I saw the above clip of the 7 year old boy who allegedly has an IQ over 10 points higher than Albert Einstien the other day and was really impressed.
For about a minute.
Then I realized that the kid just basically has an awesome memory. Granted, he can name all the Presidents in the order they spent in office, he can recite the alphabet backwards, you can give him any date between January 1st, 2000 and today and he can tell you the day of the week, but like, so could Raymond Babbit, and a lot of other idiot savants, and pretty much anyone who really had too.
Maybe I'm hating, I'm just saying I'm not ready to call this kid a "genius" until I see him flex some critical thinking and problem solving skills.
In all the hype about him, I'm shocked that nobody has been talking about the 7 day old child who spoke the other day.
That's really impressive, check out the video if you havn't seen it:
