His name is Laurent Simons and he's only 9-years-old and already a brilliant prodigy enrolled in college. His father took him out of the university when they told him that his son could not graduate before he turned 10, despite previously assuring he could do.
To make things worse, we have a teenage Greta Thunberg gallivanting around the world and lecturing us about climate change, then winning Time's person of the year award. Meanwhile, this kid who's actually smart just wants to be at school and get his degree - something Greta might find hard to do if she doesn't ever go to class.
As seen on LiveLeak:
Laurent Simons was studying electrical engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology, located in the Netherlands, before his parents withdrew him from the school this month.
He was reportedly supposed to complete his three-year degree within 10 months, so that he could graduate before his birthday on Dec. 26 and become the first person to graduate college under the age of 10, BBC News reported.
But despite Eindhoven’s initial reassurance that Laurent could graduate, the school backtracked, claiming there were too many exams he needed to take and that it was not practical for a 9-year-old boy to develop “insight, creativity and critical analysis” in such a short time frame.
The school said Laurent has “unprecedented talent,” but cautioned against the idea of placing “excessive pressure on this 9-year-old student” and reportedly offered the child a graduate date for mid-2020, but the boy’s father, Alexander Simons, declined, and opted to pull Laurent from the college.
This kid deserves an award before Greta Thunberg does.
He actually has something to offer the world other then yelling at people, saying "HOW DARE YOU!"Source: liveleak
