    Gifted? More Like Cursed....

    I was tested throughout school and was classified as extremely gifted, and told that by many teachers. I was expected to go on and do great things, "You can be whatever you want" was a mantra I heard over and over again. Here's the problem with that, I don't know what I...

    Yes, EP is about speaking out on taboo topics.

    I'm a genius, my dad was a genius, my ex-brother-in-law is a genius, and my nephew is a genius. None of us are antisocial or strange.When EP questions come up regarding being a genius, there are as many different explanations as there are posters. Also, people really do not want...

    Not Book-wise...
