Sometimes intelligence tests, for all their totally irreproachable accuracy in every single case and under every single circumstance, have the drawback of taxing the users unnecessarily. How convenient would it be, by analogy, if the winner of the Tour d' France, for instance, could be determined instantaneously, and with perfect accuracy, by issuing a scratch-ticket? Many hours of the most grueling torture would thereby be conserved. Or, for another example yet, what if wars' outcomes could be correctly adjudicated in independent laboratories by quick and inexpensive urine-testing? Giga-dollars in military expense, and incidental damages, could be saved, not to even mention the hundreds of millions upon hundreds of millions of LIVES! Are these mere fantastic dreams? Only time will tell. However, here at hand, with my compliments, is an intelligence test that touts perfect infallibility, and one need never burn the midnight oil to cram those innumerable and mostly irrelevant facts and figures, or stress one's nerves to any extreme.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR YOU TO ENTIRELY FORGET THE OP/ED PAGE OF A HIGH-SCHOOL NEWSPAPER?
1 min. = SUPER-GENIUS!
1 day = GENIUS!
100 days = average.
1 year = idiot.
20 years = sub-moron. Heed the advice of broken lumps of tarmac before even minor decisions!
