American Mensa is a social and community service organization for those who score in the top two percent on an accepted, standardized intelligence test. In November 2008, members of American Mensa nominated 300 various Web sites, and voted on which ones they liked. The list was then cut to the top 100 in December. Members continued voting until February, and the 50 Web sites that received the most votes made the Mensa cut.

"The Top 50 Web sites list exemplifies the different types of members and personalities that make up American Mensa's members," said Paige Faulkner, Membership Director of American Mensa. "Our members run the gamut from plumbers to physicists, and have many different interests including astronomy, fashion and chocolate. The list is a fun way to show the different types of things our members are looking at on the Internet."

American Mensa is an organization open to anyone who scores in the top two percent on an accepted, standardized intelligence test. The organization has more than 56,000 members in the United States and more than 110,000 members around the world.
