Do you have any evidence of your above-average nature? I'm not asking for those who are more educated, but rather, more intelligent. Having a degree doesn't necessarily make someone smarter. So, what justifies the idea that you are smarter than other people?

There’s not an intelligence measure anywhere on earth that everybody agrees is a standard. You can quote MENSA; State education requirement tests; university degrees passed; MBTI…..doesn’t work. Some companies (including the armed services) get their people to sit all kinds of tests and then sort them into specialist roles based on their answers to the questions. I can get to the heart of arguments quickly.
I solve puzzles and always did as a kid. I solved the rubik's cube on the second day I had it when it first came out - before the internet. That's way quicker than Rubik himself.
I see things that others don't. I often do it in 'intuitive' leaps where i can see multiple steps ahead all at once, and I know it works even though I haven't had time to think it through. It takes a second to see it but might take 20-30 minutes to explain it. I don't know how, it just happens.
Formal IQ tests affirm it - they're just like more fun puzzles.
In my work I've become a global expert at something - mostly through problem-solving and creative thinking I saw possibilities that led to it being changed. But I'm not always really quick like some. I'm also not great at maths - never interested me, and only use it where it is relevant. My ability tends to be around things I'm interested in. It also doesn't mean anything - it doesn't make you better than anyone. It's just useful. When my car isn't working, I have full respect for my friends who listen for 10 seconds and know exactly what's needed.
Still doesn’t imply, let alone prove that intelligence is measurable by any standard than the one they themselves set.

Isn't "following" someone on social media just normalised stalking?

paradiseeve5’s Profile PhotoDuaa.
I was so looking forward to this question, and yeah Social media spying has turned us into a stalking society. And we all know that social media companies don’t tend to think too hard about what happens when things go bad. The only thing they offered was painstakingly deleting or untagging old posts, one by one. Now lets ask ourselves a question, is social media really worth it??

Global fertility rates are dropping substantially which is good for the climate but bad economically. How does the declining population growth rate cause economic woes?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
A lower population means less workers. Which means less money being made. Which means companies lose more. Which means AI becomes even more imperative to have. At some point we will have a world dominated by AI in the work force. I just cannot see it not happening. We'll come to a point where humans will never work a day in their life ever again, and we'll officially achieve the next stage of life: the Fourth Industrial Revolution - which is already happening.

What would the economy be like if the federal government broke up large monopolistic companies like Alphabet, Amazon, and others and put forth policies that encouraged competition?

Cleaning the toilets is not one of our favorite things to do. Still, it's important not to delay cleaning your toilet. Did you know that the toilet is often one of the dirtiest places in your home? Indeed, thousands of bacteria and fungi thrive in your toilet. By postponing cleaning, bacteria spread quickly. It may sound crazy, but a clove of garlic can help.

How often do you encounter racist, sexist or otherwise discriminatory language online in posts or comments? Do you think abusive language is a serious problem that social media companies, like Twitter and Facebook, should do a better job of addressing?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
It depends on what I'm trying to look up. Sometimes I don't see any of it at all. Sometimes I see a lot of it. Usually I just ignore it because a lot of them come from trolls anyway. The internet has given people easy access to say things they would never say to their faces. I think it's a waste of time to try to track them down and insult them because that's exactly what they want you to do. They want to be given the spotlight. If they can rattle someone then they’ve won. It's best to leave them alone and let them move on to someone else.
Plus, there could be the odd occasion that somebody is joking with a friend. Perhaps they have a really weird sense of humour, and they used inappropriate language to conduct their behaviour. If somebody saw that, and they didn't know those people, they would probably think it's appropriate. However, to them, it's far from such. So I think there's some grey areas here that wouldn't necessarily make enforcing the internet laws better. Again it just comes down to how you react to it. Don't react to things that upset you. Just let it go and move on. Because again the troll wants you to react to them. The more you react to them, the more they come after you. Sometimes they increase their presence tenfold.
The companies could IP ban them, but what about the others? That's just one. And what if you ban the wrong IP? Then you could have it all blow up in your face.

What role, if any, should the federal government play in the use of vaccine passports? Do you think that the Biden administration should take a more active role in either creating a national vaccine passport or creating standards for private companies making vaccine passport apps? Why or why not?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
I honestly think the vaccine passport should be for international travel only. It's overkill to have a vaccine passport for a bus ride, a trip to hospital, etc. That's not really solving any problems. It's also not going to make things any different.

What is with commercials or ADS on youtube TV? I PAY FOR THIS!! LET ME SKIP ADS!! Ugh 😑😑

CM2024’s Profile PhotoCM2024
NO SHIT!! YouTube commercials are a war crime against humanity! I hate how they cut in whenever they feel like it, right in the middle of a sentence. And sometimes there’s like 3 in a 6 minute video! This is the worst form of advertising ever created. Companies, if you want potential customers to HATE you forever, advertise on YouTube

Imagine that you have decided to create your own political party. How would you write a speech that you might give to a crowd informing them about your party?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
I would notify them that, effective immediately, everything is free. I would not care if companies sue, or if people complain. Everything would be free, and then I would sit back and do nothing. Might as well get free clout that way ;)
My party would have no mission nor goals except to make everything free. Screw it. Go Utopian, and never look back.

Europe better. Its hard to be good paid on Bangladesh?

soyvoldemort2’s Profile Photosoyvoldemort2
I only love my job here in Bangladesh tbh. Because with the help of almighty I still have my job where 60% people here are unemployed. They gives me salary on time. Their salary range is better than other regular platforms and companies basic salary. Working in a multinational company is really comfortable and enjoyable. Yes, you're right and that's why I targeted to move in Europe. A part of my family lives in Europe. My school, university friends and teachers are living in USA and Europe. My study, guidelines from my school and university were fully US based which made me the way I am now. I got questions in university, my current company employer before hiring me like they asks me if I am from another country or not because I have English accent and my outlook is Asian which shows mixed appearance about me. This mixed look is not good here because I got haters more than well wishers here. But that doesn't hurt me at all. I still believe in reality and walk on my way.

I think boring tunel doesn’t make any sense. If it would be like euro tunnel in Folkestone then it would make sense. Now it looks like he did it for himself or people that work in his companies, it is not useful for people who want to escape traffic.

Maybe he did do it for himself and his company.
You shouldn't blame him you should blame the people who allowed him to build it and cut out other people from using it.

Is Dasani bottled water still an option when satisfying thirst?

Jyrice_music’s Profile PhotoJyrice
Considering it contains a bunch of salt it honestly just makes you more thirsty and it's really not good for people that have slight or even high blood pressure issues. I know a fella that had blood pressure issues and he started to drink the water and it was worth seeing the condition he was in the doctor told me to stop drinking it and that's the day I found out it have salt in it. I also have taken a class on water. Where it comes from the cycles of it. How companies actually go about getting the water. Different types of water and where it's from like groundwater spring water mineral water salt water. And then of course we learned about weather. Really fun very informational

What is your opinion about the quality and durability of the equipment purchased today? Was the equipment bought in the past more durable?

KubaGR571’s Profile Photo¥ Kuba GR =)=
It was definitely more durable in the past!! The products that are being made today have a much shorter lifespan because the materials are cheaper and less strong.
There is a reason the warranty is often only 2 years, because shortly after that the product will break and you’ll have to buy a new one.
It’s all about money, but the companies really don’t think of all the waste they produce… it’s a shame.

If you had the authority or the legitimate power to control the global market and the economy today. How would you feel and react?

For starters I would feel honoured to control the world. I mean, when you can control the global market you're basically in control of everything. I would introduce Universal Basic Income so that everyone can get $1k a month at least. Screw how much it costs in the budget because our lives is a human right, not an experiment. We have every right to have money coming into our lives every single month for living on this beautiful planet.
I would eliminate taxes for anyone making under $50k a year. I don't think taxes need to be paid by people who are struggling enough as it is. I feel the top 1% can fill in that void. Just to clarify, I don't dislike rich people, but I also believe if you're making 7, 8, 9 figures a year, you can easily pay your fair share in taxes. That should be part of the job. If I were wealthy, I'd have no problems paying taxes. If you're truly wealthy, you would have no issues giving some of it up. I feel those who are hoarding on money still operate from a scarcity mindset. They're afraid it'll all disappear, or that it's the most amount of money they'll ever have in their lives.
To add onto that, I would force big corporations to donate 10% of their net income to one of 3 things -- taxes, eradication of world poverty, or helping underdeveloped nations. If they don't comply (meaning they don't donate upon request at the end of the fiscal year), then it's 30% - meaning they're forced to donate 10% of their net income for each of the 3 things - no questions asked. I would force the money to come out of their pockets. No need for trials or lawsuits - just pure force. It would be like a magic trick.
Small businesses can open up for free of charge for a 6 month trial period. The buildings would be paid for via tax money. After 6 months they will be given a review. If they've made a profit in 2 consecutive quarters, then they'll operate under normal rules. No financial aid. If they haven't made a profit, they will be given 6 additional months + some financial aid without exceptions. They need to be profitable, so I would go the extra mile to help them out. At some point they have to turn a profit. I wouldn't force them to shut down if they lost money. That's up to them.
Credit card debt, student loan debt, bankruptcies, foreclosures would cease to exist. So, no need to worry about missing a credit card payment or your rent payment. That's all taken care of.
On top of that, I would probably not give a single f*ck and force all telecommunications companies to go out of business. How? By making internet, cable, and mobile services free of charge. Screw all of them. I want everyone to have access to technology, and having them raise prices is only making me wish they could all go out of business. So I'd force them to shut down whether they like it or not.
I'm also not trained in economics, so no clue how much of this is even possible, but then again, I have all the control, so that means anything goes :p

Creative Question time Könnt ihr mir einen Oc aus einer anderen Geschichte nennen mit dem Jeder eurer derzeit Aktiven Ocs entweder eine Bro oder eine Sismance oder eine Beziehung hätte? Bitte vergesst nicht bei beiden Ocs die MMFF Titel zu nennen.

Lostgirl_inidenty’s Profile PhotoDonata
(ich hoffe ich hab die frage jetzt richtig verstanden my brain goes beep boop)
(außerdem habe ich auch ein paar meiner nicht-mmff oc's dazu geholt weil sich 80% der leute hassen würden und ich voll (drago) der rebell bin)
ich hab ja schon mal etabliert dass ambrose (taj), insu und shixin (uwus) entweder best friends oder die größten feinde wären, und dabei bleibe ich auch. besties forever, und wenn insu sich mal nicht mit seinen eigenen connections aus der schlinge zieht ruft er halt shixin an, der regelt das. :p (und ambrose sitzt irgendwo im publikum)
takuya (fmn) und mercedes (our house) würden sich auch gut verstehen, wenn wir mal die sprachbarriere subtrahieren und etwas alkohol addieren. die beiden kämen klar.
yjrö (hihh) ist viel zu alt um sich mit irgendeinem meiner mmff-oc's anzufreunden (außer vielleicht insu aber da gefriert erst die hölle), also schreibe ich ihm eine freundschaft mit yael zu. y-bros. bart-bros. (außerdem hat yael zu yrjö's zeit auch schon gelebt. :'))
enid (hihh) ist auch...kompliziert, mit anderen mmff-ocs. aber mit yihwa, mit der käme sie klar. pretty clothes, money and their own companies, what more could you want.
signe (sanguis) ist pures chaos und braucht pures chaos als ausgleich - wobei ich der meinung bin dass sie und mercie sich nicht leiden können würden. ich schiebe ihr noel als best bro zu, der ist nicht nur sehr weltoffen, sondern ein wachechter cryptid, da wäre signe SOFORT dabei.
neele (bielefeld) ist eine..."außenseiterin" in dem sinne, dass sie viel zu lieb und nett und einfach sunshine ist. sie sollte man nicht runterziehen, da fällt so ziemlich jeder weg. :( (aber vielleicht könnte sie mit almeric gärtnern und ein paar der andauernd auftauchenden waldtiere streicheln)
keine beziehungen, keiner passt zueinander - weder nach charakter noch nach sexualität, lol.

Hi tita! I started working on this start-up company for a month now. Good pay naman but no work-life balance, may times colleagues will message me at 11:00 pm, sometimes may pinapagawa on a weekend. I don't know what to do po but it's really draining and I couldn't relax during my free time

The reward for good work is more work. What you allow will continue. Companies will take from you what you will give. What happens if you don't touch your phone after work hours and only get back to them on Monday mornings? Will they see that as poor performance or will they ask someone else? Try not replying to the evening and weekend requests. Or say "I'll work on this first thing in the morning/Monday." What would they do? Try it and see. You might also learn that this job might not be for you. Do you get overtime? Because that's illegal if you don't. It's not possible in all jobs (which is why I have an irrelevant job), but I don't touch my work phone after 5:30 and definitely don't touch it on weekends or on vacation. What I miss is what I miss and they can evaluate me based on my performance during work hours. Guess what they do with the after-hours requests? They give it to the person who responds 24/7. And that person complains that they work 24/7. Companies will take everything you're willing to give.

if you could work for a social media management company (local or international), which would you choose and why? 💻📱💬

nurbzee’s Profile Photobday fundraiser: link in bio ✨
I have no idea, tbh! I get social media jobs recommended a lot as due to being in the arts and despite what you’d think, it’s actually a crazy amount of work for just a junior level and for only one person?! 👀 Either that, or companies really hype it up in the job descriptions, aha. It’s like being a copywriter, assistant, designer, filmmaker, film editor, marketing manager and all sorts, rolled into one. I wouldn’t mind it, but it’d have to be a brand I’d genuinely want to work with - such as a small
business who’s products I like, or something creative still, etc :)

AsSalam Alaykom Mr. Jarrar ^^ jazzakAllahu Khair for taking the time to answer these messages Questions regarding Islamic Finance: 1. How does a muslim build his credit in Canada 2. What is this 5% permissibility I see in haram investments in halal portfolios? 3. Is Koho/Manzil Visa legit? JAK!

Alaikum assalam.
1. There are some options that are 100% halal, and some have some Haram that you can get but avoid the Haram part.
A. You can lease a car (any car lease in Canada is 100% halal, 100% of time.)
B. Having a phone line on a regular plan (or getting a phone on a plan) also shows on your credit report, is 100% halal.
C. You can apply for one of these no interest financing cards like the ones from big box stores (Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Brick etc). While these contain a prohibition because they would charge interest if you're late, if you need it, and buy something on 0% interest on installments, and are certain you can pay the required monthly payment without missing payment and this incurring interest, then, and only then, it would be permissible, although discouraged to do so.
D. Last is to get a credit card, only use it when you can pay the full amount in full within the grace period. Or better yet, get the credit card and cut it in half or lock it in a safe only to be used in emergencies. The fact that you have a credit that you're not utilizing will give you a boost to your credit score.
2. You're responsible for earning 100% halal, and spending 100% halal. But the people you buy or sell to, their entire income doesn't need to be 100% halal. The scholars say it's ok to trade with someone, or be employed under, or invest your money with, as long as:
A. The contract between you and them is 100% halal.
B. At least 67% of their earnings are halal.
The 5% is an arbitrary figure that scholars have decided on with regards to point B, not A, to push people as much as possible from working or investing with companies that have a significant minority of Haram income.
3. They're legit, I wrote a guide about them - without their knowledge or consultation, feel free to PM me on Facebook and I'll send it to you.

حابة اعرف رأيك ايه في ال high tech companies دلوقتي ؟ و واحد مثلا زي ايلون ماسك او مارك او ستيف جوبز سابقا برغم ان كلهم بيقولوا ان ممكن تحقق الي انت عايزه وتبقي في نفس مكانتهم و quotes كلها طموح انا مش مقتنعة بدا خالص و حاسة ان الموضوع مستحيل و الصدفة لعبت عامل اكبر بكتير جدا من تعبهم او شغلهم

الحظ له دور مش قليل معاهم، بس الحظ دا عايش في مستوى عشان نقول إن شخص دا محظوظ وملازمه الحظ لازم يبقى شخص بي operate في نفس المستوى اللي الحظ بيتحرك فيه. يعني من غير مجهود وذكاء عالي وفهم لتعقيدات الواقع وإرث أيا يكن شكله يساعد الشخص إنه يطلع للمستوى دا فالحظ مش هيعينه كتير. الناس دي قدرت تخلى الحظ يتكاثر بين ايديها ويبقى sustainable. كام واحد ورث ثروة أو كسب lottery وضيعها؟ كتير. كام واحد قدر يستغل فرص ويولد منها فرص ويخلق شجرة مستدامة؟ نوادر. اللي انتي ذكرتيهم عندهم أداة خلق الاستدامة، الحظ لما بيقع في ايدهم بيخلوه يتناسل. مش كل ااناس عندها الكور دا، مش كل الناس ذكية ومجتهدة وفي ظروف تسمح لها تحقق كتير. بالعكس معظم الناس فقيرة ومفتقرة لكل الأدوات اللي الناس دي بيمتلكوها.

I currently feel stuck in my chosen career. I have been moving from diff companies only to get the same wretched feeling every time. I'm not sure if this is a sign for me to move on to another industry or is it me being weak and intolerable. Is it okay for me to switch careers if I feel miserable?

You can switch careers, industries, homes, relationships, countries, friends, and almost anything for any reason. You don't have to justify it. How about taking a sabbatical? Take a step back, maybe a few weeks or months off (hello, emergency fund) to think about your next steps. You don't have to act right away but make a plan. Maybe you have to save some money first, find a different job, but at least you'll have a plan. Good luck and let us all know how it turns out!

Is mining the moon for it's resources (Helium 3 etc) a good idea in your opinion? Also should a single country be allowed to colonize the moon and effectively claim Sovereignty over it?? 😳

Those are both really interesting questions!
1. I'd be fearful that it would be overmined and throw off all the effects it has on the Earth and it's inhabitants.
2. No. Just like the Earth, no country should be in a position to claim complete Sovereignty. I believe mining the moon for rare elements or even for water is inevitable. The matter of sovereignty is complex, and I hope some kind of international agreement can be reached to allow private companies to mine and to regulate the mining processes. Future crewed missions to Mars and moons of other planets will depend on oxygen and hydrogen mined from lunar ice and processed in lunar orbit.
