    You predicted the existence of a force that can only act across the width of an atomic nucleus?

    No, he predicted there would be a breakthrough leading us to the realization that there was something we previously did not yet understand.

    Face it, TPB is a freaking genius.

    I vote for a 100% meritocratic system and let the chips fall where they may.

    Then it comes down to work habits more than aptitude. You really want us to be like Japan ? Whichever parents can get the most work out of their kids between the ages of 4 and 10 wins ? Also, I don't think it's well understood that how early you can acquire certain skills is not as well tied to later performance as people think (yes there is a correlation of course). I've seen Math students who are mediocre in 9th or 10th grade but who were winning Math contests (arithmetic) back in 5th or 6th grade.

    I guess the genius kids that are little lazy, and don't want to work 40 hours a week outside of school will be out of luck.
