Smart Kids: From Carl Sagan to Colonel Kurtz

This kid really gets it. Let’s hope he doesn’t run into a nest of fire
ants or a swarm of giant South American army ants that devastate
anything or anyone in their path. Not only will it fuck up his budding
cosmology but it will make him realize what a scourge human beings are
as an apex species. He’ll go from being a secular humanist with
existential leanings to a Colonel Kurtz (“the horror”) nihilist with
violent anarchist tendencies overnight. I’m guessing these guys are
home-schooled to prevent them from being treated like brainiac lepers
by other kids at public school or even worse…like Simon and
Piggy in Lord of the Flies. We need more kids with nimble working minds
and big thoughts like these cool little dudes. I have a good vibe about the
dad too.
