I just tried out an "IQ test" from Facebook. It asked me a lot of impossibly easy questions and then asked me to enter my cell phone number to get my results. Shyeah right. Anyone who does that deserves what they get - that seems like the real IQ test.
Reminds me of the IQ test in Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle. A soldier hands you a rifle, powder and shot and instructs you to load and fire it. If you successfully load and fire the weapon you are pressganged into the army, if you don't know how (or feign such) you go merrily on your way. I know which outcome I consider to be passing that IQ test.
