Something Interesting Thread

Indeed. You may think you're smart, but those high level* theoretical math and physics guys are on a whole 'nother plane of intellect.

*those Physics PhDs at Princeton that Bezos talks about would qualify as "high level"
Bezos combines a very high intelligence with good business sense, hard work, and ruthlessness.

You could say the same about Musk and a lot of these tech billionaires.

This is not a new concept, and has been happening for decades, just like oil company employees borrowing from bank to live in Europe and escape paying taxes in Britain.
Detroit Lions quarterback Bobby Layne, who was born in Santa Anna, Texas, grew up on a farm in Coleman County, and graduated from Highland Park High School in Dallas, at his drunk driving trial in December, 1957.

The arresting officer testified that, when asked why he was slurring, Layne denied that he was and said “Ah ain’t drunk…..Ah’m from Texas.” After listening to the way Bobby talked, the jury acquitted him and the Lions went on to win their last championship.
