@miasmaat, He's still a kid, he's got a lot of time to learn, and I don't think he will get killed so soon.

@miasmaat is that your iris sweetie? If it's your right one, there may be a health issue with your lungs. Your metallic & sulfer content is very high for your age.

This may sound a little cuckoo but won't hurt to get it checked.

intelligent people who are fcking stupid. The country is not in a bad way because the community is not focused and able to debate issues. A radio station will not change the nation. There are more complex issues involved on both a national and international level. Try and direct your prodigal mind to the actual core of what is keeping your people in poverty. The sad thing is that all the MIT people working with this kid KNOW that he is embarking on a fruitless endeavor. He will stir up public disgruntlement with the status quo and then he will be killed. It will change NOTHING. With a mind like this, it is a wretched waste! He should stay out of Sierra Leone for ten years or so until he has developed a broader understanding of the world.

The "Bee-Man Lion Generator" rules! Such people change the world. I wonder how many geniuses stay undetected somewhere in the World.

Great piece! Nurturing this kind of kid and helping them become known in their communities will help foster a new way of looking at the problems they face over there. Kids like this show that, no matter how rough things seem to get, there is still hope for the future.

People of Sierra Leone are really good looking!
Sweet kid, hope MIT snatches him when he ready.

He will so much better if he had access to Brian's band connection & a computer.
The investment that will bring the biggest return( social) in Africa is tech infrastructure development.
