    Anne Frank wrote the final entry in her diary.

    Albert Einstein, with poor grades in geography, history and languages, dropped out of school.


    Those are some of mine, are those really accomplishments?

    (How I compare)

    At age 19:

    Writer Jean Cocteau published his first volume of poetry.
    (Ok so I had a poem published--in my HS literary mag. Does that count? Maybe? :-P )

    Gore Vidal, who never bothered with college, completed his first novel.
    (Umm... I`m bothering with college. Maybe that`s my problem...)

    Henry David Thoreau delivered a Harvard commencement address. Expanding on Emerson`s 1836 essay on "Nature", he proposed that man should work one day a week and leave six free for the "sublime revelations of nature."
    (I delivered a commencement address--to my graduating eighth grade class... Hmm, Harvard vs. Jr. High...)

    Horticulturist Luther Burbank read Charles Darwin`s book, The Variation of Animals and Plants Under Domestication. Inspired by this, he went on to create hundreds of new varieties of fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
    (I eat fruits and vegetables.)

    By eight weeks of age, Christian Friedrich Heinecken was speaking intelligible German. Many children can`t even speak English at that age.

    Holy sh*t.

    age 3: Christian Friedrich Heinecken could read German, French and Latin (though not English) and was a student of history and geography. A year later, he correctly predicted his imminent demise.

    Holy hell...this is just nuts.
    *****
    Brazilian Formula One race-car driver Ayrton Senna da Silva began driving go-karts at age 4. He stopped driving at 34.

    Wow glad whoever put that one in thought it was funny that he died racing. :-|
