    I found this fascinating, and the page encourages you to share the "infographic" on your site, so I'm doing so!  Just click on one of the options to enlarge the image so you can see it Sunny

    Interesting. I feel sorry for Judit Polgar.  Children shouldn't be experiments!  Even if they are successful experiments.  I wonder if they (Judit and her sisters) got to pick their specialty.  Probably not, since the education started when they were very young.  
    I've never put much stock in IQs.  There are so many smart people who never take the test, or are given a chance too.  Plus, there are those who do take it, think they are geniuses, and we all know they aren't!  Or, they are, but totally useless!  
    It was a fun thing to read though!  Thanks.  (James Woods, huh... is it odd I always thought he was kinda cute?)

    lol~ (re: James Woods)  I really loved him in that movie with Michael J. Fox... what was it?  Right, The Hard Way!

    IQ tests can only measure so much, and if you have splinter skills (like most autistics out there...) you really can't accurately give a rating.

    Still, I loved reading about some of the things these people have accomplished.  I was especially taken by Kim Ung-Yong's tidbits!

    EDIT:  Wait... that didn't sound right! OH!  Rewording...

    I was especially interested in the tidbits about Kim Ung-Yong! Elk grinBelly laugh

    Lol, genki.

    And I've always thought James Woods was interesting, as an actor and as a person.

    On Big Bang Theory, when Sheldon asks Penny if she knows who Stephen Hawkins is,
    she answered  "The guy who invented time"Belly laugh
