Scary Smart...............

Check out this article on a 14 year old kid who became only the 32nd person to ever achieve a nuclear fusion reaction-
The Boy Who Played With Fusion.
"Shortly after his 14th birthday, Taylor and Brinsmead loaded deuterium fuel into the machine, brought up the power, and confirmed the presence of neutrons. With that, Taylor became the 32nd individual on the planet to achieve a nuclear-fusion reaction. Yet what would set Taylor apart from the others was not the machine itself but what he decided to do with it."

Having a kid that smart must be a hell of a challenge for a parent.

Fascinating story.
