An exception to the age policy?
We could us a smart kid like this. Read all the way to the end:
(Newser) – There was a mistake in a map at the Metropolitan Museum of Art—but nobody noticed until 13-year-old Benjamin Lerman Coady visited with his mom. The Connecticut seventh-grader and history buff was checking out a permanent exhibit on the Byzantine Empire when he spotted the problem: A map that purported to show the empire at its height was missing Spain and a section of Africa, the Hartford Courant reports. He told a docent, who referred him to the front desk to report his finding on a form.
"The front desk didn't believe me," Coady says. "I'm only a kid"—and not all the error reports the museum receives are correct, says a curator. In this case, however, Coady was on the money. After several months, he got an email from the Byzantine art curator. "You are, of course, correct," it said. The curator invited him to visit again and meet her. He may have "the makings of a young historian," she notes. But he has different plans: "I want to move to Greenwich and open a modern exotic car shop."

Kids are geniuses. Remember that 2nd grader who saved something like 100 lives by recognizing the warning signs of a tsunami approaching? She was able to tell her parents who got everyone off the beach.

Dang, at 13 he's already nuts about cars? He's jumped my insanity by 3 years, it wasn't till I was 16 that I got infected (6 yrs ago). I feel sorry for the kid, he's gonna go through a long time of suffering from the insanity before he can really do anything about it. That's the only complaint I have with autoholism, if you can't really do anything about it, it's like watching a really hot babe strip to nothing and dance in front of you, while you're handcuffed to the bed. It does give you the drive and inspiration to achieve your dreams though, to do what no one thinks you can pull off.
