Not just smart, but CONFIDENT! I mean, he's what...somewhere around 10 or 12? How many kids like that can even talk to adults in complete sentences representing fully formed ideas, all when in an emotional state? Especially when that adult is assuming the position of authority figure, over that kids own parents?
The kid's going to be president. Or maybe a very influential producer of interactive cyberbrain pornography. Either way, he's going to make a mark on the world (assuming he doesn't die young from complications of diabetes).
