A question of limitation

Disability Scoop logoIn a story reminiscent of the Rain Man, a 12-year old with Asperger’s in the US is putting everyone to shame and blowing through Graduate-level physics classes with ease. I caught this story on Disability Scoop yesterday, who explain the boy has an IQ of 170, which is about 160 points higher than me (give or take 10 points). Not only is he kicking ass and taking names in the class room, apparently he’s developed a new theory that could put him in the running for a Nobel Peace Prize. No big deal, what 12 year-old isn’t in the running for one of those?
