An interesting variety of Soma.fm's underground stations to choose from. Well, I say underground...

"Groove Salad Classic"
(The classic early 2000s version of a nicely chilled plate of ambient/downtempo beats and grooves.)

"Secret Agent"
(The soundtrack for your stylish, mysterious, dangerous life. For Spies and PIs too!)

"Boot Liquor"
(Americana Roots music for Cowhands, Cowpokes and Cowtippers)

Come on and be honest with me here twoism, am I a serial thread killer?
Or is it just the lack of boccy activity having a knock on effect on the forums? :?

I've noticed this a time or two!

But worry not! There are many times when I've looked and seen my name down that list and thought, "I need to go outside." ;)

I still love your posts. In fact, that is how I'm starting my morning today. Going through, checking on the Orb, and seeing if there were any fights between the fans lol

How does Twoism perform on the Vocabulary IQ test? I got 34/40 (I skipped/answered 'do not know' on 5 questions) which apparently converts to an IQ score of 114. English is not my native tongue, though! Interested in your scores :lol:


Introduction
"Intelligence Quotient" is a way of reporting cognitive ability test scores so that they can be easily compared across tests in a way that automatically takes into account the difficulty of each test. Raw scores are converted onto a scale where the average is set to be 100, and the standard deviation is 15 (this forces a certain percentage of people to fall within certain score ranges).

IQ tests usually contain many different tests and are organized into different abilities. But this is not a Full Scale IQ Test, just specifically a vocabulary test. Vocabulary is usually considered a good measure of Verbal-ability/Verbal-IQ, but may not be an accurate measure for non-native English speakers or people with unusual educational upbringings.

Procedure
The test has 45 questions. In each question you are given five words and asked to select two that have the same meaning. You get penalized for wrong answers, so if you do not know, select "don't know".

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is a pretty short song for being 17 minutes long.

What would you do if one morning you woke up to find that somehow your bed had moved to a random field in Wyoming with you on it?

Everyone knows Wyoming doesn't exist, it's just a state America made up to sound big, like Oklahoma. I mean come on, it's a square, with one area code :P

...hey, I'm a Californian, the rest of the country probably wants to pretend i don't exist either.
