What a funny thread this has turned into. I can't see where a person's IQ has much to do with their hvac knowledge and abilities any more than the size of their d*ck does.
I've learned so much here from people I consider hvac geniuses even though they'd probably barely make an average score on an IQ test.
I know what my IQ is and would never post it here. What would it prove? That I know more than you? About what? That I'm smarter than you? If I really was, I wouldn't be arguing the point. To me, the smartest people here are the ones who come here to share and receive knowledge without starting any trouble.
What's more important here than our IQ is the way we conduct ourselves and interact with others...... *especially* the people who're in charge of keeping the peace around here.
IQ is not a measure of intelligence, But more of a measure of the ability to learn.It is also said that IQ really means nothing after the age of 14 or so. Gosh, My IQ is bigger than yours NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA! Oh yeah, My Dad can beat up your Dad.

OH YEAH! I'll bet I have done more smaller jobs than you have!
This thread really took off on a tangent! First I'd like to say that when reading someone's post I always take into consideration their post count. I try my best not to offend anyone here but especially those that came before me. That is solely my opinion but I'm sure it's shared by others who come here. That's not to say that new people aren't always welcome (hell, I'm still new). Just something positive to contribute is the only thing I like to see. Even the wrong answer to a question or problem can be positive as someone else very often has the same wrong answer and can benefit from the correct solution. Pissing contests however solve nothing and simply stink the place up.
As for the smallest job....ever seen a government RFP 40 pages long for installation of a window unit!
