I got sucked into this documentary the other night on Channel 4: Simpleton or intellectual bore – which one are you and whose the happiest?  Ricky Gervais sidekick Karl Pilkington (a self-confessed simpleton) went on a mission to find out if intelligence equals a better, happier life……..Read about his visits to Germaine Greer, Will Self, David Icke etc…………… http://danowen.blogspot.com/2007/10/comedy-lab-karl-pilkington-satisfied.html 

I’m with the author on this – I’d rather spend a night down the pub with Karl than 2 mins with Will Self (how aptly named he is)

Karl’s IQ was 83 and apparently the national average is 100.  If you’re curious about your IQ like I was at the end of this take an online test and see how you fare: http://uk.tickle.com/test/iq/intro.htmlI know it’s not important what your IQ is but it’s a bit of fun!
