Geniuses Just Wanna Have Fun

ARLINGTON, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re really smart, then you already know where to spend your Independence Day.

That’s because the Annual Gathering of American Mensa is happening July 4th - July 8th, with more than 1,300 miraculous minds coming together in Birmingham, Alabama.

Mensa is a worldwide organization made up of people with an IQ in the top two percent of the population, but this gathering is more about partying than physics.

Events at the Birmingham Bash include a Scrabble tournament, a speed-talking competition, a spelling bee, and even a prom.

American Mensa spokesperson Hilary Moore says, “It’s like a family reunion, just a bunch of people having fun.”

And even though you aren’t smart enough to get into this July 4th bash, Moore insists the only velvet rope is the one blocking your intelligence.

As Moore says, “Mensa members include everyone from doctors to garbage men. There’s no elitism.”
