I'm smarter than you. (via KXTV)
You can stop bragging about whatever it is you were just about to brag about. A 10-year-old kid just got his high school diploma.
At the age of four, Tanishq Abraham was the youngest person to be admitted to MENSA, the high IQ society. By seven he abandoned the losers at his public school to be homeschooled by his parents, although in an interview with Reuters, his mother admits he was mostly self-taught.
"The way my brain works is that when you give me something, information about that topic comes into my mind. I don't know what it is but that's how it is for me," said Abraham.
But where is that information coming from? The way he describes his intelligence is the way my psychic told me she had a vision about which hair conditioner I should be using.
He actually finished his early exit high school exam in March, but he was too busy taking classes at a local community college to bother with receiving his HS diploma. This means, somewhere an American River College student is getting drunk in a bar because they got a B on a test where the curve was set by someone who is closer in age to a fetus than a person who is allowed to get drunk in a bar.
After Abraham gets his associates degree (why bother?), he will attend UC Davis because it is close to home, because he is a tiny child.
"My ultimate goal would be science, like scientist or doctor, but I also want to be president too," Abraham said.
Awww, I love 10-year-old geniuses. Smart enough to possibly cure cancer, too naive to understand that "being president" would be a total waste of his intellect.
