    Tl;dr: He's 12, has Aspergers and with it an IQ of 170. He taught himself calculus, algebra, geometry and trigonometry in a week, is about to finish University and has been lined up to do research for a PhD.

    Oh and another small thing; he has his own expanded version of Einstein's theory of relativity...

    Lol so many negs... Do I smell jealousy TSR? :rolleyes:

    That's Aspergers for you. A lot of child prodigies are socially stunted, not that it makes his achievements any less impressive.
