"...the same may be said of a handful of other occupations, such as accountants, engineers and architects, college teachers, dentists and physicians, mathematicians, and scientists. The mean IQ of people entering those fields is in the neighborhood of 120." - Richard J. Herrnstein, Charles Murray, The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life (1994)

Scientist. There you go, Skunkie. IQ of 120. And it also says I make a lot of money. It's in a book, after all. Oh, don't worry. They'll get to stuffed animals soon enough.
