Check this out from the crappiest newspaper on the planet this morning. Sorry my computer won`t link. it`s a piece of crap too.

www.montrealgazette.com/Life/Toddler+MENSA+member/1551643/story.html

Probably won`t work. It`s about a 2 year old kid in England who became the youngest member of MENSA with an IQ of 156.

She should sit down and talk with Stephen Hawking. I wonder how they tested her?

Doesn`t go into details but it mentions that Uncle Albert`s IQ was 160. Hope Steve is recovering.

"War" over a 4 year old with autism, and possibly one of the most screwed up stories I've read lately.

The IQ of children are measured a different way than that of the adults. I went to a weekend course years ago (for six years), the leader was also member of the Mensa. We did there IQ tests, one of them showed mine was around 170, but this data slowly decreased as the years passed by.
 
And why do they mention, that she knows 35 capitals? That is knowledge, not intelligence (however, a great result from such a small child.
yeah

Sad. a couple of weeks ago a couple of cops in Newfoundland who should have known better arrested an autistic 18 year-old for being "drunk" in public and threw him in the drunk tank. I think the mother is pressing charges against the officers.
