“The average IQ is 100. Have you wondered what your IQ score is? Our original IQ Test will give you a fast, free and accurate iq score. Take our quick free IQ test and find out just how smart you are.”

I’m pleased to announce, that my IQ remains comfortably above average…at 122…

This is consistent with how I’ve been doing on these tests, over the years…One year may be a few points higher, or a few points lower…but, 122 is right in the neighborhood, for me.

…I’m never joining MENSA…and at this point in my life, I’ll never reach the point of being an IQ genius…

…But I’m still more crafty, creative, explorative, perceptive and insightful, than the average mind.

…If only I could get myself up eight more points…I’d be Gifted!

…So close…Yet, so far away…

How Quacks and Cults Recruit Followers…

01) How Quacks and Cults Recruit Followers


“Deepak Chopra, David Avocado Wolfe, Mormons, multi-level marketing schemes, and Evangelical Christians all utilize common manipulation tactics which quacks and cult leaders thrive on. These cult recruitment tactics are far simpler and more widely used than most people imagine. Even people who mean well often prey on vulnerabilities in order to convert or recruit others. MLMs like Doterra and Young Living Essential Oils are jokingly called cults by the anti-mlm community, but they really do manipulate their distributors into peddling pseudoscience in a cult-like way. Hopefully this video will help prevent you from joining a cult.

A special note to those who’ve repeatedly told me this whole series on quacks is just a guise to bash Jordan Peterson: This is part 5 of this series, and he receives no mention in 3 of the parts. Sorry to disappoint, bucko.”

01) Feminist Suspended For Saying “Men Are Not Women”


I like the way Tim differentiates between the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and the principle of free speech…

…Though I reject the notion, that it “comes from god”, or any other mystical creature…

…But, Tim is correct…the concept of free speech, is a social one…it’s a social value…It’s not merely a legal matter…

…It concerns everyday people, and everyday institutions…

Some such people and institutions, are enemies of free speech.
