I am skeptical of this teenage genius business.

Wunderkinds are notoriously unreliable -- their abilities miraculously disappear when they become adults. Even Mozart's abilities did not impress the courts of Europe once he was an adult and Mozart is a wunderkind who did not regress into mediocrity.

I guess we will wait and see.
