Minneapolis provides non-stop tribal entertainment.

"Ahmed Samatar, an international studies professor at Macalester who is Somali-American, agreed.“They are from the same stock in many ways as Africans who are Americans, some of them old Americans, some of them new Americans.

“But outside of that, there is really nothing else,” he continued.“Their language is different even though Somalis are picking up English. Their cultural background is different. Historical background is different. And yet they are in intimate spaces together.”

Many Somalis came here with “very negative perceptions” of African-Americans, their notions based on movies that cast African-Americans as drug addicts or killers, said Abdirizak Bihi, a Somali activist."

There may be a reason for this. Can we be sure that The Slimes IQ is really 296? Or was the 6 an error in typing? Doesn't seem likely, since we know that it has done post graduate work in Spell Check.

Ah, then my guess was correct and Slimes IQ is somewhat less than the high of 198. Who would have guessed?

Guinness retired the category of "Highest IQ" in 1990, after concluding that IQ tests are not reliable enough to designate a single world record holder. So do not expect to find any reliable information about the highest IQ.

You were too stupid to pass anatomy and physiology. That's why you spent your life wiping peoples arses. Now you're just a retired arse wiper.
