That's pretty cool to hear the kid is a true genius. It's too bad his family lives in Illinois though. Hopefully his father can find some type of program that will challenge him.

The brain is a muscle
I don't like iQs
If you're joining mensa, reading books, and memorizing the periodic table at the age of 5 that's a pretty incredible achievement.
Hence I judge "intelligence" by what people achieve

I don't like iQs. The brain is a muscle and like any other muscle it can be developed. Our current understanding of the brain is very limited, so to try and put a measure on someone's intelligence and "potential intelligence" is really rather stupid, particularly at a young age. So the kid knows a few facts? Who the **** cares. Hence I judge "intelligence" by what people achieve, i.e. something that changes our perception of things. Whether its music (Mozart etc) or science (Einstein, Tesla, Newton) etc etc
