    -Women didn't get the vote until recently.

    Actually, if you read the sentence, "Does this indirectly means that you have been a class-VIII’s physics student earlier and then qualified for the advanced physics called quantum mechanics." ... it can be interpreted in the way I saw it. I always value your posts and your views on Advaita
