Now, if you guys don't think the kids today are doing amazing things (and since March 21st was Incredible Kids Day), let me highlight one of them right here, who I've mentioned before... :D

And if things go her way (We can only hope... [-o< ), she could be the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, and IMHO deservedly so...

When you see some of these youngsters, with incredibly mature abilities, you have to wonder if there is something to the theories of reincarnation.

Cheers,

Agreed! Makes you wonder if Einstein sold his DNA to a clandestine lab for cloning???!
If I come back in a "second life"......I'd like to return as ME....and NOT make the same mistakes I made in my FIRST life!!:)
Now....is THAT too much to ask???!

I've mentioned her here before, but the more I read about her, the more I think she might just change the world...As Don McLean once sang about Vincent, "They would not listen...They did not know how...Perhaps they'll listen now..."

Here's another one I recently stumbled onto...A kid that knows his way around a reel to reel player...



His Teac sounds great, too!



Plus, he's got a few licks in him! 8) =D>



Gives me hope for the future of analog! :D

Next, check out this kid who discovered a solution for his dad's diabetes at age 18! :shock:

He has some other great ideas, too, for agricultural waste...



I think we need more Javiers to think outside the box... :-k

I'm sorry but THIS kid right here is just my speed...I only WISH I could have been as productive when I was his age...Talking about saving the planet and keeping stuff out of the landfills one piece of junk at a time!



Now, I don't know about bending the records per se, but still...It's like "Sanford and Son" without the Sanford! :wink:

On "American Pickers", they even found a young man who has taken an interest in collecting old stuff...



I collected stuff from very young and there's probably a reason I didn't throw a lot of cool stuff away! :wink:
