    Mensa is an organization whose members have an IQ of 140 or higher. A few years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco, and several members lunched at a local cafe.

    While dining, they discovered that their saltshaker contained pepper and their pepper shaker was full of salt.
    How could they swap the contents of the bottles without spilling, and using only the implements at hand?

    Clearly this was a job for Mensa! The group debated and presented ideas, and finally came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer.

    They called the waitress over to dazzle her with their solution.
    "Ma'am," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker..."

    "Oh," the waitress interrupted. "Sorry about that."
    She unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.

    psssst....most of the time, Simple really IS the best.....[winkthumb]

    Reminds me of this engineer that rode a new bicycle by his friend one morning.
    "Where'd you get the new bike?"
    "You won't believe this; I was taking a walk this morning down by the river and this drop-dead beautiful woman rode up on this bike and threw it down, took off every stitch of clothes and threw them down, spread her body out on the ground and told me to take whatever I wanted..."
    His friend looks at him in awe, glances back at the bicycle and says "Good choice, her clothes probably wouldn't have fit you."
