Were you intending to ask this q to your significant other?


Yes, my mom is super smart ☺ She is a confident lady with her own interests. She loves current affairs, doesn't bury herself in the neighborhood gossip. She also believes in 'Live & let live'.


Yes! My mom is super smart and grounded. She managed the home and went and did a PhD while my sister and I were in grade school. She definitely set the bar for us and showed that hardwork is the only way you will be successful in life. So many life lessons learned from my mom!


My mom had formal education only until 9th grade. While I was growing up, I never seen my mom watching those aunty serials. She worked hard to raise 4 people and whenever she had time she read news papers, books, watches spiritual conversations (Till now the same). And, she can talk about many topics like a pro. Our life would have been so different if she had chosen to resort to easy lifestyle.


Kuch bhi. Share a little more context if this is a serious Q


Yes and this is coming from my wife as well. We both agree that she is smarter than the two of us.

My thing is a lot of people’s moms finished their formal education then worked and had kids. In that case it is a bit more of a treaded path to gauge intelligence relative to peers. But for those of you who had mothers who never went to school (college onwards) whose moms stayed home as dependents on their husbands, how are you gauging intelligence? Without factoring in emotional dimensions, what are you looking at when you gauge intelligence and how did she demonstrate it?

I don’t think that’s true. Mine was abusive af and I generally find her dumber than most people I’ve met even with her PhD

She be running this house and has everyone in check

Never made a single dime though lol

I think crypto is one of the best wealth creators since the early tech/internet days. Chance for lifelong wealth. And more accessible than ever because of the resources around us that let us learn with no real barriers. But I hope people really spend time to learn about this technology and how to chart. As it’s one of the best ways to create wealth it’s also one of the easiest ways to lose it. Be careful with euphoria.

I’ll probably get reported for this but damn do some of you all need a life. All you I see everyday is people crapping on other people for where they were born. This is a definition of bullying. You all pick the most obscure topic and want to start a competition over it. Life’s too short to have arguments with strangers on the internet. It’s nauseating, and I’m putting it mildly.


Anyone hear of recruiting service called the dotcom

While everyone has their own prerogative to spell their name as they please but saw a Partner at T2 firm whose name is Becrom. Took me a minute to realize it’s our good old Vikram or Bikram. Why tho? Ross had trouble proving Vikram is a legit name. Made it much harder for him now. Ugh
