    • Sheppard: Could have been Mensa.

      Mensa was founded in England in 1946 by Roland Berrill, a barrister, and Dr. Lance Ware, a scientist and lawyer. It is a society for bright people: the principal qualification for membership is a high IQ, although high scores on other tests, such as SAT, GRE and LSAT are accepted. It was established in the Season 1 episode "The Brotherhood" that Sheppard had tested and qualified for Mensa but never joined.
