    Of course. Its so sad, really. The dumb kids fight all day and the smart kids are worried about standardized testing. There is no incentive for outside-the-box thinking.

    1 in 450? In just 28 years? Yes, that is indeed very scary.

    1 in 450 is still very unlikely

    1 in 45,000 is ridiculous

    but as long as the Dolphins have a super bowl title by then i dont care!

    From that article:
    In any case, we are glad that this is the case. First, that a) this German kid is an idiot, b) the news agencies are stupid, and c) we are even more stupid for believing them. Still, our favorite tin foil hat theory is that this may all be a conspiracy to hide Humanity from the prospect of certain extinction. Your bet, in the poll:
    Jeez, anyone thinks he is atleast smart?

    I know, it's not as though he's the kid in the back of science class who fails every test.

    I'm guessing this kid is already working on his bachelor's degree, and these people are going all out on him.
