Jon's MENSA Question of the Day

--posted by JRJ on 12/30/2005

It's a mistake to hire amateurs, as the archaeologist found to his great distress. One of his new staff came running in one day, all excited. He had just paid a local a great deal of money for an extremely valuable coin. As he said, "I've never seen one like this before, and I've been looking in museums for thirty years. It's a genuine Egyptian coin marked 100 B.C. - solid gold!" The director of the expedition sighed wearily and fired him. Why?

Duuh...nobody knew it was 100 B.C when it was 100 B.C, so they couldn't have made a coin marked that way.

That was one of the weaker questions. MENSA must be off-shoring question choice.

I think the fact that it was marked in English would be a problem as well.
