Do you ever feel alone irl because you cant talk about the stuff you enjoy with anyone? In Nepal average IQ level is legit bordering on retardation. Any serious subject is viewed as pretentiousness, and often they are indeed mentioned with pretense in mind, which creates a culture.
For example I like reading and when I try to have a serious book talk it’s often mocked as uptight and arrogant and at the same time the book is considered a fetish object to signify wisdom, but to the point that the population reads so little that any book whatsoever, even the stupidest self help slop, grants someone the image of intellectual for the majority of people around them, and people mistake fancy words for deep thought. Its frustrating.Thats a bit of my experience, I want to know yours
