  1. Dear sir I am dumb compared to this genius kid n his brother. I ran the streets. I got a great career. But these kids are going to be running companies by the age of 22. Also they can retire very early cuz they going be making over six figures eazy. 🙏🙏🙏

  2. When I was 5, I was in…

    Kindergarten, I think. 2nd grade is 7 years old, so -1 is 6… yeah, kindergarten?

    Wtf, I was even confused and hated doing basic algebra during 6th grade.

  3. THE MORE YOU KNOW… For a news channel, you would think the grammar would be better in the title. You don’t graduate college or high school. You graduate from high school and college.

  4. God bless their family. This is what happens when a child is raised in a healthy environment with supportive parents and supportive teachers.

  5. i remember watching this and thinking he was doing super complicated stuff on the board. now that i know the physics he’s doing, he’s actually not even doing anything important except writing equations that have no use just plopping down on the board lol

  6. Shoutout to the mom, she did a GREAT job raising those young men..HOWEVER..I 100% believe that this is possible for many other kids with the right amount of attention and nurturing.

  7. Well, Not Impressive to me 'cos there are many like him in this world and ya Einstein ,Hawking, Faraday, Tesla, and many more were not like him . So, If this kid discovers or invents something new and innovative that someone had not done it before in past. Then, I would be really Impressed.

  8. if he and his brother are so accelerated, its clear that their mother is abusive and forcing her children to study super hard. if their mom is just doing it so that she gets famous/her children gets famous, its sad parenting.

  9. Okay news flash everybody: there is so many of these young geniuses that it's no longer newsworthy there is just smarter people out there period. I am done watching these.
