Agreed T, A lot face more difficulty in ordinary life..even though they're so gifted, but this kid seems unique. His social skills seem genuine and smooth. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and helping fellow students, and he is coming up with his 'theories' it's really exciting. :)

Child prodigies are cute, but all it means is they got a head start, how often do they actually turn out to be brilliant or even significant? There's a difference between learning something early because of an interest/obsession and intuitive thinking that leads to new ideas and innovations.
