  1. I met a guy who couldn't do his 9 times tables but one day I saw him fix a crashed computer in 5 minuets.

  2. most of these people are autistic. that makes me feel just a bit more better about my autism

  3. A lot of Prodigies have Autism, that's why they struggle to do simple things. I have Aspergers Syndrome and I am extremely good at Maths and Physics. But i'm not Autistic.

  4. I used to teach highly gifted students, yes they were smart, but oh my, oh my, inept, and socially awkward. During geometry, one girl would spend over 3 hours making the straightest line or most perfect circle possible, she would even break down when she couldn't do it. Another student would stand in the middle of the playground hollering Shakespeare quotes and wondered why everyone would look at him in a weird way and call him awful names. Another one was allergic to everything; dust, pencil lead, whiteboard markers, erasers, oranges, peanuts, poor kid couldn't sit 1 hour without breaking out in hives or sneezing to death. 3 of them would proudly wear their boy scout uniforms showing off their 500 patches, and didnt understand why other boys would beat them up all the timeoved them, but my god. I loved them, but the ridicule they endured.

  5. Your videos are great except for two things. 1) Consistently Conciliating Curiosity makes no sense. It means nothing. 2) Your pronunciation, articulation, and the style of your voice all suck. And your attempts at humor and cleverness usually fail. Videos are interesting though.
