Thanks to Jordan Fleitz for sending this to me. If you look closely, there’s a midget in the background.
I wonder, because in a lot of his posts, he often mentions Nam. In one of them he said his IQ was 12, although in reality that is just a little too low for anyone, isn’t it?
I think that results from IQ tests are standardised to fit a normal distribution, which makes any score theoretically possible. There are also many of them with different standard deviations which would make it more (high SD) or less (low SD) likely to achieve extreme scores. Although, a score of 12 is highly unlikely on any test, given that most tests have a mean of 100. From memory a score below 70 indicates mental retardation and a score of 12 would mean extreme mental retardation. I could be wrong and I would be happy to be corrected.
Yo niggas i believe this shit about Jimbo Jones man me and mi homies gonna bust a cap in yo ass if u dont belive jimbo jones bitch dont make me smack u cross da face niggas
hahahahahaha…good one Buddy…excellent :@)
Buddy??…..hello?….you didn’t smack the computer did you?…or shoot it?
I understood that if you make a frequency histogram of IQ in a human population then you should find you get a symmetrical hill shape graph with the crest of the hill at 100 and limits at either side of 50 and 150. This is one of the reasons that I laugh at people who boast of having an IQ of 220 or something, because A)that score is impossible and B) A trained ape could get a high score, as it’s not a measure of intelligence, its a measure of how good you are at IQ tests. This is proven by the fact that you can train someone to be good at IQ test, and they will get higher score but they won’t actually be any cleverer. Apparently the uk MENSA vet entry with an IQ test. I think they aren’t nearly as clever as they think they are.
Why do monkeys just make more monkeys?…

Judaism’s Bible is often referred to as the Tanakh, or Hebrew Bible, which includes the sacred texts common to both the Christian and Jewish canons. The Christian Bible is also called the Holy Bible, Scriptures, or Word of God. The Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Old Testament canons contain books not found in the Tanakh, but which were found in the Greek Septuagint.
More than 14,000 manuscripts and fragments of the Hebrew Tanakh exist, as do numerous copies of the Septuagint, and 5,300 manuscripts of the Greek New Testament, more than any other work of antiquity.

Derivation of term Bible
An Antebellum era (pre-civil war) family Bible dating back to 1859.According to the Online Etymology Dictionary the word bible is from Anglo-Latin biblia, traced from the same word through Medieval Latin and Late Latin, as used in the phrase biblia sacra (“holy books”). This then stemmed from the term (Greek: Ï„á½° Î²Î¹Î²Î»Î¯Î± Ï„á½° á¼…Î³Î¹Î± ta biblia ta hagia, “the holy books”), which derived from biblion (“paper” or “scroll”, the ordinary word for “book”), which was originally a diminutive of byblos (“Egyptian papyrus”), possibly so called from the name of the Phoenician port from which Egyptian papyrus was exported to Greece.
Biblical scholar Mark Hamilton states that the Greek phrase ta biblia (“the books”) was “an expression Hellenistic Jews used to describe their sacred books several centuries before the time of Jesus,” and would have referred to the Septuagint. The Online Etymology Dictionary states, “The Christian scripture was referred to in [Greek] as Ta Biblia as early as c.223.”
The Online Etymology Dictionary continues stating that the word “Bible” replaced Old English biblioÃ°ece (“the Scriptures”) from the Greek bibliotheke (lit. “book-repository” from biblion + theke, meaning “case, chest, or sheath”), used by Jerome and the common Latin word for it until Biblia began to displace it 9c. Use of the word in a figurative sense, as in “any authoritative book,” is from 1804.

Main articles: Hebrew Bible , Tanakh , and Old Testament
The Hebrew Bible (Hebrew: ×ª× ”×šâ€Ž) is a term that refers to the common portions of the Jewish and Christian biblical canons. Its use is favored by some academic Biblical scholars as a neutral term that is preferred in academic writing both to “Old Testament” and to “Tanakh” (an acronym used commonly by Jews but unfamiliar to many English speakers and others) (Alexander 1999, p. 17).
“Hebrew” in “Hebrew Bible” may refer to either the Hebrew language or to the Hebrew people who historically used Hebrew as a spoken language, and have continuously used the language in prayer and study, or both.
Because “Hebrew Bible” refers to the common portions of the Jewish and Christian biblical canons, it does not encompass the deuterocanonical books (largely from the Koine Greek Septuagint translation (LXX), included in the canon of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches). Thus the term “Hebrew Bible” corresponds most fully to the Old Testament in use by Protestant denominations (adhering to Jerome’s Hebraica veritas doctrine). Nevertheless, the term can be used accurately by all Christian denominations in general contexts, except where reference to specific translations or books is called for.
The Hebrew Bible consists of 39 books. Tanakh is an acronym for the three parts of the Hebrew Bible: the Torah (“Teaching/Law” also known as the Pentateuch), Nevi’im (“Prophets”), and Ketuvim (“Writings”, or Hagiographa).
(see Table of books of Judeo-Christian Scripture)
Main article: Torah
The Torah, or Jewish scripture. In the background are the Star of David and a Menorah, two important symbols of Judaism.The Torah, or “Teaching,” is also known as the five books of Moses, thus Chumash or Pentateuch (Hebrew and Greek for “five,” respectively).
The Pentateuch is composed of the following five books:
I Genesis (Bereisheet ×‘×¨××©×™×ª),
II Exodus (Shemot ×©×ž×•×ª),
III Leviticus (Vayikra ×•×™×§×¨×),
IV Numbers (Bemidbar ×‘×ž×“×‘×¨), and
V Deuteronomy (Devarim ×“×‘×¨×™×)
The Hebrew book titles come from the first words in the respective texts. The Hebrew title for Numbers, however, comes from the fifth word of that text.
The Torah focuses on three moments in the changing relationship between God and people.
The first eleven chapters of Genesis provide accounts of the creation (or ordering) of the world, and the history of God’s early relationship with humanity.
The remaining thirty-nine chapters of Genesis provide an account of God’s covenant with the Hebrew patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (also called Israel), and Jacob’s children (the “Children of Israel”), especially Joseph. It tells of how God commanded Abraham to leave his family and home in the city of Ur, eventually to settle in the land of Canaan, and how the Children of Israel later moved to Egypt.
The remaining four books of the Torah tell the story of Moses, who lived hundreds of years after the patriarchs. His story coincides with the story of the liberation of the Children of Israel from slavery in Ancient Egypt, to the renewal of their covenant with God at Mount Sinai, and their wanderings in the desert until a new generation would be ready to enter the land of Canaan. The Torah ends with the death of Moses.
Traditionally, the Torah contains the 613 mitzvot, or commandments, of God, revealed during the passage from slavery in the land of Egypt to freedom in the land of Canaan. These commandments provide the basis for Halakha (Jewish religious law).
The Torah is divided into fifty-four portions which are read in turn in Jewish liturgy, from the beginning of Genesis to the end of Deuteronomy, each Sabbath. The cycle ends and recommences at the end of Sukkot, which is called Simchat Torah.
Main article: Nevi’im
The Nevi’im, or “Prophets,” tells the story of the rise of the Hebrew monarchy, its division into two kingdoms, and the prophets who, in God’s name, judged the kings and the Children of Israel. It ends with the conquest of the Kingdom of Israel by the Assyrians and the conquest of the Kingdom of Judah by the Babylonians, and the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. Portions of the prophetic books are read by Jews on the Sabbath (Shabbat). The Book of Jonah is read on Yom Kippur.
According to Jewish tradition, Nevi’im is divided into eight books. Contemporary translations subdivide these into seventeen books.
The eight books are:
I. Joshua or Yehoshua [×™×”×•×©×¢]
II. Judges or Shoftim [×©×•×¤×˜×™×]
III. Samuel or Shmu’el [×©×ž×•××œ] (often divided into two books; Samuel may be considered the last of the judges or the first of the prophets, as his sons were named judges but were rejected by the Hebrew nation)
IV. Kings or Melakhim [×ž×œ×›×™×] (often divided into two books)
V. Isaiah or Yeshayahu [×™×©×¢×™×”×•]
VI. Jeremiah or Yirmiyahu [×™×¨×ž×™×”×•]

Malachi or Malakhi [×ž×œ××›×™]
Main article: Ketuvim
The Ketuvim, or “Writings,” may have been written during or after the Babylonian Exile but no one can be sure. According to Rabbinic tradition, many of the psalms in the book of Psalms are attributed to David; King Solomon is believed to have written Song of Songs in his youth, Proverbs at the prime of his life, and Ecclesiastes at old age; and the prophet Jeremiah is thought to have written Lamentations. The Book of Ruth is the only biblical book that centers entirely on a non-Jew. The book of Ruth tells the story of a non-Jew (specifically, a Moabite) who married a Jew and, upon his death, followed in the ways of the Jews; according to the Bible, she was the great-grandmother of King David. Five of the books, called “The Five Scrolls” (Megilot), are read on Jewish holidays: Song of Songs on Passover; the Book of Ruth on Shavuot; Lamentations on the Ninth of Av; Ecclesiastes on Sukkot; and the Book of Esther on Purim. Collectively, the Ketuvim contain lyrical poetry, philosophical reflections on life, and the stories of the prophets and other Jewish leaders during the Babylonian exile. It ends with the Persian decree allowing Jews to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple.
Ketuvim contains eleven books:
I. Tehillim (Psalms) ×ª×”×œ×™×
