That is really awesome. I've always wondered what Mensa members talk about when they all get together (do they have meetings?). Hey Curtis, let us know if you run into Steven Hawking, and spark a conversation about existence as we know it.

Thank you very much for the kind posts! Really! Thank you all!

There is a local chapter that has meetings throughout the month. Some are at restaurants, some are at peoples houses, some are social gatherings at a park or hot spot...There is a Singles group, there are book clubs, hot-topic discussions, and science and technology gab sessions.

The discussions are not necessarily that deep or theoretical...The local chapter President explained it very nicely..."It's not what you know that is important to Mensa, it's how you think".

I'm hoping to gather some people who care about the same issues that I care about. One of them is helping to stop domestic violence. I foresee having either in-person or on-line discussions about the topic and presenting an article or seminar titled, "Domestic Violence: It Just Doesn't Make Sense" or something that puts a quirky twist relating logic, or the lack-there-of, to domestic violence. Nobody likes being perceived as being stupid, so if this can help abusers and the abused to see that abusive actions are stupid, perhaps it will motivate them to want to lose that perception and try to learn another way of managing their anger, or even help someone get away from someone abusive.

I'm still tossing around ideas, but the jist is I would like to take this accomplishment and use it to help people to help themselves.
