It's rare to see a child that's so gifted and so intelligent and isn't socially awkward. His parents are doing it right.

Holy moly thanks for the likes yall. Some people seem very unnerved by the comment, I just wanna let y'all know that I'm judging from first hand experiences I've had with multiple of my very intelligent friends on a daily basis.
