RAEL’S COMMENT: And I am sure this genius suffers every day from dumb adults who tell her how to behave and what to do; because even if she is a genius, she doesn’t have their “maturity”… Like Georges Brassens sings: an idiot is an idiot, whether he is a teenager or an old man… The age of majority should not be about the number of years but the intelligence level. Why an 18 years old idiot can be independent and manage his life the way he wishes and a 12 years old genius cannot? That makes a very stupid planet.

A 12-year-old daughter of migrant Roma workers in England is raising the bar on human intelligence, much to the delight of her family and community.
