Yeah, making an avatar is one of the greatest tricks of running a good fake account. Others include making an msn-account and talk to other clickers a bit, get a lot of DC-points quick somehow and dc-mail some people about how much other people suck. When all that is done and your fake account has a consistent personality it will grow and will run for years and even become an admin.
I'm 20. And on the subject of ID, when I was 19 I got asked for ID buying tobacco from Asda. This was still when the legal age for buying smoking stuff was 16, mind you. I didn't have any ID on me but managed to persuade the woman behind the counter to get a second opinion. said second opinion was from the shift manager: "Either you're the right age or you're the oldest looking 15 year old I've ever seen."
I'd also like to point out I had a goatee and fairly extensive piercings at the time.

You. Besides the fact IQ as a concept is mostly nonsense, generalised and made universal to the point of uselessness, and discounting Emotional Quotient entirely, IQ is only an indication of one specific 'area' of intelligence. So you can't determine someone's actual level of intelligence from their IQ (which will generally differ 10-15 points per test), just as you can't determine whether they'll have a high or low IQ from the intelligence that they display, be it problem-solving, or communicative, eg posts on an internet forum.
That must be the smartest post on TDC since Paul Jeffries was banned. I still don't quite understand why you ask me this and I hope it won't become a habit but I have to agree with you about IQ in general. As a highschool teacher I often wondered why most teachers value the outcome IQ tests so much (in the Dutch education system at least).
