When someone asks you what your IQ is and you don't know, just respond with a letter. Doug's is F. Mine is SSS++.

If they think you're making it up, just tell them that there isn't a standardized IQ test, and that your IQ is a meaningless number that can vary greatly depending on when and where you take the test, as well as whether or not you practiced beforehand and whether you had incentive to do well or not.

If that doesn't work, just convince them that you believe the world is shaped like a penrose triangle, then laugh behind their back at how stupid they must be to think anyone could possibly believe that.
It'll probably be even funnier if they don't know what a penrose triangle is, yet still try to convince you otherwise.

I prefer to tell people that the world came into existence only 10 minutes ago and that any memory you have from before then is simply part of the initial conditions of the world.

For example, you remember creating this comic and even remember the password to the server to edit it, but in actuality the comic (and the memories about the comic) all came into existance 10 minutes ago.

So was the world saved, turned off, then turned back on again and reloaded 10 minutes ago, or was it all generated for the first time 10 minutes ago?
I need to know how these initial conditions of the world were setup!

But yeah, good one. I think that's a lot better than the penrose triangle world that I came up with.
