[show]Goof (factual errors): Reid can't have an IQ of "187" as neither of the two IQ tests typically used quantify IQs over 140 or 150 (depending on which test is used). IQ tests are meant to identify children who need help, not geniuses, and are therefore very accurate at the low end, but not at the high end, where all that is necessary is to determine that a child isn't having trouble learning. The actual number is determined by dividing mental age as determined by the test, by chronological age, multiplied by 100, but the tests don't usually allow for mental age above 18, so the problem with an adult achieving a high score, or a specific number like "187" is obvious.
