Mensa Rally Held In Melbourne

The Australian arm of Mensa – the organisation for those with an unusually high IQ – held its annual Christmas get together in St Kilda this weekend.

Filled with chants, flags, and discussions about metaphysics, the gatherings were a chance for members to catch up and discuss their favourite equations.

“Often we feel like outsiders. So this is a wonderful opportunity to mingle with like-minded people, throw around some literature quotes maybe, or just count in prime numbers for a while,” one member said. “They close off the streets for us as well, which is nice”.

Another member said the conversation at the Christmas functions can get quite heated. “Oh yes, there’s a lot of shouting. Get a couple of hundred fervent Einstein fans in the one place and there’s bound to be a bit of passionate debate!”
