Comment Re:Flame-bait summary? (Score 1) 186

Whenever I read submissions like this, I wonder why they put a sentence like "genius in flunked out of ...". Unless the area they were a genius in was the same one he/she failed at, it seems kind of flame-bait - trying to start an "school is useless - look at these outliers" discussion.

I don't think that's what it's trying to say at all. My reading is more like "look, even geniuses can have trouble in school."
