393rd post - 14 Mar 17 - 1147 EDST - FIRST EDITION


*Celebrate Scientists Day - Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Galileo Galilei, 

Aristotle and Blaise Pascal are considered by many to be the five greatest

scientists of all time.

*Genius Day - 

IQ Scores & Ratings

What is a good IQ ( Intelligence Quotient ) score?  What is a high IQ score?  What 

is a low IQ score?  These are common questions, particularly after someone finds 

out their score from an IQ test.

Lewis Terman (1916) developed the original notion of IQ and proposed this scale 

for classifying IQ scores:

Over 140 - Genius or near genius

120 - 140 - Very superior intelligence

110 - 119 - Superior intelligence

90 - 109 - Normal or average intelligence

80 - 89 - Dullness

70 - 79 - Borderline deficiency

Under 70 - Definite feeble-mindedness

Normal Distribution & IQ Scores

The properties of the normal distribution apply to IQ scores:

50% of IQ scores fall between 90 and 110

70% of IQ scores fall between 85 and 115

95% of IQ scores fall between 70 and 130

99.5% of IQ scores fall between 60 and 140

I've taken IQ scores in the past, but I don't remember the numbered outcome. So,

let's just say I'm in the average range. What is your  Intelligence Quotient (IQ)? 

Don't lie about it, please. 

*International Ask a Question Day

*Learn About Butterflies Day - I'm anxiously awaiting the return of the perennials 

flowers that I have planted in the flower beds and the butterflies who are attracted

to these flowers.

*Mother Day - I dedicate this day to my Mother who "art in Heaven."


*I told you in an earlier story of my life that I read a book that said their was a 

list of people and their date of death. It was compiled by a group of monks in an

underground chamber who had connections with God and the devil. But I have 

never been able to find this book. So I went on to a web site named: I filled in the required information and then 

clicked SUBMIT. The results: Based on our calculations you will die on: 

Monday, 31st December 2018. You will live to be 76 years, 2 months and 4 days 


But, you see, I ain't afraid of dying like most people. I'm 74 and 4 months old

now and I've got over a year to live and I'm completely satisfied with that.


*6:25 AM 3/14/2017 EDST. Kremlin says Syrian peace talks in Astana (capital city 

of Kazakhstan) are 'hugely complex.' Reuters - 14 minutes ago.  


The war in Syria has been long going involving many countries including Russia,

the U.S., Turkey, Iran and most major Muslim religious groups. I hope that this 

senseless slaughter of innocent men, women and children can finally come to an

end with the dictator and murderer Assad convicted and hung, beheaded or shot

dead because of his war crimes.
