11-Year Old Astrophysics Fan a College Graduate

Well, it now appears that an 11-year-old has raised the bar so high that others entering college can just give up. Yes, we said others entering college, because Moshe Kai Cavalin, 11, has just graduated from  East Los Angeles College, with a 4.0 GPA, no less.

His favorite subject: astrophysics. Yep, we pull open astrophysics books every day for casual reading. Cavalin is the only child of a Taiwanese mother and an Israeli father.

To embarrass us still further, Cavalin is also an accomplished martial artist, who has won several national martial arts championships. As opposed to sports figures, his idols are Albert Einstein and Bruce Lee (well, OK, a movie star; what can you expect?).

Now that he's graduated, he's going to slack off a little: in the next six months to a year he's going to take up scuba diving, write a book for kids on how to succeed in school, and work on his martial arts skills. But no video games!

"I feel it's a waste of time playing video games because it's not helping humanity in any way," he said. Ooof, HH readers probably don't appreciate that one too much.
