As I was surfing the Daily Universe site for Tiffany in all her graduation glory I saw the statistics from this year's graduating class. The youngest graduate was 19. NINETEEN! Who the heck is that smart? Have they always been that smart?
So later on I was watching TV with the fam and we watched this show called "House". It's a medical show about a Dr. House who works at some specialized research hospital and has the most fantastically caustic sense of humor. My mom is in love with him.
Anyway, in a Steinbeckesque fashion, the main storyline occasionally cut away for a small, turtle-crossing-the-roadish story about this teenager (Twitty on "Even Stevens") who is babysitting his twoish-year-old brother who keeps sticking things up his nose because Twitty (not his name but not the point) did that magic trick where he pulled a coin out of his (the baby's) nose.
So first the baby comes in and he has this tiny little toy policeman up his nose. House pulls it out with tweezers. The next day it's a tiny little fireman toy. House pulls it out with tweezers. The next day it's a not so tiny fire truck toy. Out come the tweezers once again. Stupid kid, right? WRONG!
House, in his creepishly-amazing "I know everything in the world" attitude realizes that the boy is in fact a genius so he of course gets a high-powered magnet and sticks it up the kid's nose and out comes this even less tiny metal toy cat.
The two-year-old was only sending the troops up to save the cat.
In seventeen years, HE'LL be a BYU grad.
