12. A genuine genius

Is it disingenuous to decide who is a genius or not?
Who is to determine what constitutes the ‘genius’ label?
Would it have to be decided by a genuine genius?

If the opposite of genuine is false,
what is the opposite of genius?

Are IQ tests even done anymore?
Who would even decide what IQ tests consist of?

It is a bit like the chicken or the egg,
which one comes first? 

Surely anyone be a genius if you can google,
or is it all in the genes?

As I don’t know the answers to any of the above 
then I guess I am not a genuine genius.
And I’m ok with that.
