    might have to worry about a G.E.D. instead

    Scars are like tattoos….except with better stories.

    I would like to point out that at M.I.T. there is an annual ritual of tossing objects from one of the buildings… a “physics experiment” if I remember correctly. And they used a Frat brother to measure the bridge – google “Smoot”. He could still end up at M.I.T. Curiousity and seeking the thrill of first hand exploration are NOT counterindicated for M.I.T. Especially at his age. :-)

    . . .This is why he’s racing off of grim-reaper gulch. He doesn’t want to go to M.I.T. and study engineering. He knows his math background is inadequate for that, even though his dad is oblivious. His dad just told him he can easily pick up the needed math quickly while at the same time studying engineering.
    . . .In fact, everything in life is not just easy, it’s super easy! You just gotta want to do it! However, expecting your mother to be somewhat reasonable – that’s completely impossible. So you gotta work around that.

    I wonder how this kid knows that his parents had been spelling things in front of him? Does he remember it happening? Or did they tell him about it later? Curious, as I was speaking yesterday with a friend about earliest childhood memories. This friend had worked for a prominent scholar and government figure who claimed to remember being born. That’s right: emerging from the birth canal.

    Yep. It’s tough doing it.

    bigpuma: With me, it was the opposite. I learned to recognize letters by three, so I learned to read by asking what does … spell? Fortunately, there was little graffiti in those days.

    @bigpuma

    Kids are pretty sharp. My parents stopped spelling things in front of me when I said I too wanted I-C-E C-R-E-A-M. That happened almost 50 years ago, and I remember it to this day. As for what I had for breakfast yesterday… that’s another story altogether.

    I hear those X-Games participants can earn a fairly decent paycheck…

    Guess we have three things going on here: cognition, memory, and memory of cognition.

    Smart dog. I wonder if one of those words important to your dog is V-E-T.
