I haven't succeed with a research of the phrase below cited from the House M.D. - Love Hurts, episode 7x06.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy:
The two of you have a combined IQ north of 300.
What does north of xxx means in case of using with a number, not direction?
Where is likely the usage of this phrase and in what situations?
Do exist another phrases using others of he world sides (sout, west, east) in a similar context?
