Not a joke. The smartest people in North America are from Arkansas. The recent Mensa 2007 CultureQuest Superbowl of Knowledge competition was won by an Arkansas team. They were one of 130 teams from across NA. This is not the first time the competition has been won by an Arkansas team. Mensa members are in the top 2% of the population in intelligence. And, now, the Arkansas team is the top of the top. p.s. I'm not a member of the team.
