For some reason, I just see a lot of arrogance radiating from that test, and any one who gets in by taking it.

Oh well, that's Google for you.

I find it interesting/humorous that a company with such web presence makes a test that you have to print out and post, rather than fill in online!

Hehe... I guess it's more "personal" if you send it via postal mail...

Well, they never said we couldn't google the answers so I guess it's cool :D BTW I checked out the test, seemed intersting and fun, might take it in a day or so.

I think they'll notice if you fill it in exactly as 500 other people have. I'm no Unix user, so I have zero chance of getting in.
[code:1]char str[20];
scanf("%19s", &str);
if (!strcmpi(str, "Hello, world!"))
printf("Hello, programmer.\n");[/code:1]

The only requirement of the test is that you pass it. They never said you couldn't Google the answers :) All of those Mensa and MIT fools probably actually sat there and figured the crap out in their heads :D

Too bad I missed seeing the test, but on a side note I have been watching the Barrett-Jackson auto auction over the past few days and an amazing amount of the winners bidding on cars that often sold for $150-200k+ (and frequently one fuck of a lot more) seemed like those MIT, Mensa, "do a test in your head" sort of guys.

They also had some smokin' hot girlfriends or wives too.

I'm sure they're laughing with you though.

Ok, im trying to work out how you choose these particular threads to spam up. To be honest, i cant see any connection.

PS: no-one in the history of the universe or in any one of a potentially infinite parallel universes created since the big bang itself has ever liked forum spam. You are less popular than child rapists and RIAA lawyers. I hope you go home tonight and cry yourself to sleep in your tiny 1 room bedsit, wondering how your life has turned out so utterly inconsequential.
