http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-19291258 This 15 year old boy sent an idea for testing for cancer to 200 college professors, and 199 of them rejected it, and yet his cancer test is 168 times more accurate, and thousands of times cheaper, and thousands of times faster. It costs only a few pennies for the test, so most doctors office now only need to spend $1.50 a week for the test.

I told you, I told you, I told you so...that our teachers are idiots.... nothing says failure more than going to college and then failing at self reliance and then becoming another school lecturing idiot!

My feeling on this is that we are going to have to face some very serious issues concerning education in the future. Because what Jack Andraka says is very true - we no longer need an educational environment to inform ourselves, the educational establishment no longer possesses this monopoly of the keys to a successful future. The beauty of all this, is that it allows us to pursue our own interests, to even get into the zone, without the encumbrance of all those intellectually debilitating wasteful hours spent punching the curriculum ticket of items uninteresting to the benefit as lifeblood of the establishment.

To free the mind, we must free ourselves of this establishment.
