Do Politicians Know How The Internet Works?

Let's get this out of the way first. This is going to be the least grammatically correct post in TFTC history. I am not a writer. My only "claim to fame" for writing is 13 years ago when Barstool Sports was hiring a Philadelphia writer I knew his writing was too good to be from a Philadelphia school system and it turned out I was right (shout out Mo, great writer, better person) and he lived in Brooklyn and went to Rutgers but somehow that started the career that leads me to write this today. Anyway,

I think we need to build an "internet test" sort of like the driver test you take when you are 16 trying to borrow your mom's car to hopefully get to second base with the girl who is way smarter than you in your 7th-period geometry class for anyone over the age of 50 and especially for politicians.

I know Elizabeth Warren knows nothing about Bitcoin. We all do. We can all rant and rave on Twitter, and give our snarky remarks but really that does nothing. We need a true "internet test" for anyone over the age of 50 to see who actually has any idea what they are talking about on Bitcoin or Internet-related issues.

A car is a powerful tool, so is the internet and it's in every fabric of our lives so why the fuck do people get to talk about it and vote on it when they couldn't pass a simple "internet test" if it was mandatory? I got no clue but I need your help. Let's build an "internet test" A simple 10-20 question test that every time someone talks about Bitcoin or any other emerging technology we can just send to them and say "Take this so I know how fucking stupid you really are." There has to be a way to do this. If some developer is bored and wants to build this with me, email me because complaining on Twitter does nothing. Let's see if anyone in politics could pass the "2+2=4" of an internet test.
