Mind-Boggling God of Intelligence and Knowledge

There is a club called Mensa, which you can only join if you can pass their IQ Tests and go cross-eyed over crosswords and puzzles.

The name is taken from the Latin tag 'Mens Sana in Corpore Sano', which of course any Mensa member will tell you means 'A Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body'. It just so happens that the Latin word Mensa means table according to our translations. Do they think around tables?

Just because your mind is of higher things and you tend to trip over undone shoelaces and walk into walls a lot does not mean you need to visit a gym. With the pounding you already subject your body to, it is obvious it is always being tested to the limit.

Here is a little test for you. If MEN himself is depicted with a Thysis in his right hand and a pine cone in his left hand, which foot is resting on the head of a bull? Send your answers to Mensa or treat yourself to a new anorak.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Men graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Men movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Men statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Men. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
