Child prodigy Carson Huey-You,11, starts freshman year at college

I hate kids.
He's studying physics.

Here's string theorist Luboš Motl, where I first saw the story:
...He's been reading approximately since his 2nd birthday. He knew the five basic mathematical operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the Feynman path integral – a year later....

...At any rate, 11 years is a wonderful age to start with quantum physics. I would guess that it's low enough age so that if you start to learn related physics insights at this age, you are more likely to avoid Bohmian, Everettian, GRWian, material collapsian, and other delusions denying some fundamental and universal postulates of quantum mechanics....
I hate adults too.

I feel old.
