Maybe it's Reincarnation and his past life hasn't fully faded yet. Sounds like he's on track to becoming a genius.

I had a bf who was a member of Mensa. He never brought it up or bragged about it, in fact, I think I actually learned it from one of his friends. He was whip-smart and sexy and (contrary to the stereotype) an amazing lay.

He's cute. Love the little nerd glasses.

Portishead was formed in 1991 and he doesn’t appear at all the trip hop and/or alternative rock type.

I could read at three.

No, R5. You not.

r5 My mother told me I was reading at 2. And indeed, my vocabulary always tested sky-high and I was reading (and comprehending) adult non-fiction/fiction at a very early age.

He’s adorable.

Sure but can he throw a ball?

I’m a member of MENSA. Went and did the test for a lark with a former roommate. About 3 people know and I’m certainly not a successful person career wise or financially. I hope this little guy has a childhood and they don’t have him taking college courses when he’s still a child.

[post redacted because linking to dailymail.co.uk clearly indicates that the poster is either a troll or an idiot (probably both, honestly.) Our advice is that you just ignore this poster but whatever you do, don't click on any link to this putrid rag.]

I’m like a genius.

Only not as smart.

The Fail says his IQ is 139. I guess MENSA will let anyone in now.

Mensa is supposed to be only top 2% in IQ tests, right?

Get a stool and put this kid on Jeopardy.
