A while back I decided that I wanted to do an IQ test, and so I found one on the internet and did all the fun puzzle questions.
I can't exactly remember the result, but it was something in the 150 range. Now, I'm not a total idiot, but I'm also not exactly a genius, and at the time I closed the site and wrote it off as inaccurate.
Thinking back on it, I remember it telling me to pay something like £60 pounds for a certificate in order to 'prove' I had a 150-something IQ, and that was probably why the result was so high. No one's going to pay money to be told they have an IQ of 60.
So in conclusion, I think the reason so many internet idiots have ridiculously high IQs is due to both their enormous egos and not being bright enough to realise they've been scammed.
TL,DR: take IQ tests on the internet with a grain of salt.
My dad grew up with his family slamming him for not being his father's biological son. The rumor was that grandma had an affair with a man named "Tillery" when she got pregnant with my father. My grandparents always denied it, but the rumors have always hung around my dad. Grandpa was a Native American man grandma was white, and dad was their only biological child (his siblings were adopted). My dad was blonde as a kid but got darker as he's aged, and he looks like grandpa, so because we all believed 100% that he was biologically grandpa's son, we decided to finally set his fears aside and prove it with a DNA kit for his 61st birthday. The kit came back today after nervously waiting several weeks, and there's a lot of matched relatives, with the name "Tillery". No native American DNA results at all, no one with his fathers family's name. He's crushed and I feel awful. This has to be the worst thing I've ever done to my dad.
Tldr: I bought my dad a DNA kit to prove he wasn't the result... keep reading on reddit ➡
We’re two Danish architects who’ve designed a Moon Habitat that can unfold like origami and expand its inner volume by 560%! It’s not ready for the Moon yet, but we’ll test it over 3 months in Arctic Greenland. We will live like astronauts in total isolation, testing the Habitat, our bodies, and our minds. Essentially, we’re testing ways to make extreme isolation + hostile environments livable for humans, not just military-trained astronauts.
The project is completely independent of any big organizations and we are building the Habitat ourselves here in Copenhagen.
The ultimate goal would be to see our habitat on the surface of the Moon since we believe the future of space travel must not be just survival, but instead that space should be full of life.keep reading on reddit ➡
It seems like the major players are Adam Rapoport, editor for BA and Sohla El-Waylly, chef at BA's test kitchen. Here's a post from the BA meme page: https://www.instagram.com/p/CBMEYCDDyWU/?igshid=13vtozj3uko4s
I don't understand what's going on, but I presume it relates to the BLM movement.
The amount of crashes you hear about where old people have accidentally planted the accelerator instead of the brake and ploughed into people/bulldings/vehicles, or are travelling at 20mph in a 40 and braking every slight corner, holding up the rest of the road.
I think every 2 years is a reasonable length of time to evaluate elderly people, and I also believe no one should drive over the age of 90. Reaction times are just too slow to be safe on the roads.
I’m (26F) my Asian parents’ first kid, I was the test-trial child. I had fuckups so my sister (19F) won’t. They count on me for things since they’re not good with English. I was forced to mature at a young age.
Then my sister came. I guess that they saw that I turned out fine, they didn’t need to restrict my sister like a dog. They’re overbearing to her, but tiger-parents to me. They favor her like a daughter while they treat me more of a friend-daughter than actual daughter.
Sister was angry at their protectiveness that she turned rebellious in high school. She knew she had more leeway than I did. She was right, they tried to stop her from partying and getting drunk with other kids.
She fell pregnant last year, no baby daddy in picture. My parents have traditional Asian beliefs, and by traditional, I mean bullheaded beliefs that’ll bend a trident. They had high hopes for her: college, good-paying job and a family of her own.
They were angry at her pregnancy, but they didn’t believ... keep reading on reddit ➡
UPDATE: wow this got a lot of comments!!!
So I have done a LOT of snooping. And it is way more soap opera than I thought.
apparently since child 1 didn't look like him at all, she made up the paternity test scheme to trick him into marrying her. But, THEY ACTUALLY DID PATERNITY TEST THAT KID and the real test said her ex was the dad. But he refused so she lied about the result, and my bfs bro never asked to see the papers
it gets worse. She's been secretly collecting child support from bio dad, and using it as get secret slush fund, while being a stay at home mom and making husband pay her way
she cheated on him A LOT and figured that she could lie again if the kids weren't his, and secretly rake in the child support. So, each baby she had tested, but the next two were his.
he decided to stay bc the kids - but he called the baby daddy of Kid 1 and explained the whole situation.
Baby Daddy of kid 1 is in negotiations for visitation or to cease child support.

He was just too nice a person and actually wanted to protect people.
I posted this on r/relationship_advice but it was removed because apparently it belongs here.
I’m a 29 year old white guy. My wife is 30 and black. We have two kids, a 3 year old girl and a 5 year old boy. My wife got pregnant with our son early in our relationship. We had only been together a year. We got married because she got pregnant. Fortunately for us, we are actually happy.
When my son was born I accepted him as mine. However, I couldn’t help noticing how little he looked like me. He is noticeably darker than my wife. He doesn’t look half white. My family and friends have asked if I’m sure he’s mine. I had doubts, but I initially decided to trust my wife. I loved my son regardless.
When our son was 2, my wife had our daughter. I had no doubt she’s mine. She looks just like me, she even has my blue eyes. I never realized how powerful it is to know a child is yours. I bonded with her easier because there wasn’t the question of paternity dangling over our heads. My family bond... keep reading on reddit ➡
