In other news, Briefly News reported on 12-year-old American kid, Caleb Anderson, a genius child who already knew over 250 words at only nine months old. By 11 months, he was speaking and reading English fluently.

Levelling up even further, little Caleb was fluent in Mandarin, Spanish and French at only three years old. His parents, who were wowed by their child's amazing intelligence, quickly tested his IQ, which led him to get accepted into MENSA, a high IQ society reserved for only the smartest of the smart.

Caleb quickly went through a lot of learning material meant for children his age and then even material meant for children older than him. Soon he became bored with what was being offered in regular school, explaining to his parents that he was ready for college.
