I`m in shock.
He obviously worked his ass off to get where he is and I think the only way his foreign birth and upbringing influenced him is that he`s not a lazy non-nice individual like 99% of the north american youth... why does being stupid, mediocre and apathetic have to be so cool? I am a victim of this belief just like most people my age and younger, and it`s disgusting, we need to take pride in the things we do everyday and we need to appreciate hard work over easy ways out and maybe one day all our children will be intelligent, hard-working and motivated but still humble about it.
Anyways, he just passes off as a nerd because he came here as a teen and had to learn English from scratch. It`s like when you whities try speaking spanish.
btw, i met someone like that, `cept he was autisticguy was really smart :)
Hope he does great at Harvard.
i started laughin when he came on
Today a group of internet-connected underachievers demonstrated their short-sightedness by taking advantage of an opportunity to poke fun at the man who will, in just a few short years, be able to buy and sell them on a whim. It`s unclear whether the largely under-educated and ill-informed group of young hooligans is capable of communicating on a rational level - and so for the benefit of those intelligent souls out there, a translation of their comments can be found below
Ha ha he is a nerd/talks funny/is a loser/etc Tranlation-I am a loser and I believe my best chance at appearing to be his equal is to try to demean him(p.s. you`re still a loser)
Ivey League schools suck Translation:I wasn`t accepted(stupid)/can`t afford 2 go there(lazy)
He`s smug/cocky Translation:I wish I were him.
He doesn`t seem so smart.Translation:My IQ is 43.
If it wasn`t for people like him, you`d be sitting in the dark with no internet.
These would be the same people who would easily ostracize those of a different skin colour. Regardless of their target-de-jour, these bigots are a detriment to society.
i believe we should destroy all community colleges. it gives children hope that they can totally blow off high school but still graduate from a college and get a real job.
without them people would have to take high school seriously, and EARN their education.
Come back and bitch when you get accepted to all the top schools!
Maybe in your world :-PJust because you didn`t hear about any other, not even about the countries they are in, doesn`t mean, it`s the best in the world. :-P
Just hope he uses it rather than becoming like that 13 y/o child prodigy-turned-£130-an-hour-prostitute
Ok, honestly I`d LOVe to see him fall flat on his face... but admit it, we`re all jealous of him (even though my degree/ job is EXACTLY what I want to do - still jealous of the geekiness
Thumbs up to you, kiddo. Although I wouldn`t have chosen Harvard...that institution always pissed me off for some reason. Must`ve been because of the movie Love Story.
I see thanks.
I`m not saying he isn`t some crazy brilliant kid but I do not see anything in this tiny little interview that makes him some uber genius
for all the girls saying hes cute- i agree if he would just wash the greese outta his hair and maybe... not wear such a up-tight looking suit?
lol what do i know?
"but... it`s harvard."such bullpoo. harvard is not as great as people think--especially among the other institutions named, what harvard has is a reputation, a bloated endowment, and an overinflated ego. it`s a good school, but does not deserve the reputation it has as the school to end all schools. its not.
I can`t explain it >.<
i still f*cking hate `im.
HOORAY FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGE!!! the only chance some of us will ever get to further our educations and make us employable!
I turned down Caltech because of the geeks. It takes a special breed to go there. :-?
I sort of want to know his childhood past, though, you know? How he was raised and if he was like.... a normal boy that pushed down girls and threw mud balls and hated his math teachers.
I hated kids like that at school. I beat this nerd at "how fast can you type" test in computer class, he never spoke to me again :(
Last I heard he was flippin burgers at McDonalds
After watching the whole thing he sounds pretty humble about it. Just workin` hard is all, I suppose.
