Mensa, the largest and oldest high-IQ society in the world, has named its top 50 Web sites for 2010.

American Mensa says its members nominated more than 300 "wide-ranging, diverse, and sometimes quirky" sites, which the organization divided into eight categories: art & culture, entertainment & humor, news & politics, reference, science & technology, search engines, shopping and social networking & media.

Here is a list of the results:

Art and Culture

Entertainment and Humor

News and Politics


Science and Technology

Search Engines


Social networking/Media

As it turns out, the world's smartest group of people are a lot like us when it comes to wasting, er, spending time online.

However, in our opinion, the science and technology list is a little on the short side.

We suggest that the brainiacs at Mensa add to the list Popular Mechanics, Engadget, Scientific American, Discovery News, CNET, Wired Science and, of course, SmartPlanet.

What do you think?
