These aunties expressed my sentiments quite aptly and colorfully. (WARNING: If bad language leads to pearl clutching on your part, DO NOT click on this link. I take no responsibility for what you are about to hear! ) Jokes aside I recently found my tribes. Two forums that better reflect my world view and my interests. One of them is a high octane version of E&PG — doctors, mathematicians, economists, physicists and the like. For months I just quietly read because I was too embarrassed to talk. It's fun now. The other one is a desi hangout but with a very different demographic from IL, young professionals, mostly guys. So no, not that mad. Most people there take the same view of these events as I do which is heartening to read.
