    Seriously?

    Okay sure, I’m a smart person I’ll admit that but a genius? I don’t think so. Professor Einstein, genius. Professor Stephen Hawking, genius. Dr Carl Sagan, genius. Dr Timothy Leary, psychedelic genius. Me, I’m just a dude that enjoys reading books and playing D&D and...

    MIND Your Eq Not Only Iq! and Neither Estimation Or Qualification Can Ever Say What a Person Truly Is

    My Son

    Okay, I am NOT the genius. My son is. He is 13, and was labeled for lack of a better term, A Genius when he was 8. It wasn't too hard to keep up with him until last year. He just can't seem to find anything to satisfy his boredom other than video games. And by video games, I mean...
