 minutes listening to sound effects of real people laughing, contagious i guess.

    Mental age is 52...haha. Real age 25.

    I think that would surprise many, it certainly surprises me. But then an arbitrary collection of options isn't going to represent real wisdom, which is in how you react and deal with certain aspects. Like your emotional understanding and the realism of your perspective on the world.

    According to the old OP, using division of that 52 with 25 would give me 2.08 which would mean my IQ was 208!

    But then he did say that test wasn't exactly a good one and I agree. Since mental age is more than just what things you like, in fact mental age is ironically....stupid. It's one of the more negative offshoots of the kind of mentality that presumes to know a person simply by averages and characteristics. So for example, 20 years old, a boy and at college studying the arts....probably likes a bit of weed then and listening to certain music types and reading certain books. Superficially that can help, but individually it's usually going to be wrong.

    But that might be my bias based on not being particularly good at working things out like that.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Yeah, I’m not serious about that draft.
    Just for fun is the point of this thread.
    Imagine this is the best thing you've ever read.

    Just open up your eyes, why don't you grow up and see?
    But what the hell is "growing up" and tell me when will I be?
    Can a single person out there just explain it to me?
    Hey, just tell me how... It's not like I care now.
