Oh, don't worry, he'll go crazy in a few years. Geniuses always do.
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

I have a history of mental illness in my family, I guess that makes me a genius.

Pretty impressive, except for the community college part.

(And no, I'm not just jealous because I'm still a freshman. :| )

I almost went back to school. Decided against it.

Poor kid, I can't say much becuase I don't know if it was really his decision, but I doubt it. It was probably the parents, big mistake IMO. No matter how intelligent someone is, or mature for their age, there are limits. This poor kid will probably have deep emotional problems from being taken out of his proper life, and I hope he makes it past twenty.

And wasn't there a similar story just a while back about a young girl named Alia who'd just been made a college prof?

Anomalies like these come with the territory. Doesn't change the most important statistic, however:

Half of the population is below average intelligence. :D
