    Rich and stupid. Unfortunately I was born poor and relatively smart and it hasn't really done me many favours.

    Smart but born to a poor family.

    In the UK, even if you are quite poor, you'd still be better off than most middle class families in developing countries. You'd still get at least some basic food and receive a free education, allowing you to become who want to be in the future.

    Personally, I am definitely not from a rich family but, luckily I am quite smart so, thanks to Britain, I can achieve my dreams if I work hard enough!
    Adding on, even being from a 'developed' country. The mentality and mindset here seems to still be of a developing country.

    Definitely smart. I'm probably already from a "deprived" area of London anyway and I would use my intelligence to get me far in life. Yes I do realise that good grades doesn't = money but let's say I do incredibly well in school and end up in Oxbridge, I'll probably have a greater chance of a higher paid jobs and with that invest money into shares and stocks .

    If you're dumb but rich, chances are you won't know how to manage that money well and would probably end up blowing up a good chunk of it e.g. won't invest, may buy a car etc instead.

    smart. I couldn't imagine being stupid. If you were stupid you'd just spend your money on stupid things, like android.
    attention all android users, shots have been fired, i repeat shots have been fired.

    Guys, just what is wrong with having handed everything? Sometimes I disagree with it...maybe because I am jealous of them.

    Tbh, as someone who's been born with both (subjectively), I'd rather be rich. Could get a job with connections and if all else fails, well who cares you're rich.

    I'm saying that although the country is labelled as developed. The way of life feels as if the country is just developing.

    Question: Would you want to remain poor and smart (forever), OR would you like to remain rich and unintelligent (forever)?

    That's weird. It's almost as if you're implying that you're smart. :rofl: From your post record I'd wager your IQ to be in the single digits (not to say IQ is the only measure of intelligence - Maybe you're a savant at being a moron?)

    Smart and poor, as I was born.

    A few changes to a couple of decisions in life and I'd be quite flush by now.
