Hot chick parties, then scores higher on Mensa Test than Einstein, Hawking and Gates.

Normally after a night out on the town, we're laying in an Advil induced coma with an empty bottle of Rumplemintz propped on the sidetable and the TV re-playing Ace Venture: When nature calls. But for 16 year-old, British bombshell, Laura Marbe, after a wild night with friends, she's up the next morning to take the Mensa IQ test. And while we're sure her definition of wild night varies greatly with ours - Pretty Little Liar reruns vs. 4 a.m. strip clubs - she still managed to eek out a Mensa score of 161. 

With a score of 161, Laura lays shame to Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and celebrated cosmologist Stephen Hawking, and both Microsoft CEO Bill Gates and co-founder Paul Allen, all of whom are estimated by experts to have IQs topping out at 160. Laura maintains that she's just like any other typical teenager: she likes watching trash TV, manicures, blonde highlights and getting to second base. The only difference is she's much, much, much smarter than all other teenagers. 

As a new-found member of the Mensa society and certified intellectual badass, the teenage genius plans to take her talents either to London's West End as an actress and singer, or to study architecture at one of the top educational institutes in the world, Cambridge. We were hoping that she'd take the more American path of success: make a sex tape, start a reality TV show, and insight a celebrity twitter battle.  

But with every success story there are the critics who claim that the IQ test doesn't necessarily measure actual intelligence. While many members of the Mensa society move on to successful professions, equally as many fade off into the dark abyss known as the general public; at which point, they turn to the more American path of success.
